ICYMI: Senator Perdue Welcomes Ivanka Trump To Georgia
Yesterday, U.S. Senator David Perdue welcomed Ivanka Trump to Acworth, Georgia for a “fireside chat” about the historic results achieved in President Trump’s first term and what’s at stake in this upcoming election. Before their conversation, Ivanka Trump visited Pizza by Fuscos, an Acworth restaurant that was saved by a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan.
Check out some of the coverage:
vanka Trump, the president’s daughter, met with Perdue for a public “conversation” Tuesday afternoon in Acworth. They touched on the president’s pandemic response, economic record and plans for a “great American comeback” if he’s reelected.
“We all know what’s at stake Nov. 3,” Trump told about 80 supporters gathered at the Cowan Historic Mill. “That’s why we are fighting so hard. We will leave it on the field to make sure our president, my father, secures four more years.”
Later, [Ivanka] spoke about a wide range of issues with Perdue at the historic mill. Among other things, they agreed COVID-19 is the top issue in the final weeks of the campaign. Not surprisingly, both said the president has not gotten enough credit for his actions to stem the pandemic.

Interviewed by Perdue in front of 88 attendees, [Ivanka] Trump lauded her father’s policies and bills signed into law in his tenure in office, particularly those affecting the economy. She said in January, before the pandemic had arrived in the U.S., the country was experiencing record lows in unemployment among veterans, people with disabilities and those without college degrees.
Shannon Perren, an insurance broker in Cobb, enjoyed the event.
“I thought this event was very energetic,” Perren said. “It inspired me to go vote and protect policies that are incredibly important to me, my employees and my family.”
Joannie Jimenez, a stay-at-home mom in Norcross, said one thing she was particularly interested in was when Ivanka Trump said her father established permanent funding for historically Black colleges and universities.
“I believe everything she was saying is true,” Jimenez said. “I’m excited; it was really good.”

Ivanka Trump visited Acworth Tuesday for a discussion with Senator David Perdue, bringing together a crowd of more than 70 people to campaign for her father.
Another couple of dozen people were surprised when the president’s daughter stopped by an Acworth pizza shop.
The owners of Pizza by Fuscos told her the PPP loan kept their doors open.
Just minutes later, nearly 100 people gathered together at this outdoor deck at the Cowan Historic Mill to listen to Senator David Perdue and Mrs. Trump’s conversation.
COVID-19’s hold on the country and the economy were two topics at the forefront of this discussion.
Both Senator Perdue and Mrs. Trump took the occasional jab at former Vice President Joe Biden, directly comparing the pre-COVID-19 economy to that of former President Obama’s.
“For the worker and for the business owner, this was so important, as they fought back something that was no fault of their own,” she said.

The president’s daughter Ivanka Trump traveled here to Georgia today, making a couple stops in Acworth.
During her visit in downtown Acworth today, her first stop was at Pizza by Fuscos on South Main street where she greeted customers and spoke with the owners about how their small business is recovering during the pandemic. She even had a little fun making her own pizza.
And then she went over to the Cowan Historic Mill and had a one-on-one conversation with Senator David Perdue about the issues facing Georgians and our nation leading up to the election. There were about three dozen supporters on hand, all wearing masks and listening to the discussion focused on the Supreme Court nominations, the economy, criminal justice reform, the child tax credit, which Ivanka advised the president on, and of course COVID-19.
