Protesters interrupt to slam wealthy pastor's lavish lifestyle after hosting Donald Trump in Detroit

The pastor in question, Bishop Wayne T. Jackson, hosted Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump during his visit to Detroit earlier this month.


The leader of New Era Detroit, who only goes by the name Zeek, said that the group's protest was not limited to Jackson.

"The situation is bigger than just Wayne T. Jackson," Zeek told Fox 2 Detroit. "This is about black churches and black pastors who live a lavish life on behalf of the people and they are not giving back to their community," he added.

Zeek voiced out his observations after he attended the offering on Saturday.

"They started the offering at a thousand dollars," he said. "And then they said if you don't have $1,000 then do $300. If you don't have cash, then we got ATM machines," he added.

He pointed out that the pastor owned expensive cars and houses while the community near the church remained in poverty.

One bishop at the church offered to hear Zeek out and said that Jackson would be willing to talk to him. Members of the church came to Jackson's defense and pointed out that he is actually helping people in the community.

One pastor claimed that the bishop had given away cars and homes. The claim was supported by another church member.

"He should talk to people that he hired, ex-cons people that been in prison," said the church member. "He has done so much for this community. There are homes he has bought and given to people," the member continued.

Another member named Juanita Kinney said that the pastor immediately told her to look for an apartment when he found out that she did not have a place to live. Kinney said she now has her own place because of the pastor and his wife.
