Pastor Calls Trump ‘Probably’ the ‘Most Pro-Black President’ with a ‘Heart for All Americans’

Pastors and faith leaders from the Nation’s “inner cities” gathered with President Donald Trump at the White House, and Pastor Darrell Scott of Cleveland praised the president.

He called Trump “the most pro-black president that we’ve had in our lifetime,” according to the transcript.

I’ve had the honor and privilege to work with then-candidate, now President Trump, and to observe him behind the scenes and have a number of personal conversations with him. And people ask me why do I defend him so vociferously? And I say it’s easy for me to do because I know him, and he’s shown me his heart, and I know he has a heart for all Americans.

And I will say this – this administration has taken a lot of people by surprise, and it’s going to surprise you guys even more because this is probably the most proactive administration regarding urban America and the faith-based community in my lifetime. And I’ll be 60 years old in December.

But when I think back on – well, I use good hair dye, and I’ve got a great makeup artist. But, to be honest, this is probably going to be the – and I’m going to say this at this table – the most pro-black president that we’ve had in our lifetime because – and I try to, you know, analyze the people that I encounter – this president actually wants to prove something to our community, our faith-based community and our ethnic community.

The last president didn’t feel like he had to. He felt like he didn’t have to prove it. He got a pass. This president is – this administration is probably going to be more proactive regarding urban revitalization and prison reform than any president in your lifetime.

If we work together, give him a chance, don’t pay any attention to these guys back here, and I’ll promise you, we will do something that…this administration will continue to make history. It’s going to be a lot of positive changes. Great things are on the horizon, I promise.

Scott said to “work together” and “give him [President Trump] a chance.”

“So, I guess the greatest word I can say for you, Mr. President, is that you have given this country expectations, given us a new hope, a new excitement to believe that things are getting better and going to get better,” Pastor Phillip Goudeaux of Calvary Christian Center in Sacramento, Calif., said.

Scott added that the Trump “administration will continue to make history.”
