The following article, Black Democrat Lawmaker Breaks From Party, Endorses Trump 2020 Over Joe Biden, was first published on Flag And Cross.
Though he has no plans to switch parties just yet, one Democrat lawmaker has decided to breakaway from endorsing Joe Biden in 2020 to support President Trump.
Heck, not even Barack Obama wanted to endorse Joe until Tuesday.
Might this man be the first of many? Probably not.
But every vote counts in November.
State Rep. Vernon Jones bucked his party Tuesday and endorsed President Donald Trump, making him the first state elected Democratic official in Georgia to back the Republican’s bid for a second term.
Long a polarizing figure in Georgia politics, Jones told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he views Trump as a transformative president whose policies have helped African American voters, military veterans and farmers.
Jones said, “It’s very simple to me. President Trump’s handling of the economy, his support for historically black colleges and his criminal justice initiatives drew me to endorse his campaign.”
He added, “There are a lot of African Americans who clearly see and appreciate he’s doing something that’s never been done before. When you look at the unemployment rates among black Americans before the pandemic, they were at historic lows. That’s just a fact.”
Here’s some Biden craziness, via Twitter…
