We've kind of beaten this subject to death, but the Washington Post has an opinion article on the evangical support for Trump.
Washington Post, January 4, 2019: Evangelicals’ infallible new faith: The gospel of Trump
As the title of the article suggests, the evangelicals have developed an "infallible support for Trump". Nothing that members on this website didn't know already, but on New Year’s Day, "Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. defended his unwavering support of President Trump with a thoroughly confused reading of the Gospel".
"Speaking to The Post, the evangelical leader claimed that it was a distortion of Christ’s teachings to suggest that because He taught love and forgiveness, “the United States as a nation should be loving and forgiving.” According to Falwell’s creative theology, Christ “went out of his way to say that’s the earthly kingdom, I’m about the heavenly kingdom,” and loving your neighbor as yourself only applies to the latter."
"The man whose institutional mission includes being “a voice for the voiceless” then meditated on the uselessness of the poor — “A poor person never gave anyone a job. A poor person never gave anybody charity, not of any real volume. It’s just common sense to me.” He then suggested that it might be immoral for Christians not to support Trump."
Falwell went on to say that there was nothing that Trump could do to endanger his support from evangelical leaders. The Post concludes:
"That’s what you call faith. But it’s definitely not Christian."
