In a Tuesday op-ed at the Daily Caller, Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones, a Democrat who has received hundreds of threats from his own party due to his public support for President Trump, slammed presidential candidate Joe Biden as a “full-blooded bigot.”
“Since that day in May when I announced I would support Donald Trump for president, my motives have been questioned, my integrity assailed, even my intelligence challenged. That’s okay,” Jones wrote. “I’m a lifelong Democrat, but I am also a black man, the son of a World War II veteran and a proud American.”
Jones harshly criticized Democrat calls to defund the police and Democrat policies that have kept blacks mired in poverty. He praised Trump for lifting “350,000 black Americans” out of poverty during just the first two years of the Trump administration. Meanwhile, he added, Biden has a history of racist comments.
“Right now,” Jones concluded, “President Trump is being defined as a racist by the media, when in reality Joe Biden is the full-blooded bigot.”
