And it's true, Trump is being driven on by Christian fundamentalists, most of whom won't ever leave flyover country and for whom the city of Jerusalem is just a distant fantasy.

That's because many of those who are muddle-headed enough to support Mr Trump are also what one might call Christian fundamentalists.

Voters have made a mistake to put such corrupt politicians in charge. We are lied to every day when flowery speeches express concern.
