“A Robin Hood Taking Over the Empire”: Donald Trump’s Revival
Keywords:Religious Right, Donald Trump, Religion and Politics, Protestantism, Populism
Since the founding of the Northern colonies and the creation of the United States, conservative Christianity’s involvement in the political realm has followed cycles of activity and subsequent retreat into passivity. Donald Trump’s presidency, and the support he gathered from major religious right’s organizations as well as conservative Christian voters, represent the latest of such cycles of involvement and withdrawal. But if his defeat signaled the end of yet another participation cycle for the movement, Trump’s figure managed nonetheless to usher in the white Christian nationalist revival some his voters were longing for.
