“In the first hour of this convention, they hit so many policy areas, basically more policy areas in the first hour than you saw detailed in the Democratic convention over four days,” said Perino, a former White House press secretary and host of "The Daily Briefing."
"There was a lot to show about the president’s record.”
Perino went on to describe Scott – whose “powerful” closing remarks highlighted the importance of developing economic opportunity zones and discussed how President Trump’s criminal justice reform law fixed disparities created by Democratic nominee Joe Biden – as a "national treasure."

“His story is incredible, but also he is able to show a contrast between the Republicans and the Democrats with a smile," she said. "And there’s something to be said for that.”
Wallace, the host of "Fox News Sunday," praised Scott for making the case that some conservative ideas are in the best interest of minorities.
"[He was] Basically saying to a lot of people out there, whether they’re minorities, whether they’re suburban women, you know, there may be a stereotype to this Trump base – look again.”
