Trump con hit by black pastors

CNN - Several black pastors invited to meet with Donald Trump  have denied reports that they had plans to endorse the presidential candidate at the event.

And Trump's presidential campaign has canceled a press conference with Trump and those religious leaders.

Bishop Clarence McClendon, a Los Angeles-based pastor who like Trump has appeared on reality television, was invited to the meeting but will not attend.

"The meeting was presented not as a meeting to endorse but a meeting to engage in dialogue," he said Friday on Facebook.

"The Preachers of L.A." star said he will not make up his mind to endorse until January 2016.

Bishop Corletta Vaughn, Senior Pastor of The Holy Ghost Cathedral and a star of the Oxygen reality series "Preachers of Detroit," said she was invited to the meeting but will not attend nor endorse Trump.

"Trump is an insult and embarrassment. But he represents the country we have become," she said Wednesday on Facebook. "Zero experience ... Flaunting a ticket of unbridled bigotry, sexism, racism and everything that is wrong with America."

The meeting was described by the campaign in a press release as, "a coalition of 100 African American Evangelical pastors and religious leaders who will endorse the GOP front runner after a private meeting at Trump Tower."

Bishop Paul S. Morton tweeted Friday that he refused to meet with Trump, calling the candidate disrespectful.

This Tony Clifton imposter books Meet the Press. But Andy Kaufman gets voted off SNL. Trump needs a spiritual overhaul, as does the US, said Dr. King.
