Theologian Stanley Hauerwas: ‘Trump wants you to be in his reality show’

US Theologian Stanley Hauerwas hopes that the Trump years will motivate Christians to be more Christian.

American theologian and ethicist Professor Stanley Hauerwas has hit out at Donald Trump and offered a stark challenge to the contemporary Church.
