Black Pastor: Donald Trump Isn't Telling The Whole Truth About Closed-Door Meeting | ThinkProgress

. . .

But not everyone who was present at the closed-door gathering fully agreed with Trump’s characterization of the event. Namely, Bishop Victor Couzens, who told ThinkProgress that the meeting was smaller and more critical than the candidate described.
I personally said to him, he needs to apologize. He needs to repent.

“That’s not true,” Couzens said when told about Trump’s assertion that he wasn’t asked to change his rhetoric. “We spent a lot of time just discussing the overall tone of the campaign. I personally said to him, he needs to apologize. He needs to repent.”

Couzens said he thought the meeting was largely respectful, and that Trump had good intentions. “My immediate reaction was that he overall is very engaged,” he said. “All in all, I do think his intention would be to try to build bridges across minority communities.”

But Couzens also said he was disheartened that Trump did not seem receptive to repeated requests that he soften his brash rhetoric surrounding Mexican immigrants, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the disabled community. Indeed, Couzens said the conversation “began to break down” when Trump was asked to apologize for several inflammatory remarks.

“I told him, you should apologize and repent — we’re called to own up to our bad behavior. That’s when his staff interrupted and said, ‘Why should he, why this why that,'” Couzens said. “He let his people answer for him. He didn’t seem to mind that.”

Couzens added that he thought the purported size of the event was exaggerated.

“I’m pretty confident there weren’t 100 people there,” he said. “I would say maybe somewhere between 40 and 50.”

Trump, the little Hitler liar.

Quoting one guy out of 40-50 at the closed door meeting. An exit poll should have been held on Trump's performance but that was a closed door meeting but minutes should have been written down during the meeting. Were Robert's Rules of Order enforced during the closed door meeting?
We don't really know. However, I suspect money changed hands.....;)
