Explaining Donald Trump and “Evangelicals” to Australians

Just after the US election, I wrote a piece for a prominent Australian News Outlet called The Drum on Who are the Evangelicals Who Supported Trump? Basically trying to explain the different “types” of American evangelicals.

For what it’s worth, I think Trump has played the evangelicals. Donald Trump has no record of professing faith. Although he identifies as a religious person when it suits his audience, other times he has bragged about serial adultery, and says he’s never asked God for forgiveness. While his supporters in the religious right like to call Trump a “baby Christian,” there is no evidence of authentic Christian faith in his life.
