Will evangelicals stay loyal to Donald Trump? | Anywhere but Washington



In 2016, white evangelicals made up a quarter of all US voters. And 81% of them voted for Donald Trump. Oliver Laughland and Tom Silverstone head to the pivotal battleground state of North Carolina to see if Trump’s religious base is showing signs of crumbling. They meet extreme evangelical pastors, traveling progressive preachers and the moral movement leader Rev William Barber who give their views on the battleground of abortion, lgbtq rights and the soul of the nation.

  1. My own political leaning aside, isn't preaching your political opinion to your congregation in direct defiance of the agreement a church has with the government to maintain their tax-exempt status?

  2. Asinine question by a leftist British ragsheet. Who would Evangelicals vote for if not Trump? The corrupt Biden? Go have a British tea, Guardian. Pity that some Brits would choose to read this supermarket tabloid.

  3. wow the way they willing to overlook DT character and behavior just so in their head to fit the narrative of what they believe is just crazy. I would think people would want their president to be well behaved, well mannered, i mean this person is supposed to represent the country but no one seems to care anymore as long as he is a republican they willing to throw all their support for the party and not the person and this is a disgrace
