Trump Cabinet Has Bible Study Group

BBC reports that President Trump's Cabinet has a weekly Bible study group, led by former professional basketball player-turned-pastor, Ralph Drollinger.  While not all Cabinet members attend each week, the group has ten "sponsors". Members of the group include Vice-President Mike Pence, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Energy Secretary Rick Perry and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.  Some of the Cabinet members originally got to know Drollinger through his Capitol Ministries study groups in the House and Senate. According to BBC:
President Trump is not a member of Drollinger's group - but he is a Christian, and does get Drollinger's eight-page print-outs most weeks.
"He writes me back notes on my bible studies," says Drollinger.
"He's got this leaky Sharpie felt-tip pen that he writes all capital letters with. 'Way to go Ralph, really like this study, keep it up.' Stuff like that."
