Black Pastors To Trump: Our Meeting Is Not An Endorsement - The Daily Beast

“I am not officially endorsing ANY candidate and when I do you will NOT need to hear it from pulpitting courtjesters who suffer from intellectual and spiritual myopia,”

In fact, of the pastors scheduled to meet with Trump earlier in the day, so far only one, Pastor Darrell Scott, has said he will attend the press conference to endorse Trump.

In an interview with the Daily Beast on Friday, Scott said that he had organized Monday’s meeting between Trump and black clergy, but that his invitation was for them to meet with Trump, not to endorse him.
So...more of the usual BS from Trump and his people.

Maybe they will, maybe they won't but it says a lot that they are simply going to meet with him.

I don't think that Trump is "seeking black votes". He has largely stayed away from identity politics and focused on issues that affect all Americans. It would appear that the black Americans who support him feel that he is doing the best job of addressing the issues that they care about and cares about what they think.

The same could be said about black Americans who support Dr. Carson. That raises a question. Why are all the Democrat candidates old white people?

Kooks like the black pastors have decided to endure, not endorse, Donald Trump.

What does it say? That the Trump organization folks are liars? Sounds like that to me since many of the folks mentioned said they even NEVER AGREED to meet with him - just that they received an invitation. That's not the same thing AT ALL. So, not only did the Trump organization lie that these folks were going to endorse Trump, it lied that all those folks were even going to meet with him. Some MAY well meet with him, some may not, some MAY endorse him (though I doubt it), most (if not all) will not. This is a far cry from the press release issued by Trumps followers. Not a surprise though since much of what Trump says is either a huge exaggeration or an outright lie.

Blacks are beginning to understand that their jobs and opportunities for advancement have been taken away by the huge flood of cheap legal and illegal immigration labor that mainstream Republicans AND Democrats have supported for the last 30 years.

Trump is the only one to speak out for the American worker, including blacks.
