If you’re a Democrat and you support President Trump, you could be in trouble.
Just ask Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones.
He recently came out as an ardent Trump supporter … and the response from his own party was quick and fierce.
After Jones voiced his respect for the President, various Democrat lawmakers and politicians condemned the move.
In fact, the Dekalb County Democratic Party recently revealed it wanted to punish Jones following his endorsement of Trump.
Said the party’s vice chairwoman, Adrienne White:
He was never a Democrat but is gaming the system to win. He’s a wolf in sheep’s skin.
Georgia State Democratic Party chairwoman added that Jones is “an embarrassment.”
Such scathing remarks didn’t go over well with Jones, though.
Earlier this week, he made it plain that he wasn’t happy with how he’s been treated:
Let me be clear about one thing: I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The Democratic Party left me.
But one would say, ‘Why would a black man support Donald Trump?’ I would reverse that. Why wouldn’t a black man support Donald Trump?
But unfortunately, it didn’t end there.
It seems Jones has become increasingly unhappy with how things are going, and now he has decided to resign.
UPDATE: Jones Just posted that after an outpouring of support, he will not give in to bullying by the Democrats and will not resign.
Here’s his Tweet announcing the decision:
Earlier today, I made the decision to not seek re-election to the Georgia House of Representatives.
I look forward, however, to continuing to serve my community in other ways and doing all I can to re-elect @realDonaldTrump. We will Make America Great Again.
Jones did clarify that he’s not leaving the Democratic Party.
Instead, he plans to remain and hopes to hold his colleagues “accountable.” I don’t know if he’ll ever manage to clean up his party, but I do applaud the effort.
Unfortunately, this is the sort of thing we’re seeing from the left:
If you don’t agree with everything they say, you won’t be treated well. And if you support the President … well, God forbid, that’s just unforgivable in their world.
It’s too bad that Jones had to be attacked simply for supporting our Commander-in-Chief.
But he’s proving a point here — and it’s a point we all have to hear!
SHARE if you believe many Democrats are nothing but intolerant bullies!
