Perdue spent years outsourcing American jobs to foreign factories, “especially in Asia”
ATLANTA — Today, as the Atlanta Journal-Constitution put Senator David Perdue “under the microscope for his own connections to China” leading Dollar General’s “aggressive expansion into China” and using Hong Kong as “a base to build an Asian operation,” a campaign spokesman touted that Perdue was “proud” of his years spent in China outsourcing jobs.
While “fearmongering” about China has been a “central theme” of Perdue’s campaign, a HuffPost report revealed that Perdue’s new biographical video is “nearly identical” to the one from 2014 except he deleted mention of his years of experience in Asia, even removing a picture of him and his wife at the Great Wall of China.
“Perdue is so out of touch with hardworking Georgians that his campaign brags about his toxic record of outsourcing jobs for corporations during his years in Hong Kong while Georgians are out of work amid a pandemic,” said Braxton Brewington, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “While Perdue may be proud of his years sending American jobs overseas, Georgians certainly aren’t proud of Perdue.”
