Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump will be endorsed Monday by a group of 100 African-American pastors and religious leaders after a private meeting at Trump Tower in New York.

The session comes after Trump came under fire for saying earlier this week that a Black Lives Matter protester at an Alabama rally over the weekend might have deserved to be beaten up by supporters.

He also was attacked for a Twitter post that appeared to play down recent conflicts between African Americans and police, The New York Times reports.

The developer, however, has met with black pastors several times this year and also is seeking to shore up support among evangelical Christians, according to the Times.

"I was looking for some subtle hints of racism," Darrell Scott, senior pastor of the New Spirit Revival Center in Cleveland, told the Times. He said he had met Trump personally and was convinced that he was best suited for the White House. "I didn't see it at all."

Scott, a registered Democrat who voted for President Barack Obama, helped organize Monday's meeting, the Times reports. He has been helping to introduce Trump to Christian leaders from across the country.
