Adding to a lengthy list of political blunders, or as some see them, political successes, Donald Trump has once again managed to create a PR scandal– but this time, for himself.
Trump scheduled a press conference in preparation to announce that he is receiving support from over one hundred black ministers across the nation. The move was part of an effort to appeal to the black minority in the United States, which largely supports the Democratic party. Trump sent out invitations to several ministers to come to a meeting with him to discuss his endorsement.
Earlier this year, Trump held many smaller meetings with black ministers, some of whom ended up supporting him. They all stated that Trump did not make any sort of monetary donation to the church.
However, things fell short of Trump’s expectations. Several ministers refused to meet with Trump, some even denounced the invitation. As a result, Trump canceled the press conference, which was met with a strong media response as he had been advertising the conference beforehand.
