Evangelical Pastors Meet With Trump at White House, Lay Hands on Him to Pray


A group of evangelical pastors reportedly met with President Donald Trump today at the White House.

According to a tweet, it appears that among the group of pastors were Jentezen Franklin, Greg Laurie, Sam Rodriguez and Paula White Cain. Rodriguez and Cain have served as spiritual advisers to Trump in various capacities during his presidency.

Pastor Jentezen Franklin said he and his fellow pastors "had a great day @WhiteHouse with faith leaders. We talked & prayed with President @realDonaldTrump in the Roosevelt Room. I'm thankful that we are given the opportunity to discuss important policy issues and always the President ask [sic] us to lay hands on him and pray."

Franklin later said that sex trafficking was one of the topics of discussion at the meeting:

"Sex trafficking is being attacked with the full support of the United States Gov! Thank you, @SecPompeo, @IvankaTrump, President @realDonaldTrump for raising this issue to an awareness greater than ever before! Honored to be in this meeting today @whitehouse."
