A book talk by Professor John Fea, author of "Belive Me: The Evangelical Road to Donald Trump"

“Believe me” may be the most commonly used phrase in Donald Trump’s lexicon. Whether about building a wall or protecting a Christian heritage, the refrain has been constant. And to the surprise of many, a good 80% of white evangelicals have believed Trump—at least enough to help propel him into the White House. 

Historian John Fea  explains how we have arrived at this unprecedented moment in American politics. An evangelical Christian himself, Fea argues that the embrace of Donald Trump is the logical outcome of a long-standing evangelical approach to public life defined by the politics of fear, the pursuit of worldly power, and a nostalgic longing for an American past.
