When President Donald Trump authorized the drone strike that killed the powerful Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, he wasnt just flexing Americas muscle in the Middle East.

He was also acting on the advice of a politically powerful group of evangelical Christians who believe the US and Israel are part of the Bibles plan to bring about the second coming of Jesus.

Watch the video above to learn more about how the Bible is influencing this politically powerful group of American Christians.
