Transcript and video of Donald Trump's speech today at Bishop Wayne T.Jackson's Great Faith Ministries in Detroit,MI, an African American congregation which invited him to speak.
The transcript and video are provided for future reference. The speech, delivered in a very humble manner by Mr. Trump, showed his true heart for this country and all of its people.
Rarely has any Republican in recent times made such an overt effort to gain the votes of the black community in America, which has overwhelmingly voted Democrat for the last 50 years. Mr. Trump was accompanied by Ben and Candy Carson and Omarosa Manigault. After this speech, Mr. Trump was presented with a prayer shawl blessed in Israel and two Jewish heritage Study Bibles, one for him and one for his wife,Melania. The shawl was placed over his shoulders by Bishop Jackson in a touching display which was reminiscent of an anointing of someone set apart to do the work of the Lord. He was also given a lapel pin, which he asked to have placed on his lapel right away--the honors then being done by Bishop Jackson's wife, Dr. Jackson.
If Trump is elected, I hope he makes Bishop Jackson the official chaplain of the White House.
Here is a transcript, along with video, for future reference of today’s speech by Mr. Trump in Detroit.
Bishop Jackson remarks and demeanor were very impressive.
Jim. Exit got it taken care of.

MR. TRUMP: THANK YOU. I JUST WROTE THIS THE OTHER DAY KNOWING THAT I WOULD BE HERE AND I MEAN IT FROM THE HEART AND I WOULD LIKE TO JUST READ IT AND I THINK YOU WILL UNDERSTAND IT BETTER THAN I DO IN CERTAIN WAYS. FOR CENTURIES, THE AFRICAN AMERICAN CHURCH HAS BEEN THE CONSCIENCE OF OUR COUNTRY, SO TRUE. IT IS FROM THE PEWS AND PULPITS AND CHRISTIAN TEACHINGS OF BLACK CHURCHES ALL ACROSS THIS LAND THAT THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT LIFTED ITS SOLE — SOUL IT IS FROM THESE PEWS THAT OUR NATION HAS BEEN INSPIRED TOWARD A BETTER MORAL CHARACTER, DEEPER CONCERN FOR MANKIND, AND A SPIRIT OF CHARITY AND UNITY THAT BINDS US ALL TOGETHER. AND WE ARE BOUND TOGETHER AND I SEE THAT TODAY. THIS HAS BEEN AN AMAZING DAY FOR ME. THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN FATE IMMUNITY HAS BEEN ONE OF GOD’S GREATEST GIFTS TO AMERICA AND TO ITS PEOPLE. THERE IS PERHAPS NO ACTION OUR LEADERS CAN TAKE TO DO MORE TO HEAL OUR COUNTRY AND SUPPORT OUR PEOPLE, AND TO PROVIDE A GREATER PLATFORM TO THE BLACK CHURCHES AND CHURCHGOERS.
YOU DO RIGHT EVERY DAY BY YOUR COMMUNITY AND YOUR FAMILIES. YOU RAISE CHILDREN IN THE LIGHT OF GOD. AND I WILL ALWAYS SUPPORT YOUR CHURCH, ALWAYS, AND DEFEND YOUR RIGHT TO WORSHIP. SO IMPORTANT. I AM HERE TO LISTEN TO YOUR MESSAGE, AND I HOPE MY PRESENCE HERE WILL ALSO HELP YOUR VOICE TO REACH NEW AUDIENCES IN OUR COUNTRY, AND MANY OF THESE AUDIENCES DESPERATELY NEED YOUR SPIRIT IN YOUR PRAYER. CHRISTIAN FAITH IS NOT THE PAST, BUT THE PRESENT OF FUTURE. MAKE IT STRONGER. MAKE IT STRONGER. [APPLAUSE] OPEN IT UP TO GREAT, GREAT LEADERS LIKE BISHOP JACKSON, DR. JACKSON. AND SO MANY OTHERS. AND SO MANY OTHERS ACTUALLY SITTING HERE. DARRELL SCOTT WHO HAS BEEN WITH ME FOR SO LONG. OMAROSA, WHO IS A VERY NICE PERSON. I DON’T WANT TO DESTROY HER IMAGE FOR SAYING THAT. SHE IS A VERY NICE PERSON AND A PASTOR. AND THERE IS SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN VERY SPECIAL TO ME, DR. BEN CARSON. STAND UP, BEN. COME HERE. [APPLAUSE] THIS IS A GREAT MAN AND A GREAT GUY. [APPLAUSE] SO, AS I PREPARE TO CAMPAIGN ALL ACROSS THE NATION, AND IN EVERY COMMUNITY, I WILL HAVE AND OPPORTUNITY TO LAY OUT MY PLANS FOR ECONOMIC CHANGE, WHICH WOULD BE SO GREAT FOR DETROIT, AND SO GREAT FOR THIS COMMUNITY, BECAUSE WE ARE GOING TO BRING JOBS. THANK YOU. WE ARE TAKING THEM BACK FROM MEXICO. AND EVERYWHERE ELSE BECAUSE THEY ARE GONE I WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO DISCUSS ON HOW TO PUT EVERY AMERICAN ON THE LATTER FOR SUCCESS FOR GRADE EDUCATION AND GREAT JOBS. BUT TODAY, I WANT TO LET YOU KNOW, THAT I AM HERE TO LISTEN TO YOU, AND I HAVE BEEN DOING THAT. WE HAD A FANTASTIC INTERVIEW WITH THE BISHOP JACKSON. HE IS BETTER THAN THE PEOPLE WHO DO THAT PROFESSIONALLY. [APPLAUSE] HE IS BETTER. AND I DID NOT REALLY KNOW WHAT I WAS GETTING MYSELF INTO. IS THIS GOING TO BE WILD. HE IS A GREAT GENTLEMAN AND A VERY NICE GUY. JUST HOPE YOU DON’T LOSE HIM TO HOLLYWOOD. AND ESPECIALLY DR. JACKSON. SHE MAY BE GONE. LOOK AT ALL OF THOSE TELEVISION CAMERAS THERE. [APPLAUSE] LOOK AT ALL THOSE TELEVISION CAMERAS. I AM START TO DO THAT TO YOU, BISHOP. IT IS ONE OF THOSE THINGS, RIGHT? OUR NATION IS TOO DIVIDED. WE TALK PAST EACH OTHER, NOT TO EACH OTHER. THOSE WHO SEEK OFFICE DO NOT DO ENOUGH TO STEP INTO THE COMMUNITY AND LEARN WHAT IS GOING ON. THEY DON’T KNOW. THEY HAVE NO CLUE. I AM HERE TODAY TO LEARN SO WE CAN TOGETHER, REMEDY INJUSTICE IN ANY FORM, SO THAT WE COULD ALSO REMEDY ECONOMICS. SO THAT HE AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY — SO THAT THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY CAN BENEFIT ECONOMICALLY THROUGH JOBS AND INCOME IN SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS. OUR POLITICALLY SYSTEM HAS FAILED THE PEOPLE AND WORKS ONLY TO ENRICH ITSELF. I WANT TO REFORM THAT SYSTEM SO THAT IT WORKS FOR YOU. EVERYBODY IN THIS ROOM. I BELIEVE TRUE REFORM CAN ONLY COME FROM OUTSIDE THE SYSTEM. I REALLY MEAN THAT. BEING A BUSINESSMAN IS MUCH DIFFERENT THAN BEING A POLITICIAN BECAUSE I UNDERSTAND WHAT IS HAPPENING. AND WE ARE GOING OUTSIDE OF THE ESTABLISHMENT. BECOMING THE NOMINEE OF THE PARTY OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN, A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T REALIZE THAT ABRAHAM LINCOLN, THE GREAT ABRAHAM LINCOLN WAS A REPUBLICAN. HAS BEEN THE GREATEST HONOR OF MY LIFE. IT IS ON HIS LEGACY THAT I HOPE TO BUILD THE FUTURE OF THE PARTY, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY, THE FUTURE OF THE COUNTRY IN THE COMMUNITY. I BELIEVE WE NEED A CIVIL RIGHTS AGENDA OF OUR TIME, THE RIGHT TO A GREAT EDUCATION AND THE RIGHT TO LIVE IN SAFETY AND PEACE AND HAVE A REALLY GREAT JOB, A GOOD PAYING JOB, AND ONE YOU LOVE TO GO TO EVERY MORNING. AND THAT CAN HAPPEN. WE CAN BRING OUR COMPANIES BACK. IT ALSO MEANS THE RIGHT TO HAVE A GOVERNMENT THAT PROTECTS OUR WORKERS AND REALLY FIGHTS FOR OUR JOBS. I WANT TO HELP YOU BUILD AND REBUILD THE, AND WE CAN DO THAT, ESPECIALLY WITH PEOPLE LIKE BISHOP JACKSON AND DR. JACKSON. I MEAN THAT. IT’S BEEN AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE. NOTHING IS MORE SAD THAN WHEN WE SIDELINE YOUNG BLACK MEN WITH UNFULFILLED POTENTIAL, TREMENDOUS POTENTIAL. I MET SOME PEOPLE THIS MORNING WHO WERE INCREDIBLE PEOPLE AND THEY’RE LOOKING FOR JOBS. THESE ARE INCREDIBLE PEOPLE, YOUNG PEOPLE. OUR WHOLE COUNTRY LOSES OUT WHEN WE ARE UNABLE TO HARNESS THE BRILLIANCE AND ENERGY OF THESE FOLKS. WE ARE ONE NATION, AND WHEN ANYONE HURTS, WE ALL HURT TOGETHER, AND THAT’S SO TRUE. WE ARE ALL BROTHERS AND SISTERS, AND ALL CREATED BY THE SAME GOD. WE MUST LOVE EACH OTHER AND SUPPORT EACH OTHER, AND WE ARE IN THIS ALTOGETHER. ALTOGETHER. I FULLY UNDERSTAND THAT THE AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY HAS SUFFERED FROM DISCRIMINATION, AND THERE ARE MANY WRONGS THAT MUST STILL BE MADE RIGHT, THAT WILL BE MADE RIGHT. I WANT TO MAKE AMERICA PROSPEROUS FOR EVERYONE. I WANT TO MAKE THE CITY THE ECONOMIC ENVY OF THE WORLD. WE CAN DO THAT, WE CAN DO THAT AGAIN. FACTORIES EVERYWHERE, NEW ROADS AND BRIDGES, NEW SCHOOLS, ESPECIALLY SCHOOLS, AND HOPE. I HAVE BEEN SO GREATLY BLESSED IN SO MANY WAYS WITH NO GREATER BLESSINGS IN MY FAMILY. NOTHING WOULD MAKE ME HAPPIER AND MORE FULFILLED THAN TO USE WHAT I HAVE LEARNED IN BUSINESS AND IN TRAVELING ALL OVER THE WORLD AND SORT OF SEEING A LOT TO BRING THE WEALTH AND PROSPERITY AND OPPORTUNITY TO THOSE WHO HAVE NOT HAD THESE OPPORTUNITIES BEFORE, AND THAT’S MANY, MANY PEOPLE IN DETROIT. WHEN I SEE WAGES FALLING, PEOPLE OUT OF WORK, I KNOW THE HARDSHIPS THIS INFLICTS AND I’M DETERMINED TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. I WILL DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. I DO GET THINGS DONE. SOME PEOPLE HAVE STRENGTHS. THAT’S ONE OF MINE. I GET THINGS DONE. FOR ANY WHO HAVE HEARD IT, THINGS ARE GOING TO TURN AROUND. TOMORROW WILL BE BETTER. THE PASTOR AND I WERE TALKING ABOUT RIDING UP THE STREET AND WE SEE ALL THOSE CLOSED STORES AND PEOPLE SITTING ON THE SIDEWALK AND NO JOBS AND NO ACTIVITY. WE WILL GET IT TURNED AROUND, PASTOR. BELIEVE ME. [APPLAUSE] WE ARE GOING TO WIN AGAIN AS A COUNTRY AND WE ARE GOING TO WIN AGAIN FOR ALL OF OUR PEOPLE. I WANT TO WORK WITH YOU TO RENEW THE BONDS OF TRUST BETWEEN CITIZENS AND THE BONDS OF FAITH THAT MAKE OUR NATION STRONG. AMERICA HAS BEEN LIFTED OUT OF MANY OF ITS MOST DIFFICULT HOURS, THROUGH THE MARIGOLD OF FACE, AND THROUGH PEOPLE LIKE BISHOP JACKSON AND DR. JACKSON. SO IMPORTANT. PEOPLE HAVE NO IDEA HOW IMPORTANT THEY ARE. NOW IN THESE HARD TIMES FOR OUR COUNTRY, LET US TURN AGAIN TO OUR CHRISTIAN HERITAGE TO LIFT UP THE SOUL OF OUR NATION. I’M SO DEEPLY GRATEFUL TO BE HERE TODAY, AND IT IS MY PRAYER THAT AMERICA OF TOMORROW, THAT THE AMERICA OF TOMORROW WILL BE ONE OF UNITY, TOGETHERNESS, AND PEACE. AND PERHAPS WE CAN ADD THE WORD PROSPERITY. VERY PROSPEROUS. I’D
LIKE TO CONCLUDE WITH A PASSAGE FROM FIRST JOHN CHAPTER FOUR. 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 LOVES — LIVES IN US AND HIS LOVE IS MADE COMPLETE IN US. AND THAT’S SO TRUE. THANK YOU SO MUCH. THIS HAS BEEN AN HONOR. THANK YOU SIR. THANK YOU. Show Less Text
