Ahead of a visit to the Ford plant in Ypsilanti, President Trump – who failed politician John James supports “2000%” – threatened to withhold needed federal funding for Michigan.
As so many people across the state continue to be impacted by the Coronavirus crisis and are now also grappling with massive flooding, Michiganders deserve to know why John James supports the President’s agenda, even as he’s threatening to hold the state’s funding hostage.
This latest development in James’ undying loyalty comes after a new report confirms he is “all for” Trump’s agenda – just days after getting caught trying to distance himself from the President in a private meeting with African American community leaders in Detroit.
“Failed politician John James’ is ‘all for’ the Trump agenda even as the President makes direct threats to the state of Michigan,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “While John James tries to say in private meetings that he would be an independent voice, Michiganders know he will just be another rubber stamp for President Trump’s reckless decisions that hurt Michigan.”
The Michigan Democratic Party launched JohnJamesRevealed.com to hold the failed U.S. Senate candidate accountable for his positions – including those made over the course of the 2018 campaign that he then tried to delete after losing that campaign. Since announcing he’d run again, just over six months after his last failed bid, James has been hiding from Michigan voters and refusing to answer questions from Michigan media.
