Key witnesses defy White House orders and provide closed-door testimony to Congress.
The government is shut down over President Trump’s demand for a wall at the border – and it appears there’s no compromise in sight. Why is the president holding government hostage over this issue? One answer lies with white evangelical Christian voters, some of President Trump’s most ardent supporters.

Jones recently won the 2019 Grawemeyer Award in Religion for his 2016 book, “The End of White Christian America.”
