NEW YORK — On Monday afternoon, religious leaders-with a substantial number of them being Black–were in attendance at Donald Trump’s Trump Tower office with the 2016 GOP presidential hopeful for what was billed as a private meeting at the time.
The meeting was held on the premise that Trump would be able to “reach out to an influential set of Republican primary voters”, according to CNN.com. Of course, the meeting itself should not come as a surprise as it is par for the course and indicative of the typical dog and pony shows put on by political candidates. The real disappointing factor is the presence of highly influential Black clergymen in the meeting that afternoon who, at this point, would likely be averse to “handling issues at home”, such as the long dirty laundry list of issues plaguing Black Society.
One of the Black pastors in attendance, by the name of Mark Burns, participated in the closing of the meeting which involved the religious leaders gathering around Trump, and extending their collective hands toward him in prayer. Burns’s wife, Tomarra, uploaded this video to her Facebook page. Dr. David Jeremiah, the white religious leader who led the closing prayer, prayed that God “bring into his life a strong African-American who can stand with him (Trump) and represent that community, so that his voice can be heard in an even stronger way there.”
Given Donald Trump’s long history of racism against Melanoid people, don’t expect David Jeremiah’s prayers to be answered…even if hell freezes over.
