The Dallas Pastor Who Has Trump’s Ear 12

Robert Jeffress, senior pastor at First Baptist Dallas church, is one of President Trump’s most reliable supporters.

Michael J. Mooney joins host Krys Boyd to talk about what he learned about Jeffress from the months he spent talking with him, which Mooney writes about in the current issue of Texas Monthly.
