Donald Trump got a standing ovation at the predominantly black Great Faith International Ministries in Detroit, Mich., Saturday with an address that included him claiming he understood the concerns of minority communities.
“I fully understand that the African-American community has suffered from discrimination,” the Republican presidential nominee told his audience. “And that there are many wrongs that must still be made right. They will be made right.”

Trump also said it is his goal to make Detroit the “economic envy of the world.”
Later, he said it is his hope that America turns its face to God.
“Now in these hard times for our country, let us turn again to our Christian heritage to lift up the soul of our nation,” Trump said. “I am so deeply grateful to be here today. And it is my prayer that America of tomorrow, and I mean that, that the America of tomorrow will be one of unity, togetherness and peace — and perhaps we can add the word prosperity.”
Trump also praised his audience directly, and lauded their efforts in the community.
“For centuries, the African-American church has been the conscience of our country. So true,” he said. “The African-American faith community has been one of God’s greatest gifts to America, and to its people.”
