Saying he was there to "listen to your message," Donald Trump stuck to a prepared script during a service held at Great Faith Ministries Church in Detroit before a predominately African American congregation.
As the service began, Trump could be seen near the front of the church swaying to "What a Mighty God We Serve."
"This has been an amazing day for me," Trump said after taking the stage. He called the African American Christian community "one of God's greatest gifts to America" and said he was attending the religious service in Detroit on Saturday "to listen to your message -- and I hope my presence here today will help your message reach new voices."
The GOP presidential candidate appeared at Great Faith Ministries with former "Apprentice" contestant Omarosa Manigualt and former Republican presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, a Detroit native. Trump later paid a quick visit to Carson's childhood home on South Deacon Street in southwest Detroit. Read more here
