NEW YORK, June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- While some expected the election of the first black President to usher in a new era of racial harmony, many Americans believe he had the opposite effect. Prominent black evangelical minister, Bishop E.W. Jackson, is part of the Steering Committee that organized Mr. Trump's meeting today in New York City with a thousand evangelical ministers.
According to Jackson, "Barack Obama has been perhaps the most racially divisive president since Democrat Woodrow Wilson, who supported the KKK." President Obama has supported every left wing racial demagogue who rears his head, taking advice from Al Sharpton, accusing the police of widespread racism, and most recently singing the praises of the radical Black Lives Matter group. Bishop Jackson says "We need a President who will heal the divide left by Obama. Can Donald Trump do that?"
Jackson is one of the leaders who met with Mr. Trump today at the Marriott Marquis in Time Square. Questions were posed to the candidate on his positions on issues Christian leaders believe are under attack by the Democratic party, liberal judges, and legislators. Obama administration lawsuits against Hobby Lobby and Little Sisters of the Poor are just two examples of anti-Christian hostility and bigotry. "There is no question that Christianity is under assault," says Bishop Jackson. "There are left wing activists in our country who are militant in their opposition to the Bible, the Church and God. We need a president who understands that Judeo-Christian values are the foundation of our nation. Destroy that Foundation and you have fundamentally transformed America into a different country. We need to be one nation under God, not one nation without God. I hope Donald Trump can help restore that foundation."
Bishop Jackson (@ewjacksonsr) tweeted videos of the event and reported on it in his weekly "National Emergency Coalition Conference Call" held at noon on Tuesday. When a caller asked what he hoped the outcome of the meeting with Mr. Trump would be, Bishop Jackson responded that he would like to see "The evangelical community unify around Donald Trump" adding that "My attitude has been changed by this meeting."
