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


Coronavirus update

Good afternoon, I wanted to give you an update on the U.S. government's response to the coronavirus. Last night, President Trump addressed the nation and announced additional measures to protect the health and safety of the American people. At the beginning of the outbreak, the Administration restricted travel from China and established advisories for severely impacted areas like Italy and South Korea. This early action gave us time to prepare for the virus here at home. Now, to prevent ne… Continue Reading

The Administration responded aggressively to the initial coronavirus outbreak and has taken strong action to safeguard public health.

The CDC is on the front lines of our coronavirus response, and I'm proud of the work they do every day to keep… Continue Reading

The website was developed by the Departments of Education, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, and Justice, in coordination with school security experts. It's designed to empower parents, teachers, and administrators to make informed decisions about the best ways to keep their schools safe. As the son of two publ… Continue Reading

In addition, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced the port will receive a $34.6 million grant for critical infrastructure improvements. After 20 years of trying to deepen this port, the Trump Administration has Georgia's top infrastructure project on track for completion. The Port of Savannah is the most efficient container port in North America. It's the … 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 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


State of the Union

While Democrats have been focused on impeachment, President Trump has been focused on results. Tonight, the president laid out a powerful vision for our country that builds on the successes of the past three years. The results speak for themselves: 7 million new jobs Highest middle-class income in U.S. history Lowest unemployment in 50 years 2.5 million people have risen out of poverty Historic trade deals with South Korea, Japan, Mexico, Canada, and China 3.1% pay raise for troops … 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



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


ICYMI: The Senate is poised to conduct a fair trial

Today, the U.S. Senate is poised to begin a fair impeachment trial. You will see a dramatic difference from the illegitimate process that was conducted by the U.S. House of Representatives. After 119 days of the House's investigation, this week will be the first time America gets to hear President Trump's defense. I joined NBC's Meet the Press to talk about this week's impeachment proceedings in the Senate. Watch my conversation with Chuck Todd here.… Continue Reading


With all the noise coming out of Washington…

With all the noise coming out of Washington, I wanted to make sure you saw this… In the last few days, the United States has approved two historic trade deals. Phase One Agreement with China U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) These new trade agreements will change the way we do business with our trading partners around the world. They will help American workers, farmers, and businesses gain equal access to other markets and help continue our country's economic turnaround. Pr… Continue Reading


Impeachment Update

After delaying for 28 days, Speaker Pelosi finally sent the articles of impeachment to the U.S. Senate. Let's be clear: Democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives deprived President Trump of due process and basic fairness throughout the entire process. Now, the Senate will have an opportunity to handle this properly. We are fully prepared to conduct a fair trial and give this president his day in court. Our goal is to handle this as quickly as possible. Congress has wasted 113 days since… Continue Reading


Articles of impeachment: send it or dismiss it.

It's been 22 days since House Democrats voted to impeach President Trump. Nancy Pelosi and House Democrats have continually described the need to impeach the president as "urgent." Now they've been withholding the articles for over three weeks. Meanwhile, the Senate is ready to conduct a fair trial. It's high time to proceed with the articles of impeachment. We need to move on and get back to work for the American people. P.S. This week I took action and introduced a resolution that wou… Continue Reading


2020 is a chance to build on our momentum

We have new trade deals across the world that will directly benefit American workers, farmers, and businesses. In October, U.S. Special Forces took out ISIS' top leaders, making the world a much safer place. Our results-oriented at… Continue Reading
