GOP Sen Responds to Kelly’s Civil War Comments Says There Was “No Compromise to Make”

Sen. Tim Scott, R-SC< on Tuesday criticized White House Chief of Staff John Kelly's comments about the Civil War and said there “was no compromise to make” in the situation, which was fought over slavery. “We need to stop relitigating and referencing the Civil War as if there was some moral conundrum,” the South Carolina Senator told Talking Points Memo. Kelly made headlines on Monday when he said the Civil War was started due to a “lack of an ability to compromise.” “It was always loyalty to state first, back in those days, and now it’s different today,” Kelly said during an interview with Fox News. “And men of women of good faith on both sides made their stand, where their conscience had them make their stand.” “There was no compromise to make – only a choice between continuing slavery and ending it,” Scott said. “We need to move forward together, instead of letting the divisions of the past continue to force us apart.” via Talking Points Memo
