Donald Trump is like a cult leader, says religious studies scholar | The Independent

Donald Trump is akin to a cult leader and his supporters are reminiscent of disciples of a sect, according to a religious studies scholar.

“Trump has harnessed the kind of emotional intensity from his base that is more typical of a religious revival meeting than a political rally, complete with ritualized communal chants (‘Lock her up!’),” the academic said in an Op-Ed for the LA Times.
