Trump To Visit Black Church After Year Without A Single Black Community Event

August 29, 2016 12:30 p.m.

After going more than a year without holding a single campaign event in a black community, Donald Trump is slated to visit a predominantly black church, the New York Times reported on Monday

Trump will campaign at Great Faith Ministries in Detroit on Saturday, where Bishop Wayne T. Jackson will interview him, the campaign confirmed to the Times.

Pastor Mark Burns, a Trump campaign surrogate, told the newspaper the GOP nominee would talk about crime, educational opportunities and unemployment during the event.

In his efforts to improve dismal poll numbers among black voters, the New York real estate mogul has continued to campaign in largely white communities, while telling black citizens they live in neighborhoods ravaged by crime and unemployment.

“What the hell do you have to lose?” Trump has asked black voters.
