Legislator Democrats Harassed for Endorsing Trump Won’t Resign: “Will Put My Country Before My Party”

April 26, 2020

Vernon Jones, a Democratic state representative in Georgia who attracted immense ire from his party after endorsing President Donald Trump, said he will remain in office.

Jones had announced on Wednesday that he would be resigning from his post within the Georgia House of Representatives, citing attacks and harassment from the Democratic Party for supporting Trump’s re-election. However, the renegade Democrat later said that, after an avalanche of public support, he has changed his mind and will not resign.

“Little did I know that I would receive such [a] barrage of attacks and name-calling by the far left in the Democratic Party,” Jones said in a Twitter video posted on Thursday about his decision to support Trump.

These attacks at first prompted him to vacate office, but he said something soon changed.

“When I started receiving the overwhelming amount of support and outcry from the people that I represent in House District 91 in DeKalb and Rockdale counties, my fellow Georgians, and fellow Americans from across this country in every walk of life, every age, every color, every party — that was emotional, and that was motivational,” Jones continued.

He added: “And you know what, America? I thought about it, and I talked to my family, and I talked to my supporters. Because what you did for me, I am going to remain on the battlefield, I am going to complete my term, I’m going to continue to put my country before my party.”

The state representative added that he will do “everything I can” to get Trump re-elected in November.

Jones launched onto the national scene when he officially endorsed Trump on April 14, pointing to the president’s handling of the economy, support for historically black colleges and his criminal justice reform initiatives. These issues, he said, drew him to support Trump’s campaign.

However, his decision was met with resounding condemnation from his colleagues.

Georgia Democratic Party Chairwoman Nikema Williams called Jones an “embarrassment” to the party, and a group launched by failed gubernatorial candidate and romance novelist Stacey Abrams said it would work to unseat him from office. The establishment has since thrown its support behind Rhonda Taylor, Jones’s Democratic primary rival.

Jones represents the 91st House District in the Georgia House of Representatives — a majority-minority district in the suburbs south of Atlanta that is overwhelmingly Democratic. Before entering the Georgia General Assembly, Jones served as the CEO of DeKalb County, and served in the state House from 1993 to 2001.

The Good News


Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don’t have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.




  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
