Black Christian Leaders Defend Trump After Charlottesville

Most Americans get it. Support for Trump after the violence in Charlottesville has not waned with average Americans, just with the left.

Even with all the false and negative spin generated by the media, there are groups rallying around the President and they are willing to speak up, in public.

The Christian Post reports how a group of black Christian leaders are speaking out in support of Trump:

A group of conservative black pastors and intellectual leaders on Monday defended President Donald Trump amid criticism of his initial response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend.

While some, like Charlottesville Mayor Mike Signer, have claimed that there is a “direct line” between the events in Charlottesville and the choices Trump made in his 2016 presidential campaign, conservative African-American clergy members, scholars and political activists decried such an argument in a Monday press conference at the National Press Club.

… “One thing you need to understand — you are saying that the president is the instigator and I think that is absolutely wrong. No, it is not disingenuous,” McCoy asserted. “The president made his comments and we are not standing up here to say that we are best friends with everything the president does but he is in an office that we all respect. … If we are looking about how we can move our country forward, we are trying to make sure that we do that collectively together.”

Corrogan Vaughn, a political activist who ran against Democrat Rep. Elijah Cummings of Maryland in the 2016 election, argued that those in the media who blame Trump for the racial tension in the United States are trying to turn Trump into a “villain.”

“Don’t make our commander in chief a villain when in actuality it is more the villainess of the media in terms of making something where nothing is,” Vaughn stated.

Now will someone explain to the media how a group of black Christians can remain so unoffended at Trump’s actions?

Perhaps because they, like the rest of America are not buying into the lies of the left.
