The Wall Street Journal reported that news Wednesday, citing public relations executive Sheila Withum, who said she received an invitation to the gathering, composed of “selected Christian leaders and ministry professionals.”

Withum reportedly revealed that the private gathering was scheduled to take place on Sept. 28 at the Trump Tower in New York City. She described the gathering as “a small group meeting, maximum 30 people,” according to the Wall Street Journal. …

The Trump organization’s executive vice president, Michael Cohen, described the independently organized meeting as a “prayer service” featuring “a significant number of pastors from across the country.” Cohen “said ‘the evangelical community,’ led by Paula White, a Florida evangelical preacher with a daily television show on The Word Network, was arranging the session,” the Wall Street Journal reported.
