The Black Preachers Who Support Donald Trump

Donald Trump may be the only one who’s not taking his run for President seriously, but that hasn’t stopped his antics and attention-seeking behavior.

When he’s not spewing ignorance about the immigrants in this country, he’s going out of this way to gain support in the Black and Christian communities. You may have heard Trump recently held a prayer meeting at his own Trump Tower.

40 prominent pastors were in attendance and they laid hands on him, spoke in tongues and prayed God would align him with a “strong African American that will stand with him.”

Who knows the last time Trump, who identifies as Protestant, was last in a church or if he even has knowledge of the Black church.

Our curiosity has us wondering exactly who are these pastors who are lending their support to Trump of all candidates.

Here’s a run down on the Black religious leaders who obviously support Trump!
