Going into the meeting, Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council was candid:
"This is not the outcome I was looking for. I thought we had a wonderful field of candidates, many who come from our community, who are professing evangelical Christians, who have track records on the issues. And not just one or two [candidates]; there were several in this campaign. We are where we are, but we have to work through it ... to be faithful witnesses to the truth."
Two meetings convened with Trump: one in the morning and one in the afternoon. AFA president Tim Wildmon, president of the American Family Association, was among those who participated in both sessions. He described the afternoon session during an interview on American Family Radio.
"It was a big hall with a thousand people, but the questions were from about seven different people. They were questions I would have asked had I personally had the opportunity to. But they were asked by people like James Dobson, David Jeremiah, Sammy Rodriguez, Tony Perkins – [First Liberty attorney] Kelly Shackelford was one of the persons who asked questions. So there were some good, meaty questions asked of Mr. Trump today."
Wildmon elaborated on what he saw as Trump's weakness and strength.
