Black Pastor Voices Support For Trump At Campaign Rally (Video)

Pastor Steve Parson

At a rally in Virginia on Dec. 2, a black minister from the state voiced his support for Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump (video below).

“People ask me, well why are you endorsing Donald Trump?” Minister Steve Parson said. “My opinion: he’s the best, and the only one that can beat Hillary Clinton. I mean, listen, we gotta win. And one thing about Donald Trump is he’s a winner, Amen … He knows how to create wealth, can I get an Amen? And as a black minister … we’re right in the inner city, and I’ll tell you we need jobs, we need employment, we need businesses. And I tell you who better can help us help ourselves than Donald Trump?”

Parson was joined on stage by other black pastors who support Trump.

“I personally believe that this is a movement … And I believe that we’re in a situation now where this country called America is gonna come back and be made great again,” Parson said.

He added that Trump will make the U.S. military strong again because he “just doesn’t take anybody’s mess.”

Parson’s appearance at the rally came just two days after Trump spoke with him during a meeting with a “coalition of 100 African American Evangelical pastors and religious leaders,” according to a statement released by Trump’s campaign that was obtained by WHNT.

Following the meeting, Trump said he had received endorsements from some of the black pastors, while others said they had to “pray about it.”

“I have no idea what the meeting is; I have a great relationship with the black pastors, I know many of them, and we’ll see what happens,” Trump said. “I think probably it will be an endorsement by some.”

Bishop Corletta Vaughn, Senior Pastor of The Holy Ghost Cathedral and star of the Oxygen reality series “Preachers of Detroit,” declined to attend the meeting with Trump, and will not give him her endorsement.

“Trump is an insult and embarrassment. But he represents the country we have become,” Vaughn wrote on Facebook, WHNT reports. “ZERO experience … Flaunting a ticket of unbridled bigotry, sexism, racism and everything that is wrong with America.”
