During a Thursday morning interview on CNN, Pastor Mark Burns made the case for why black Americans should vote for Donald Trump.

Burns, an avid Trump supporter, said he loves to “see the excitement in this country that more and more African-Americans that are standing up and saying I am supporting Donald Trump.”

“I understand what the Democratic party and Hillary Clinton have done for African-Americans,” he continued. “We are happy that we’ve elected the first black man to become president of these United States of America, but we also look back at many of our urban centers in this country. Many are still on welfare and many that are still unemployed.”

“We have been used by the Democratic Party for so long, now we have to have a voice,” Burns stated. “Many, many African-Americans across this country are waking up and saying, ‘Mr. Trump, we may not have liked how you’ve said certain things, but we do believe that you’re a winner.”

“We do believe you won’t use us like Hillary Clinton and the Democratic Party has used the African-American vote for all these years, and yet we are not where we deserve to be as the great people that we are as black Americans.”
