The Church and the far right
Dec 5, 2023

For the first time in decades, there are more autocracies than liberal democracies around the world. Fears about America are growing and if Donald Trump wins a second term in the White House, he pledges to install ideological allies in key positions. Central to Trump’s support is his Christian Evangelical base. The Atlantic writer Tim Alberta’s latest book, The Kingdom, the Power and the Glory, examines the nexus between the Church and far-right politics. He saw it up close as a Christian whose father was an Evangelical Minister. He joins Christiane from New York. 

Also on today's show: CNN Senior International Correspondent Ben Wedeman reports from Jerusalem on the humanitarian crisis in Gaza; Ronen Bergman, author, Rise and Kill First: The Secret History of Israel's Targeted Assassinations; New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof
