Yesterday, a CNN television program held a brief interview with a panel of several people–consisting of pundits who discussed GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s racial remarks towards a Melanoid man during his visit to California this past week.
During the interview, Pastor Darrell Scott, who presides over New Spirit Revival Center in Cleveland, vehemently spoke out against any implications of Trump being a white supremacist. “It’s not racial, it’s cultural”, Pastor Scott says in regards to Trump referring to one of his Black male supporters in attendance for his Redding, CA rally as “my African-American over here”.
“It was a term of endearment”, Scott adds.
Last night’s CNN appearance hasn’t been the first time that Pastor Scott has openly voiced his support for Donald Trump. Back in September, Scott and a number of other Black clergy members met with Trump in his New York office to ‘pray for him’, showing their support for him in the process.
Here is the video of the CNN interview.
