U.S. Senator David Perdue Statement On President Donald J. Trump’s Candidacy For Re-Election
ATLANTA, GA – Ahead of the final night of the 2020 Republican National Convention, U.S. Senator David Perdue, the Original Outsider, released the following statement on President Donald J. Trump’s nomination for re-election:
“Four years ago, the American people elected Donald J. Trump to be President of the United States. Since then, he’s worked every day to change the direction of the country for the better. Like me, he’s an outsider from the business world who’s focused on getting results and expanding opportunity for everyone.
Under Joe Biden and Barack Obama, we had eight years of the worst economic output in U.S. history. Democrats also disinvested in our military and withdrew from our allies around the world. President Trump came in and we created the greatest economic turnaround in U.S. history. At the same time, President Trump strengthened our military, reengaged with our allies, and stood up to our adversaries. Before COVID-19, we had created 7.5 million new jobs, achieved the lowest unemployment in 50 years, and the lowest African-American, Asian, and Hispanic unemployment ever measured. We’ve proven that what we believe in actually works and we will do it again.
We will get our economy going again after this unprecedented crisis, but to do that, we have to stand up to the radical Democrats who are trying to perpetrate a socialist agenda that’s failed everywhere it’s been tried around the world. Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Jon Ossoff want to disinvest in our military, defund the police, abolish ICE, enable sanctuary cities, move to socialized medicine, and enact the Green New Deal. They want to take away our freedom and they will destroy the free-enterprise system.
Despite the revisionist history Democrats tried to sell last week, this week you heard about the historic progress we’ve made and the optimistic vision for our future. We have to re-elect President Trump and Vice President Pence so we can continue changing the direction of our country. I’m proud to support our President, and I look forward to continuing the fight alongside him to Make America Great Again.”
