Trump: I Spoke To Blake Family’s Pastor; Jacob Blake’s Father: We Don’t Have One
President Trump said Monday that he has not spoken with the family of Jacob Blake but that he had “a great talk” with their family pastor, according to CNN.
“Well I spoke to the pastor, wonderful man, the family’s pastor, and I thought it would be better not to do anything where there were lawyers involved. They wanted me to speak, they wanted to have lawyers involved and I thought that was inappropriate so I didn’t do that. But I did speak with the pastor of the family.”
But Jacob Blake’s father told the network that the family doesn’t have a family pastor.
"We don't have a family pastor," Jacob Blake Sr., said, "I don't know who he talked to, I don't care who he talked to," he said.
CNN noted that “Blake, a Black man, was shot seven times by police in Kenosha, sparking demonstrations,” and that “Trump is set to visit Kenosha tomorrow.”
