He donned a prayer shawl that was given to him by the Detroit pastor of the church he visited, Great Faith Ministries, and said he was there to learn.
And he spoke (here’s his full speech). Of course, he spoke. Trump has struggled to gain traction in the African American community, and I’m not sure this speech will move the needle much. He spoke of the African American’s historic place as the Magic Negroes, uh, I mean, the moral core of the nation. He praised the pastor(s) and got a big applause. He reminded the congregation that Abraham Lincoln was a Republican (he said that most people don’t realize that, but I kind of think most people do).
Will his visit turn into votes in November? Probably not.
