Top Evangelicals Send Invites for Trump Meeting

Evangelical leaders have sent out these invitations for a June 21 meeting with presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump in New York City.

The meeting, first reported by TIME, will bring Trump face-to-face with hundreds of social conservative activists during an all-day session. There will be no prepared speeches, organizers say. Instead, Trump will field questions from attendees in a casual, conversational format.

Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and Bill Dallas of United in Purpose have spearheaded the planning, and former presidential candidate Ben Carson, now a Trump supporter, will serve as part-conduit and part-emcee. The host committee of nearly 40 members is a who’s who of Christian conservative activists, including James Dobson, Ralph Reed and Pat Robertson.

Trump’s Helsinki Discord

Donald Trump is not, and never will be, the Moscow correspondent for The Nation magazine, and he shouldn’t sound like it.
