(JustPatriots.com)- Maurice Davis, a Democratic City Council member for Flint, Michigan, has endorsed President Donald Trump. On Thursday, the life-long Democrat announced his support for the president and dismissed racist attacks from left-wing activist by saying, “I am not an Uncle Tom.”
The endorsement is a huge blow for the Democratic campaign in Michigan and shows that the narrative that President Donald Trump is a racist is a false one.
“Right now, the narrative has been spent…President Trump is ‘full of hate.’ Let me tell you something, the Democrats are full of hate,” Davis said on stage.

“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,” he added.
“I’m not a boot licker. I’m not an Uncle Tom. I’m none of those things, I’m somebody that’s in a poor, impoverished community,” he added.
Davis reminded attendees of the rally that President Trump asked him what he had to lose in 2016, and that the only thing he has to lose is a council seat that pays $700 every two weeks.
Vice President Mike Pence thanked Davis for his endorsement.
“Vice President of the City Council in Flint…where are you, Maurice?” he said. “Let’s hear it for Maurice. I’m partial to vice presidents. Thank you Maurice.”
America-first commentator Ryan Girdusky noticed that defections like this could be the reason why former President Barack Obama is out on the campaign trail in Michigan, trying to keep hold of the black vote.

President Barack Obama, who refused to endorse Biden during the primaries, has recently begun addressing small crowds in an attempt to help Joe Biden hold the black vote. It looks increasingly less likely, however, that it is going to work.
