DETROIT, Michigan, US (sentinel.ht) – Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump spoke before a predominately Black church in Detroit, Michigan, Saturday, where he told them he “fully understands that the African American community has suffered discrimination”.
Trump was accompanied by Dr. Ben Carson, the former Republican presidential hopeful who grew up in the city.
Mr Trump arrived at the church to the sound of protests against him taking place outside. Inside, he gave an interview to the church’s pastor, Bishop Wayne T Jackson, which will be aired on the Impact TV network, the largest AFrican-American faith television network in the nation.
Trump sat in the pews and attended the church service before addressing the congregation. Among other things, he said “nothing is more sad than when we sideline young black men with tremendous potential,” he said.
