Democrat Georgia State Rep. Breaks From Party, Slams Biden and Endorses President Trump
I’ve been saying this for a long time, but Democrats stand no chance against President Trump this year in the upcoming presidential election. None.
The Democratic party is far too divided to all unite around Joe Biden who is now the presumed Democratic nominee.
Some Democrats aren’t middle of the aisle Democrats like Biden is, even though he has at times pretended to be more left-leaning than he really is to try and appeal to that group.
Others realize that he is far too old and senile to run the country and still others just realize that President Trump is doing a phenomenal job and he isn’t the devil that liberal media has made him out to be.
“This is not about switching parties. There are a lot of African Americans who clearly see and appreciate he’s doing something that’s never been done before. When you look at the unemployment rates among black Americans before the pandemic, they were at historic lows. That’s just a fact.”
According to The Blaze,
In a statement to WGCL-TV, Jones offered further praise of President Trump’s actions on criminal justice reform while criticizing former President Barack Obama and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on the issue.
The legislator told the outlet, “Thousands of first-time offenders have been able to move on with their lives and begin the path to restoration and positive, productive re-entry into society as a result of President Trump’s leadership with the First Step Act and criminal justice reform.”
“A generation of African American families have been devastated by draconian policies that Joe Biden supported and voted for when he served in the U.S. Senate,” Jones continued. “A change was needed and President Trump took action.”
Jones then brought up the case of Alice Marie Johnson, whose sentence was commuted by President Trump after being denied by President Obama several times. “What the media often failed to note,” the lawmaker wrote, “was that her pleas for mercy fell on deaf ears when she approached the previous administration.”
