The billionaire mogul emerged from the more than two-hour meeting saying it went 'very well'. He said some of the attendees had agreed to endorse him, but the group did not present a formal list of new supporters.

The meeting was held with the Coalition of African American Ministers, clergy from across the country connected to one another through the South Carolina-based Christian broadcaster, the NOW Television Network.

The group included a former contestant on Trump's reality TV show 'The Apprentice' and a New York pastor who has attracted national attention with anti-gay statements and harsh criticism of American leaders, including President Barack Obama and former President George W. Bush.

Jordynn Parks, daughter of network co-founder Pastor Mark Burns, said clergy members in attendance regularly appeared on the network. Trump and other attendees said there were about 100 participants.
