As Trump Comes to Michigan, MDP Launches New Digital Ad Holding John James Accountable for Being “All For” Trump’s Agenda

Today, as President Trump visits Michigan for a political photo op, the Michigan Democratic Party is launching a new digital ad holding failed politician John James accountable for his “2,000%” support for Trump’s toxic agenda. The MDP digital ad, titled “All For Trump,” highlights how John James’ is trying to have it both ways: distancing himself from Trump behind closed doors with African American leaders and refusing to tell the AP if he’s still with Trump “2000%” while fundraising with the President’s son, who confirms James is “all for” Trump’s agenda. The ad will target voters statewide.

James has spent the majority of his campaign hiding from Michigan press and voters, after beginning his run by getting caught deleting hundreds of social media posts expressing support for policies that would hurt Michigan families. But as the ad shows, despite James’ attempts to paper over his extreme positions, the truth is James is “all for” the Trump agenda.

“John James has spent his campaign hiding from Michiganders and trying to have it both ways behind closed doors. But despite trying to erase his ‘2,000’ percent support for Trump, the fact is James would implement the president’s reckless agenda instead of doing what’s right for Michigan,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn.

John James took nearly $2 million in tax breaks on the condition that he would create 108 jobs — instead, he cut 32 Michigan jobs. Why did John James break his promise and lie to Michiganders?
