Hot Mic: GOP Candidate Assures Group Of Black Leaders He Won’t Be Loyal To Trump

Published

Michigan GOP Senate candidate John James is not a fan of Donald Trump. On Saturday, Politico reported that James was caught on tape assuring a group of Black community leaders that he disagrees with Trump on a vast number of issues and won’t be blindly loyal to the president.

“Plenty, plenty of issues,” said James, who is himself African-American. “Everything from cutting Great Lakes funding to ‘shithole countries’ to speaking ill of the dead. I mean, where do you want to start?” It is unclear what James meant by “speaking ill of the dead,” but Trump has attacked a number of recently deceased politicians, from Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) to Rep. John Dingell (D-MI).

“I haven’t gotten any money from Donald Trump. I haven’t gotten any money from Betsy DeVos. I haven’t gotten any money — that’s political talking points,” he added. “Very little of that is true.”
