A standing ovation rang through walls of the Great Faith Ministries Church in Detroit, this past Saturday. Trump, who spoke for fourteen minutes to a crowd of mostly black congregants stirred their hearts and minds. He ended the speech with a Bible verse:

He spoke of always supporting the church and defending the right to worship, hoping that his being there would help their voices “reach a new audience” and that “these audiences desperately need your spirit and your thought.”
The success of his visit was encouraging for the black community as well as the Trump campaign.
