WELCOME TO THE CB CBN NEWS

INAUGURATION SPECIAL.

I'M AT THE CAPITOL.

CLOSE TO A MILLION

ATTENDEES ARE HERE AT THE

NATION'S CAPITOL, AND THAT

DOESN'T INCLUDE THE

HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

PROTESTORS HERE TO MARCH.

SECURITY TOPS

$100 MILLION.

AND FROM THE PROTESTS TO

THE DEMOCRATIC BOYCOTT,

THIS IS MAKING WAVES IN

TRUE TRUMP STYLE.

TO BREAK EVERYTHING DOWN,

WE HAVE TEAM COVERAGE WITH

JENNIFER WISHON, ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON, OUR CAPITOL

HILL CORRESPONDENT, AND

OUR SENIOR WASHINGTON

COURSCORRESPONDENT, PAUL

STRAND.

AND ALSO JOINING US ARE

CHIEF POLITICAL

CORRESPONDENT DAVID BRODY

AND JENNA BROWDER.

JENNA, LET'S START WITH

YOU.

YOU FOLLOWED

PRESIDENT-ELECT TRUMP

THROUGHOUT HIS CAMPAIGN.

I'M CURIOUS TO HEAR WHAT

YOU'RE HEARING FROM

CHRISTIANS ABOUT TRUMP'S

USHERING IN THE RESURGENCE

OF THE CONSERVATIVE RIGHT.

Reporter: THEY HAVE

BEEN SENT OUT TO WANDER IN

THE WILDERNESS, AND NOW

THEY FEEL A SENSE OF

DELIVERANCE.

FOR CONSERVATIVES, THIS IS

A GIDDY DAY IN WASHINGTON.

THEY ARE ENERGIZED.

THEY FEEL LIKE THEY HAVE A

REAL ADVOCATE IN THE WHITE

HOUSE WITH PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

IT BEGINS, RIGHT AWAY,

WITH THE APPOINTMENT OF A

PRO-LIFE JUSTICE TO THE

SUPREME COURT.

IT CONTINUES WITH A BAN ON

LATE-TERM ABORTIONS, AND

ALSO THEY'RE JUST EXCITED

TO HAVE SOMEONE IN THE

WHITE HOUSE WHO THEY

BELIEVE WILL STAND UP FOR

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY HERE IN

AMERICA.

JENNIFER, I KNOW YOU

JUST INTERVIEWED

DR. RICHARD LAND, A MEMBER

OF THE PRESIDENT'S

EVANGELICAL COUNCIL, AND

I'M CURIOUS ABOUT HIS

THOUGHTS OF WHAT A TRUMP

PRESIDENCY MIGHT LOOK LIKE

IN PARTICULAR FOR

CHRISTIANS.

Reporter: DR. RAND

TELLS ME PRESIDENT TRUMP

IS FASCINATED BY

CHRISTIANS.

HE MEETS REGULARLY WITH

HIS EVANGELICAL ADVISORY

BOARD.

AND THE ADVISORY BOARD

WILL CONTINUE ADVISING HIM

HERE AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

IT IS REALLY REMARKABLE

BECAUSE THIS

ADMINISTRATION IS SHAPING

UP TO BE THE MOST

CONSERVATIVE SINCE CALVIN

COOLAGE MOVED INTO THE

WHITE HOUSE SOME 100 YEARS

AGO.

INTERESTINGLY, HIS

TRANSITION TEAM REALLY

SOLICITED THE ADVICE OF

HIS EVANGELICAL ADVISORY

COUNCIL WHEN IT CAME TO

FILLING THESE POSITIONS.

I THINK THEY UNDERSTAND

AT A VERY FUNDAMENTAL

LEVEL THAT PERSONNEL IS

POLICY, AND THAT THEY WANT

TO HAVE PEOPLE WHO ARE

VERY COMMITTED TO THE KIND

OF RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

ISSUES AND THE KIND OF

PRO-LIFE ISSUES THAT WE

ARE COMMITTED TO AT EVERY

LEVEL OF THE

ADMINISTRATION.

Reporter: EVERY LEVEL

OF THE ADMINISTRATION.

DR. LAND SAYS HE IS

PINCHING HIMSELF OVER THE

WORK OF TRUMP'S TRANSITION

TEAM.

DAVID BRODY AND JENNA

BROWDER HAVE ALSO COVERED

DONALD TRUMP'S ROAD TO THE

WHITE HOUSE.

DAVID, YOU HAVE SPOKEN

SPECIFICALLY TO THE

PRESIDENT ABOUT HIS FAITH.

WHAT CAN YOU TELL US?

David: WELL, I HAVE,

JENNIFER, MANY TIMES.

AND JENNA AND I HAVE BOTH

GOTTEN TO KNOW HIM A

LITTLE BIT HERE.

THE REALITY IS WHEN HE

CAME IN IN 2011, MY FIRST

INTERVIEW -- I'LL NEVER

FORGET IT -- HE WALKS IN

WITH A PICTURE OF HIM

BEING CONFIRMED WHEN HE

WAS A YOUNG BOY.

HE GOES, DAVID, LOOK,

LOOK, LOOK RIGHT HERE,

LIKE THIS WAS PROOF HE WAS

A CHRISTIAN.

WHICH I THOUGHT IT WAS

PRETTY FUNNY.

AND I'LL NEVER FORGET THAT

FIRST INTERVIEW IN 2011

WHERE HE SAID I WOULD

NEVER DO ANYTHING NEGATIVE

TO A BIBLE, BECAUSE

EVERYBODY SENDS HIM

BIBLES.

AND HE SAYS, I STORE THEM

IN A VERY NICE PLACE.

HE HAS A REAL SENSE OF

RESPECT FOR EVANGELICALS

AND CHRISTIANS AS WELL.

I KNOW YOU'VE TALKED TO

HIM AS WELL, ESPECIALLY

ABOUT IMPORTANT POLICY

ISSUES.

ABSOLUTELY, THE JOHNSON

AMENDMENT PUT IN PLACE IN

1954 BY LINDEN JOHNSON,

AND DONALD TRUMP WANTS TO

REPEAL THIS.

THAT WAS A BIG PROMISE HE

MADE ON THE CAMPAIGN

TRAIL, TO GIVE PASTORS AND

CHURCHES MORE FREEDOM TO

SPEAK PUBLICLY ABOUT

POLITICS.

SPEAKING WITH NEWT

GINGRICH A COUPLE OF DAYS

AGO, HE THINKS THAT THE

BALL IS GOING TO GET

ROLLING ON THIS SOME TIME

THIS SPRING, SO WE'LL SEE

ABOUT THAT.

YOU KNOW, DAVID, DONALD

TRUMP, AS JENNIFER HAS

SAID, SURROUNDED HIMSELF

WITH A LOT OF SPIRITUAL

PEOPLE.

WHEN WE LOOK INTO THE

FUTURE, WE SAY THANK YOU,

GOD.

Reporter: POWERFUL

WORDS FROM POPULAR PASTOR

PAULA WHITE.

GOD IN ONE MOMENT, ONE

WINK OF HIS EYE, HE CAN

CHANGE EVERYTHING.

Reporter: AND WORDS

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS HEARD

BEFORE.

ABOUT 15 YEARS AGO, I

RECEIVED THIS PHONE CALL

THAT SAID HE WAS WATCHING

THE SERMONS.

Reporter: SHE SAYS HE

COULD RECALL HER SERMONS

VERBATIM.

HERE SHE IS TALKING ABOUT

HER SPECIAL ROLE IN THE

SWEARING-IN CEREMONY MOAN.

David: DID YOU EVER

THINK YOU WOULD BE GIVING

A PRAYER AT A SWARMING IN

CEREMONY?

THAT IS SO HUMBLE,

CONSIDERING THE HUMBLE

BEGINNINGS I BECAME FROM,

DID I THINK I WOULD BE THE

FIRST FEMALE CLERGY TO DO

THE SWEARING IN?

ABSOLUTELY NO.

BUT WHEN I GOT SAVED AT 18

YEARS OLD, THE LORD SPOKE

TO ME, AND I DID NOTHING

FOR TWO YEARS BUT

CONSECRATE HIS LIFE.

AND HE SAID YOU WILL SEE

NATIONS SHAKE THROUGH MY

GLORY.

I BELIEVE AS A YIELDED

PERSON, THERE IS NOT

ANYTHING IMPOSSIBLE FOR

GOD TO DO IN OUR LIVES.

Reporter: INCLUDING

PRESIDENT TRUMP, WHO'S

CRITICS QUESTION THE

SINCERITY OF HIS FAITH.

WHITE IS QUICK TO DEFEND

HIM.

I SAY, MAYBE NOT

GOD-SENT, BUT GOD-USED.

HE IS A BELIEVER.

AS A BELIEVER, I BELIEVE

THERE IS PROVIDENCE ON OUR

LIFE.

IT COULDN'T BE

COINCIDENTAL OR

HAPPENSTANCE BECAUSE OUR

GOD IS TOO CALCULATED AND

CONCISE.

Reporter: WITH

CRITICS OF HER OWN, SHE

RELEASED THIS STATEMENT IN

RESPONSE: NEITHER MY

FAITH, MY LIFE, NOR MY

THEOLOGY ORIGINATES OR IS

INSPIRED BY ANY OTHER BOOK

THAN THE BIBLE, WHICH I

BELIEVE IS GOD'S TRUTH."

WHITE SAYS HER FOCUS NOW

IS NOT ON HER.

David: THERE ARE SO

MANY EVANGELICALS WHO WANT

TO KNOW HOW THEY SHOULD BE

PRAYING FOR HIM AND THIS

ADMINISTRATION OVER THE

NEXT FOUR YEARS.

WHAT IS YOUR ADVICE AND

COUNCIL TO THEM?

THE ONE THING I ALWAYS

PRAY FOR PEOPLE IS THAT

THEY BE BOUND TO THE WILL

OF GOD, AND THAT HE WOULD

HAVE THE WISDOM OF GOD.

I ALWAYS STAND ON THE WORD

OF GOD WHEN WE PRAY.

Reporter: AND THE

PRESIDENT WILL BE STANDING

WITH OTHER FAITH LEADERS

BEHIND HIM.

FATHER, WE JUST BLESS

MR. TRUMP RIGHT NOW AND

HIS ENTIRE FAMILY.

David: JENNA, WHEN

IT COMES TO ADVICE ON

FAITH, DONALD TRUMP HAS

BLOOPLENTY OF FOLKS AROUND

HIM.

THERE IS THIS PASTOR.

DONALD TRUMP CARES

ABOUT AND LOVES

EVANGELICAL CHRISTIANS.

David: AND PASTOR

MARK BURNS.

TRUMP IS PART OF US.

HE IS PART OF YOU.

HE IS PART OF ME.

WE WILL BE UNITED.

David: THE INCOMING

PRESIDENT IS ALSO CLOSE

WITH DARYL SCOTT OF

CLEVELAND'S NEW SPIRIT

REVIVAL CENTER.

HE HAS AN OLD-FASHIONED

RESPECT FOR CLERGY.

YOU DON'T SEE THAT

ANYMORE.

David: WHILE THERE

ARE PLENTY OF OTHERS,

TRUMP SHARES A SPECIAL

RELATIONSHIP WITH JERRY

FALWELL, JR., ONE OF THE

FIRST NOTABLE EVANGELICALS

TO ENDORSE HIM.

HE TELLS US HE IS NOT

LOOKING FOR MIRACLES FROM

THE NEW PRESIDENT.

HE IS JUST BEING

PRACTICAL.

WHEN I'M IN A FOX HOLE,

THE GUY I WANT BESIDE ME

SHOOTING, I DON'T CARE IF

HE IS ONE OF US OR NOT.

IF HE IS A CHRISTIAN,

THAT'S GREAT.

BUT IF NOT, I WANT THE

BEST SHOT IN THE FOX HOLE

WITH ME.

David: WITH THESE

CONFIDANTS, TRUMP WILL NOT

HAVE TO LOOK FAR FOR

SPIRITUAL GUIDANCE THAT HE

WILL CERTAINLY NEED AT

COMMANDER IN CHIEF.

> AND HE IS GOING TO

NEED SOME PUBLIC POLICY

GUIDANCE AS WELL, AND THAT

COMES FROM THE INFLUENCERS

IN THE WEST WING.

> THE WHITE HOUSE IS

ABOUT TO GET A FACE LIFT.

IT IS NOT JUST DONALD

TRUMP MOVING IN.

MEET THE INFLUENCERS.

VICE PRESIDENT MIKE PENCE,

SENIOR ADVISOR KELLYANNE

CONWAY, STEVE BANNON, AND

CHIEF-OF-STAFF, REINCE

PRIEBUS.

TRUMP WILL LOOK TO ALL

FOUR TO IMPLEMENT THIS

PLAN.

IT IS MY HONOR TO

INTRODUCE TO ALL OF YOU MY

FRIEND AND THE

PRESIDENT-ELECT OF THE

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,

DONALD TRUMP.

David: MIKE PENCE

WILL PLAY THE ROLE OF

MIDDLE MAN.

HIS RELATIONSHIPS ON

CAPITOL HILL WILL ALLOW

HIM TO BE THE PIPELINE FOR

MOVING KEY LEGISLATION

DOWN PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE

TO THE PRESIDENT'S DESK.

RHYS PREI REINCE PRIEBUS IS

REALLY A STAR.

HE IS THE HARDEST WORKING

GUY.

David: REINCE

PRIEBUS WILL HAVE THE JOB

OF TELLING DONALD TRUMP

NO.

HE IS A REALIST.

TRUMP LISTENING IS ANOTHER

MATTER.

KELLYANNE CONWAY IS THE

TRUMP WHISPER, COACHING

HIM ON HOW TO HANDLE

SITUATIONS IN PUBLIC, AND

HOW TO SPEAK TO THE

CONSERVATIVE FAITH TO

ADVANCE HIS AGENDA.

AND THEN THERE IS STEVE

BANNON, HE IS THE OUTSIDE

THE BOX, ANTI-PRIME

MINISTER STEPHEANTI-ESTABLISHMENT

THINKER.

ENTER D.C.'S LATEST POWER

COUPLE, WHO WE LOOK TO

CALL "JAVANKA."

HIS DAUGHTER AND HER

HUSBAND.

AS FOR FIRST DAUGHTER

IVANKA, SHE HAS THE EAR OF

HER FATHER AT ALL TIME.

HE RESPECTS HER ESPECIALLY

ON THE SO-CALLED WOMEN'S

ISSUES.

> AND, OF COURSE, WE'LL

SEE HOW HER FATHER

RESPONDS BECAUSE SHE CAN

ALWAYS CHECK TWITTER.

I HEAR HE TWEETS.

Reporter:

OCCASIONALLY, FROM TIME TO

TIME.

JOHN, WE WANT TO SEND IT

BACK TO YOU.

John: PRESIDENT TRUMP

TAKES OFFICE WITHOUT MOST

OF HIS CABINET IN PLACE.

TRUMP'S PICK WOULD TAKE

THE JOB AT A TIME OF

GLOBAL UNREST AROUND THE

WORLD, AND MANY SAY REX

TILLERSON IS THE RIGHT

CHOICE, DESPITE HIS LACK

OF PRIOR GOVERNMENT

EXPERIENCE.

Reporter: FROM THE

WAR ON TERROR, TO

REFUGEES, TO NUCLEAR SABER

RATTLING IN NORTH KOREA

AND IRAN, AN INTERNATIONAL

STAGE AWAITS DONALD TRUMP,

AND THE MAN HE WANTS IN

THE MIDDLE OF IT IS FORMER

OIL EXECUTIVE REX

TILLERSON.

AMERICAN LEADERSHIP

MUST NOT ONLY BE RENEWED,

IT MUST BE ASSERTED.

Reporter: TRUMP

DESCRIBES HIS CHOICE AS

ONE OF THE TRULY GREAT

BUSINESS LEADERS OF THE

WORLD.

CRITICS POUND ON

TILLERSON'S LACK OF

DIPLOMATIC EXPERIENCE,

WHILE SUPPORTERS POINT TO

INTERNATIONAL TIES HE'S

GAINED FROM 40 YEARS WITH

EXXON-MOBIL, WITH BUSINESS

IN MORE THAN 50 COUNTRIES.

STEVE COAL WROTE A BOOK

ABOUT EXXON.

AND OTHERS MADE A

COMMENT TO ME ABOUT THAT

THERE IS AN ALLUSION OR

REFERENCE TO EXXON-MOBIL

HAVING ITS OWN STATE

DEPARTMENT.

Reporter: OVER THE

YEARS, THERE HAVE BEEN

CALLS TO OVERHAUL THE

STATE DEPARTMENT.

AND SOME SAY THIS MAY BE

WHAT IS NEEDED TO DO THE

JOB.

IS VLADIMIR PUTIN A WAR

CRIMINAL?

I WOULD NOT USE THAT

TERM.

Reporter: TILLERSON'S

BIGGEST OBSTACLE REMAINS

HIS TIES TO RUSSIA AND

PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN

WITH SOME LAWMAKERS

QUESTIONING IF IT IS TOO

COZY.

HE DOESN'T HAVE A GOOD

RELATIONSHIP WITH PUTIN

LIKE THEY'RE FRIENDS AT

THE ROTARY CLUB.

HE HAD A GOOD

BUSINESS-LIKE RELATIONSHIP

BECAUSE THEY WANTED TO DO

BUSINESS IN RUSSIA, AND HE

WAS ABLE TO WORK WITH THEM

IN A PRACTICAL, HARD-NOSED

WAY.

Reporter: HE BROKE

WITH TRUMP SAYING THAT THE

U.S. SHOULD BE CLEAR-EYED

ABOUT ITS RELATIONSHIP

WITH RUSSIA, WHILE LAYING

BLAME FOR THE FAILED

FOREIGN POLICY OF THE

OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

RUSSIA MUST KNOW THAT

WE WILL BE ACCOUNTABLE TO

OUR COMMITMENTS AND THOSE

OF OUR ALLIES', AND RUSSIA

MUST BE HELD TO ACCOUNT.

Reporter: AND

TILLERSON MADE CLEAR ISIS

WOULD BE A TOP PRIORITY,

BY USING A PHRASE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS

AVOID TO THIS DAY.

WE NEED TO BE HONEST

ABOUT RADICAL ISLAM AND

DEFEATING ISIS.

Reporter: SOME SAY HE

IS MOTIVATED BY SENSE OF

HONESTY, DUTY, AND

COUNTRY, QUALITIES HE

LEARNED AS AN EAGLE SCOUT

AND ON DISPLAY.

ANOTHER ONE OF TRUMP'S

CABINET PICKS IS FORMER

KANSAS CONGRESSMAN MIKE

POMPEO.

AS GARY LANE REPORTS, IF

CONFIRMED AS THE NEXT HEAD

OF THE C.I.A., HE MAY HELP

TO SMOOTH OVER TRUMP'S

ROCKY RELATIONS WITH THE

U.S. INTELLIGENCE

COMMUNITY.

Reporter: IF

CONFIRMED, ONE OF MIKE

POMPEO'S FIRST TASKS WOULD

BE CALMING THE STORM OVER

RUSSIAN HACKING OF THE

2016 PRESIDENTIAL

CAMPAIGN.

THIS IS VERY REAL AND

IT IS GROWING.

IT WAS AN AGGRESSIVE

ACTION TAKEN BY THE SENIOR

LEADERSHIP INSIDE OF

RUSSIA.

AND AMERICA HAS AN

OBLIGATION TO PROTECT THAT

INFORMATION.

Reporter: FRIENDS AND

SUPPORTERS SAY POMPEO WILL

BRING INTELLIGENCE TO THE

CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE

AGENCY.

HE GRADUATED FIRST IN HIS

CLALASS AT WEST POINT AND

ATTENDED HARVARD.

HE HAS SERVED IN THE HOUSE

OF REPRESENTATIVES SINCE

2011.

SO HOW DOES HE MAKE THE

C.I.A. MORE EFFECTIVE?

HE NEEDS TO PLUG THE

LEAKS.

THESE PEOPLE OF THE

C.I.A. AND THE NATIONAL

SECURITY COUNCIL, WHO ARE

CONSTANTLY CALLING THE

"NEW YORK TIMES" TO LEAK

INFORMATION, THEY HAVE TO

GO.

WE HAVE TO HAVE OBJECTIVE,

NON-POLITICAL ANALYSIS,

AND THERE HAS TO BE A

HOUSE CLEANING TO GET THAT

DONE.

Reporter: HE SAYS

BUYEBUREAUCRATS OFTEN FORCE

CONSENSUS.

THAT CAN LEAD TO A

CONSENSUS THAT FITS A

POLITICAL NARRATIVE.

LAST FALL HE TOLD CBN NEWS

THAT THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION USED THAT

APPROACH.

THAT IS DANGEROUS.

BECAUSE WE WON'T APPLY THE

RIGHT RESOURCES TO PUSH

BACK AGAINST THE ENEMY.

THEY WERE SAYING WE WERE

MORE SUCCESSFUL AGAINST

ISIS THAN THE FACTS ON THE

GROUND JUSTIFIED.

SO YOU MISALLOCATED

RESOURCES AND YOU PUT

LIVES AT RISK.

Reporter: HE SAYS

POMPEO, ALONG WITH MICHAEL

FLYNN AND COATES, CAN PUT

TOGETHER A PERFECT TEAM.

IT WILL PRODUCE THE

INFORMATION MR. TRUMP

NEEDS TO PROTECT OUR

COUNTRY AND TO HELP

INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES WIN

MR. TRUMP'S CONFIDENCE.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

John: IT IS NO SECRET

THAT TRUMP HAS NO PROBLEMS

BREAKING WITH TRADITION.

AND HE SAYS HE IS

INTENTIONALLY SHAKING

THINGS UP FOR THIS

INAUGURATION.

HERE IS A LOOK AT OTHER

INAUGURATION FIRSTS.

Reporter: THE FIRST

INAUGURATION TOOK PLACE IN

NEW YORK AT FEDERAL HALL,

WITH GEORGE WASHINGTON.

THAT'S WHERE THE CAPITOL

WAS LOCATED IN THE EARLY

DAYS OF OUR REPUBLIC.

GEORGE WASHINGTON GAVE A

SPEECH, A VERY SHORT

SPEECH BY TODAY'S

COMPARISONS.

*

Reporter: THEY

CRITICIZED MANY CHANGES.

HERBERT WHOEVER WAS HIS

PREDECESSOR.

WHAT I REMEMBER ABOUT

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

INAUGURATION WAS THE

ENERGY IN WASHINGTON AND

AROUND THE COUNTRY.

SO MANY PEOPLE WERE

EXCITED, NOT JUST BECAUSE

HE WAS A POPULAR

CANDIDATE, BUT BECAUSE OF

THE HISTORIC NATURE OF HIS

PRESIDENCY.

*

John: WELCOME BACK.

WELL, A NEW PRESIDENT, ANY

PRESIDENT, FOR THAT

MATTER, CAN'T GO VERY FAR

WITHOUT WORKING WITH

CONGRESS.

JOINING US NOW IS CAPITOL

HILL CORRESPONDENT ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON WITH A LOOK AT

SOME OF THE TOP PRIORITIES

ON CAPITOL HILL.

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT?

Reporter: NOW THAT

RUSSIANS HAVE CONTROL OF

ALL THREE BRANCHES, THERE

IS A LOT THEY WANT TO GET

DONE.

TOP OF THE PRIORITY LIST

IS REPEALING AND REPLACING

OBAMACARE.

AND THEY ALSO WANT TO

TACKLE TAX REFORM,

IMMIGRATION REFORM,

DEFUNDING PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, AND BOOSTING

THE MILITARY.

AND THEY HAVE VERY HIGH

HOPES FOR THE TRUMP ERA.

ANOTHER BIG ISSUE THEY'RE

GOING TO GO AFTER IS

REPEALING THE JOHNSON

AMENDMENT.

THIS WAS ONE OF

PRESIDENT-ELECT DONALD

TRUMP'S BIGGEST PROMISES

TO EVANGELICALS DURING THE

CAMPAIGN.

IT BASICALLY TURNS THE

I.R.S. INTO THE SIEGE

POLICE, AND IF PASTORS SO

MUCH MENTION A POLITICAL

NAME FROM THE PULPIT, THEY

COULD LOSE THEIR

TAX-EXEMPT STATUS.

I'VE FOUND ONE CONGRESSMAN

WHO HAS BEEN FIGHTING THIS

FOR OVER 15 YEARS.

* GOD BLESS THE U.S.A.

Reporter: DONALD

TRUMP MADE MANY PROMISES

TO EVANGELICALS DURING HIS

CAMPAIGN.

ONE OF THE EARLY

THINGS, ONE OF THE

ABSOLUTE FIRST THINGS I'M

GOING TO DO, IS WORK ON

TOTALLY KNOCKING OUT THE

JOHNSON AMENDMENT.

Reporter: NOW

LAWMAKERS AND LOBBYISTS

WANT HIM TO TAKE ACTION.

2017 IS GOING TO BE THE

YEAR IT GOES.

Reporter: CONGRESSMAN

WALTER JONES HAS ALREADY

INTRODUCED A BILL THIS

TERM CALLING FOR THE

AMENDMENT'S REPEAL.

IT IS A MOVE TAKEN BY

JONES EACH YEAR SINCE

2001, WHEN HE FIRST

NOTICED THE I.R.S.

MONITORING PEOPLE OF FAITH

DURING THE 2000 ELECTION.

IT IS KIND OF LIKE BIG

BROTHER LISTENING TO WHAT

THE MINISTER OR PRIEST OR

RABBI MIGHT BE SAYING IN

THIS SITUATION.

Reporter: SENATOR

JOHNSON INTRODUCED THE

AMENDMENT IN 1954, AN

ELECTION YEAR, WHEN TWO

TEXAS NON-PROFITS

SUPPORTED HIS PRIMARY

OPPONENT.

HE PROPOSED THE LAW THAT

DENIES TAX-EXEMPT STATUS

TO ANY 501 C-3.

IT WAS A TOTAL THE

SPITEFUL AMENDMENT PASSED

BY LINDEN JOHNSON IN A

VERY DESTRUCTIVE WAY.

I THINK IT WEAKENS THE

INFLUENCE OF RELIGION IN

AMERICA.

I THINK AMERICA IS A MUCH

BETTER PLACE WHEN WE ARE

REMINDED THAT GOD IS

CENTRAL TO WHAT WE'RE

DOING.

Reporter: SUPPORTERS

SAY THE AMENDMENT PREVENTS

CHURCHES FROM BECOMING

SUPER PACKS, BUT CRITICS

LIKE JAY SEKULOW CALL IT A

THREAT TO FREEDOM OF

SPEECH.

THE JOHNSON AMENDMENT

BASICALLY WAS A MUZZLE ON

THE FIRST AMENDMENT RIGHTS

OF CHURCHES.

Reporter: SECULO

ARGUED THAT THE PURPOSE

WAS TO COLLECT REVENUE FOR

THE TREASURY, BUT THIS

AMENDMENT TURNED IT INTO

THE FREE SPEECH POLICE.

FORMER SPEAKER OF THE

HOUSE, NEWT GINGRICH, SAYS

PEOPLE WHO WOULD LIKE TO

SEE THE AMENDMENT GO NEED

TO TAKE ACTION.

EVERYBODY WHO IS

WATCHING US SHOULD WRITE

TO THEIR CONGRESSMEN AND

SENATORS TO REPEAL THE

JOHNSON AMENDMENT.

Reporter: THEY HOPE

THEY WILL CONVINCE THE

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION TO

RETURN TRUE FREEDOM OF

SPEECH TO CHURCHES AND

OTHER NON-PROFITS.

BACK TO YOU, JOHN.

John: THANKS, ABBEY.

WE KNOW YOU HAVE YOUR WORK

CUT OUT FOR YOU.

PAUL STRAND JOINS ME NOW.

WE TALKED A LITTLE ABOUT

TRUMP'S CABINET SPEAKS.

ONE STANDS OUT, ALABAMA

SENATOR JEFF SESSIONS.

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT AS FAR

AS HIS CONFIRMATION

BATTLE.

HE

IS ONE OF THE MORE

CONTROVERSIAL PICKS.

HE IS THE FIRST SENATOR TO

BACK DONALD TRUMP.

A LOT OF DEMOCRATS ARE MAD

AT IT.

BUT HE SAILED PRETTY MUCH

THROUGH HIS CONFIRMATION

HEARING, AND I SUSPECT HE

WILL BE PICKED AS

ATTORNEY-GENERAL.

John: SPEAKING OF

FIGHTS, A BIGGER FIGHT

WILL BE THE ONE ACROSS THE

LAWN AT THE SUPREME COURT.

ANY DAY WE CAN HEAR WHO

TRUMP'S PICK IS TO REPLACE

SCALIA, AND I IMAGINE IT

WILL BE A HUGE, HUGE FIGHT

FOR THEM.

GENERATIONS TO COME

COULD BE AFFECTED BY WHAT

THE COURT DOES.

THE COURT GUYS ARE IN

THERE FOR LIFE.

RIGHT NOW IT IS A 4-4

SPLIT.

TRUMP WANTS TO PICK A

CONSTITUTIONIST, A

PRO-LIFE GUY.

THEY WERE HOPING HILLARY

CLINTON WOULD GET THREE OR

FOUR NOMINEES IN THERE.

SO THE FATE OF THE COURT

COULD BE DECIDED, WHETHER

IT IS GOING TO GO LEFT OR

IT IS GOING TO GO RIGHT.

TRUMP HAS PLEDGED TO THE

PRO-LIFE COMMUNITY TO PICK

A PRO-LIFE NO, MA'AM FOR

THNOMINEE FOR THECOURT.

THEY SAY THEY ARE READY

NOW WITH THE REPUBLICAN

PRESIDENT AND CONGRESS TO

GO FULL BORE AND TRY TO

GET SOME ANTI-ABORTION

MEASURES PASSED.

THIS IS THE MOMENT THAT

THE PRO-LIFE MOVEMENT HAS

BEEN WAITING FOR.

IT IS LIKE NOTHING

WE'VE EVER EXPERIENCED

BEFORE.

THAT IS MARLENE

MUSGRAVE, AND ONE OF THE

NATION'S LEADING PROO LIFE PRO-LIFE

GROUPS.

IT IS A WHOLE NEW

BALLGAME FOR PRESIDENT

TRUMP.

HE HAS STOOD UP AND

DEFENDED PRO-LIFE AND MIKE

PENCE HAS A WONDERFUL

PRO-LIFE RECORD.

WE ARE FACING A THREAT

TO THE UNBORN HAD HILLARY

CLINTON WON.

BARBARACK OBAMA WAS THE

ABORTION PRESIDENT, BUT

SHE WOULD HAVE DOUBLED

DOWN AND MADE IT EVEN

WORSE DOMESTICALLY AND

INTERNATIONALLY.

WE'VE GOTTEN A REPRIEVE IN

TERMS OF THIS ALL OUT

ASSAULT.

Reporter THE MOST IMPORTANT

MOVEMENT IS NOMINATING

PRO-LIFE JUSTICES.

WHEN DO WE GET A CLEAR

INDICATION WHETHER OR NOT

SOMEONE WHO IS NOMINATED

IS PRO-LIFE.

THAT IS AMAZING.

Reporter: ANOTHER

COMMITMENT...

THE FIRST THING ON THE

AGENDA THIS YEAR IS

REDIRECTING PLANNED

PARENTHOOD'S TAXPAYER

FUNDING TO THE MORE THAN

18,000 COMMUNITY HEALTH

CENTERS THAT EXIST ACROSS

THIS COUNTRY.

Reporter:

REPRESENTATIVE BLACKBURN

HAS HEADED UP THIS PANEL.

THE WOMAN WITH THE

FETUS BECAME A PROFIT

CENTER FOR EACH OF THESE

TWO ENTITIES.

AND TO ME THAT IS

ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING.

IT IS ILLEGAL.

IT IS A FELONY, A 10-YEAR

FELONY, TO SELL A HUMAN

BODY PART IN THIS COUNTRY.

SO WHAT WE WILL DO IS GO

ABOUT DEFUNDING THE

ABORTION INDUSTRY.

Reporter: A THIRD

COMMITMENT...

PROMOTING THE UNBORN

CHILD PAIN CAPABLE ACT,

TALKING ABOUT BANNING

ABORTION AFTER THE FIFTH

MONTH.

A MAJORITY OF AMERICANS

ARE ON OUR SIDE.

THEY WANT TO SEE A

COMMON-SENSE RESTRICTION

TO STOP ABORTION AFTER THE

FIFTH MONTH.

Reporter: AND THE

FOURTH AMENDMENT, MAKING

THE HYDE AMENDMENT

PERMANENT.

STOPPING THE TAX

DOLLARS FROM GOING FOR

ABORTION.

Reporter: THAT IDEA

IS ALSO POPULAR WITH THE

PUBLIC.

THEY WANT TO SEE

THEMSELVES PROTECTED,

WHETHER IT IS TAXPAYERS OR

MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS WHO

DON'T WANT TO PARTICIPATE

IN ABORTION.

ABORTION CHEMICALLY

POISONS OR DISMEMBERS A

BEEN PIECE BY PIECE, AND

WE NEED TO STOP IT.

Reporter: WITH TRUMP

READY TO PICK PRO-LIFE

NOMINEES, IT WILL GIVE US

A BETTER CHANCE.

John: PAUL, THANK YOU

SO MUCH.

STILL TO COME, THE MIGHTY

POWER OF THE PEN.

PRESIDENT TRUMP HOPES TO

QUICKLY UNDO SOME OF

PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

POLICIES, BUT THAT MAY BE

EASIER SAID THAN DONE.

THE PURPOSE OF

INAUGURATIONS IS TO SHOW

THAT PEACEFUL TRANSFER OF

POWER.

ONE OF THE FIRST

TRANSFERS OF POWER FROM

ONE PARTY TO ANOTHER WAS

AFTER THE ELECTION OF

1801, WHEN JOHN ADAMS WAS

THE OUTGOING PRESIDENT.

HE LOST A TOUGH ELECTION

TO THOMAS JEFFERSON.

BUT HE DID NOT STAY FOR

ALL OF THE INAUGURATION

ACTIVITIES.

AND HE LEFT TOWN.

WHEN HIS SON, JOHN QUINCY

ADAM LEFT POWER, HE DID

THE SAME THING, AND HE DID

NOT WATCH ANDREW JACKSON

TAKE OVER.

SO I THINK POOR

SPORTSMANSHIP MAY HAVE RUN

IN THE ADAMS' FAMILY.

*

John: WELCOME BACK TO

THE CBN NEWS INAUGURATION

SPECIAL.

AS THE 45th PRESIDENT OF

THE UNITED STATES, DONALD

TRUMP SAYS ONE OF HIS

FIRST ORDERS OF BUSINESS

WILL BE UNDOING SOME OF

THE MORE THAN 260

EXECUTIVE ORDERS PUT IN

PLACE BY HIS PREDECESSOR,

BARACK OBAMA.

CBN NEWS WHITE HOUSE

CORRESPONDENT JENNIFER

WISHON JOINS US TO DISCUSS

THE WORK AHEAD FOR TRUMP.

JENNIFER, UNDOING ALL OF

THOSE EXECUTIVE ORDERS IS

A MIGHTY BIG TASK.

Jennifer: JOHN, IT IS

A GIANT TASK.

PRESIDENT OBAMA LEFT A BIG

MARK DURING HIS EIGHT

YEARS AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

SOME OF HIS POLICIES WILL

BE EASY TO ERASE, AND

OTHERS WILL REQUIRE

PRESIDENT TRUMP TO

PRACTICE PATIENCE.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA

DIDN'T LET A POOR

RELATIONSHIP WITH CONGRESS

STOP HIM FROM ALMOST

SINGLE HANDEDLY PUSHING

HIS AGENDA FORWARD.

President Obama: I'VE

GOT A PEN AND A PHONE.

A PEN TO TAKE EXECUTIVE

ACTION, AND A PHONE TO

RALLY CITIZENS.

Jennifer: HE USED

THAT PEN TO SIGN 266

EXECUTIVE ORDERS MORE THAN

ANY MODERN PRESIDENT

DURING HIS EIGHT YEARS IN

THE WHITE HOUSE.

THAT ALLOWED HIM TO BYPASS

CONGRESS.

BUT A PRESIDENT'S ACTIONS

TAKEN BY THE PEN CAN DIE

JUST AS QUICKLY.

WITH JUST A SIGNATURE,

THEY'RE ALL GONE.

Reporter: WHAT

PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL NOT

BBE ABLE TO EASILY ERASE --

IN HIS FINAL YEAR, HE

WILL ISSUE 100 REGULATIONS

THAT WILL HAVE IMPACT OF

$100 MILLION OR MORE.

Jennifer: THAT IS

$100 MILLION PER

REGULATION PER YEAR.

TRUMP WILL LIKELY DIRECT

AGENCIES TO STOP THOSE IN

THEIR TRACKS.

A NUMBER OF REGULATIONS

ARE ALSO TIED UP IN COURT,

WHICH WILL BE HANDLED BY A

NEW ATTORNEY-GENERAL AND

JUSTICE DEPARTMENT.

BUT FOR THE REST...

THE ONLY OPTION FOR THE

PRESIDENT IS TO GO THROUGH

THE SAME PROCESS, THE

NOTICE AND COMMENT

RULE-MAKING PROCESS TO

UNDO A REGULATION, THE

LAST PRESIDENT HAD TO GO

THROUGH TO PUT THEM IN

EFFECT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

Jennifer: THAT COULD

TAKE AT LEAST A YEAR, AND

THE UNDONE REGULATIONS

WILL PROBABLY ALSO WIND UP

IN COURT.

THIS WILL BE A BATTLE

ROYAL OVER THE NEXT YEAR.

THERE IS NO QUESTION THERE

ARE VERY WELL-FUNDED

LIBERAL SPECIAL INTEREST

GROUPS, FROM PLANNED

PARENTHOOD TO THE SIERRA

CLUB, AND THEY WILL FIGHT

BACK ON THIS, NO QUESTION.

Jennifer: A FRIENDLY

CONGRESS CAN ALSO HELP.

THERE IS A LITTLE KNOWN

ACT THAT ALLOWS THE

LEGISLATURE OVER TURN

REGULATIONS ISSUED DURING

A PRESIDENT'S LAST NEW

MONTHS WITH A SIMPLE

MAJORITY VOTE.

IN ADDITION TO ALL OF

THIS, TRUMP HAS A PLAN TO

FURTHER ELIMINATION

REGULATIONS CRAFTED BY

BUREAUCRATS.

I WILL FORMULATE A RULE

THAT SAYS THAT FOR EVERY

ONE NEW REGULATION, TWO

OLD REGULATIONS MUST BE

ELIMINATED.

IT IS SO IMPORTANT.

Jennifer: IT IS A

TALL TASK THAT EXPERTS

CALL A WORTHWHILE

EXERCISE.

AGENCIES ALWAYS HAVE A

TENDENCY TO ALWAYS BE

LOOKING TO THE NEXT

REGULATION AND THE NEXT

POLICY CONTROL OVER

PRIVATE COMPANIES.

Jennifer: THE TRUMP

REGULATORY BATTLE COMING

SOON TO HEADLINES OR A

TWITTER FEED NEAR YOU.

AH, YES, TWITTER.

WE HAVE CERTAINLY LEARNED

NOT TO UNDERESTIMATE WHAT

PRESIDENT TRUMP CAN

ACHIEVE IN JUST 140

CHARACTERS.

John: THANK YOU,

JENNIFER.

> EARLIER IN THE

PROGRAM, WE TOOK A LOOK AT

A FEW OF THE CABINET

PICKS.

AND NOW WE HEAD BACK TO

THE WASHINGTON TEAM WITH

JEN BROADBANJENNA BROWDER AND DAVID

BRODY.

ONE OF THE KEY CABINET

MEMBERS IS DR. BEN CARSON,

NOMINATED FOR H.U.D.

THAT IS A $48 BILLION

AGENCY THAT WOULD BE IN

HIS HANDS.

David: THAT'S RIGHT.

IN HIS GIFTED HANDS -- GET

IT, THE BOOK -- WE GOT A

CHANCE TO GET TO KNOW DR.

CARSON WHEN TH "THE BRODY

FILE" TRAVELLED TO WEST

PALM BEACH, FLORIDA IN

2016.

AND HE IS HOPING THAT THAT

SIDE GETS ACROSS TO A FEW

SKEPTICAL SENATORS ON

CAPITOL HILL.

DR. BEN CARSON'S RESUME IS

QUITE IMPRESSIVE, WORLD

BEST NEUROSURGEON AND

AUTHOR.

AND HE NOW HOPES TO ADD

SECRETARY OF HOUSING AND

URBAN DEVELOPMENT.

DR. CARSON HAS REPEATED

COMMENTED THAT GOVERNMENT

ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS ARE

HARMFUL.

David: SOME HAVE

ACCUSED CARSON OF LACKING

EMPATHY WHEN IT COMES TO

THE POOR.

YOU STATED, QUOTE,"

POVERTY IS REALLY MORE OF

A CHOICE THAN ANYTHING

ELSE."

YOU PROPOSE THAT EVERY

FEDERAL AGENCY SHOULD TRIM

THEIR BUDGETS WITH A 10%

CROSS-THE BOARD CUTS YEAR

OVER YEAR.

I THINK OF THAT AS A MEAT

AX, NOT A NEUTRA NEUROSURGEON'S

KNIFE.

David: HE SAYS THE

PROGRAMS WOULDN'T BE CUT

WITHOUT AN ADEQUATE

REPLACEMENT.

TRUE COMPASSION IS NOT

KEEPING PEOPLE IN A

SITUATION WHERE WE CAN

FEEL GOOD ABOUT WHAT WE'RE

DOING.

TRUE COMPASSION IS PUTTING

THEM IN A SITUATION WHERE

THEY CAN FEEL GOOD ABOUT

WHERE THEY'RE GOING.

David: IT IS

SOMETHING HE TOLD CBN

NEWS, WHEN WE VISITED HIM

IN 2014, AT HIS FLORIDA

HOME.

WE REALIZE THAT

EDUCATION IS THE GREAT

DIVIDE IN THIS COUNTRY.

IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT

ELSE IS GOING ON IN YOUR

LIFE.

IN YOU GET A GOOD

EDUCATION, YOU HAVE AN

EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY OF

BEING ABLE TO CONTROL THE

EVENTS IN YOUR LIFE AND

NOT BEING A VICTIM.

David: AND HE PUTS

THAT IDEOLOGY INTO ACTION

WITH THE CARSON SCHOLARS

FUND.

THROUGH THAT PROGRAM,

DOCTOR AND MRS. CARSON

HAVE NOT ONLY SENT

STUDENTS TO COLLEGE, BUT

PROVIDED MORE THAN 165

READING ROOMS TO SCHOOLS

ACROSS THE NATION.

THE DROPOUT RATE

NATIONALLY IS BETWEEN 20

AND 30% OF THE INTERCITY

HISTORIES.

AND MANY ARE ILLITERATE

AND CAN'T FILL OUT A JOB

APPLICATION.

David: CARSON'S

SUPPORTERS SAY THIS

DEDICATION, WITH HIS

MEDICAL EXPERIENCE, MAKES

HIM THE PERFECT CANDIDATE

TO LEAD URBAN DEVELOPMENT.

PEOPLE WHO SAY THAT HIS

SKILLS AS A SURGEON, AS A

WORLD REKNOWED

NEUROSURGEON DON'T

TRANSFER TO BEING ABLE TO

SOLVE PROBLEMS IN

H.U.D. SIMPLY ARE WRONG.

THEY CAN'T UNDERSTAND THE

NUANCES OF BEING A

SOLUTIONIST AND A PROBLEM

SOLVER.

DR. CARSON HAS BROUGHT

TOGETHER TEAMS OF DIVERSE

INDIVIDUALS TO SOLVE

PERHAPS THAT HAVE NEVER

BEEN SOLVED.

David: CARSON

BELIEVES HEALTH AND

HOUSING GO HAND-IN-HAND.

THAT'S WHY HE WANTS TO

TAKE ON MAJOR HEALTH

ISSUES AFFECTING INNER

CITIES, INCLUDING LEAD IN

OLDER HOMES.

THIS COMBINED WITH THE

NEEDS OF THE HOUSING WORLD

COULD HELP HIM ADD ONE

MORE ACCOMPLISHMENT IN HIS

LIFE'S MISSION TO HELP

OTHERS.

Reporter: AND ANOTHER

IMPORTANT ROLE THAT HASN'T

BEEN DISCUSSED A LOT IS

THATCTHAT OF THE FIRST LADY.

WE SAW MRS. OBAMA TAKE ON

CHILD OBESITY, AND LAURA

BUSH WAS A CHAMPION OF

EDUCATION.

David: THAT'S RIGHT.

BUT WHEN IT COMES TO

MELANIA TRUMP, SHE HAS

BEEN KIND OF ELUSIVE

THROUGHOUT THE CAMPAIGN.

WE HAD THAT SIT-DOWNING

INTERVIEW TWO WEEKS BEFORE

THE CAMPAIGN.

ONE THING WE KNOW ABOUT

MELANIA TRUMP, SHE PLANS

TO TAKE ON CYBER-BULLYING.

CHARLENE AARON EXPLORERS

THAT.

Charlene: THIS PAST

NOVEMBER, 18-YEAR-OLD

BRANDY VALA OF TEXAS SHOT

HERSELF IN FRONT OF HER

PARENTS AND OTHER MEMBERS

OF HER FAMILY.

THE REASON: ANONYMOUS

BULLIES USED MESSAGING

APPS TO TORMENT HER

NON-STOP ABOUT HER WEALTH.

ONLINE BULLYING, ALSO

KNOWN AS CYBER-BULLYING,

IS WHEN A CHILD IS

THREATENED, HARASSED,

INTIMIDATED, OR

EMBARRASSED, VIA THE

INTERNET OR OTHER

ELECTRONIC DEVICE.

IT IS AN ISSUE THAT

MELANIA TRUMP PLEDGED TO

FOCUS ON IF HER HUSBAND

BECAME PRESIDENT.

OUR CULTURE HAS GOTTEN

TOO MEAN AND TOO ROUGH,

ESPECIALLY TO CHILDREN AND

TEENAGERS.

IT IS NEVER OKAY WHEN A

12-YEAR-OLD GIRL OR BOY IS

MOCKED, BULLIED OR

ATTACKED.

IT IS TERRIBLE WHEN THAT

HAPPENS ON THE PLAYGROUND.

AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY

UNACCEPTABLE WHEN IT IS

DONE BY SOMEONE WITH NO

NAME, HIDING ON THE

INTERNET.

[APPLAUSE]

WE MUST FIND BETTER

WAYS TO HONOR AND SUPPORT

THE BASIC GOODNESS OF OUR

CHILDREN, ESPECIALLY IN

SOCIAL MEDIA.

IT WILL BE ONE OF THE MAIN

FOCUSES OF MY WORK IF I'M

PRIVILEGED ENOUGH TO

BECOME YOUR FIRST LADY.

Charlene: DR. LINDA

MENTAL SAYS TODAY'S

BULLIES OFTEN WORK IN

GROUPS.

I WAS SURPRISED WHEN I

LOOKED AND SAW THAT EVERY

DAY 160,000 STUDENTS

ACROSS THE COUNTRY ARE

AFRAID TO GO TO SCHOOL AND

AREN'T GOING TO SCHOOL

BECAUSE OF CYBER-BULLYING

AND BULLYING IN THE

SCHOOL.

I LOVE THE FACT THAT

MELANIA TRUMP IS STEPPING

UP AND HAS CHOSEN

CYBER-BULLYING AS HER

PLATFORM ISSUE.

Charlene: DONNA RICE

HUGHES IS PRESIDENT OF

"ENOUGH IS ENOUGH," A

GROUP THAT IS TRYING TO

MAKE THE INTERNET SAFER

FOR KIDS.

BULLYING IS HAPPENING

24/7 BECAUSE OF THE

TECHNOLOGY.

THE BULLYING FOLLOWS THAT

CHILD, WHETHER THEY'RE AT

HOME, AT SCHOOL, OR

WHEREVER THEY ARE.

IT'S VERY HARD TO BREAK

AWAY FROM IT.

IT CAN BECOME VERY

OVERWHELMING.

Charlene: CRITICS SAY

SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS AND

COMPANIES DON'T DO ENOUGH

TO DEAL WITH THE PROBLEM.

A 2011 STUDY FOUND THAT A

MILLION KIDS WERE BULLIED

ON Facebook ALONE.

AND ABUSE IS ALSO PROLIFIC

ON TWITTER, WHICH HAS

PLEDGED TO DO MORE.

INCLUDING IMPROVING TOOLS

THAT ALLOW USERS TO MUTE,

BLOCK, AND REPORT

OFFENDERS.

SADLY, MOST SCHOOL

ANTI-BULLYING PROGRAMS

DON'T WORK, POINTING TO A

STUDY FROM THE UNIVERSITY

OF TEXAS IN ARLINGTON.

WHAT THEY FOUND IS

BULLYING ACTUALLY GETS

WORSE WHEN THEY DO THE

CAMPAIGN BECAUSE THE

STUDENTS ARE NOW AWARE OF

THIS AND THEY FIND OTHER

WAYS TO DO IT.

THEY'RE CHALLENGED BY IT.

Charlene: RICE AND

MENTAL AGREE THAT PARENTS

MUST ALSO PLAY A ROLE IN

COMBATING THE PROBLEM.

IF SOMEONE IS MEAN TO

YOU, DON'T LAUGH AT THEM.

TRY TO TAKE THE HIGH ROAD.

WE HAVE TO HAVE PARENTS

WHO ARE THERE, CONCERNED,

TEACHING THEIR KIDS AT

HOME, CHALLENGING THEIR

KIDS WHEN THEY SAY

SOMETHING DISRESPECTFUL,

WHEN THEY DON'T TREAT ONE

ANOTHER WITH KINDNESS, AND

REALLY HELPING THEIR KIDS

DEVELOP MORE PRO-SOCIAL

KINDS OF SKILLS.

Charlene: A CAUSE THE

NEW FIRST LADY HOPES TO

CHAMPION.

WE MUST COME TOGETHER

AS AMERICANS.

WE MUST TREAT EACH OTHER

WITH RESPECT AND KINDNESS,

EVEN WHEN WE DISAGREE.

Charlene: CHARLENE

AARON, CBN NEWS.

David: WELL, IT WILL

BE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW

SHE NAVIGATES HER PLATFORM

AND USES HER POSITION TO

SPREAD A POSITIVE MESSAGE.

STAY TUNED, I GUESS.

AN INTERESTING PLATFORM

GIVEN HOW OUTSPOKEN HER

HUSBAND IS ON TWITTER.

DO YOU THINK THE PRESIDENT

WILL STEP THE BACK A BIT

NOW?

David: LET ME

THINK -- NO.

HE IS COMMANDER IN CHIEF,

HE WILL BE TWITTER IN

CHIEF.

WE ARE GOING TO CHECK OUR

MORNING TWEETS EVERY DAY.

THAT'S THE NEW BULLY

PULPIT AND WHERE THIS

WHOLE THING IS GOING.

THE PEOPLE WHO ARE

AROUND HIM THINK HE IS A

HANDFUL.

David: THEY DO.

AND YOU TALKED TO MIKE

PENCE, AND YOU'RE GETTING

INVOLVED WITH THE PENCE

CAMPAIGN -- NOW THE

ADMINISTRATION.

PENCE IS KIND OF THE

TRIFECTA.

PENCE, PRIEBUS, AND

RYAN, THEY'RE THE POWER

CENTER OF THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION.

THEY'RE GOING TO BE KEY

INFLUENCERS, AND PROBABLY

PART OF THEIR MORNING

ROUTINE IS CHECKING THEIR

TWITTER ACCOUNTS, SEEING

WHAT THE PRESIDENT WILL BE

TWEETING ABOUT.

HE HAS HIS HANDS FULL.

THE FIRST 100 DAYS ARE

GOING TO BE FUN TO WATCH.

David: HE IS GOING

TO WANT VICTORIES IN THESE

FIRST 100 DAYS.

DONALD TRUMP LACKS

PATIENCE -- NEWS FLASH,

THIS IS JUST IN.

SO HE IS GOING TO HAVE TO

UNDERSTAND THAT CONGRESS

HAS TO BE A MAJOR PLAYER

HERE, AND THEY GO A LITTLE

SLOWER THAN HIS TWITTER

FEED.

SO HE IS GOING TO HAVE TO

SETTLE IT DOWN A LITTLE

BIT, AND SO THAT IS

IMPORTANT FOR HIM TO

UNDERSTAND.

WE'LL SEE HOW HE MANAGES

IT.

IT IS TOUGH.

IT IS TOUGH.

JOHN JESSUP WILL BE BACK

WITH MORE OF OUR CBN NEWS

INAUGURATION SPECIAL, BUT,

FIRST, ANOTHER TRIP DOWN

MEMORY LANE.

DAVID, WE TAKE A LOOK AT

WHAT ELSE, BUT

INAUGURATION DAY FASHION.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Jennifer: THE BIGGEST

MEMORY OF THE BALLS IS

ALWAYS THE FIRST LADY'S

GOWN.

EVERYONE WANTS TO KNOW

WHAT THE FIRST LADY IS

WEARING.

I REMEMBER PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S FIRST

INAUGURATION, MICHELLE

OBAMA WORE THE WHITE GOWN,

FLOWING DOWN.

THE DESIGNER OF BARBARA

BUSH'S GOWN WROTE ABOUT

HOW HE SOLD THE SAME GOWN

TO ANOTHER LADY, BEFORE

BARBARA BUSH PICKED IT.

AND HE HAD TO PICK UP THE

GOWN AND SAY, WEAR THE RED

GOWN AND NOT THE BLUE WON, ONE,

AND HE COULD NOT SAY WHY.

CALVIN COOLIDGE, WHICH HE

WAS INAUGURATED, HIS

SPEECH WENT OUT ON RADIO.

AND HE COULD REACH SO MANY

MORE PEOPLE.

EISENHOWER COMES INTO

THE TELEVISION AGE.

AND AT THE SAME TIME

EISENHOWER IS BEING

INAUGURATED, THERE IS THE

FAMOUS "I LOVE LUCY"

EPISODE, IN WHICH SHE

REFERS TO LITTLE RICKY.

THIS IS IN THE 1950s,

BUT IT WAS A REALLY BIG

DEAL AT THE TIME.

AND THE NUMBERS WERE THAT

"I LOVE LUCY" EPISODE WERE

MUCH LARGER THAN THE

EISENHOWER INAUGURATION.

SO 10 YEARS LATER HE SEES

LUCILLE BALL WITH A LITTLE

BOY, AND HE SAYS, IS THIS

THE LITTLE BOY WHO TOOK

AWAY THE ATTENTION FROM MY

*

John: WELCOME BACK TO

OUR CBN NEWS INAUGURATION

SPECIAL.

DEMOCRATS HAVE MADE BETSY

DeVOS A TOP TARGET IN

THEIR QUEST TO TOPPLE A

TRUMP CABINET NOMINEE.

HER FAULT: ADVOCATING

EDUCATION REFORM AND

SCHOOL CHOICE.

AND SHE IS ALSO LINKED TO

CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN

GROUPS.

HEATHER SELLS TRAVELLED TO

DEVOS' HOME TOWN TO LEARN

MORE ABOUT THE NO, MA'AM.

Heather: BETSY

DeVOS HAS LIVED IN GRAND

RAPIDS FOR MOST OF HER

ADULT LIFE.

THEY HAVE MADE THEIR MARK

HERE THANKS TO A FORTUNE

FROM AMWAY.

GRAND RAPIDS HAS ALSO MADE

ITS MARK ON DEVOS.

SHE ATTENDED CALVIN

COLLEGE, A CHRISTIAN

SCHOOL, AND IS HEAVILY

INVOLVED AT A BIBLE

CHURCH.

HE BELIEVED HER DESIRE TO

IMPACT THE CULTURE FOR

CHRIST LED HER TO

EDUCATION.

I BELIEVE THAT GOD

ARRANGED CIRCUMSTANCES IN

HER LIFE THAT THIS BECAME

AN OVERRIDING PASSION OF

HERS.

IT WAS HERE AT THE

POTTER'S HOUSE SCHOOL IN

GRAND RAPIDS THAT SHE

FIRST BEGAN THINKING

SERIOUSLY ABOUT SCHOOL

CHOICE AND WHAT IT COULD

MEAN FOR PARENTS AND THEIR

KIDS.

THIS SCHOOL OPENED IN 1981

TO SERVE STUDENTS IN A

LOW-INCOME NEIGHBORHOOD.

THE ONLY OTHER CHOICE AT

THE TIME, A PUBLIC SCHOOL

RANKED THIRD LOWEST IN THE

STATE.

DEVOS BEGAN VISITING THE

POTTER'S HOUSE AND FOUND

HERSELF DRAWN IN BY ITS

FIRST-RATE EDUCATION AND

PARENTS' STORIES.

I THINK THAT UNTIL YOU

ACTUALLY MEET PEOPLE WHO

ACTUALLY WILL TEAR UP AND

CRY WHEN THEY TELL YOU HOW

DESPERATE THEY WERE FOR

THEIR CHILD TO GO TO A

SAFE SCHOOL, WHERE THEY

WOULD BE LOVED AND CARED

FOR, AND WHERE THEY WOULD

BE NURTURED AND TAUGHT TO

THEIR HIGHEST POTENTIAL --

WHEN SHE BEGAN TO HEAR

THOSE KINDS OF STORIES

FROM THE MOUTHS OF MOTHERS

AND GRANDMOTHERS, THAT'S

PRETTY COMPELLING.

Heather: DEVOS HAS

GONE ON TO BECOME A

NATIONAL LEADER IN

EDUCATION REFORM AND

SCHOOL CHOICE.

NEIL McCLUSKI SAYS IT IS

WHAT SHE IS KNOWN FOR.

WHAT SHE WANTS IS FOR

PEOPLE TO HAVE MONEY

ATTACHED TO THEIR CHILDREN

AND TO BE ABLE TO ATTEND

THE SCHOOL OF THEIR

CHOICE.

Reporter: DEVOS'

CRITICS CHARGE SHE IS

ANTI-PUBLIC EDUCATION.

FATHER ROBERT SIRIKO CALLS

THE CHARGE MISINFORMED.

I DON'T KNOW THAT BETSY

IS IDIOLOGICALLY AGAINST

ALL PUBLIC EDUCATION.

I THINK SHE IS AGAINST

FAILING EDUCATION.

Heather: OPPONENTS

ADD THAT DEVOS COULD

IMPOSE HER RELIGIOUS

BELIEFS ON THE COUNTRY'S

EDUCATION.

BUT McCLUSKI POINTS OUT

THAT IS THE OPPOSITE OF

SCHOOL CHOICE.

WHAT SHE IS REALLY

ASKING FOR IS THAT

RELIGIOUS PEOPLE,

NON-RELIGIOUS PEOPLE, ALL

PEOPLE SIMPLY HAVE A

CHOICE OF THE EDUCATION

THEY GET FOR THEIR

CHILDREN SO THAT WE DON'T

ALL HAVE TO FIGHT OVER A

SINGLE SYSTEM TO DECIDE,

WELL, WHO'S VALUES WILL BE

IMPOSED ON EVERYONE.

Heather: DEVOS'

CHALLENGE NOW: CONVINCE

CRITICS TO ACCEPT HER

CONFIRMATION AS A WIN FOR

ALL.

REPORTING IN GRAND RAPIDS,

HEATHER SELLS, CBN NEWS.

John: AND CBN NEWS

WILL CONTINUE TO FOLLOW

THE FATE OF THIS CABINET

NOMINEE, ALONG WITH ALL OF

THE OTHERS.

BEFORE WE GO, THOUGH, WE

WOULD WANT TO CHECK BACK

IN FOR OUR REPORTING TEAM

FOR SOME FINAL THOUGHTS.

JENNIFER WISHON, YOU ALSO

COVERED THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION, AND I'M

CURIOUS, WHAT ARE SOME OF

YOUR EXPECTATIONS AS WE

TRANSITION TO A TRUMP

PRESIDENCY?

Jennifer: WELL, JOHN,

WE KNOW WHAT PRESIDENT

TRUMP HAS PROMISED

AMERICANS.

BUT BEYOND THAT, WE DON'T

KNOW YET.

HE IS NOT TESTED IN THIS

TYPE OF ATMOSPHERE.

AND WE REALLY DON'T KNOW

WHAT TO EXPECT.

HE IS JUST NOW FEELING THE

WEIGHT OF THIS OFFICE,

WHICH I THINK CHANGES YOU.

ONCE YOU WALK INTO THAT

OVAL OFFICE FOR THE FIRST

TIME AND YOU REALIZE WHAT

IS ON YOUR SHOULDERS, THAT

IS GOING TO CHANGE HIM AS

A LEADER.

BUT WHAT I THINK IS

IMPORTANT FOR CHRISTIANS

TO KEEP IN MIND IS THAT NO

PRESIDENT, NO

ADMINISTRATION, NO

GOVERNMENT CAN CURE ALL OF

THE ILLS OF SOCIETY.

NOR SHOULD IT REPLACE

CHURCH LEADERSHIP WHEN IT

COMES TO REALLY ADDRESSING

HEAD-ON THE MANY ISSUES

FACING AMERICANS, BOTH

MORAL AND OTHERWISE.

SO, JOHN, I THINK DESPITE

THE EXCITEMENT AND ENERGY

THAT WE'RE FEELING, YOU

KNOW, AS THIS

ADMINISTRATION IS USHERED

IN, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT

FOR CHRISTIANS TO KEEP

THEIR EYES ON GOD.

John: JENNIFER, GREAT

POINT.

I APPRECIATE ALL OF YOUR

REPORTING.

> NOW ON TO OUR CHIEF

POLITICAL CORRESPONDENT

DAVID BRODY.

DAVID, SOME FINAL THOUGHTS

FROM YOU?

David: I ECHO A LOT

OF WHAT JENNIFER HAS TO

SAY.

I'LL JUST ADD ONE OTHER

THING: CONSERVATIVES NEED

TO BE READY TO BE

DISAPPOINTED POLITICALLY.

THIS IS NOT A TRUE

CONSERVATIVE THAT WE HAVE

KNOWN FOR MANY, MANY

YEARS.

AND SO LOOK FOR ABOUT 30%

TO 35% OF FEELING

DISAPPOINTED THROUGHOUT

THESE FOUR YEARS.

I THINK CONSERVATIVES ARE

JUST GOING TO HAVE TO GET

USED TO THAT.

NOW, WHEN IT COMES TO THE

EVANGELICAL PRIORITIES AND

THIS ADMINISTRATION, HE IS

GOING TO HAVE TO DO THREE

THINGS TO SATISFY

EVANGELICALS: HE HE WILL HAVE

TO SOMEHOW DEFUND PLANNED

PARENTHOOD, SIGN A BILL

FOR THAT.

HE WILL HAVE TO SOMEHOW

REPEAL THE JOHNSON

AMENDMENT, THAT IS A

LITTLE MORE OF A HEAVY

LIFT, BUT IT CAN BE DONE.

AND VERY IMPORTANT, THAT

SUPREME COURT PIC.

IF HE DOES THOSE THREE

THINGS IN FOUR YEARS,

THAT'S A BIG WIN FOR HIM

AND GETTING EVANGELICALS

OUT TO THE POLLS IN FOUR

YEARS.

John: DAVID, YOU

COVERED HIM FOR A WHILE.

WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT

TRUMP'S FAITH AND HOW HIS

FAITH HAS PERHAPS GROWN.

WE KNOW HE COULDN'T HAVE

GOTTEN HERE IF IT WEREN'T

FOR CHRISTIANS, AND IN

PARTICULARLY,

EVANGELICALS.

David: NO DOUBT

ABOUT IT, JOHN.

THIS HAS BEEN A RIDE FOR

HIM, A JOURNEY.

WHERE HE WAS A YEAR AND A

HALF AGO FAITH-WISE TO

WHERE HE IS TODAY -- WHAT

DO I MEAN BY THAT?

THERE ARE A LOT OF FOLKS

THAT I KNOW PRIVATELY THAT

HAVE MINISTERED TO HIM AND

SHARED THE GOSPEL WITH HIM

IN A VERY UP CLOSE AND

PERSONAL WAY, RIGHT IN HIS

FACE, ABOUT THE BLOOD OF

JESUS CHRIST, AND THAT IT

IS HIS SAVING GRACE ALONE

THAT SAVES US.

I KNOW THOSE WORDS HAVE

BEEN SPOKEN TO DONALD

TRUMP.

HOW HE RECEIVES THAT AND

HOW HE PLAYS IT OUT IN

ACTIONS WILL SAY A LOT,

OBVIOUSLY.

LOOK, HE HAS BEEN IN A

PLACE LIKE THIS FOR A

REASON.

IT IS GOING TO BE

FASCINATING TO WATCH HOW

HIS FAITH MAY INDEED EVEN

GROW FURTHER IN THESE NEXT

FOUR YEARS.

John: DAVID BRODY,

THANK YOU.

NOW LET'S SEND IT OVER TO

CONGRESSIONAL

CORRESPONDENT ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON.

I KNOW YOU'VE TALKED TO

SEVERAL SENATORS AND

REPRESENTATIVES.

WHAT IS YOUR IMPRESSION OF

WHAT IT WILL BE LIKE FOR

THEM TO WORK WITH

PRESIDENT TRUMP?

WELL, OVER TWO-THIRDS

OF THE CURRENT HOUSE HAS

NEVER SERVED UNDER A

REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT, SO

THERE IS A LOT OF

EXCITEMENT ON THE HILL

RIGHT NOW.

OBVIOUSLY THE REPUBLICANS

ARE REALLY EXCITED.

DEMOCRATS ARE KIND OF

FASTENING THEIR SEAT

BELTS.

WE HAVE SEEN THAT OVER 40

OF THEM ARE BOYCOTTING THE

INAUGURATION, WHICH HAS

HONESTLY RECEIVED A LOT OF

NEGATIVE PUSHBACK.

I THINK FROM BOTH SIDES

THERE IS AT LEAST A LOT OF

ENERGY.

David: WELL,

ABIGAIL, THANK YOU SO

MUCH.

WE KNOW YOU HAVE YOUR WORK

CUT OUT FOR YOU.

I WOULD ALSO LIKE TO THANK

OUR ENTIRE REPORTING TEAM

HERE IN WASHINGTON, WHICH

INCLUDES JENNIFER WISHON

AT THE WHITE HOUSE, PAUL

STRAND HERE WITH ME AT

CAPITOL HILL, ALONG WITH

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON, AND OUR

REPORTING B AND B TEAM,

DAVID BRODY AND JENNA

BROWDER.

FINALLY THROUGHOUT

HISTORY, THE BIBLE HAS

PLAYED A BIG PART IN OUR

PRESIDENTS SWEARING IN

CEREMONIES.

WHAT BIBLE WILL PRESIDENT

TRUMP USE FOR HIS SWEARING

IN?

AND WHAT ABOUT SOME OF OUR

OTHER PRESIDENTS.

HERE IS AOOK.

> IT IS A TRADITION THAT

DATES BACK TO AMERICA'S

FIRST PRESIDENT.

TAKING THE OATH WITH ONE

HAND RAISED AND THE OTHER

ON THE BIBLE.

GEORGE WASHINGTON STARTED

THE CUSTOM IN 1789.

A NEWSPAPER REPORT SHOWS

HE BOWED HIS HEAD AND

KISSED THE BIBLE OUT OF

REFERENCE.

SINCE THEN, FOUR

PRESIDENTS HAVE USED

WASHINGTON'S MORE THAN

220-YEAR-OLD BOOK FOR

THEIR SWEARING IN.

AFTER CHOOSING MEMBERS OF

HIS CABINET AND SETTING

POLICY PRIORITIES, ONE OF

THE DECISIONS THE

COMMANDER IN CHIEF MUST

MAKE IS WHAT BOOK WILL HE

USE FOR THE SWEARING IN.

WHILE THE CONSTITUTION

DOES NOT REQUIRE A BIBLE,

USING ONE GIVES US A

GLIMPSE INTO HIS SPIRITUAL

LIFE.

GEORGE W. BUSH USED A

FAMILY BIBLE OPEN TO A

PASSAGE I ISAIAH.

I, RONALD REAGAN, DO

SOLEMNLY SWEAR --

RONALD REAGAN TOOK THE

OATH ON HIS MOTHER'S

WELL-WORN BIBLE, OPENED TO

CHRONICLES: "IF MY PEOPLE,

WHO ARE CALLED BY MY NAME,

SHALL HUMBLE THEMSELVES

AND PRAY AND TURN FROM

THEIR WICKED WAYS, THEN

WILL I HEAR FROM HEAVEN

AND FORGIVE THEIR SIN AND

HEAL THEIR LAND."

I, DWIGHT

D.EISENHOWER --

EISENHOWER ALSO USED

THE WASHINGTON BIBLE OPEN

TO PALMS, THE BOOK MOST

REFERENCED AT PRESIDENTIAL

INAUGURATIONS.

BUT HE WASN'T THE FIRST

WITH TWO BIBLES.

HARRY S. TRUMAN STARTED

THE PRACTICE, FOLLOWED BY

RICHARD NIXON.

I WILL PRESERVE,

PROTECT, AND DEFEND THE

CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED

STATES.

Reporter: IT CAME AT

BARACK OBAMA'S SECOND

INAUGURAL.

HIS CHOICES MARKED THE 100

ANNIVERSARY OF THE

EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION,

WITH THE BIBLE THAT

ABRAHAM LINCOLN USED AT

HIS FIRST INAUGURATION,

WHICH COINCIDED WITH THE

50th ANNIVERSARY OF THE

MARCH ON WASHINGTON, WHICH

IS WHY HE ALSO USED MARTIN

LUTHER KING, JR.'S BIBLE.

HAYES AND TEDDY ROOSEVELT

DIDN'T USE A BIBLE.

AND JOHN QUINCY ADAMS TOOK

HIS OATH ON LAW BOOKS AND

THE CONSTITUTION.

AND ALTHOUGH THE ICONIC

PHOTO LOOKS LIKE HIS HAND

IS ON THE BIBLE, LIN LINDEN

JOHNSON USED JOHN F.

KENNEDY'S BOOK OF PRAYERS

LEFT ON AIR FORCE ONE

BEFORE HIS ASSASSINATION.

INTERESTINGLY, YEARS

LATER, WHEN GERALD FORD

WAS ON AIR FORCE ONE AND

HE WAS PRESIDENT, HE ASKED

ALSO FOR A BIBLE, NOT FOR

SWEARING, BUT JUST FOR

COMFORT.

AND HE COULDN'T FIND A

BIBLE ON AIR FORCE ONE,

AND FROM THEN ON DECREED

THERE SHOULD BE A BIBLE ON

AIR FORCE ONE AND THERE

HAS BEEN ONE EVER SINCE.

Reporter: WHAT ABOUT

AMERICA'S 45th

PRESIDENT?

IN 2012, DONALD TRUMP TOLD

CBN NEWS HE RECEIVES

BIBLES FROM THE PUBLIC.

David: WHERE ARE ALL

OF THOSE BIBLES?

ACTUALLY, WE KEEP THEM

IN A CERTAIN PLACE, A VERY

NICE PLACE.

BUT PEOPLE SEND ME BIBLES.

I GET SO MUCH MAIL.

AND BECAUSE, LIKE, I'M IN

THIS INCREDIBLE LOCATION

IN MANHATTAN, YOU CAN'T

KEEP MOST OF THE MAIL YOU

GET.

Reporter: CBN NEWS

HAS CONFIRMED, WHEN DONALD

TRUMP TAKES THE OATH OF

OFFICE, HE'LL USE THE

BIBLE HIS MOTHER GAVE HIM

IN 1955, AS WELL AS THE

LINCOLN BIBLE, CONTINUING

A TRADITION THAT SIGNALS A

NEW BEGINNING.

John: WELL, THAT DOES

IT FOR ALL OF US HERE IN

WASHINGTON.
