Perdue spent years outsourcing American jobs to foreign factories, “especially in Asia”
ATLANTA — While fear mongering about China has been a “central theme” of Senator David Perdue’s campaign, a new HuffPost report shows in his newly released biographical video, “nearly identical” to his campaign video in 2014, Perdue conveniently leaves out his years of experience in Asia, even removing a picture of him and his wife at the Great Wall of China. In an effort to hide his own record, Perdue also cuts the mention of the years he spent doing business in Hong Kong from the 2014 video for this year’s update.
Perdue has had “significant work with Asia” throughout his career, where his job was essentially to outsource manufacturing operations to cheaper foreign factories, especially in Asia.
The report on Perdue’s years of close business ties with China comes as Perdue has repeated “outrageously false” claims against his opponent that a chorus of independent fact checkers have called out as a “flatly false” lie, saying Perdue is “insistent on misinterpreting” the facts and “should be ashamed of himself.”
“Senator Perdue has used fear mongering about China throughout his campaign to distract from the years of experience he has working in Asia and sending American jobs overseas,” said Braxton Brewington, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Georgians can’t trust Perdue because he only tells the part of the story he wants voters to know while hiding the truth. Perdue will say or do anything to get reelected.”
