Democratic State Representative Vernon Jones Endorses President Donald J. Trump For Re-Election

President Trump is the most action-oriented president of my lifetime. He is the leader our country needed. The results speak for themselves. With his hand on the wheel, the stock market broke record after record, wages and job growth exploded and unemployment dropped down to record lows. Given his track record, President Trump is best prepared to lead our economy back to record highs after we beat the COVID-19 pandemic.

HBCUs – Historically Black Colleges and Universities – are the lifeblood of the African American middle class and a predominant path to prosperity for millions of Americans. As a proud HBCU graduate, I support President Trump’s prioritization and provision of record funding for these institutions in doing more for HBCUs than any other occupants of the Oval Office in my lifetime.

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. A change was needed and President Trump took action. A great and well-known example of President Trump’s leadership on this issue lead is his commutation of the life sentence of a first-time nonviolent drug offender, Ms. Alice Marie Johnson. What the media often failed to note was that her pleas for mercy fell on deaf ears when she approached the previous administration.

I agree with President Trump’s position of protecting the American people from the negatives outcomes that occur as a result of illegal immigration. I agree with his efforts to put our country on a level footing with foreign trade. I appreciate his compassionate advocacy and proactive policies toward our military and veterans. While I can speak to these reasons and many others, President Trump’s handling of the economy, his unprecedented and unyielding support of HBCUs and his record on criminal justice reform are the main reasons I enthusiastically support his re-election.
