A historically Black church in Charlotte, North Carolina is endorsing Donald Trump. The reason why?—they aren’t feeling Hillary Clinton and want to give the new guy a chance, basically.
Church members at Antioch Road to Glory International Ministries held a town hall Sunday with headliners such as Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, and former “The Apprentice” star Omarosa.
The church knows Sunday’s event may set them apart from traditional political ideologies in the black community, but they feel what they are doing is what’s best for their community.
Katrina Rodgers is the daughter of the church’s founder and grew up through the church’s 38-year history.
She said she believes initiatives Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has supported have hurt the black community the church serves.
“It had a rippling effect,” Rodgers said. “Not only did the prison population increase but it brought about division in our homes.”
Supporting Trump will help working blacks, church members said.
Good luck with that.
