Josh Harris: Evangelical support for Trump "incredibly damaging to the Gospel"

In an interview with Mike Allen for "Axios on HBO," former evangelical pastor Joshua Harris said the movement's identification with President Trump has been "incredibly damaging to the Gospel. And to the church."

That represents a lot of who you are."
