Maurice Davis, a black Flint, Michigan city council member and life long Democrat announced he is backing Trump for President ahead of Mike Pence’s visit.
Davis said “God uses whoever he wants to to bring His people out of whatever the problem has to be. Right now the narrative been spent. President Trump is full of hate? Let me tell you something, the Democrats is full of hate.”
He continued “I’m tired, I’ve been a Democrat, I’ve am a Democrat all my life, 64 years. Last four years, I voted for Hillary Clinton. This year, I decided to go with President Trump.” He added “I’m not a bootlicker. I’m not an Uncle Tom. I’m none of those things. I’m somebody that’s in a poor, impoverished community…People are losing everything, and when Mr. Trump said, ‘What the hell you got to lose?’, he was talking to me.”
