On Monday, in response to Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) engagement, former President Donald Trump stated before a multitude of supporters that he never imagined such an event would occur.
“Today was a big story, the biggest story out there. He’s engaged to be married. We never thought this was going to happen. What’s going on?” Trump said.
“A very, very fine person, a man that we work so closely, and I work so closely with. He was in the Senate, he’s been there now a long time, and one of the most respected people in all of Washington. Senator Tim Scott, South Carolina.” he continued.
Ahead of his Saturday engagement, Trump introduced Scott to the stage at a campaign rally in Laconia, New Hampshire.
After a year of dating, Scott proposed to Mindy Noce on a shore in Kiawah Island, South Carolina, on Saturday.
During his presidential campaign last year, Scott’s bachelorhood became a contentious issue, with some critics wondering why the 58-year-old had never been married or had children.
