Republican presidential lead Donald Trump on Monday welcomed leaders from a kaleidoscope of religions in the skyscraper that he owns in New York City to pray with them, and to discuss again his strong support for Israel and for Christians who are currently persecuted around the world, and especially in Syria by the Islamic State ISIS.
The controversial business tycoon left a good impression on Christian Pastor Darrell Scott, who was one of the religious leaders invited to The Trump Tower. Pastor Scott could see a deep root of Trump faith that was inspired by his family roots and especially his biological mother, and his Presbyterian faith.
Scott described to The Brody File how Trump listened attentively making eye contact with enthusiasm while the religious leaders talked to him about current situations around the world and his upcoming presidential debate.
Donald Trump “humbly” accepted criticisms from the religious leaders, who asked him to tone down his rhetoric. He admitted that he had been wrong in some of his actions. But he never did it before being provoked to anger. He understands with the current stress in the world that everyone’s stress level is up a bit. This isn’t a normal presidential election. People are angry because they feel like their voices haven’t been heard, and now we see that weakness in the Middle East and around the world.
Donald Trump showed a deep respect for men and women of faith,” the Christian pastor was quoted by Breitbart.com as saying.
Scott further said Trump was also able to convince the invited black leaders of his sincerity in serving the country. Scott said the gathered pastors told the presidential candidate how he supposedly has not been able to connect with black voters.
“I think Donald Trump changed the opinions of the African-American pastors that were in the room. They saw a side of him outside of the media depiction, and that they would give strong consideration in regards to supporting his candidacy,” the pastor said. Trump showed them that he really didn’t have a prejudice side to him. Donald Trump could be fair to all men and women,
In a separate interview on NBC’s “Today’s Show,” Trump admitted that he is aware of the possibility that he may lose his frontrunner status.
“This is going to be an ebb and flow, how can I continue to lead by such wide margins?” Trump said.
The big-time mogul also acknowledged that he has been “a little childish” in attacking other candidates. He also said that he plans to return to managing his empire should he lose the White House race.
According to a Reuters report, Trump has also expressed support for the Russian government’s efforts to fight Islamic State militants in the Middle East, including Syria.
