Giáo hội của Trump: Cách ông ấy truyền tải Cơ đốc giáo vào phong trào

kết thúc cuộc biểu tình bằng nghi lễ giống như nhà thờ và coi việc truy tố ông là sự đàn áp, cựu tổng thống yêu cầu và nhận được mức độ cống hiến mới từ đảng Cộng hòa

Long known for his improvised and volatile stage performances (biểu diễn sân khấu đầy biến động), former President Donald J. Trump now tends to finish his rallies on a solemn note (kết thúc cuộc biểu tình một cách trang trọng).

Soft, reflective music fills the venue as a hush falls over the crowd. Mr. Trump’s tone turns reverent and somber, prompting some supporters to bow their heads or close their eyes. Others raise open palms in the air or murmur as if in prayer.

In this moment, Mr. Trump’s audience is his congregation (giáo đoàn), and the former president their pastor as he delivers a roughly 15-minute finale that evokes an evangelical altar call, the emotional tradition that concludes some Christian services in which attendees come forward to commit to their savior.

Instead, the Trumpian flock is more likely to describe him as a modern version of Old Testament heroes like Cyrus or David, morally flawed figures handpicked by God to lead profound missions aimed at achieving overdue justice or resisting existential evil (đạt được công lý quá hạn hoặc chống lại cái ác hiện sinh).

The intensity of the most committed Trump backers has also factored into the former president’s campaign decisions, according to two people familiar with internal deliberations. His team’s ability to bank on voters who will cast a ballot with little additional prompting means that some of the cash that would otherwise be spent on turnout operations can be invested in field staff, television ads or other ways to help Mr. Trump.

Trump rallies have always been something of a cross between a rock concert and a tent revival. When Mr. Trump first started winding down his rallies with the ambient strains, many connected them to similar theme music from the QAnon conspiracy movement, but the campaign distanced itself from that notion.
