John James Revealed: As Pence Lands in Michigan, Reminder That John James Is “All For” Trump Agenda That Has Left MI Behind

James has stood with Trump-Pence Administration during their mismanaged Coronavirus response and failure to hold the Chinese government accountable

Vice President Mike Pence is back in Michigan today after recklessly downplaying the ongoing threat of coronavirus, and years of failing Michigan families. Yet John James has stood right by Pence and the Trump administration “2,000%” even as it’s hurt Michigan. 

Michigan’s economy has entered a recession, over 2 million people in-state have filed for unemployment, and almost 6,000 Michiganders have died, including over 800 in Macomb County — all due to the pandemic which has been worsened by Trump, Pence, and this administration’s failure to effectively respond to the crisis. But James has made clear he’s “all for” the Trump agenda that has left Michigan out to dry – even as Trump has sold out Michigan manufacturing and failed to be tough on the Chinese government.

“The Trump administration has failed Michigan with an inadequate pandemic response and has failed to hold the Chinese government accountable. Yet John James has stood by Pence and Washington Republicans even as they leave our state behind,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “James’ unwavering loyalty to the administration makes clear he’s running to serve Trump and Pence, not Michigan.”

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.
