Democratic Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones bashed his party and declared his ardent support for President Trump in a speech Monday night at the 2020 Republican National Convention.
Jones, who was elected to the Georgia House of Representatives in 2016, made waves in April with his endorsement of Trump.
During his RNC address, he railed against his party, saying it had become “infected with a pandemic” of intolerance, bigotry, socialism and anti-cop sentiment.
Dems have “a dangerous tolerance for people who attack others, destroy property, and terrorize our communities,” he said.
Jones, who is black, added: “The Democratic Party does not want Black people to leave the mental Plantation they’ve had us on for decades.”
And when Trump sought the African-American vote, Jones said, “Democratic Party leaders went crazy!”
“Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer literally started wearing Kente cloth scarves around the Capitol!,” he quipped.
Jones said he backs Trump because of his support for criminal justice reform and historically black colleges and universities.
His rebuke of Democratic leaders echoed that of Kim Klacik, the Baltimore congressional candidate, who caught the attention of the GOP last week with a viral video ripping “Democrat-run cities” and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
