“We need a civil-rights agenda for our time,” Mr. Trump said. The remarks were made at Great Faith Ministries to a room filled to its capacity. Mr. Trump’s visit to an economically-depressed section of Detroit congregation largely populated by African-Americans kicked off his initiative to reach inner-city voters. He called for social unity and pledging to listen to African-Americans.
“I fully understand the African-American community has suffered from discrimination,” Mr. Trump said. He referenced disparities in education, employment and public safety, and promised to bring “prosperity” to lower-income Americans.
Prior to the service, Mr. Trump conducted a one-on-one interview with Bishop Wayne Jackson, Great Faith’s pastor and a self-proclaimed lifelong Democrat. That conversation will be aired by the Impact Network on later date.
Ben Carson, a former rival in the race for the Republican nomination and now an adviser, traveled to Detroit with Mr. Trump and Omarosa Manigault, who runs the campaign’s African-American outreach.
Mr. Trump drove around with Mr. Carson to the adviser’s childhood home in Southwest Detroit for a brief visit.
