President-elect Donald Trump zealously courted American evangelicals during his campaign ― setting up private meetings, putting together an advisory committee composed of top leaders, and repeatedly playing into evangelicals’ fear that Christianity in America is growing weaker.
Lisa Sharon Harper, chief church engagement officer at the progressive Christian organization Sojourners, told HuffPost that the election showed her that racism still exists in American evangelical churches. 
“I woke up from a dream this morning and remembered we are living a nightmare,” Harper told HuffPost. “Our nation’s first African American president will be followed by a candidate backed and promoted by the Ku Klux Klan. What’s worse, white people who claim Evangelical faith (women and men) pushed him to victory.”
