According to Pastor W.J. Rideout III – a black man – Trump is the devil whose campaign slogan of “Make America Great Again” actually refers to “hanging black people from trees.”
The Detroit pastor is a community activist and the founder of the group Defenders of Truth and Justice. He was a guest on MSNBC with host Joy Reid when he made his inflammatory comments. Here’s what he said:
“This man, this evil man, this evil hearted, evil talking man, foolish talking man axed the question to America, he said what the hell do we have to lose? Well, Donald Trump, we’ll lose our soul dealing with you. We’ll lose our lives dealing with you.
“You say you want to make America great? It’s not making America great when I see white people spitting on black people, knocking black people up side the head. What do you call America being great again? Hanging black people from trees?
“What do you call America great again? When you are disrespecting Latinos, Hispanics, and lesbians and gays, when you’re trying to make it a right-wing group. This is a moral issue that we are dealing with, people. It’s not about left and right. It’s about right and wrong. And America needs to wake up and know that this man is doing the work of the devil.
“And I hope and pray that everybody that is going to vote do not vote for this man, because you are going to destroy America. He cannot fix what is already broken. Okay?
“Listen, you can not keep the devil out when the person is talking against the people of God. You can’t keep the devil out. That is the devil.”
