The court evangelicals were back in the court this week. According to a piece at the Christian Broadcasting Network, the court evangelicals were in Washington so Trump could “brief” them “on the “continuing, remarkable accomplishments of this administration–especially in areas important to evangelicals.”
Sounds like an effort by Trump to shore up his base in preparation for 2020. Everyone around the table in the picture above is a political pawn.
And like any good court evangelical, they all made sure that everyone knew they were there. Here are some of their tweets:

I just had the great privilege to join other faith leaders at the White House to pray with President Trump. No President has done more to defend religious liberty! He is a bulwark against socialist/left.#realDonaldTrump #PrayerWarriors #GodBlessAmerica #GodBlessPresidentTrump

We 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 us to lay hands on him and pray. pic.twitter.com/Jua6jouqgp

It is at this point that I might copy a tweet from Pastor Greg Laurie, but he blocked me.

By the way, did I mention that Eerdmans will publish the paperback version of Believe Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump in January 2020? I have an entire chapter on the court evangelicals.
