Maurice Davis is the Vice President of the Flint, MI City Council. He’s also a resident of the impoverished, blue-collar city, devastated by a water crisis while Barack Obama was president. On Wednesday, he bravely addressed a large crowd of Trump supporters attending Vice President Pence’s rally in his hometown.
Davis told the crowd that this is a “serious time in the world,” telling the crowd that he has had the “Chinese virus” twice and was in intensive care both times. “God uses whoever he wants to, to bring his people out of whatever the problem has to be.” He warned that “the narrative has been spent,” as he mocked their lies, “President is full of hate,” he said, adding, “Let me tell you something, the Democrats is full of hate!”
“I’m tired,” he said, adding, “I’m a Democrat. I’ve been a Democrat all my life—64 years. The last four years, I voted for Hillary Clinton. This year, I decided to go with President Trump,” he told the crowd, as they cheered. David continued, “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.”
Davis told the crowd that President Trump’s “what have you got to lose” by trusting me to bring the black community out of poverty, comment resonated with him. He explained that the only thing he has to lose is his “$700 every two weeks” paycheck if he doesn’t get re-elected as a Flint City Council member. “Instead of being a divided States of America, it’s time to make be the United States of America.”
The Flint City Council VP explained that President Trump and Vice President Trump reached out to him, “We’re tired of suffering, and nobody gives a damn about poor folks! President Trump reached out with nothing but love for y’all, all over this nation.”

On Oct. 21, the Vice President of Flint, Michigan’s City City Council Maurice Davis, appeared in an interview with Newsmax, where he explained to the host, Greg Kelly, why he’s voting for President Trump.
During his interview, Kelly asked Mr. Davis if he remembers when President Trump spoke directly to the Black community, when he asked them, “What the hell do you have to lose?” Davis told Kelly, he remembered, and that he thought President Trump was speaking directly to his constituency. “We are an impoverished community,” he explained, adding, “Nobody cares about the Blacks in Flint, but Mr. Trump gave us a lot of hope,” Davis told explained how he’s actually seen the results of the Trump administration trying to help them, while other politicians, like Barack Obama, have only offered lip service to the poor residents of Flint. He explained, “Since President Trump was elected, Sec. of State Ben Carson brought over $30 million to the city of Flint,” adding, “Obama been here— he said our water is fine, you know—ain’t nothing wrong with drinking lead! And Mr. Trump tried to do something about that!”
The VP of the Flint City Council doubled said about Trump, “He’s outstanding. He don’t care what nobody say, he stays focused on what needs to be done—I admire that!” Davis pushed back on the false narrative that Trump is a racist, telling the Newsmax host, “I wish other black folks would get on board because the man ain’t racist no kind of way—I never met him personally, but I go by your actions—and I don’t play!”
“Flint, MI needs a Trump! This side of the United States—Michigan, we are hurting for somebody like Trump that does what they say they gonna do!” Davis exclaimed.
David told Kelly that the city of Flint still has a problem with lead in their water, but that he believes President Trump and his administration will continue their efforts to help them fix their broken city. “Mr. Trump, he really tried to help poor folks. I don’t know where this new narrative come from with the racism and all this other mess.” He continued, “I’m tired of people speaking for poor folks that don’t have poor folks at heart,” adding, “Mr. Trump would be the best thing for poor folks—and I’m mad about it, because if he don’t do it, what do we have to lose?”
Davis said a lot of “black folks” feel just like him, adding, “but they’re scared because of the ridicule they’ll get” for openly supporting Trump, warning, “You’re gonna find out on election day” that Trump is going to turn out the Black vote.
