Trump Surrogate Confronted by Undocumented Immigrant on Way to Meeting at Trump Tower
Anti-Trump protesters surrounded Trump Tower Thursday in anticipation of Donald Trump's roundtable meeting with black and Latino activists in New York.
“The numbers are going up with the African-American community rapidly,” Trump said at the meeting, insisting he had “always had great relationships with the African-American community" and wants to make America great again for everybody, “including the Hispanics, AfricanAmericans, everybody."
Pastor Mark Burns, an African-American faith leader, defended Trump's statements.
“We have laid hands on him, and I believe without a doubt Mr. Trump truly, truly wants to be a president for all Americans," Burns told MSNBC following the meeing.
However, the protesters outside Trump Tower adamantly disagreed. One even interjected himself into a heated debate with the Trump surrogate.
"Do you want my mother and my father to be deported?" one protester, an undocumented immigrant, asked Burns repeatedly. "Answer the question."
"There is a proper way..." Burns told the protester, before entering the building.
"It was absolutely a unified front," Burns later told Fox News regarding the meeting. He also claimed that Trump has “a lot of African-American supporters, more than the polls would ever show.”
Burns has previously admitted that his big draw to Trump is the GOP nominee's anti-choice stance.
