Trump interview throws spotlight on Christian broadcaster

Staffers at the little-noticed Christian Broadcasting Network​ capitalized on their newfound access to the Trump administration to promote their 17-minute interview with the president. The interview drew 3.4 million video views plus “more than 700,000 views through President Trump’s social media share alone,” according to a network news release.

Few see Christianity as very important to be ‘truly American’

About the same number (31 percent) said it was “not at all important.”
