May 21, 2022

ORLANDO, Fla.–Today, Senator Rick Scott hosted a roundtable with local officials and Colombian business leaders in Orlando, Florida to discuss to importance of America's partnership with Colombia, and why the U.S. must continue to promote freedom and democracy across Latin America. 


Senator Rick Scott said, “The United States and Colombia share a strong commitment to promoting security, prosperity, human rights and democracy across the Western Hemisphere. Colombia is our greatest ally in Latin America and we must stand together for freedom. Unfortunately, Joe Biden has abandoned Latin America—and his disgusting appeasement of brutal dictators in Cuba and Venezuela only serves to destabilize the region. I’m proud to stand with everyone here today as we work together to strengthen support for our great ally, Colombia. I will never stop fighting for freedom and democracy in Latin America.”
