Sorry, BLM, Trump to announce endorsement of 100 African-American Evangelical leaders


Donald Trump answered charges that he’s racially insensitive and losing support among evangelicals, by announcing that he will gain the endorsement of “100 African-American Evangelical pastors and religious leaders” next week.

The Trump campaign has scheduled a 1 p.m. Monday press conference at the Trump Tower in New York City, before which the billionaire GOP frontrunner will meet privately with the pastors, according to a CNN report Friday.

Never backing down from controversy, Trump ejected a Black Lives Matter protester from a campaign rally last week, remarking on Fox News that “maybe he should have been roughed up,” because the man was being “obnoxious and loud.”  In response, on Wednesday, Black Lives Matter activists in Chicago attacked the Trump Tower during demonstrations over the shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald.

Contrary to what many pundits claim, Trump is still doing very well among evangelicals, especially in the south.

Supporters and critics both took to Twitter in reaction to Trump’s latest announcement.

Not everyone agrees that evangelicals should support the real estate mogul, who regularly ridicules the press. Trump is most recently under fire for allegedly mocking a handicapped New York Times reporter, which his campaign denied. Syndicated radio host and evangelical author Dr. Michael Brown raised his own questions.
