Trump Insists ‘Most’ Black Pastors Endorsing Him

Instead of landing 100 endorsements from prominent black pastors, Donald Trump has had to downgrade his expectations.

Now, Trump says that “most” black pastors are endorsing him.

“I thought it was an amazing meeting. I met some fantastic people,” Trump said following the private meeting at Trump Tower.

Darrell Scott, a pastor at the New Spirit Revival Center in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, stood beside Trump on Monday and came out in support of him.

“I thought it was an amazing meeting. I met some fantastic people,” Trump said following the private meeting at Trump Tower.

“Nobody at this meeting came out with negative reaction in any kind of way,” Scott said, adding that “Everybody in the room likes Donald Trump.”

The Hill reports:

Omarosa Manigault-Stallworth, a former contestant on Trump’s reality show “The Apprentice” who is now a minister, also stood next to Trump at the press conference.

At the end of the press conference, Trump emphasized that he’s made no financial commitments to any of the churches.

Trump said issues such as African-American unemployment were addressed at the meeting, which lasted about two and a half hours.

Trump has been battling charges that his campaign is divisive. He’s been criticized for rhetoric seen by critics as anti-Muslim and questions about an alternation between a Black Lives Matter protester and white attendees at a recent rally.

When asked by a reporter if he wanted to comment about BLM, Trump dismissed: “Black lives are very important, white lives are very important, and to me all lives are very important.”
