How much does one man’s soul cost? An endorsement like this is meant to be symbolic.
Sadly, it seems like both Trump and Jones share much in common including allegations of wrongdoing.
Georgia State Representative Vernon Jones would do well to remember that Donald Trump is transient. He must live with his Scarlet Letter for the rest of his life.
Vernon Jones is not just a failed Democrat. He has failed the moral test.
Democratic Georgia Rep. Vernon Jones endorses Trump for reelection
A polarizing Democratic state lawmaker from Georgia reportedly broke party ranks on Tuesday — endorsing President Trump’s reelection bid.
State Rep. Vernon Jones told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he’s backing Trump, in part, due to the president’s handling of the economy and criminal justice reforms.
“There are a lot of African Americans who clearly see and appreciate he’s doing something that’s never been done before,” Jones told the paper.
“When you look at the unemployment rates among black Americans before the pandemic, they were at historic lows. That’s just a fact,” he said.
Jones serves portions of DeKalb and Rockdale counties, which are just outside of Atlanta. He previously served as the chief executive officer of DeKalb County.
On Tuesday he faced the ire of his fellow state Democrats for endorsing Trump.
The chairwoman of the state’s Democratic party, State Sen. Nikema Williams, called Jones an “embarrassment” whose views don’t align with Georgia values, the report said.
