The AP News covered the story, see what they had to share:
President Donald Trump endorsed U.S. Sen. Tim Scott’s 2022 reelection bid Tuesday, continuing to make clear his intent to remain a dominant force in Republican Party politics.
Trump issued a statement through his Save America PAC, saying Scott had his “Complete and Total Endorsement” and complimenting Scott’s work on behalf of the military, law enforcement and veterans.
The only Black Republican in the Senate and one of its three Black members, Scott previously served one term in the U.S. House and has been in the Senate since then-Gov. Nikki Haley appointed him in late 2012 to succeed Jim DeMint.
Elected to his first full term in 2016, Scott has said that the 2022 Senate race would be his last. Scott has been mentioned as a potential candidate for the GOP presidential nomination in 2024, and his name appeared in the results of a straw poll conducted at last week’s Conservative Political Action Conference.
Trump hasn’t just endorsed Sen. Scott but has also endorsed several other Republicans.

The Hill got the scoop too:
President Trump on Tuesday endorsed Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) for reelection.
Scott, a first-term senator and the only Black Republican in the Senate worked closely with Trump on a police reform bill that was blocked by Senate Democrats, and he routinely defended the former president’s policies over the four years he was in office.
“It is my great honor to give Senator Tim Scott of South Carolina my complete and total endorsement,” Trump said in a statement. “He is both an outstanding senator and person who works tirelessly for the people of his great state, and the USA. Strong on the military, law enforcement, loves our vets, protects our Second Amendment and our borders. Tim will continue to do an OUTSTANDING job for our country!”
