A Democratic Georgia state legislator who endorsed Donald Trump reversed his plans to resign from office on Thursday, explaining that he wouldn’t allow the Democratic Party to bully him into submission.
Vernon Jones became a target for ire from members of his party when he announced his support of President Trump and the ‘MAGA’ agenda. He soon announced that he would resign from office, reacting to a flood of condemnation from progressive Democrats incensed by his decision to embrace the President.
Jones had previously cited President Trump’s progress on lowering the black unemployment rate, his support of historically black colleges, and criminal justice reform as causes for him to cross party lines and endorse his reelection.
“It’s very simple to me. President Trump’s handling of the economy, his support for historically black colleges and his criminal justice initiatives drew me to endorse his campaign… There are a lot of African Americans who clearly see and appreciate he’s doing something that’s never been done before,” Jones said. “When you look at the unemployment rates among black Americans before the pandemic, they were at historic lows. That’s just a fact.”
But Jones appears to have changed his mind about resignation, announcing that he’d fulfill his term in office and campaign for the President’s re-election in Georgia.
Yesterday, I announced my intentions to resign from my office. But shortly thereafter, the outpour of support I received was too great for me to ignore.
I will not allow the Democrats to bully me into submission. I will not let them win.

“I am going to remain on the battlefield… I am going to complete my term. I am going to continue to put my country before my party. And I will do everything I can to help Donald J. Trump get reelected.”
It’s possible that Jones will change his party orientation to Republican, although the Lithonia-area district he represents is heavily Democratic.
Tucker Takes Jared Kushner, White House Liberals to Task for Lackluster Trump Administration Response to Riots
“No one has more contempt for Donald Trump’s voters than Jared Kushner does.”
Tucker Carlson called out White House liberal Jared Kushner for pushing the Trump administration’s overall lackluster response to the nationwide race riots sweeping America during a segment on Monday, pointing to Kushner as a stealth liberal undermining the ‘MAGA’ agenda that President Trump was elected upon in 2016.

“But the President’s famously sharp instincts- that won him the presidency almost four years ago- have been since subverted at every level by Jared Kushner. This is true on immigration, on foreign policy, and especially on law enforcement… [President Trump] often derides Kushner as a liberal, and he’s right- he is.”
White House sources describe Kushner as instrumental in convincing the President to water down his response to the nationwide race riots, arguing that enforcing the law would prove damaging to the prospects of Trump increasing his support with minority voters in the 2020 election. Tucker pointed out the inherent bigotry of Kushner’s assumption, arguing that Americans of all demographics support putting an immediate end to the widespread criminality and attacks on private property that have been witnessed throughout the nation since the death of George Floyd.
Carlson earlier pointed to Kushner for what consistently comes across as downright dismissive contempt for the working-class voters who have proved Donald Trump’s most crucial political constituency, arguing that the President’s son in law is more interested in advancing a metropolitan cultural elite- friendly from within the White House. Kushner has aggressively pushed to save mass immigration and cheap labor visa programs at the behest of Silicon Valley elites, most recently undermining President Trump’s plan to set forth an immigration moratorium in the wake of the coronavirus recession.
Recent reports also indicate that Kushner, a lifelong Independent and Democrat before switching to the Republican Party during Trump’s presidency, has been seeking to alter the Republican Party platform in order to appeal to liberal and affluent suburban voters.
