The members of the Charlotte, N.C., congregation say they’re tired of the same ole same ole from Democrats.
The entire congregation of a historically black church in Charlotte, N.C., supports Donald Trump for president over his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.
Representatives of the membership of Antioch Road to Glory International Ministries say that they are endorsing the Republican candidate around the issues of job creation and reform of the criminal-justice system.
Katrina Rodgers, daughter of the pastor and founder of Antioch, Thomas Rodgers Sr., cited the 1994 “three strikes” crime bill as the primary reason they’re not behind Clinton.
The crime bill has indisputably led to the mass incarceration of African Americans, something Hillary Clinton has admitted to. “We want to break away from more of the same,” says Rodgers.
Her father was more blunt in his assessment: “I think that she is very dangerous and reckless, and her past track record is a great indication that she is not fit to lead this country—or any other country,” he said to CNN.
A recent Facebook post likened endorsing the former secretary of state to being in a violent relationship: “Supporting Hillary is like being with an abusive ex, one that has left you wounded and broken. It’s time to give the new guy a chance.”
