Donald Trump ‘Saw Love In the Room’ During His Meeting With Black Ministers, Expects Several Endorsements

After a great deal of back and forth, Donald Trump met with a group of Black ministers Monday at Trump Towers and the presidential candidate said he “felt love in the room.”

The meeting, which Trump’s campaign initially billed as a press conference in which several Black clergy members would endorse his bid for the White House, took place after several pastors pulled out and said they would not support the candidate because of his racially-charged rhetoric.

Despite the public outcry by many in the Black community, Trump said the meeting was a success.

“This meeting was amazing,” he said in an unscheduled press event. “Amazing people. We must have had more than 100 people in the room. We all thought it was such a good meeting … and we have many, many endorsements that came out of the meeting.”

Pastor Darrell Scott, a longtime supporter of Trump, blamed the controversy leading up to the meeting on the “liberal media.” Scott also admonished Black folks for questioning the motives behind the meeting.

“The African-American community needs to be ashamed of themselves of the way they’ve reacted to our meeting with Mr. Trump,” Scott said before the meeting. “They accused Mr. Trump of being an insulting individual but they’ve levied insults at us that I wouldn’t levy against people I hate … They don’t know the Donald Trump that we know.”

I suppose Pastor Scott hasn’t been watching his friend on TV throughout the campaign?

In addition to saying a Black Lives Matter protester “deserved to get roughed up” at his rally, Trump has also said offensive things about Latin@s, Muslims, and just about anyone who does not agree with him.

    I wonder what grease Trump used in the good ole pastor’s palms? The pastor should be ashamed of HIMSELF for aligning with such a tool as Donald Trump. From the beginning of time, there have always been Black lapdogs for the White man. Pastor, I’m sorry, but we don’t have such warm and fuzzy feelings as you do!

      Amen Sister! When will we learn not to sell our souls? It’s not like Trump is a Godly man. And even if he was, he certainly hasn’t exhibited any Godly traits–his racist, sexist views and outright lies demonstrate that. Shame on these bootlicker, sell out pastors!!

    That’s why I don’t fool around with those tricksters. He will learn the hard way…the future teeth marks on his ass will prove my point.

    The pastor and his supporters are fools for allowing Trump to use them as the ‘Black friends’ that he can refer to the next time he says something racist or against the BLM movement. I don’t understand how these people and others can be so blind.

    I am quite sure Trump promised the Good Reverend a nice chunk of change in his collection basket. Another submissive stepppin fetchit Negro has been born.

    First, Donald Trump’s views are antithetical to racial justice. He is a person who has spewed hatred and he doesn’t support an end to police terrorism and an increase of the minimum wage. Also, how dare Darrell Scott castigate the African American community collectively when black people have every right to express dissent. Scott has thrown his own people under the bus for the sake of sucking up to Donald Trump. Trump is a person who refuses to apologize for anything. Trump is a liar by saying that he saw Muslims celebrating 9/11. The truth is that some slick pastors want a selfish individualism instead of promoting collective solidarity and altruism. There is nothing courageous about some black people being puppets of white bigoted extremists. What is groundbreaking is about many black people courageously standing up against a neoliberal, corporate-dominated, and corrupt society and advocating for justice for black people in the world. What is courageous is to condemn economic exploitation and promote a society where universal health care is real and crooked cops are made accountable. We should end classism too. Many of those pastors do look scared since they know what they did was wrong and they are filled with guilt and shame.

    Black Lives Always Matter.

    And I bet these pastors will have no fewer members showing up for church on Sunday. I wonder if we even have the names of these folks?

    There needs to be a list of the pastors that actually showed up, so their members can ask them why and hold them accountable for supporting this idiot. They need to remind them that they are representing their respective church when they attend a meeting such as this.

    We continue to allow these pulpit pimps to “represent” our interest when its increasingly obvious many only seek to represent their own interest. Trump is co-opting the Michael Bloomberg playbook. Bloomberg was able to get compliance during his tenure as NYC mayor by buying alliances from many of the so called “Black Churches” in the who through the years benefitted from contributions from his charitable foundation. Bloomberg was of course not this crass and did his dirt in the dark but pulpit pimps have no shame and will take their 30 pieces of silver wherever and whenever they can get it.

    These men will have to answer to God. Racism does NOT have a place at the Lord’s table. Pastors should know better than to enable such madness.
