Big doings in Cleveland Heights this morning as Donald Trump visits

Local black Democrats to demand apology from GOP candidate for leading Birther movement while Trump holds Town Hall meeting at New Spirit Revival Center

CLEVELAND HEIGHTS OH — Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will be at New Spirit Revival Center today for what is billed as a “town hall meeting to discuss issues confronting urban America”.

Fox News Channel is convening the meeting, which will be taped live and Special Guest will be the GOP Nominee for President, Donald Trump.

The event will be taped live beginning around 9:30am and is scheduled for broadcast tonight at 10pm. About 40 people who signed up are expected to be a part of the campaign event.
While Trump is inside, a counter event will be held directly across the street from the church, which is located at 3130 Mayfield Road, just east of Lee Road.

Several African American elected officials are expected to hold a 10:30am press conference to ask Trump to apologize for leading the birther movement, widely condemned as an attempt to delegitimize the first black President of the United States. State Senator Sandra Williams, State Rep. Janine Boyd, and Cuyahoga County Councilman Anthony Hairston are expected to speak.

New Spirit Church is led by Pastor Darrell Scott, who delivered a fiery six-minute talk at the Republican National Convention, held in Cleveland in July.
