In exactly one month from now on June 21 in New York City, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump will be meeting with significant evangelical leaders to discuss what Trump will bring in terms of faith and moral values to his campaign for the November election.
“Our goal is to be able to have a conversation that could lead to a better understanding of what Donald Trump has to offer to the country,” said Family Research Council President Tony Perkins. Perkins worked with former presidential candidate and Trump VP search committee chairman Dr. Ben Carson to arrange the meeting. Around 500 conservative leaders from across the globe will be present at the event.
Interestingly, Trump will not be delivering a speech. He will be there to answer questions from the evangelical leaders. “Our goal is to be able to have a conversation that could lead to a better understanding of what Trump has to offer to the country,” he said. “If we don’t try, the outcome is not going to be good.”
Perkins and the leaders are hoping to get a better understanding of where Trump stands policies regarding religious liberty, pro-life issues and even possible vice presidential candidates.
Prominent evangelicals who will be attending are Southern Baptist Convention President Ronnie Floyd, James Dobson, Ralph Reed, Penny Nance, Bob McEwen, Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association, Kelly Shackleford of First Liberty, and mega-church pastors Jack Graham and Ed Young.
