    In an EBONY magazine op-ed Friday, more than 100 black pastors, professors and activists denounced those in the community who are expected to give their support to Trump's White House bid.

    Mr. Trump routinely uses overtly divisive and racist language on the campaign trail,” the op-ed says ...

    Trump’s campaign has also canceled a news conference with Trump and the leaders, although the meeting is still scheduled, according to spokeswoman Hope Hicks.

    Bishop Corletta Vaughn, senior pastor of The Holy Ghost Cathedral in Detroit, said in a Facebook posting that she declined an invitation to meet with Trump and will not support him. In an earlier post, she called Trump “an insult and embarrassment” ...

    Trump cancels event with black pastors after other clergy raise concerns



    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Republican presidential front runner Donald Trump has canceled a public event set for Monday where he had planned to announce endorsements from black pastors, after a group of African-American academics and clergy members urged them to reconsider, citing Trump's "racially inaccurate ... rhetoric."
