Senator David Perdue to Meet With President-Elect Donald Trump

Senator David Perdue plans to travel to Trump Tower on Friday to meet with the president-elect. The purpose of the meeting, according to Perdue press secretary Caroline Vanvick, is to explore the ways that the senator, who was one Trump’s earliest and loudest supporters during the campaign, can work together in the Senate.

“As a fellow businessman and outsider himself,” VanVick said in a statement, “Senator Perdue was invited to Trump Tower to discuss working together to advance President-elect Trump’s 100-day plan in the Senate and changing the direction of our country.”

Trump transition team communications director Jason Miller commented, “Looking ahead to tomorrow, the president-elect and vice president-elect will hold meetings in New York beginning at 11am with Senator David Perdue from Georgia who was a big supporter of ours on the campaign trail. He’s a fantastic ally for the president-elect.”

Both Perdue and Trump ran as Washington outsiders, and share some common goals, including repealing the Affordable Care Act, replacing the tax code, and implementing term limits for members of Congress.

First order of business for Perdue. Shut up about deficit spending. Tax cuts for the rich and increased military spending are going to increase it.

He’s more likely to ditch the jean jacket than he is to ditch his intentionally obtuse positions on defecit spending.
