Pastor: Joy Reid should move to Haiti

Pastor Mark Burns filmed a video in which he said Joy Reid should consider moving to Haiti after he and the MSNBC host had a heated debate during his appearance Saturday morning on her show.

Burns appeared to have filmed the video in the car picking him up after the contentious interview. He also posted the video on Twitter.

“Just wanted to say to Joy, who I consider a friend, she’s always been very kind and I think fair to me, but obviously in the interview you just saw, if you watched Joy Reid, that she should just move to Haiti since she’s more concerned about Haitian immigrants than black Americans here in poverty,” Burns, a member of President Trump’s evangelical council, said. 

Reid immediately fired back on her show, saying she and Burns were not friends. 
“Sir, I always do try to be kind to the people who are on the show, but we’re not friends. You’re somebody that I am glad that you’re willing to come on and I do try to be fair to you and I’m glad that you can see that,” she said. 
She then cited the bible verse John 3:18 in response to Burn’s remarks. 
{mosads}” ‘Let us not love with word or with tongue but in deed and in truth’ and that is what I’m doing when I’m concerned about the people of the world,” she said. 
Things got heated between Burns and Reid when she asked him about Trump’s remarks that the United States should not accept immigrants from “shithole countries,” a reference to Haiti, El Salvador and African countries.
Noting the Trump administration’s decision to end Temporary Protected Status for certain immigrants from Haiti who came to the United States after the 2010 earthquake, Reid asked Burns how he, as a man of God, could justify sending immigrants back to their native countries. 
Burns cited the president’s “America First” policy, and said, “black people in America are suffering.”
After sparring with Reid, Burns said she was wasting his time, to which Reid said: “Oh, well then, if I’m wasting your time, then goodbye.”
Other members of Trump’s evangelical advisory board have also defended his remarks. Pastor Robert Jeffress said on Friday Trump was “right on target” when he made the remarks.
