After Donald Trump met with a group of African American pastors on Nov. 30, one of them quickly declared support for the presidential candidate. Despite Donald’s controversial ways, the pastor claimed that he’s been falsely portrayed by the media! See what he said here!
Dr. Darrell Scott was one of the several pastors that spoke with Donald Trump, 69, at Trump Tower in New York City to engage in an important conversation amongst all of the racial issues America is facing. Following the meeting, Darrell, who is the Pastor of New Spirit Revival Center in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, made quite the statement about the controversial candidate: It’s not Donald who is doing anything wrong — it’s the “liberal media” that wrongly depicts him!
“I didn’t have concerns [with Trump] because I was already convinced, but there were concerns that the liberal media has put out portraying Mr. Trump in a light that I know he’s not the type of person he was depicted to be,” Darrell told CNN. So what we were able to do today was allow people to see his heart for themselves and to make up their own minds about him. And they find out that he’s not the person that the media has depicted him to be.” He added, “I support Donald Trump and everybody knows that.”
As most people know, Donald is not one to hold back his honest opinions. So while there’s no fabricating some of the things that actually come out of his mouth, clearly Darrell was impressed with what Donald had to say in their meeting. In fact, Darrell said the gathering was “very productive” and constructive!
“We made history today because we had had meaningful dialogue from Mr. Donald Trump and we voiced concerns that were sensitive to the African-American community,” he said.” And we asked questions were answered and we were satisfied with the answers and we’re a unified front right here. We had a wonderful time, a wonderful dialogue, wonderful fellowship, wonderful interaction. It was a great day.”
Darrell also mentioned that a lot of the 100+ pastors were meeting Donald for the first time, as they were interested in hearing the presidential candidate’s voice despite the controversy that often surrounds him. Considering there was no chance for the media to get in the way of their opinion of Donald during the meeting, Darrell even said that everybody came out of it with a positive outlook!
Donald’s bluntness has gotten him in hot water with plenty of people — fellow candidates and celebs alike — and the media has certainly taken advantage of it, as Darrell pointed out. But since the meeting with the pastors went so well, maybe Donald needs to have meetings with all of his haters to clear the air a little bit…or at least members of what Darrell considers the “liberal media”!
