Mississippi black church torched and vandalized with ‘Vote Trump’ slogan

Federal, state and local investigators are swarming around a historically black church in Greenville, Miss., targeted by possible arsonists late Tuesday night who set fire to Hopewell M.B. Church. Although the structure is still standing Wednesday morning, it was clearly a blaze so intense it left black scorch marks at each window.

And something else: firefighters arriving on the scene at 11 p.m. Tuesday night found someone had left a message in black spray paint beneath the church windows: “Vote Trump.”

It’s not clear at this hour who did this or why. Investigators as well as the town’s mayor planned a news conference Wednesday morning, according to WLBT-TV.
