|Why Evangelicals Will Be Key to Keeping Trump in the White House|
President Donald Trump (Reuters)America has had some difficult periods in its history, and I lived through one of the worst. I came of age during the radical anti-Vietnam War era in the late 1960s. I remember the riots at the 1968 Democratic convention when radicals tried to take over the party.
