Weekly Update: John James Revealed By The Numbers

With roughly 50 days to the election, failed politician and failed businessman John James confirmed he’s “2,000%” for Trump at a rally for the president this week. And just like Trump, James broke his promises to Michigan. 

James accepted Trump’s “total and complete endorsement” because he’s “all for” his agenda which includes taking away Michiganders’ health care and gutting protections for pre-existing conditions. In fact reports reveal James “declined to comment” on the Trump and GOP-led lawsuit to repeal the ACA and James “has not detailed how he would” protect people with pre-existing conditions. 

James also deflected blame away from Trump’s mismanaged pandemic response even as it was confirmed he purposefully “played down coronavirus’s severity.” James has instead praised Trump’s handling of coronavirus which has left almost 7,000 Michiganders dead and 2.6 million unemployed, saying he did “everything that he possibly thought was best.” 

And James still won’t answer why he took nearly $2 million from taxpayers while failing to create any of the jobs he promised, and lied about his record as a Michigan job creator.

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.
