The Trump Presidency As Religious Cult - Reza Aslan

Eighty-one percent of white evangelicals voted for Donald Trump in the previous election. That’s a record.

Ed Simon, Editor-at-Large for The Marginalia Review of Books writes:

"...If anything, it’s the particular fusion of fundamentalist Protestantism, predatory capitalism, and P.T. Barnum-style confidence man grift that makes Trumpism such a particularly American malignant faith. We should scarcely be shocked that he’s arrived, all the dark currents of our culture have predicted him from the beginning."
