Predominantly black church in Charlotte endorses Donald Trump

- On Sunday, supporters at a Donald Trump rally inside a Charlotte church said they wanted to see a better economy, more people back to work, and less living on welfare. They believe Donald Trump can do that and they aren't afraid to switch party lines to support him.

Outside the Antioch Road to Glory Church on Sunday was plenty of support for Donald Trump. It was the same story inside.

"Donald trump will be the next United States of America," shouted one pastor.

It was one of calls from crowd inside the predominately black congregation for Trump to bring change to America.

"We don't want prison, we don't want foodstamps. We don't want welfare. We don't want kids sitting on the street shooting at people. We don't want it," said Thomas Rodgers Sr.

Which is why hundreds of Trump supporters packed the pews Sunday, hearing from familiar faces, and even the Trump family.

"It is incredibly tough, day after day, to go out and work your hardest. To have the best interest of our country at hand and to get bashed everyday by the media," said Lara Trump, Daughter-In-Law to Donald.

Listening in the crowd was Georgia Willis, the only Republican in her family. She switched from a Democrat while attending college.

"Basically doing research on several different parties, Independent party to Democratic party to now Republican," said Willis.

The change has created hostility from others for going against the grain of minority voters.

"Oh no! Why! Why him? Why not Dump Trump and I say well, because of history," said Willis.

A candidate Willis says is not afraid to speak his mind.

"What he says, he sticks to it," she said.

Going against the status quo is something supporters hope will bring change to minority communities.

"We hope our eyes will be open to do something different and move in a more positive direction that it will be better for all people. Regardless of who we are," said Thomas Rodgers Sr.

Sundays rally was livestreamed by the Trump campaign so those around the country could watch.
