Commander-in-chief makes remarks on Thursday
The president makes remarks this morning at the 2019 National Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C.
During the event, he’ll speak to a range of leaders from all over the world, including clergy, diplomats and lobbyists.
The annual event at the Washington Hilton especially attracts conservative evangelicals who are “jockeying to rub shoulders with Washington’s elite,” as The Washington Post put it.
Every president since Dwight D. Eisenhower has attended the event.
It draws several thousand people; this year’s event is co-chaired by Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) and Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.).
