Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump met several television evangelists and other religious leaders in his Trump Tower office on Sept. 28 (video below).
According to CBN, some of the attendees included faith healer and TV evangelist Kenneth Copeland, and televangelist/megachurch pastor Paula White, whose extravagant lifestyles were reported on by Inside Edition in 2011 (video below).
Christian Pastor David Jeremiah was present for the prayer meeting. Jeremiah told the conservative Family Research Council in May 2012 that America "will no longer be America" if the presidential election in 2012 didn't go the right way, noted RightWingWatch.org.
Also present was Jan Crouch of the controversial Trinity Broadcasting Network , which has been sued by family members over an alleged cover-up of a rape and mismanagement of millions of dollars, reported the OC Register in 2013.
Copeland, White, and Rabbi Kirt Schneider prayed for Trump to have wisdom and knowledge.
Trump reportedly told the clergy that he would support Israel and defeat ISIS. The billionaire also spoke about the supposed attacks on Christianity in the U.S. and race relations, noted CBN.
“I think Donald Trump changed the opinions of the African-American pastors that were in the room," Pastor Darrell Scott told CBN. "They saw a side of him outside of the media depiction, and that they would give strong consideration in regards to supporting his candidacy."
