“Jacob Blake’s father said Monday that the family does not have a pastor after President Trump said during his press briefing that he had spoken with the family’s pastor.

The president announced that he would not be meeting with members of Blake’s family during his Tuesday visit to Kenosha, Wis., after speaking with the family’s pastor because the family wanted to have “lawyers involved.”

“I spoke with the pastor, wonderful man, the family’s pastor,” Trump told reporters on Monday. “I thought it would be better not to do anything where there are lawyers involved.”

“But Blake’s father later told CNN he didn’t know who the president spoke with.

“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.”

Do you think Trump should have spoken with the family?

Trump also said he spoke with their family pastor, but Blake’s father says they do not have a family pastor. Why do you think Trump said this?
