National emergency declaration

Yesterday, President Trump declared a national emergency in response to the coronavirus pandemic. What does that mean? This declaration will mobilize additional resources to help combat the spread of the virus and safeguard public health. It will give doctors, hospitals, and healthcare providers maximum flexibility to respond to the virus and care for patients. This is the right move by President Trump. We want to make sure federal, state, and local authorities have every resource they need… Continue Reading

Fort Benning a finalist for new Army HQ

Georgia's own Fort Benning is one of three finalists for a new Army headquarters. With its unmatched training facilities and strong community support network, Fort Benning is the ideal location for this new headquarters. U.S. Senator Kelly Loeffler and I wrote a letter to Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy urging him to select Fort Benning as the new headquarters. The headquarters would be the fourth of its kind and could bring more than 600 soldiers to the Columbus area by October 2020. … Continue Reading

Senator Perdue's op-ed in the AJC

In case you missed it... By acquitting Trump, Senate protected our republic By U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) February 6, 2020 https://bit.ly/2ujiswZ This week, the U.S. Senate turned the page on one of the most troubling chapters in our country's history. Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives attempted to use impeachment as a partisan political weapon. The Senate prevented this from happening. From day one, House Democrats were only concerned with overturning the 2016 electi… Continue Reading

Time to vote

House managers claimed to have "overwhelming evidence" to convict the president. They did not. Let's be clear: Nothing in these two articles rises to the level of impeachment. The House failed to prove their case. Now, they want to redo their investigation in the Senate. The American people are over this nonsense. It's time to vote on acquittal so we can move on to real priorities. I joined Sandra Smith on America's Newsroom to discuss the impeachment trial. Watch our conversation here.… Continue Reading

Fairness

It's ironic that Democrats are suddenly interested in "fairness" after denying President Trump due process in the U.S. House of Representatives. For Democrats, this has never been about finding the truth or protecting the Republic. This is all about overturning the 2016 election, impacting the 2020 presidential election, and gaining the majority in the U.S. Senate. The House's job is to investigate. The Senate's job is to rule on the evidence the House brings us. That is exactly what we in… Continue Reading

Our free-market system works

Right now, some people are questioning the free-market principles our country was founded on. The facts are clear: our free-market system works. Thanks to President Trump's business-friendly leadership, we've gotten our economy moving again: 7 million new jobs created. Lowest unemployment in 50 years. Highest middle-class income ever measured. Despite this historic success, some people still want to convert America into a socialist state. Folks, we cannot let that happen. I am… Continue Reading
