[Ed. – God forbid Democrats should recognize any of Trump’s accomplishments.]
Georgia Democrats are targeting one of their own after state Rep. Vernon Jones endorsed President Donald Trump for reelection on Tuesday.
Jones announced his pick for president in an interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, praising Trump’s handling of the economy and issues impacting black Americans. The black lawmaker represents one of the most Democratic districts in Georgia covering parts of DeKalb and Rockdale counties.
“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,” Jones said.
“This is not about switching parties. There are a lot of African-Americans who clearly see and appreciate he’s doing something that’s never been done before,” Jones continued. “When you look at the unemployment rates among black Americans before the pandemic, they were at historic lows. That’s just a fact.”
