John James Revealed: As James Breaks 170 Days Hiding from MI Print Media, New Report Shows He’s Spending Campaign Funds To Cozy Up to Trump

New Report Reveals John James is Spending Campaign Cash to Personally Benefit President Trump, Whom He Supports “2,000%”

It’s Been 171 Days Since James Answered Questions From MI Print Media, 278 Days Since He’s Done a MI TV Interview, 83 Days Since He Was at a Public Event

New reporting has revealed that John James spent thousands of dollars in campaign funds to stay at Trump’s DC property in an apparent effort to woo the president, whom he says he supports “2,000%.” James’ latest show of support for Trump comes as he has been in hiding from Michigan media and voters – and instead opting to rub shoulders with ultra-wealthy GOP donors – most recently at a Trump donor retreat yesterday in Florida.

It’s no surprise that James would spend top dollar to get close to Trump. James has previously failed to name a single issue that he disagrees with Trump on, and has remained silent on Trump’s harmful agenda. Most recently James has refused to comment on Trump’s budget blueprint that would slash funding for Medicare and Medicaid, which seniors and hard-working families in Michigan rely on, as well as the Republican led lawsuit that the Supreme Court will hear, which would end protections for 1.7 million Michiganders with pre-existing conditions coverage.

“John James’ exorbitant campaign spending with the purpose of personally benefiting the president is just the latest example of James’ ‘2,000%’ devotion to Trump – not Michiganders,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “James’ willingness to funnel thousands of campaign dollars to cozy up to the president raises questions about what kind of reckless decisions he’d make to stand by Trump, if elected.”

The Michigan Democratic Party launched 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.
