Republican nominee Donald Trump will speak on issues related to the black community in an interview Saturday in Detroit set to be aired on a black television channel.
“Donald J. Trump will be speaking at the only African American owned and operated national Christian television network, The Impact Network, Saturday, September 3rd, at 11am. Impact Network President and CEO, Bishop Wayne T. Jackson, will interview Mr. Trump at Great Faith Ministries in Detroit, Michigan,” Trump supporter Pastor Mark Burns said in a statement Sunday night.
The statement states that Trump will “answer questions that are relevant to the African American community such as education (including HBCUs), unemployment, making our streets safe and creating better opportunities for all. ” In addition, the Republican nominee will “give an address to outline policies that will impact minorities and the disenfranchised in our country.”
In the past weeks, Trump has been making a concerted effort to reach out to black voters. At one rally, he asked black voters “what the hell do you have to lose?”
