Pastor Denounces Trump's Racist Slur in Front of Mike Pence

Pastor Denounces Trump's Racist Slur in Front of Mike Pence

I stand today as your pastor to vehemently denounce and reject such characterisations of the nations [inaudible], and of our brothers and sisters in Haiti.

Watson said he felt "led by God to do it" and noted many of his congregants come from Haiti or African nations.

With an evident understanding of Trump's childish mind, he then went on to say that while descendants of these countries most likely won't receive an apology for the language directed toward them, he proclaimed that he and church members at least have an understanding of their humanity.

The pastor said "whoever made such a statement" is wrong and should be held accountable.

A pastor in Maryland who had Vice President Mike Pence as a captive audience on Sunday took the opportunity to attack the politician's boss, calling President Donald Trump's comments on Haiti and Africa "hurtful", "dehumanizing" and "vulgar".

In his "CNN Tonight" interview, Watson said Trump's rhetoric "is tearing this nation apart" and "makes people of color feel dehumanized".

New York Daily News reports Metropolitan Baptist worshipers said the vice president grew visibly red-faced as the Rev. Maurice Watson called Trump out for his comments.

In an email to the Associated Press, a spokesperson for Pence denied that his face turned red. "I can not believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday", Mr Durbin said.

Watson did not use Trump's name when speaking, but it was clear who he was talking about as Pence and his wife looked on. But even if you don't get one, as your pastor, and your Metropolitan family will stand shoulder to shoulder, heart to heart and breast to breast with you, as we acknowledge your worth, your dignity, your humanness. "As a pastor, I have to speak up for my people".
