Flint City Council member Maurice Davis just stunned the political world in his home state and publicly endorsed President Trump despite voting Democrat all his life.
“I’m not an Uncle Tom,” Davis told a crowd before Vice President Mike Pence spoke at Michigan’s Flint Bishop airport on Wednesday.
“Right now, the narrative has been spent—President Trump is full of hate,” Davis added.
“Let me tell you something, the Democrats are full of hate.”
“I’m tired, I’ve been a Democrat, I 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. 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.
“When Mr. Trump say ‘what the hell you got to lose’ he was talking to me,” the councilman said.
“He was not talking to my seat.
“Only thing Maurice D. Davis got to lose is a council seat at $700 every two weeks.” Davis is vice president of the city council.
“But this is what I got to gain– instead of being divided state of America it’s time to be the United States of America,” he said.
