Loeffler, who is in a tight Senate race, campaigned on his alliance with Trump, stating that he voted 100% with the president.
Loeffler told CNN on Wednesday that there are “no” issues in which he disagrees with the president. When a reporter from NBC’s Atlanta-based television station, Doug Richards, asked if he disagreed with Trump’s comments about sexual harassment of women, Loeffler brushed aside the question, saying he agreed with Trump’s approach Because she puts America in first place from day one. ”
When Richards pressured, Loeffler asked what the reporter was referring to. Richards said of Trump’s statements that “sexual assault on women in person.”
The comments changed the final week of the 2016 campaign. After Trump’s victory, the Women’s March of Washington featured countless women in “kittens” – pink, cat-eared hats, which noted Trump’s arrogance and re-enacting the word “positively” Tried.
Loeffler said she was unfamiliar with the president’s comments, to which a CNN reporter said Richards was referring to what Trump had said on Access Hollywood. But Loeffler again refused to create any distance between himself and Trump, and instead attacked the Democratic presidential candidate.
“This president is fighting for America,” she said. “That’s what I’m fighting for – to make sure every American has a chance to live the American dream and against the socialist policies that Joe Biden is spying on every day.”
In December 2019, Gov. Brian Kemp hired Loeffler to fill the seat of Sen. Johnny Isakson, who retired for health reasons. Loeffler is now running in a special election to serve the rest of the term, with all candidates facing each other on the same ballot.
She faces Georgia Republican Rep. Doug Collins and the Rev. Rafael Warnock, a Democrat, among other candidates. If no one gets ahead of the 50% vote, the race will turn into a two-man runoff election in January.
