America has a large contingent of evangelical christian churches. They are evangelical to the extent that they like to tell other people how to believe and how to run their lives. They are not christian, nor are they churches, really, if you think of churches as places to worship and pray. They mostly serve the church officials, since they extort money from the followers relentlessly and churches pay no taxes.
Since these sorts of churches largely attract the guillable and uneducated, they are a lot of sheep to herd whichever way the pastor (!) chooses. This is usually the Republican party, which, like the Tories, exist largely to protect and expand the wealth of rich people, like evangelical preachers.This means they have a handy political rally every Sunday, without the restrictions real political meetings have.
This is trump's base. He lies to them, they believe it. The repubs, like the tories, consistently introduce policies that work against the common people, i.e., austerity measures, lack of healthcare, benefits, etc. And the trumpies don't realise it, they just accept what The Leader says.
Hopefully Trump Lite won't go so off the rails as his hero in WA DC did, but he and the tories are going to keep enriching themselves and their friends instead of improving the country.
