A Sacramento pastor is facing backlash after praising President Donald Trump at a meeting at the White House.
Pastor Phillip Goudeaux of the Calvary Christian Center told the president he has “given us new hope.”
Some of the pastor’s followers say he’s damaged his congregation and the black community with his with his White House visit and his words.
Goudeaux is well-known in the Sacramento community and acted as the spiritual advisor to the family of Stephon Clark after a deadly shooting at the hands of Sacramento Police.
Goodeaux was one of more than a dozen black religious leaders on hand for a roundtable discussion on prison reform and criminal justice. One of the participants praised Trump as the most pro-black president.
