Michele Bachmann to advise Trump on evangelical issues

The board will “provide advisory support to Mr. Trump on those issues important to Evangelicals and other people of the faith in America,” the campaign said in a statement.

“The executive board members will convene on a regular basis,” the statement said. 

The campaign added that certain members of the board were “solely responsible” for Trump’s private meeting with Christian leaders in New York City on Tuesday, but did not clarify which members those were. 

Bachmann, who mounted a presidential run in 2012, has yet to endorse a candidate in the 2016 election.
