If you’re relying on the lamestream media for your news — clearly those of you reading this post, wisely, are not — you would think the main takeaway from GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump’s visit to Detroit is that he is being received by protests. Of course, if history is any guide, we can expect that many of these protesters are paid to be there by left-wing progressives like big-time Clinton donor George Soros or perhaps the DNC itself.
That aside, the mainstream media continues its mission to try to stop Trump from becoming president, largely by continuing to push their narrative that he is a racist bigot.
So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the media doesn’t quite know what to do with the prayer shawl — and standing ovation — the GOP nominee received following his speech to an historically black church in Detroit.
Via The Gateway Pundit:
Donald Trump spoke at the Great Faith Ministries Church in Detroit on Saturday.

Donald Trump ended his 14 minute speech with a Bible verse.
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. “No one has ever seen God but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
The audience gave him a standing ovation.

Folks across social media are reporting that many networks cut their live feeds as Trump was receiving the prayer shawls from the black Bishop.
We will have Trump’s speech from Detroit church up in a minute. Funny how the MSM cut the feed the moment Bishop was blessing him.

Whether the networks intentionally dropped the feed or not, we can’t verify for sure at this point. Regardless, it’s a sad state of affairs when our media has so destroyed the public’s faith in them.
You can watch Trump’s full speech here — worth watching to see a side of Donald Trump the media doesn’t let you see:

Here are some of the key highlights, courtesy of the Washington Examiner:
Donald Trump got a standing ovation at the prediminantly black Great Faith International Ministries in Detroit, Mich., Saturday with an address that included him claiming he understood the concerns of minority communities.
“I fully understand that the African-American community has suffered from discrimination,” the Republican presidential nominee told his audience. “And that there are many wrongs that must still be made right. They will be made right.”
Trump also said it is his goal to make Detroit the “economic envy of the world.”
Later, he said it is his hope that America turns its face to God.
“Now in these hard times for our country, let us turn again to our Christian heritage to lift up the soul of our nation,” Trump said. “I am so deeply grateful to be here today. And it is my prayer that America of tomorrow, and I mean that, that the America of tomorrow will be one of unity, togetherness and peace — and perhaps we can add the word prosperity.”
Trump also praised his audience directly, and lauded their efforts in the community.
“For centuries, the African-American church has been the conscience of our country. So true,” he said. “The African-American faith community has been one of God’s greatest gifts to America, and to its people.”
Would love to know what y’all think about it all.
