Trump shows heart and humility to black voters


On Saturday in Detroit, Michigan, America saw a side of Donald Trump that has rarely been seen during this presidential election cycle.

Trump made a campaign stop at Great Faith Ministries Church in Detroit, a predominantly African-American Christian church. The Republican nominee spoke for about 20 minutes to the congregation with both passion and humility.

“Today, I’m here to listen,” said Trump. He assured the faithful, “I mean it from the heart.”

As he began his remarks, which he wrote himself a few days earlier, he told the congregation, “I think you will understand it even better than I do in certain ways.”

And then he was off, making arguably one of his best speeches this side of his announcement that he was running for president.

“For centuries the African-American church has been the conscience of our country,” he told the congregation. “It’s from the pews and pulpits and Christian teachings of black churches all across this land that the civil rights movement lifted up its soul and lifted up the soul of our nation.”

“It’s from these pews that our nation has been inspired toward a better moral character, a deeper concern for mankind and spirit of charity and unity that binds us all together,” Trump said.
