In response to the engagement announcement made by Senator Tim Scott, former President Donald Trump expressed his astonishment at a rally held in New Hampshire.
Trump extended an invitation to Scott to participate in the event from Laconia, New Hampshire, and recognized the South Carolina senator’s recent declaration.
“Today was a big story, the biggest story out there. He’s engaged to be married,” said Trump. “We never thought this was going to happen. What’s going on?”
“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.”
Scott exclaimed, “If you want four more years of Donald Trump, let me hear you scream!” as the rallygoers applauded.
“If you want the race to be over tomorrow, let me hear you scream! How many of y’all want four more years of low inflation under Donald Trump?! How many of y’all want four more years of low crime and high law and order under Donald J. Trump?! How many of y’all want me to stop talking so you can hear from your next president, Donald J. Trump? Four more years!” he said.
The ex-presidential candidate for the Republican nomination declared his intention to marry his longtime companion, Mindy Noce, subsequent to his proposal to her on Kiawah Island, South Carolina, as reported by Fox News. The competitor personally validated the announcement in their discussion with presenter Trey Gowdy. The individual described the proposal as a significant event in his life, comparable to the day he converted to Christianity.
Scott stated in the Sunday interview, “As a guy who is mostly an introvert and on the quiet side, having to have a conversation about the engagement is a little, you know, uncomfortable in a way, but it’s the most exciting thing I’ll do with my life besides making Jesus my Lord.”
“I’ve been very patient and prayerful, and I’m really excited and somewhat nervous, and I couldn’t be more thankful for having found a soul mate and someone who shares a lot of the same interests, passions, and goals that I do,” he explained.
Scott told former South Carolina U.S. congressman Gowdy, “Going to the beach and getting on one knee and asking Mindy to marry me was so much more important than anything else, and I wanted to make sure that that sacred day would not be disturbed by anything political.”
The individuals first became acquainted in a Bible study group that commenced subsequent to their attendance at church. Noce, a thriving South Carolina real estate developer, is the mother of three children. Scott introduced her to a national audience in a brief manner during the November Republican presidential debate.

“My joke is as soon as I saw her picture, I figured it out. But the truth is, about two weeks into it, I knew there was something very different about her and her faith,” he said. “In our first conversation that went about an hour and a half or two, we ended up deciding to do a Bible study together.”
Curiously, Scott has decided to support Trump instead of another GOP primary contender and his own state’s former governor, Nikki Haley. CONTINUE READING…
