Presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks to the media after meeting with a group of black pastors at his office in the Manhattan borough of New YorkBy Emily Flitter NEW YORK (Reuters) – Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump met a group of black pastors on Monday over the objection of other African-American clergy and academics who had assailed what they called the candidate’s racially charged rhetoric. Trump, the billionaire mogul, emerged from the more than two-hour meeting saying it went “very well.” He said some of the attendees had agreed to endorse him, but the group did not present a formal list of new supporters. Jordynn Parks, daughter of network co-founder Pastor Mark Burns, said clergy members in attendance regularly appear on the network.
