WATCH: Black Leader Comes Out SWINGING For Donald Trump

During a roundtable discussion with black community leaders in Michigan, Donald Trump, the presumptive 2024 Republican presidential nominee, was informed by a black pastor that both former President Barack Obama and President Biden had never visited the west side neighborhood in Detroit. Lorenzo Sewell, the senior pastor of 180 Church, expressed his observation to Trump, highlighting the absence of these two prominent figures in the community.

“President Trump, I’m so humbled that you would be here,” Sewell said, “President Obama never came to the hood, so to speak, right? President Joe Biden, he went to the big NAACP dinner, but he never came to the hood. So thank you.”

“Thank you, pastor. Really nice,” Trump said as attendees erupted in applause. “Thank you, my honor.”

Watch:

A multitude of individuals gathered at Trump’s event, with notable figures such as Republican Michigan Rep. John James, former Police Chief James Craig, and Detroit rapper Sada Baby in attendance. The 20-minute roundtable discussion among small business owners and community members was moderated by Republican Florida Rep. Byron Donalds after Trump concluded his speech, as reported by the Detroit Free Press.

During the event, Trump expressed his belief that the prevalence of crime in black communities would diminish if he were elected president. He also criticized the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, a bill sponsored by Biden during his time as a U.S. senator, which has been widely blamed for contributing to mass incarceration.

Trump’s support among black voters has more than doubled since 2020, as he continues to gain ground by challenging Biden’s popularity in swing states and Democratic strongholds.
