Donald Trump continues to reach out to black voters, and a black pastor says there are two issues that the GOP presidential candidate needs to talk about.

“It starts with education,” says Pastor Mark Burns, who supports allowing parents to choose their child’s school. “And it starts with empowering businesses so that we can continue to rebuild our communities in the country.”

Trump is set to attend a worship service at a black church, Great Faith Ministries International, which is pastored by Bishop Wayne T. Jackson.

That church visit will be followed by a TV interview on Impact Network, which is owned by the church.

The planned visit this weekend is part of Trump’s goal to peel black voters from the Democratic Party, which has a virtual lock on their support.

Trump is blasting Democrat leaders for failing black communities for decades, pointing out to black voters that they keep electing Democrats but see no improvement in their public schools and inner-city communities.

“The Democratic Party has failed and betrayed the African-American community,” Trumps said last month at a campaign stop in Wisconsin.
