Florida Senator Rick Scott is calling on President Biden to resign from the Oval Office over his disastrous handling of the economy.
Fox News reports:
“Joe Biden has destroyed America’s economy,” Scott says in the ad. “It’s time to be honest with the American people. Joe Biden is unfit for office and should resign.”
The ad features a video of the president referring to Sen. Scott as being from Wisconsin, and warns that Biden is forcing America into a recession. In a previous ad, Scott called Biden “incompetent and confused.”
The ads are part of a seven-figure television buy to promote Scott’s “Rescue America” plan: an 12-point guide for how Republicans can “save this country” should they reclaim power after the midterms. It covers areas from education, to immigration, to the economy.
Scott’s “Rescue America” plan has received harsh criticism from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
In a tweet, Biden called it “Senator Rick Scott’s ultra-MAGA agenda.” Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell criticized its call to require low-income Americans to pay at least some federal income taxes, which Scott later dropped from the plan.
