Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is arranging to meet with religious leaders on Sept. 28 in meeting that is not associated with his campaign. ABC News reports Pastor Darrell Scott, a supporter of Trump, is contacting pastors and religious leaders from across the country to invite them to take part in the meeting. 


Dr. Scott, pastor of the New Spirit Revival Center for 22 years said that he met Trump years ago and “immediately liked him.” 


“I liked his style, his bravado, his charisma and, for lack of a better word, his honesty,” Scott said. 


The meeting will include leaders from a wide variety of backgrounds and denominations. 


Scott said, “There will be Evangelical leaders, Pentecostal, there will be some Rabbis – it’s going to be a melting pot. Black, white and Hispanic representation as well.” 


At the same time, Trump took part in an interview on Wednesday (Aug. 26), in which he said that his favorite book was the Bible but refused to share his favorite verse. 


When Bloomberg Managing Editor Mark Halperin asked Trump to share his favorite Bible verse, Trump said, “Well, I wouldn’t want to get into it. Because that’s very personal. You know, when I talk about the Bible it’s very personal. So I don’t want to get into it.”


After Halperin pressed again, Trump responded, “No, I don’t want to do that.”


Another reporter then asked Trump if he prefers the Old or New Testament. 


Trump answered, “Probably equal. I think it’s just incredible, the whole Bible is incredible.”
