2018 Flashback: “Mr. President, if you’re watching, please come to Michigan. You have excellent luck on Election Day eve.”
Failed politician and failed businessman John James has run in lock step with Trump, appearing at nearly every in-state event with Trump and Pence this year – including accepting Trump’s “total and complete endorsement” last month. Now as Trump’s support in Michigan slides deeper underwater, James conveniently isn’t at Trump’s rally tonight after blowing off Pence’s Michigan rally earlier this week.
Despite James’ desperate last ditch effort to distance himself from Trump in the final weeks of the election, Michiganders already know the truth. James supports Trump’s toxic agenda “2,000%,” which includes gutting protections for pre-existing conditions, failing to adequately respond to the pandemic, and always putting special interests over Michigan’s working families.
And while James tries to hide his “unwavering almost worshipful support for Donald Trump,” the Michigan Democratic Party is continuing to hold him accountable for breaking his promises to Michigan:
“John James’ futile attempt to distance himself from Trump isn’t fooling anyone,” said Michigan Democratic Party spokesperson Elena Kuhn. “Michiganders already know he’s ‘2,000%’ with Trump and can’t be trusted to safeguard protections for pre-existing conditions or deliver for working 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. For the first year of his campaign, James was largely in hiding from Michigan press and voters to try to paper over his out-of-touch record, and has only come out of hiding after facing scrutiny from Michiganders.
