Detroit pastor to grill Trump on issues of racism

The proposed answers were devised by aides working for the Trump campaign and the Republican National Committee, according to an official.

Perhaps the most important question Mr Trump is to face, is scheduled as the first and asks Mr Trump whether he is a Christian, if he believes in the Bible and is inspired by the word of God.

He will attend the Saturday service at Great Faith International Ministries and will also participate in an interview with Bishop Wayne Jackson that will air on Jackson's Impact Network.

The pastor's plan of having congregation members watch the candidate interviewed by their bishop without their participation is an insult to the intelligence of those congregants and the larger community, and will leave many wondering if the interview is nothing but an attempt to garner some viewership for Jackson's network.

"I hear him not talking to black people, but talking to white people about black people so they will think he cares about black people", said Alexis Scott, a former publisher of The Atlanta Daily World, a black-owned newspaper. Miller denied reports the taped interview would be edited by the campaign. Donald Trump will use the scripted interview as propaganda.

Trump may have built his fortune by swindling countless hard-working Americans, but it will not work on us. Your schools are no good.

Detroit is a "hot" locale for the upcoming election, so it's not surprising that Donald Trump will be returning to our city once again following his recent appearance at the Detroit Economic Club where he delivered what was perhaps the most controlled speech of his entire campaign.

And attendee Debbie Williams, a Republican running for Congress, told Trump her race was "going well", but added, "I can only imagine what's going to happen" after the meeting. So far, his main pitch to the African-American community is that they have "nothing to lose" in switching their partisan loyalties, since all black people "have no jobs" and can't "walk down the street" without getting shot. "Coming into a community is meaningless unless we offer an alternative to the terrible progressive agenda that has perpetuated a permanent underclass in America". "We can't stand behind police officers who are abusing their badges to kill people". Back during his days as a real estate mogul under his father's tutelage, Trump was successfully sued multiple times for discriminating against black and minority tenants. Speaking recently in a virtually all-white suburb of Detroit, he suggested that African-American communities are "suffering from Democratic control". And don't tell me African Americans are not smart enough to know when they're being bamboozled or they've been told the truth.

Trump met with a group of campaign-chosen supporters, who insisted that he has backing in the black community, although polls show the numbers are negligible.

The visit comes as Trump has been trying to attract black voters by asking: "What in the hell do you have to lose?".

For a while now, the Trump campaign has struggled to gain support from black voters.
