Clip: 06/16/2020 | 17m 50s | Video has closed captioning.

White evangelical Christians are a key support group for President Trump. Rev. Robert Schenck is a clergyman from this very group. His rhetoric against abortion clinics helped motivate the 1998 murder of Dr. Barnett Slepian, an OB/GYN in Buffalo, NY. Since then, Rev. Schenck's soul-searching has led him to a new ideology. He discusses the importance of embracing empathy in these times.
