“We voiced concerns sensitive to the African American community. We’re all satisfied with the answers,” said pastor Dr. Darrell Scott about meeting with Donald J. Trump. “Nobody at this meeting came out with negative reaction in any kind of way. Everybody in the room likes Donald Trump.”

Trump insists ‘most’ black pastors endorsing him

Donald Trump is insisting that “most” of the 100 black pastors he met with on Monday are endorsing him for president.

“I thought it was an amazing meeting. I met some fantastic people,” Trump said following the private meeting at Trump Tower.

The GOP presidential front-runner had canceled a planned press conference on Sunday where he was to have highlighted the endorsements of 100 black religious leaders. He did so after several of the pastors denied they were endorsing Trump for president.

Darrell Scott, a pastor at the New Spirit Revival Center in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, stood by Trump’s side on Monday, saying that the meeting was “productive” and “constructive” and that the group of religious leaders are a “united front.”

“We voiced concerns sensitive to the African-American community,” Scott said. “We’re all satisfied with the answers.”

Scott said there were a number of pastors who endorsed Trump, but didn’t have an official number. He said the religious leaders who remain undecided are “praying about it.”

“Nobody at this meeting came out with negative reaction in any kind of way,” Scott said, adding that “Everybody in the room likes Donald Trump.”
