On Following His Doctor’s Recommendation to Quarantine
“My wife and I are doing just fine, we tested negative… We had someone test positive yesterday morning, and according to CDC guidelines and our doctor’s recommendations, with an abundance of caution, we have decided to go into quarantine these last few days. It’s terrible timing, but we are not going to miss a step. We’re going to participate in all these events as if I were there… We washed our hands, watched our distance, and we’ve been wearing masks, following all the protocols. This is just part of the year we’ve been in…
“I want to go back to what I heard that my opponent just said: he defined the problem but he has never offered a solution for this COVID crisis. As a matter of fact, when he was pushed on it in a debate, by himself, he said, ‘I don’t want to get bogged in the details.’ As a matter of fact, we were in the details providing $47 billion for our state which saved a million and a half jobs, he opposed it at the same time his father took a loan to save his business. The Democrats don’t want to talk about the issues. They are really all about hiding the agenda they are trying to perpetrate, and distracting voters from the real issues.”
On Additional COVID Relief for Georgians
“First of all, this should have been done back in September… Some $15 billion in the PPP came to Georgia, and as I said, saved 1.5 million jobs here. We knew that in the fall we would need more help, tried to get it, and the Democrats blocked it several times going into the presidential election. They didn’t want to give President Trump a win. Now we’ve been pushing in the last two months, we finally got a compromise. Certainly we need more help than the $600. The $2,000, I fully support, the President’s right.”
On Ossoff’s China Problem
“[Peter Doocy] is a serious reporter, that’s why the question needs to be asked. But it’s not asked by any of the liberal media that’s out there. It’s amazing to me that you can have the Eric Swalwell crisis, the Hunter Biden crisis, and ignore the Jon Ossoff crisis. This is clearly a pattern of activity from the Chinese Communist Party. They identified Jon Ossoff — after his 2017 attempt to run for the U.S. House and lost — they identified him as an ambitious young politician on the Democratic side that they probably could get influence. So they hired him and he worked for two years for this propaganda company, the Chinese Communist Party, Julie, and he hid it from the people of Georgia during his primary. He might not have won that primary had he fully disclosed that. He got caught, he then disclosed it, lied about it and lied about it again, and he still didn’t answer Peter’s question. If you notice that, he never has an answer to that question.”
