OPINION: James is fashioning himself as a moderate who believes in bipartisanship. The problem is when it comes to the party of Trump, you can’t play it both sides.

John James is a Black man who has a shot at becoming the next U.S. Senator from the great state of Michigan. But why does he support Trump, but acts like he doesn’t know the man?

James is running against Democratic freshman Senator Gary Peters, in a second run for the office. In 2018, James ran for the state’s other Senate seat, losing to incumbent Democrat Debbie Stabenow.

A businessman and self-proclaimed “job provider,” he has an impressive pedigree on paper — in terms of what white folks who would vote for him may look for in such a person. He is a West Point graduate with two Master’s degrees — one from Penn State and another from the University of Michigan — and he served in the Iraq War.
