A Democrat official has turned his back on his party and switched to Republicans, blaming Joe Biden’s leadership for the move.
Victor Jimenez, the former spokesman for District of Columbia Democratic Mayor Muriel Bowser, came clean on Fox News, revealing that he switched to the GOP because Biden has been a disaster in the White House.
Jimenez told host Tucker Carlson that his political change of heart was a big deal because he was until recently the “lead public information officer at Bowser’s office for community affairs.”
He previously had a similar job doing Latino outreach.
Jimenez, who is an Afro-Dominican immigrant, earlier told Telemundo that “Biden turned me into a Republican” and that Biden has “destroyed the economy.”
Jimenez said on Fox News:
“The reason I switched parties is because of everything that’s going on in the country right now.
“We see immigration through the roof right now, and that is affecting a lot of Hispanic families in my home state of Virginia.
“And those are people who are already struggling with making ends meet.
“If you look at the southern border, we have thousands of people who are just waiting there.
“And I’m not saying we have good people try to come into the country with good intentions, but we also have bad people coming into the country with bad intentions.
“People with illegal guns and drugs and people who are running from their law enforcement in their own country.
“Being Hispanic and Black, I should be Democrat by default.
“But I am going against their narrative and I feel like right now everything is crumbling for the Democrats.”
“I bet Bowser is very confused by this,” Carlson said.
