Trump Addresses Empty Church As African-American Photo-Op Backfires In Detroit

Donald Trump's appearance at an African-American church in Detroit went wrong, as the congregation rejected Trump by not showing up to hear him speak.

5. In the article we learn that it was actually only "nearly" empty. From the picture it

appears to be ~1/3rd full - which is more than I expected, but certainly not "empty" (unless those were all press).

False headlines are not helpful, and border on being clickbait. Just give us the facts.

7. It looks pretty empty to me.

 

I bet it looks full with all the cameras up front though.

12. Didn't we all know already how this would turn out?

Trump and his handlers think that AAs are stupid and easily conned. But AAs, like everyone else, don't like being used and manipulated for a photo op. Just shows how inconpetent and insincere Trump is. It takes time, patience, and a loooong history of consistently good DEEDS and ACTIONS to win someone's trust. Trump is all appearance and no substance. Appearance and emptiness.

13. From a Washington Post article:

“Even if a candidate like Donald Trump was telling the truth about the conditions in some impoverished communities of color, it’s hard to receive it because he has been so flat-out disrespectful and inconsiderate of African Americans and people of color and their contributions to this country,” Wilkerson said. “The truth falls on deaf ears when you lack integrity.”
