He then began crowd surfing through the rally!
See video of the incredible moment below:
Vernon Jones represents a growing segment of the Democrat base that now supports President Trump.
Trump has repeatedly pushed the fact that he has done more for black voters than any other president, except perhaps Lincoln.
Also, President Trump is fighting for the highest share of black voters for any Republican president... ever!
Business Insider confirms the hero's welcome that Vernon Jones received at Trump's rally:
Georgia state Rep. Vernon Jones literally rode a red wave on Friday, jubilantly crowd-surfing while maskless among legions of other maskless President Donald Trump supporters at a campaign rally.
Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, such close interactions are against government-issued social distancing guidelines, but Jones, a longtime Democratic lawmaker and top Black surrogate for Trump, appeared to relish the opportunity to show his support for the president at the Middle Georgia Regional Airport in Macon.
Among the crowd, who hoisted and moved him along, health concerns appeared to be the least of their worries as they awaited the arrival of a president who is split in voter polls with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in the traditionally Republican-leaning Southern state.
"To the haters - stay mad," he tweeted. "You'll be even more mad come November 3rd!"
Jones, who currently represents a suburban Atlanta district but chose not to run for reelection this year, was also a featured speaker at the 2020 Republican National Convention, where he spoke passionately about his position as a Black Trump supporter.
"When I made the public announcement of my support for President Trump, all hell broke loose," he said. "I was threatened, called an embarrassment, and asked to resign by my own party. Unfortunately, that's consistent with the Democratic party and how they view independent thinking black men and women. But, I'm here to tell you that black voices are becoming more woke and louder than ever."
Of course, many Democrats are angry that a black man supports President Trump.
For years, the Democrats have pushed the narrative that President Trump is "racist."
The backlash against Vernon Jones on Twitter was fierce.
Forget what the haters are saying.
The reality is that President Trump is fighting for ALL Americans.
The Associated Press confirms that the Trump campaign is now making inroads with the black and hispanic communities:
At a “Black Voices for Trump” event in Atlanta, Georgia, Trump announced what his campaign dubbed a “Platinum Plan” laying out his “promise to Black America” if he wins a second term, including a push for economic development and loan money and a pledge to designate Juneteenth as a federal holiday. Juneteenth, which commemorates the end of slavery in the United States, is so named because June 19, 1865, is when slaves were freed in Galveston, Texas.
The announcement came during a two-day campaign swing that ticked off a long list of boxes, both geographically and with key constituencies.
He unveiled what aides termed a “vision” for health care in North Carolina, where polls show him and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden effectively tied. He held a rally in Jacksonville, Florida, one of the most hotly contested battleground states. He courted Hispanic voters near Miami and Black voters in Atlanta. And he held another rally Friday night in Newport News, Virginia. Biden is well ahead of Trump in that state, but the location is close to key North Carolina counties that are difficult for the president to visit, according to the campaign, because not all airports can accommodate Air Force One and its landing requirements.
Trump has tried to contrast his jam-packed schedule with Biden, who has made just 12 visits outside of Delaware since his Aug. 11 selection of California Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate, worrying some Democrats with his low-key approach.
Trump complained in Atlanta that Biden “never goes out!” and said losing the Nov. 3 election would sting even worse if he lost to a man who never campaigns.
Trump also made rare references to the recent killings of Black men and women at the hands of police, which have sparked massive protests across the nation. Trump said the nation grieves for the “senseless” deaths of Breonna Taylor, George Floyd and Ahmaud Arbery, while continuing to lash out at demonstrators.
“Our hearts break for their families and for all families who have lost a loved one. ... But we can never allow mob rule,” he said, denouncing the Black Lives Matter movement. “This is an unusual name for an organization whose ideology and tactics are right now destroying many Black lives,” Trump charged.
We can't wait to see this hard work pay off on November 3!
The red wave is coming!
