Donald Trump attended a black church service in Detroit Michigan on Saturday, September 3rd, 2016 at Great Faith Ministries alongside Ben Carson, Omarosa, Katrina Pierson, and pastor Darrell Scott. The presiding Bishop of the church is Wayne T. Jackson, alongside his wife, Beverly Yvonne Jackson. The Jackson’s son is a well known actor Brandon T. Jackson who has appeared in a variety of TV shows and movies, most notably “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.” The church was very welcoming and hospitable to Donald Trump during his visit. The visit itself, however, was received differently from those on the outside looking in. A mixed bag is the best way to describe it.
First of all, there were many Detroit residents protesting Trump’s arrival before he came. Allegations of racism against blacks and other minorities were bandied about. There were also allegations that he had no prior outreach to the black community, even though this campaign cycle is his very first time ever being a politician. Some Detroit residents took to the streets outside of Great Faith Ministries during Saturday’s church service to protest Trump. The protest was pretty small and uneventful.
At some point during the service, Trump, alongside Carson, Omarosa, Pierson, and Scott, were front row and center enjoying the praise and worship style of Christian music being played. Trump seemed to be soaking up all of the energy of the church and maximizing the moment, as he swayed side to side while the music was playing. Some, of course, criticized him for being fake during that situation. Though many of those same people didn’t consider it fake when Roland Martin did the “wobble” with Hillary Clinton after a town hall meeting that he hosted for Hillary. It seems as though much of the criticism comes from people who don’t like Trump and are trying to find a reason to be upset with him in general.
The actual speech Trump gave during, or sometime close to, the Church service was great. It was mostly a written statement that he was reading, presumably with the help of the black advisors such as Carson and Omarosa that traveled with him, to better express himself in front of a black audience. He did go off-script at times, giving compliments to the Bishop, his wife, and the church in general. Much of the content in the speech was not too far off of Trump’s core message, which is jobs and security of our Nation.
Overall, a great performance and a great example for other Republicans in the future. Conservative outreach to the black community is often seen as a waste of time because the overwhelming majority of blacks always vote Democrat. The younger generation, however, may be more receptive to new ideas than their elders. Trump could have “sown the seed” of a new generation of black Republicans, by sparking the expectation of all political parities to outreach, then show and prove if elected.
