Senator Tuberville joins Fox & Friends to talk Talladega.
On the importance of Talladega to the Country and the Economy:
“Not just Alabama – for the country, you know, NASCAR has been huge for our country. It was built on the backs of working people – people in their garages, putting cars together and trying to outrace each other. And now, you see what we have now on the track there in Talladega.”
“It brings of working people kind of together. For years, that thing has drawn 150,000, close to 200,000 people, not for one day but for a week.”
“It’s just a great sport. It brings everybody together. There’s no animosity. There’s nobody talking politics. It’s just going and having fun.”
On President Biden’s First 100 Days in Office:
“They’re just trying to control our country. You know, I’ve been up there three months, and I have never seen a country be so downgraded as much as it has been by the Democrats, just in three-month period. Look how far we dropped. Look at our border, which is totally out of control. Somebody tell me how we voted a guy in that said he was a moderate, he was going to bring in unity. What about 75 million people that voted for Donald Trump? Do we not count anymore?”
“Joe Biden, please tell me where God plays a role in your America now… We better get our moral values back in this country, and it starts with God. If we don’t, we’re not going to make it as a country as we all know it.”
Senator Tommy Tuberville represents Alabama in the United States Senate and is a member of the Senate Armed Services, Agriculture, Veterans’ Affairs, and HELP Committees.
