American Piety & Terror In Congo (Trailer) | VICE on HBO

This week on VICE on HBO, we’re looking at Trump’s evangelical base in American and the crisis in the Congo.

White evangelicals comprise a third of all Republican voters and are among the GOP’s most organized voting blocs. But wide support for Donald Trump in 2016, against a backdrop of scandals, has brought heavy media scrutiny and now some faith leaders are striving to move evangelicalism away from political associations. Gianna Toboni travels to the Bible Belt to see how evangelicals are navigating today’s volatile political environment.

Then — Conflict in Eastern Congo has killed as many as six million people, more than any war since WWII. Yet this conflict remains among the most underreported crises in the world. Ben Anderson reports on the ADF (Allied Democratic Forces), one of the least known, but most violent groups in the world.

See it at 7:30 PM and 11 PM EDT on HBO.
