A small group of prominent evangelical leaders met with President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, and several White House officials Thursday afternoon in Washington following the National Prayer Breakfast.
The group included Franklin Graham, California Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Christian Fellowship, Pastor Jack Graham of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas, Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Dallas, Maryland Bishop Harry Jackson of Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, and Pastor Paula White of New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida.
“She invited us to stop over,” Johnnie Moore, an evangelical public relations professional who plays a major role in leading evangelical engagement with the Trump administration, said of Ivanka in an interview with The Christian Post Friday.
“Like most of these meetings, it was an opportunity for the group to discuss what was on their minds. She also, at our request, talked a bit about some of the administration’s priorities of 2018 and some of the highlights in 2017. That was the point of the discussion.”
Moore, the former senior vice president of communications at Liberty University who now runs a public relations firm that handles press for a wide variety of evangelical figures and organizations, explained that the briefing lasted nearly two hours inside the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
The meeting was originally only supposed to last about one hour.
“In 2017, the administration really exceeded our expectations on what they were able to accomplish in a such a short period of time,” Moore explained. “We thought that we would be working on these issues for another four years.”
