Common goal at NAACP dinner: Fight President Trump

After eight years with the first African American elected as president, people in the community have to come together to make sure progress isn't halted and the best cure for complacency in todays electorate is President Donald Trump, said the Rev. Wendell Anthony, president of the NAACPs Detroit chapter.

Speaking to reporters before the NAACPs 62nd annual Fight for Freedom dinner, Anthony said the actions taken in the first days of the Trump presidency -- including trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act, appointing Jeff Sessions as attorney general and appointing conservative Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court -- should be sufficient to spur opposition, activism and challenges by all justice-seeking Americans.

If that aint incentive enough for you, Im not sure what else we can do, he said. The best ambassador for change is Donald Trump.

It was a theme repeated again and again by speakers before the dinner, which was expected to draw a crowd of more than, 5,000, and is expected to be a theme from keynote speaker, U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Massachusetts.
