A group of black religious and political leaders prayed over President Trump in the White House.
They placed their hands on the president and prayed for God’s blessing and guidance.
It was a powerful moment during a ceremony commemorating Black History Month.
Trump has been steadily building support among African Americans.
His America First policies have led to major breakthroughs including historic low unemployment rates as well as criminal justice reform.
The White House released footage of the meeting, including the prayer:
Those in attendance prayed for "healing that only God can deliver."
Trump touted his accomplishments, which have largely benefited the black community.
Many prominent religious and political leaders were in attendance.
Breitbart has more details on those who attended the event and prayed for President Trump:
Among those present were Alveda King, actor Isaiah Washington, World Boxing Champion Andre Berto, former NFL player and entrepreneur Jack Brewer, Pastor Darrell Scott, Lynette Hardaway and Rochelle Richardson, a.k.a. “Diamond and Silk,” Black Voices for Trump advisory board members Paris Denard, Deneen Borelli, and David Harris Jr., and author and activist Candace Owens.
President Trump also addressed hundreds of black leaders on Thursday in the East Room in a ceremony commemorating Black History Month.
“In every field, every generation, and every calling, African-Americans have lifted up our nation to new heights — and, like all citizens, you are entitled to a government that puts your needs, your interests, and your families first,” Trump said.
The Trump administration and re-election campaign have been intentional in their outreach and support to African Americans.
Aside from strong economic statistics and legislative victories for criminal justice reform, the Trump Administration also secured funding for historically black colleges.
The crowd at the event repeatedly chanted, "Four more years! Four more years!"
And before the prayer, an ex-NFL player even called Trump "the first black president."
The Hill has more details on Former NFL safety Jack Brewer's comments:
A former NFL player declared President Trump the “first black president” Thursday during a Black History Month round table discussion at the White House.
“Mr. President, I don’t mean to interrupt, but I’ve got to say this because it’s Black History Month: man, you are the first black president,” Former NFL safety Jack Brewer, who was a guest at the roundtable, told Trump.
The comment sparked a round of applause from the president’s other supporters who were in attendance, which included Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece Alveda King, conservative media personalities Diamond and Silk and others.
Brewer said he was a Democrat all his life until he was “changed” and “inspired” by President Trump.
“You’ve changed me. You touched me. And you made my work go to another level. You inspire me. And every time I go into those prisons and I ask my guys how many of them had their sentences reduced and they raise their hands, I know I’m doing God’s work and I thank you for that,” Brewer said.
The former Vikings player is an ordained minister and Fordham University professor.
After Brewer's comments, the guests then placed their hands on President Trump and prayed for him.
