Gospel Singer Donnie McClurkin Stir Up Controversy, says Christians Should Stop Protesting President Trump

Is Trump is gaining support in the black community?

Just recently, gospel singer Tina Campbell threw some support towards Donald Trump, and now, Grammy Award winner Donnie McClurkin is the latest gospel singer to do so.

In an interview with on Erica Campbell’s morning show, McClurkin said, “The protests do nothing but rile up. It causes people’s anger to rise up and it gives us a false sense of involvement.”

Campbell didn’t agree with his point, saying that protests call more attention to matters.

McClurkin still wasn’t with it. He said while he didn’t vote for Trump because of his “lack of policy, misogynistic ideals, racism,” he doesn’t think protesting is the right thing to do.

“Now is our time to pray for him. This is the job of the church. Let the world protest but the job of the church now is to go into prayer and pray that, number one, he succeeds, because if he fails, we have to deal with the consequences as a nation,” he said.
