Coronavirus cases are spiking and over 140,000 Americans have died, but Trump is continuing to bury his head in the sand by failing to respond to the pandemic. New reports reveal that Trump is pushing to block billions in funding for COVID-19 testing and contact tracing, and for the Centers for Disease Control.
But even as some Republicans call the move “tone deaf” as the pandemic continues to rage on, failed politician John James won’t demand Trump do what’s right for Michigan. James is “2,000%” with Trump and praised his bungled pandemic response, saying he thinks “the president has done everything that he possibly thought was best.”
“John James refuses to stand up to Trump even as the president wants to block funding for coronavirus testing and contract tracing,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “Michiagan deserves a senator who will prioritize the health and safety of our families, over his relationship with the President.”
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.
