MSNBC host Joy Reid condemned “White Christians” who support former President Trump’s victory at the Iowa Caucuses, highlighting the strong support from this demographic and linking it to a sense of entitlement and Christian nationalism.

She emphasized that this ideology is deeply tied to religion and suggested that it poses a significant challenge for the Democratic party.

Reid’s remarks underscored the belief among some White evangelical Christians that they are the rightful owners of the country and that non-White, non-conservative Christians are seen as less legitimate Americans.

“They see themselves as the rightful inheritors of this country, and Trump has promised to give it back to them,” said Reid.

“All the things that we think about, about electability, about what are people gaming out, but none of that matters when you believe that God has given you this country, that it is yours, and that everyone who is not a White, conservative Christian is a fraudulent American, is a less real American. Then you don’t care about electability. You care about what God has given you,” she explained.

“It is religion. And I think what we have to actually confront – and this is what the Democrats are going to face – is this is now what White evangelicalism is. It is Christian nationalism. That’s the name of it, right?” said Reid.

Reid claimed “White evangelical Christians of a certain mindset” believe “that they own this country, that immigrants, that Brown people, that Hindus like Vivek Ramaswamy and his wife are illegitimate Americans. They are less legitimate Americans than they are.”

“They’re not trying to convince people and win people over through politics. What they’re saying is, ‘We own this country, and everyone will bow down to us,’” claimed the host.
