When asked about the racist language used by a guest on MSNBC:
“Well, first of all, I want to pray for MSNBC and the gentleman because they seem to need Jesus. I think [Raphael Warnock] and the left-wing crazies want everyone to think that this country is a terrible place full of racist people. I want everyone to know that this is a good place, that we have our problems, but we can solve them together…Let’s remove people like that from Washington because we are good people and a good country.”
On the state of the Senate race:
“You know, right now we’re in that little margin of error. I think that’s the reason they’re so mad. They’ve spent almost $25 million against me and right now the race is almost dead even, and I think it makes them nervous. At the same time, they don’t realize that I’m out speaking to the people of Georgia, but [Raphael Warnock] is in Washington with his friends. They’re making decisions that are hurting the Georgia voters. So Raphael Warnock seems to be standing with Joe Biden, while I stand with the people of Georgia, and I think that is gonna make a big difference come November.”
On fall debates:
“I’ve called him on two debates. He’s turned me down on both of them because I said what I want is a fair and equitable debate where it’s for the people, not about some press, not about some party, but the people get a chance to see the differences between [Raphael Warnock] and myself. [Warnock] believes in raising taxes during a recession. [Warnock] believes in being soft on crime. He’s voted with Joe Biden for officials that are soft on crime. [Warnock] voted to put men in women’s sports, where I do not think men should be in women’s ports. So there’s a big difference and contrast. I think he’s afraid to stand in front of the Georgia voters and stand up for the record that he’s voted on.”
On the “Inflation Reduction Act”:
“It is a terrible bill for America, it is a terrible bill for Georgians. As I was going around the state and my opponent last week said he looked forward to supporting this bill. Well, first of all, this bill is going to hurt a lot of American manufacturers and they’re going to give them a disadvantage against China. This bill is going to raise taxes on voters, and I said, ‘Why do you want to do that right now? We’re going through a recession and you’re going to raise taxes on everyone?’. So I think it is time we get people like that out of Washington…You got to believe in America and believe in the voters. These voters here in Georgia, they’re hurting. Gas prices are up, grocery prices are up, crime on the street and that’s what my opponent has supported, things like that, well I’m here to change it.”
