Influential social justice advocate and pastor of Greenleaf Christian Church in Goldsboro, North Carolina, William J. Barber II, says his church is open to every 2020 presidential candidate — including President Donald Trump — for worship and they don’t need his permission to attend.

The invitation comes as Barber revealed Sunday that gay Democratic presidential candidate Mayor Pete Buttigieg, who's in a same-sex marriage, has accepted an invitation to worship at his church on Dec. 1 and plans to discuss issues related to poverty after the service.

“Presidential candidates often ask me, they say, ‘Could we come by the church?’ I said, 'Well, the church is open to everybody. You can come. You can always come and worship.' I wish Trump would come. I would love to preach with him sitting right there,” he said, pointing to the front of his church in a video clip he posted on Twitter.
