Why White Evangelicals Voted For Trump
In 2016, more than 80 percent of white evangelical Christians voted for President Trump. Author Kristin Kobes Du Mez's new book, "Jesus and John Wayne: How White Evangelicals Corrupted a Faith and Fractured a Nation" attempts to understand why.
"Jesus and John Wayne" describes how what it means to be a Christian man manifested through past American presidents, but most notably, manifests in America's current president: Donald Trump.
On today's episode of River to River, host Ben Kieffer speaks with Du Mez about her new book, which explains how President Trump became the "fulfillment, rather than the betrayal" of evangelical values.
