Black Christians embrace Donald Trump in Cleveland church town hall but media ignored it

Donald Trump and Mike Pence campaigned on Wednesday morning with Don King and Ben Carson at Cleveland Heights church. Trump and his vice presidential candidate took part in a discussion with pastors at the sanctuary of New Spirit Revival Center in Cleveland Heights around 9 a.m. King spoke as well. The event was inspiring and showed the Blacks embracing Trumps ideas and plans to alleviate the poverty and crime that exists in U.S. cities that have been under Democratic rule for decades.

The church’s pastor, Dr. Darrell Scott, said the event was moved to Cleveland from Columbus, Ohio,  to provide adequate space for the expected huge turnout. Unfortunately most of the national news media ignored the gathering preferring to help maintain the Clinton campaign narrative about her support from minorities, said former police chief Matthew Sorrorento. According to Sorrento, who also served as an officer in the U.S. Marine Corps, the number of retired military generals and admirals who have endorsed Trump has risen to almost 200.

The Trump-Pence team has been endorsed by most of the nation’s police organizations and unions including the over 300,000-member Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) and — in a first ever endorsement by their union — the U.S. Border Patrol.

It was also the first endorsement Pastor Scott had ever made, putting him in green rooms and in arenas full of screaming Republican voters. He didn’t talk about it from the pulpit – “my politics have nothing to do with the church,” he said in an interview — but the largely black congregation of New Spirit Revival Church was aware.
