Entire Black Church in Charlotte Endorsing Donald Trump (Watch)

*Every last member of a black church in Charlotte, North Carolina has thrown support behind Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, believing the initiatives of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton are “reckless” and actually hurt the very community the church serves.

“It had a rippling effect,” Katrina Rodgers of Antioch Road to Glory International Ministries told WSOC TV of Clinton’s husband President Bill Clinton’s policies. “Not only did the prison population increase but it brought about division in our homes.”

“Providing jobs would automatically have a rippling effect on the economy which would have effects on crime rates which would have its effect on families,” Rodger said of Trump’s proposals.

Church members held a town hall Sunday with headliners such as Trump’s daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, and his standout on “The Apprentice” Omarosa, who is currently his Director of African American Outreach.

Rodgers, daughter of the church’s founder Thomas Rodgers, Sr., said their support of Trump may go against traditional political leanings in the black community, but they feel what they are doing is what’s best for their community.

Rodgers said she knows the move isn’t popular and the church has already been ridiculed for its stance.

“This is what we feel in our hearts of hearts that is right for us to do so we’re moving forward on that,” Rodgers said.

Watch a report on the church’s Town Hall below.

Lara Trump, wife of Donald’s son Eric Trump, made headlines in a post-Town Hall interview with CNN when she forgot the “definition of insanity” while trying to attack Clinton.

Below, Katrina Rodgers and her father Thomas Rodgers, Sr. lay out in detail why the church is supporting Trump over Clinton:
