that is why president trump and i need david perdue and kelly loeffler back in the republican majority in the united states senate and are you with me? we need georgia to send these two great senators back to washington because of who they are and because of all that we've accomplished together and because a republican senate majority could be the last line of defense and to preserve all we've done for this country to revive our economy and preserve all the god even liberties we hold dear and just going to take two of them. starting with the fourth-generation be able to grow up on a family farm in the heartland and she got here to georgia just as soon as she heard about it and build up her own company and broke barriers and businesses to become one of the most successful businesswoman in georgia and in
a short time i can tell you firsthand she is emerged as one of the most courageous conservative voices on capitol hill and we need senator kelly loeffler back in the united states senate. [cheering and applause] and then there is the son of macon who literally worked his way up to the very top of the business world and could have retired and relaxed but felt a calling to serve georgia. literally, spent 40 years is one of the most successful business leaders, not just in the state but in this country but stepped forward and i can tell you firsthand in his short term in the united states senate he has emerged as an man of integrity,a man who has fought every day for
the conservative principles that make georgia great. we need senator david perdue back in washington dc. [cheering and applause] president trump and i support your two senators because of who they are but we w also are here like you are because we served in washington dc together. four years ago we inherited a military that a been hollowed owt by reckless budget cuts and an economy struggling to break out of the slowest recovery since the great depression and terrorism was on the rise and we witnessed the study assault onva our most cherished values. with the strong support of david perdue and kelly loeffler under the leadership of president donald trump we rebuild our military and we revised our
economy and secured our border, stood with law enforcement and fought for life and liberty and the constitution of the united states of america. [cheering and applause] we made incredible progress and being here in muscogee county, home to fort benning. [cheering and applause] i could not be more proud to report to you with the senators and their strong support we restored the democracy and president trump signed the largest increases international defense since the days of ronald reagan we are finally giving our soldiers, airmen, marines and coast guard the support they need to. it is true. none of that would've been possible without the strong support of senator david perdue on the senate armed services committee. enqueue. [cheering and applause]se the last administration saw years of scandal at the va and
you remember, scandal that shocked the conscience of a nation and when president trump came into office with the support of your two senators those days are over. president trump has signed the most sweeping reform in the va in 50 years and we fired 5000 va employees that were not giving our veterans the care that they earned veterans choice is now available for every veteran in america. from proceeds on the veterans affairs committee senator kelly loeffler was there every step of the way. [cheering and applause] after the slowest recovery in some 75 years and the support of georgia senators this president revived our economy. we cut taxes and we rolled back regulations and we fought for free and fair trade, unleased american energy and in our first three years businesses, large
and small, created 7 million good paying jobs including three to 50000 jobs right here in the peach state. [cheering and applause] with the support of your two senators in our first three years we had a blue-collar boom going. and then the coronavirus struck from china. [crowd boos] with a solid foundation that we had poured and with their support every day we launched the greatest national mobilization since world war ii and we reinvented testing and the distribution of billions of medical supplies to hospitals and nurses we provided support directly to families and small businessesma impacted in this remarkable to think that after losing 22 million jobs at the height of this pandemic with that foundation that we poured we've already seen 12 million americans go back to work and we are opening up america again. [cheering and applause]
while the other side said it cannot be done the strong support of your two senators this week america witnessed the beginning of the end of the coronavirus pandemic and we made history in the first coronavirus vaccine is being administered in every state i in the union. david perdue and ellie leffler were there every single day putting the health of georgia first. [cheering and applause] when it comes to the rule of law in our most cherished liberties i cannot be more proud to serve with the president and to stand with two senators who have helped us appoint more than 220 conservatives to our federal courts and they are all men and women who will uphold the
liberties enshrined in our constitution like the freedom of religion and the freedom of speech and the second amendment right to keep and bear arms and it's amazing to think that none of that would've been possible without the consistent supporton of senator david perde and senator kelly loeffler. it was georgia senators who were there and all along the way when we confirmed more than 200 judges and when we confirmed three justices to the supreme court including justice amy coney barrett and you know, your member under the last administration our values and our freedoms were under regular assault in the last administration trembled the real liberties of americans on a regular basis and they compromised the conscious cries of doctors and nurses and they've hauled a group of nuns
known as the little sisters of the poor into federal court and this is to force them to economize their faith and live under the mandates of obamacarea in fact, we saw that religious intolerance two years ago when amy coney barrett was up for her on the court of appeals. do you remember? the democrat leader of the judiciary committee actually said she was concernedrn about y cody baratz christian faith. she said and i quote, the dogma lives loudly within you. hollywood liberals have been attacking judge barrett ever since. i've got news for the democrats in washington and their friends in hollywood. that dogma lives loudly in me and that dogma lives loudly in you. the right to live and worship
according to the dictates of our faith lives loudly in the constitution of the united states of america. for our liberties, for our freedoms we need senator david perdue and senator kelly loeffler back in the republican majority in the united states senate. [cheering and applause] i thank you will know the stakes in the selection have never been higher and the choice has never been clearer and where david perdue and kelly loeffler strong for national defense john also off and rafael warnock will caught our national defense to fund their big government programsmsam. you just watch. where david perdue and kelly loeffler cut taxes, john also off and rafael warnock won two ways taxes on working families and businesses in the state of georgia. as you may have seen rafael warnock is on tape calling members of the u.s.
senate gangsters just for voting to cut taxes on families and businesses in the peach state. [crowd boos] where david perdue and kelly loeffler support our military and radical liberal rafael warnock alone has demeaned our military and repeatedly defended the anti-semitic rhetoric of the reverend jeremiah rice. in fact, rafael warnock called our most cherished ally the strong democratic jewish state of israel an apartheid state. he compared their law enforcement to east german storm troopers. that cannot -- i cannot be more proud that the strong support of kelly loeffler and david perdue to serve alongside a president who moved the american embassy to jerusalem and has stood without apology for the jewish state of israel.
where john ossoff and rafael warnock support abortion on demand and taxpayer-funded abortion up too the moment of birth david perdue, kelly loeffler, president trump and mike pence will always stand for the right to life. [cheering and applause] you will know what the stakes are here in georgia and chuck schumer said it the other day and could not be clearer, he said now we take georgia and then we change america. [crowd boos] let's send a message to chuck schumer and those washington democrats. we will keep georgia. we will save the senate and then we will save america. [cheering and applause] you know, i saw joe biden was in atlanta the other day. [crowd boos]
