“David was a very key figure in…establishing relationships with the Chinese government…”
Perdue has made fearmongering about China central to his campaign
ATLANTA — Today, the Washington Post highlights former corporate CEO Senator David Perdue’s extensive “work with the Chinese government” and his “proud” years of work in Asia outsourcing American jobs overseas while enriching himself. The devastating report notes Perdue has made several poor attempts throughout his campaign to “shift the focus away” from his corporate experience in Asia as he desperately attempts to align himself with Trump, who has “blasted corporate executives” like Perdue who move American jobs overseas.
According to the report, Perdue was “a very key figure in terms of establishing relationships with the Chinese government,” a stunning clash with his repeated “fearmongering” about China which has become a “central theme” of his campaign. The story only adds to previous scrutiny of Perdue by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and others who have put Perdue “under the microscope for his own connections to China” for leading Dollar General’s “aggressive expansion into China.”
“Perdue’s toxic record of outsourcing American jobs is on full display and Georgians can see Perdue’s top priority for what it is –– to enrich himself,” said Braxton Brewington, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Unlike Perdue, Georgians are not proud of Perdue’s years sending American jobs overseas.”
