James offering to take questions for $1,000 after hiding from Michiganders for hundreds of days
Fundraiser comes as James is caught misleading voters on his record of supporting Trump
Last week failed politician John James was caught trying to create distance with President Trump in a private meeting with African American leaders in metro Detroit. Now he’s working overtime to prove he still stands with Trump ‘2,000%’ by holding a fundraiser this afternoon with Donald Trump Jr.
And as James hides from Michigan press and voters – only recently conducting his first print interview in months to clean up his mess and confirm he supports Trump – his campaign is advertising the “opportunity to ask a question” at the virtual fundraiser with Trump Jr. that comes with the steep price tag of $1,000.
Since James will only take questions from high dollar donors, the Michigan Democratic Party gave James the opportunity to answer questions for all Michiganders at a shadow press conference viewable here.
“John James can’t stop trying to have it both ways,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “After taking heat for talking out both sides of his mouth, James’ move to rake in campaign cash with Trump Jr. is a clear indication of where his loyalty really stands – 2,000% with Donald Trump not with Michigan families.”
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.
