Black ministers attend prayer meeting with Donald Trump

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is using all the means at his disposal to curry favor with the Black community. This time, Trump had a meeting of prominent ministers who proceeded to pray for him. During the prayer, ministers laid hands on Trump, spoke in tongues and asked God for a “strong African American that will stand with him.”

To say that Trump looked uncomfortable surrounded by evangelical and prosperity ministers is a mild understatement. The groups did almost everything but anoint Trump with oil and sing an old-time gospel hymn. Trump has previously made statements about his faith and said that he is Protestant. But Trump also stated he never has asked for God’s forgiveness. “I am not sure I have. I just go on and try to do a better job from there. I don’t think so … I think if I do something wrong, I think, I just try and make it right. I don’t bring God into that picture. I don’t,” he said.

Trump’s blatant appeal to evangelical Christians held at his skyscraper, Trump Tower, is almost insulting if it was not so funny.  Forty pastors participated in the meeting, including ministers who shared their feelings about Black voters and Trump. “I think Donald Trump changed the opinions of the African American pastors that were in the room. They saw a side of him outside of the media depiction, and that they would give strong consideration in regard to supporting his candidacy,” said Pastor Darrell Scott.

Reportedly in attendance were: Pastor Darrell Scott; Pastor E. Dewey Smith; Bishop Clarence McClendon; Pastor Mark Burns; Bishop Noel Jones; Crystal Smith, CEO Joy105; Prophet Robert Scott; Pastor James Davis; Pastor Demetrius Johnson; and Pastor Lionel Traylor.

    why do anyone want to endorse a man who thinks mexicans all fell of the turnip truck if he can put down immigrants who work like dogs to build america , he can certainly put down blacks , that most whites give no credit for our lost of lives during the slave trade. trump oviously see us as cold sores on american soil., if he thinks mexicans are poor and come to this country to take over , what about blacks? i he kidding . now him being the best scheming marketor is pulling in blacks on his campaign already . he goes on wendy william show and show his compasson for black yet ,when all these riot and protest and black men got killled he said nothing at all to defend the black race. .. he did what rich power does ignore the poor unless you need a vote then you go to the communite and talk about your respect ?

    Let’s hope they prayed for him to drop out of the race and end the foolishness

    That was not “tongues” that were being prayed on Trump…the Rabbi that was praying went from english to hebrew in his prayer.

    This is hilarious. They don’t even realize they’re being played.

    • sam66 on October 6, 2015 at 11:41 am

      They don’t care they are in it for the money. I don’t know any of these preachers and would not follow them to a swap meet.

      • big ray on November 30, 2015 at 4:46 pm

    My guess is they’re bought and paid for directly or indirectly

    How many of those Negro Pastors prayed for President Obama?

    • seabird on October 11, 2015 at 5:11 am

      Not many would, if any at all. Obama is Muslim, not Christian…..that’s why. Back in 2008******Rev. Jeremiah Wright: ” I don’t believe I would go as far to say that I converted him to Christianity but, I “made it comfortable” for Obama to accept Christianity without having to renounce (meaning: deny, reject, abandon, disown, spurn, shun, or forsake) his Muslim backround.”

      • AnthonyinNC on October 11, 2015 at 7:55 am

        You are ignorant.

        • seabird on October 11, 2015 at 9:48 pm

          These are facts here, Anthony. Sorry you don’t like them.

          • bnxblatino on November 27, 2015 at 3:10 pm

            It’s the stupidity he probably doesn’t like. Lol…. You sad sheeple, HONESTLY believe Obama is a Muslim… I hope u recover your ability to think clearly and recognize reality at some point.

          • seabird on November 30, 2015 at 2:57 am

            Your reality is off base. It comes from your liberal mind set that sucks up to your king. He is Muslim….or an atheist. He surely is not a Christian.

          • seabird on November 30, 2015 at 2:51 am

            You are in fact in denial and only fooling yourself which makes you lost at sea/see. It is not my judgement and this fact is not off skew. It is dead on. Sorry that you do not like it.

            seabird, you’re lost at sea/see. Judgment is very different from discernment and I can discern your judgment is off skew.

        Seabird you are a god damn lie I belong to that church . go tell your lies some place where people don’t know better . The President is a christian and Rev. Wright never said anything like that .

        • seabird on November 30, 2015 at 11:56 pm

          I am not a liar. Rev Wright was in a book for which he is well aware of what he quoted. Go ask him. He will know exactly what he said…..word for word. You use the Lord’s name in vane. How can any one find you credible with your trash mouth in the Lord’s name. So sad.

          • Fattonecat on March 14, 2016 at 2:52 pm

            You are a liar. Easily provable. You are blind to yourself thus completely ignorant. Sit down and shut up.

          • seabird on March 14, 2016 at 3:41 pm

            Sorry, Obama is Muslim. You are SO fooled and blind. How sad.

    How dare these ministers call themselves men of God and support somebody like Trump but them they are following the money and false promises. Trump sure don’t like Black people. If you are a member of these men’s Churches please don’t let them talk you into supporting Trump.

  10. Cheryl Anne Harper on October 17, 2015 at 6:19 am

    Pathetic. This is why so many people do not bother with organized religion. Money, money, money, money, money!

  12. Ladydi on November 30, 2015 at 6:07 pm

    Trump is promising MONEY to influence those Paster to get their people to follow him. Those Pasters only see GREEN. WHEN TRUMP DID THE STATS CONCERNING CRIME, HE INFLATED THE NUMBERS SHOWING BLACKS ARE COMMITING ALL THE CRIMES, WHICH IS A BIIIIG LIE.. Trump only wants the ULTIMATE PRIZE….President. He doesn’t give a DAMN about people except to control them.
