Every news media account of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s visit to a black church in Detroit on Saturday noted — often at length — that his appearance drew protesters.

Trump later swayed and danced with the crowd as the choir sang to conclude Trump’s appearance.
During his appearance, Trump noted the significance of his role as the GOP nominee.
“Becoming the nominee of the party of Abraham Lincoln … has been the greatest honor of my life,” Trump said. “It is on his legacy that I hope to build the future of the party, but more importantly, the future of the country.”
Trump paid homage to the role of the black church, around which communities coalesced throughout America’s history.
“For centuries, the African-American church has been the conscience of this country. So true,” Trump said.
But the church, and its people, now face unholy times, he said.
“When I see wages falling, people out of work, I know the hardships this inflicts and I am determined to do something about it. I will do something about it,” Trump said. “I do get things done, I will tell you. I’m going to get things done.”
Trump noted that unity comes through reaching out as he did on Saturday.
“We talk past each other and not to each other. And those who seek office do not do enough to step into the community and learn what’s going on. I’m here today to learn, so that we can together remedy injustice in any form, and so that we can also remedy economics so that the African-American community can benefit economically through jobs and income and so many other different ways,” he said.
Trump also had a religious message for the crowd.
“I’d like to conclude with a passage from First John, Chapter 4. You know it. You see most groups I speak to don’t know that. But we know. If you want we can say it together,” Trump said, before reading the verse. “No one has ever seen God but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.”
When Trump was done, Bishop Wayne Jackson, the church’s pastor, draped a prayer shawl over Trump’s shoulders and handed him a Jewish Heritage Study Bible.
