AT OUR NEWSWATCH, DOZENS

OF DEADLY

TORNADOS RIP THROUGH THE

SOUTH WITH

POWERFUL STORMS LEADING

THROUGH THE

NATION.

PLUS, PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP

LEADS IN

OFFICE AND WHAT HE HAS

ACCOMPLISHED

OVER THE WEEKEND. AND THE

FIRST LADY

TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN

AMERICA.

Efrem: THANK YOU VERY MUCH

FOR

JOINING US FOR CBN NEWSWATCH.

I'M EFREM GRAHAM. DEADLY

WEATHER

STORMED TAKING THE LIVES OF

NEARLY 19

PEOPLE. MARK MARTIN HAS THE

STORY.

A TURN TO IN GEORGIA WAS

AFFECTED

BY THIS DEADLY TORNADO TAKING

THE

LIVES OF SEVEN PEOPLE AND

PEOPLE

COVERING UP IN HOMES.

WE COVERED EACH OTHER AND

LIED

THERE AND PRAYED.

AT LEAST 14 PEOPLE DIED IN

GEORGIA

AS A STRONG TORNADO RIPPED

THROUGH THE

STATE POUNDED BY THIS SEVERE

WEATHER.

WE EXPRESSED OUR SINCERE

CONDOLENCES FOR THE LIVES

TAKEN.

WHETHER THE INSTRUCTION

AFFECTED

THAT AREA, THIS DESTRUCTION

WAS ON THE

GROUND 14 MILES.

I TWISTER PUMMELED THIS AREA

WITH

AROUND 130 MILES PER HOUR

WINDS.

MEANWHILE CBN 'S "OPERATION

BLESSING"

IS HELPING RESIDENTS REMOVE

DEBRIS AND

PROVIDE FOOD FOR THOSE IN

NEED AND

HELP REBUILD THEIR LIVES.

THE STORM IS MOVING NORTH UP

THE

ATLANTIC COAST.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP IS

IN HIS

1ST WEEK IN OFFICE TACKLING

ISSUES.

WE ARE GOING TO DO SOME

GREAT

THINGS OVER THE NEXT 8 YEARS.

DESPITE PROTEST OVER THE

WEEKEND,

DONALD TRUMP IS CONTINUING

HIS MESSAGE

OF UNITY SPEAKING TO HIS

STAFF AS MANY

ARE SWORN IN.

WE ARE FACING MANY

CHALLENGES, BUT

WITH THE FAITH OF EACH OTHER

AND FAITH

IN GOD, WE WILL GET IT DONE.

FROM ISAIAH 31, THOSE WITH

HOPE IN

THE LORD WILL RENEW THEIR

STRENGTH.

THEY WILL SOAR LIKE EAGLES.

IT'S OUR

DUTY TO SUPPORT PRESIDENT

DONALD TRUMP

AS HE SUPPORTED THE PEOPLE

FIRST.

FOR PRESIDENT DONALD

TRUMP, HE WENT

TO WORSHIP.

SATURDAY HE ATTENDED A

PRAYER

SERVICE AT THE NATIONAL

CATHEDRAL. THE

TRUMP TEAM ASKED THE NUMBER

OF

EVANGELICAL SPEAKERS TO TAKE

PART IN

THE INTER FAITH EVENT THAT

HAD BEEN

INVITED UNDER PREVIOUS

PRESIDENTS.

FIRST LADY MELANIA TRUMP WAS

MOVED TO

TEARS WHILE LISTENING TO THE

PERFORMANCE OF THE HYMN HOW

GREAT THOU

ART.

LATER HE WILL HOLD A MEETING

BETWEEN

CANADA AND MEXICO TO

RENEGOTIATE THE

TRADE AGREEMENT KNOWN AS

NAFTA.

I WANT TO ASK GOD FOR HIS

PROTECTION OVER US AS WE

SERVE

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP.

> HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF

PEOPLE

PROTESTED THIS WEEKEND TO

SEND

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP A

MESSAGE ON

EQUAL RIGHTS. THE LARGEST WAS

THE

MARCH ON WASHINGTON D.C. THIS

PASSED

THE PRESENCE OF PRESIDENT

DONALD

TRUMP'S CEREMONY.

THEY LATER LEARNED PLANNED

PARENTHOOD

WAS ONE OF THE SPONSORS.

I THINK IT'S IMPORTANT FOR

THESE

WOMEN WHO ARE HERE TODAY TO

UNDERSTAND

THAT THEY ARE IN THE MINORITY.

THAT THE MAJORITY OF

AMERICANS AGREE

WITH US.

BY NOT PARTICIPATING, THE

ENTIRE AREA

OF THIS NEED THAT WOMEN'S

MARCH, THAT

WE WERE ABLE TO CHANGE THE

NARRATIVE.

THE MARCH KICKED OFF AS

HUNDREDS

OTHER MARCHES TOOK PLACE

AROUND IN

U.S. AND AROUND THE WORLD.

MOST OF TRUMP'S CABINET IS

TO BE

SWORN IN THIS WEEK.

SENATOR JOHN MCCAIN AND

LINDSEY GRAHAM.

IF CONFIRMED HE COULD TAKE

THE JOB AT

A TIME OF GROWING ARREST

AROUND THE

WORLD. JOHN JESSUP HAS MORE.

FROM THE WAR ON TERROR TO

REFUGEES

TO IRAN, THE INTERNATIONAL

STAGE WAITS

FOR DONALD TRUMP AND HIS

FORMER OIL

EXECUTIVE.

AMERICAN LEADERSHIP MUST

NOT ONLY

BE RENEWED, IT MUST BE

ASSERTED.

TRUMP DESCRIBES HIS CHOICE

AS ONE

OF THE TRULY GREAT BUSINESS

LEADERS OF

THE WORLD.

CRITICS QUICKLY POUNCED ON

TILLERSON'S

LACK OF DIPLOMATIC EXPERIENCE

AND

WHILE THOSE SPOKE ABOUT HIS

TIES ON

EXXON MOBIL WITH BUSINESS IN

MORE THAN

50 COUNTRIES.

HE WROTE ABOUT EXXON.

WHAT ABOUT THE POWER OF

EXXON. IT WAS

MORE LIKE A STATE WITHIN

ITSELF.

I HEARD COMMENTS THAT

THERE IS AN

ALLUSION OR REFERENCE TO

EXXON MOBIL

HAVING IT'S OWN STATE

DEPARTMENT.

OVER THE YEARS IT HAS BEEN

CALLED

TO OVER STATE THE DEPARTMENT

AND THAT

MANAGEMENT MAYBE WHAT IS

NEEDED TO DO

THE JOB.

I WOULD NOT USE THAT TERM.

WHAT DUE SAY ABOUT RUSSIA.

IT REMAINS HIS TIES TO

RUSSIA AND

BOTH SIDES QUESTION IF IT'S

TOO COZY.

IT'S NOT THAT HE HAS A

RELATIONSHIP

WITH PUTIN LIKE THE ROADSIDE.

HE WAS ABLE TO WORK WITH HIM

IN A VERY

PRACTICAL AND HARD NOSE WAY.

IT BROKE WITH TRUMP THAT

HE SHOULD

HAVE A CLEAR ISSUE ITEM WHILE

WORKING

WITH THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.

IT WAS THIS LEADERSHIP AND

THE DOOR

WAS OPEN. RUSSIA MUST KNOW

THAT WE ARE

ACCOUNTABLE TO OUR COMMITMENT

AND OUR

ALLIES AND RUSSIA MUST BE

HELD TO

ACCOUNT.

THAT ISIS WILL BE

AFFECTED.

WE NEED TO BE REAL ABOUT

RADICAL

ISLAM AND DEFEATING ISIS.

MOST ON THESE DUTIES AND

WHAT HE

LEARN WHILE ON EAGLE SCOUT

AND HIS

INTERVIEW TO BE THE NEXT

SECRETARY OF

STATE.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS

SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH

UNIQUE

ADVISORS TO HELP AROUND THE

PRESIDENCY.

DAVID BREAKS IT DOWN FOR

US IN TRUE

BRODY STYLE FILE.

THE WHITE HOUSE IS ABOUT

TO GET A

FACE LIFT.

IT'S NOT JUST DONALD TRUMP

MOVING IN.

MEET THE INFLUENCES.

VICE-PRESIDENT

MIKE PENCE, SENIOR CONWAY AND

CHIEF OF

STAFF. TRUMP WILL LOOK TO ALL

FOUR TO

IMPLEMENT HIS 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.

MIKE PENCE AND HIS TRADITION

WILL

ALLOW HIM TO MOVE KEY

LEGISLATION DOWN

PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE TO THE

PRESIDENT'S

DESK.

HE'S TRULY A STAR.

HE'S THE HARDEST WORKING GUY.

HE'S THE REALIST AND KNOWS

WHAT CAN

AND CAN'T BE DONE. TRUMP

LISTENING IS

ANOTHER MATTER.

CONWAY IS ANOTHER TRUMP --

WHO PLANS

TO WORK ON THE AGENDA.

ANTIESTABLISHMENT SPEAKER

PUSHING

TRUMP TO BE DIFFERENT.

THAT PART OF IT SHOULDN'T BE

TOO HARD.

WE ARE NOT DONE WITH THE

INFLUENCER

LIST.

THE POWER COUPLE OF WHO WE

LIKE TO

CALL JAVANKA WHO IS TRUMP'S

SENIOR

ADVISOR AND WILL DISCUSS ANY

MIDDLE

EAST PEACE DEAL. SHE HAS THE

EAR OF

HER FATHER OF ALL TIME

ESPECIALLY ON

SO-CALLED WOMEN'S ISSUES AND

LOOKING

AT EXACTLY WHAT TRUMP PUSHES

HOW MUCH

HER FATHER WILL STUMP.

HE'S TRYING TO COORDINATE

HIS

POLICIES WITH TRUMP. THIS

COMES AFTER

A ROCKY RELATIONSHIP WITH

PRESIDENT

BARACK OBAMA AFTER UNITING

THE JEWISH

SETTLEMENT AS A -- ILLEGAL.

NETANYAHU

DISCUSSED THE PEACE PROCESS.

MEANWHILE

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP HAS

INVITED

NETANYAHU TO VISIT WASHINGTON.

CHRIS MITCHELL HAS THIS

STORY.

TRUMP INVITED NETANYAHU TO

VISIT

SOMETIME IN FEBRUARY DURING A

PHONE

CALL SUNDAY BETWEEN THE TWO

LEADERS. A

STATEMENT IN WASHINGTON SAID

THEY HAD

DISCUSSED WAYS TO ADVANCE AND

STRENGTHEN THE U.S. SPECIAL

RELATIONSHIP AND SECURITY AND

STABILITY IN THE MIDDLE EAST.

NETANYAHU'S OFFICE DESCRIBED

THE

CONVERSATION AS WARM.

THE STATEMENT FROM BOTH SIDES

SAID

THEY HAD DISCUSSED IRAN.

ABSENCE FROM BOTH STATIONS

WAS

MOVING ANY EMBASSY FROM TEL

AVIV TO

JERUSALEM.

EARLIER TOLD THAT WASHINGTON

WOULD

MOVE THE HOUSE ON MONDAY.

THAT THEY ARE AT THE VERY

BEGINNING

STAGES OF DISCUSSING THIS

SUBJECT.

HE APPLAUDED TRUMP AND

SAID IT SENT

A CLEAR MESSAGE TO THE WORLD

IDENTIFYING JERUSALEM AS THE

INDIVIDUAL CAPITOL OF THE

STATE OF

ISRAEL.

THE GOVERNMENT BREATHES A

SIGH OF

RELIEF FOLLOWING THE

INAUGURATION AND

WILL WAIT TO SEE HOW TRUMP

FOLLOWS

THROUGH ON HIS PLEDGES.

CBN NEWS, JERUSALEM.

AN 85-YEAR-OLD MEDAL OF

ARMOR,

CHARLIE RESCUED MORE THAN 80

WOUNDED

MEN AFTER COMING UNDER ATTACK.

HE BECAME A PEACE ACTIVIST.

HE WAS 85.

STILL TO COME, PRESIDENT

DONALD

TRUMP WANTS TO TARGET THE

GOVERNMENT

OVER REACH AT THE

ENVIRONMENTAL

PROTECTIONATION.

BUT WILL HIS NOMINATION BE

ABLE TO

CLEAR THE SENATE.

> PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP'S

PICK TO

PICK TO

LEAD THE ENVIRONMENTAL

PROTECTION

AGENCY HAS FACED A STORM OF

CRITICISM

OVER HIS VIEWS ON CLIMATE

CHANGE BUT

HE PUT SOME OF THOSE CONCERNS

TO REST.

WHILE HE LOOKS AT THE NOMINEE

GENERAL

SCOTT PRUIT.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP

SURPRISED

MANY AFTER CHOOSING SCOTT

PRUIT.

AFTER HIS CONFIRMATION

HEARING PRUITT

SAID HE DOES NOT BELIEVE THAT

CLIMATE

CHANGE IS A HOEKS.

THE ABILITY TO MEASURE

WITHIN

PERSISTENCE OF DEGREE AND

WILL ACHIEVE

THE DIALOGUE.

THE NEW YORK CITY REPORTED

THAT

PRUITT IS A CLOSE ALLEY OF

THE

INDUSTRY AND THAT HE'S A

DENIALIST.

TIM DOWNING DISAGREES.

I THINKS THOSE CONCERNS

ARE

MISGUIDED AND ILL INFORMED. I

SAY THAT

BECAUSE AS ANYONE HEARD THE

COMMENTS

OF GENERAL PRUITTS, HE'S USE

THE TERM

REGULAR, REGULATION MEANS

REGULAR. BY

THAT HE STOPS AND PICKS

WINNERS AND

LOSERS AND AN EVEN PLAYING

FIELD FOR

THE INDUSTRY.

THE ATTORNEY GENERAL

DESCRIBED THE

WORK ETHIC OF HIS FORMER BOSS

AS

RELENTLESS.

HE WANTS THE DO A GOOD JOB

FOR THE

PEOPLE AND IS A CALLING.

WHEN HE WAKES UP IN THE

MORNING, HE

HAS AN EXTRA BURST OF ENERGY

BECAUSE

HE KNOWS WHAT HE'S DOING IS

IMPORTANT.

HE WORKED FOR YEARS WHILE

WORKING

FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM.

NOW AS HE LOOKS TOWARDS

EPA,

OPPONENTS LOOK AT THE LEGAL

BATTLES

THAT HE HAS.

HE HAS SUED THE EPA ACCORDING

TO HIS

BELIEFS.

I THINK SCOTT'S POSITION

IS STRONG.

HE'S JUST THE KIND OF GUY

THAT'S GOING

TO TAKE AND BALANCE

EVERYTHING.

HE'S GOING TO LOOK HARD AT IT.

THERE WILL BE THOSE WHO WILL

LOOK HARD

AT IT BECAUSE HE'S TAKING

THIS

POSITION AS IN THE PAST. BUT

HE'S

GOING TO BE FAITHFUL TO THE

LAWS OF

THE LANDS.

IT'S THE STORY BEHIND THIS

MAN THAT

MAKES A GOOD CHOICE BEHIND

DONALD

TRUMP IN WASHINGTON.

HE HAS BEEN ATTENDING THIS

CHURCH

FOR MORE THAN 30 YEARS. HE'S

A DEACON

HERE AND HIS PASTOR SAYS HE

HAS A

SOLID CHRISTIAN FAITH.

EVERY TIME WE COME TO PRAY

FOR HIM,

WE ARE ALWAYS AMAZED AS TO

HIS INSIGHT.

YOU HAVE TO HAVE INSIGHT WITH

GOD AND

WHAT HE KNOWS.

IT'S A GREAT WISDOM THAT

SCOTT HAS

AND HE'S ABLE TO ARTICULATE

THOSE

THINGS AND SHARE THE GOSPEL

AND SHARE

WITH PEOPLE AND ABOUT JESUS

CHRIST.

HE'S A MAN OF PRAYER.

EVERY STEP

YOU TOOK, HE FELT LIKE GOD

WAS

DIRECTING HIM WHICH I THINK

HE WAS.

WAGNER BELIEVES PRUITT IS

A MAN OF

FAITH AND WILL BRING UNITY

AND

DIVISION.

OKLAHOMA.

MELANIA TRUMP IS FACING

BULLYING IN

AMERICA.

AMERICA.

> THE FIRST LADY PLAYS AN

IMPORTANT

ROLE IN ANY WHITE HOUSE. WE

SAW

MICHELLE OBAMA TAKE ON

CHILDHOOD

OBESITY.

WHAT WILL MELANIA TRUMP'S

MISSION BE.

WE BELIEVE SHE IS TAKING ON

CYBER

BULLYING.

THIS PAST NOVEMBER

18-YEAR-OLD

BRANDY SHOT HERSELF IN FRONT

OF HER

PARENTS AND OTHER MEMBERS OF

HER

FAMILY. THE REASON, ANONYMOUS

BULLYING

USING MESSAGING APPS TO

TORMENT HER

ABOUT HER WEIGHT.

ONLINE BULLYING ALSO KNOWN AS

CYBER

BULLYING WHEN SOMEONE IS

HARASSED OR

INTIMIDATED VIA THE INTERNET

OR

ELECTRONIC DEVICE. IT'S A MAN

THAT

MELANIA HAS FOCUSED ON IF

TRUMP

BECOMES PRESIDENT.

THIS IS ESPECIALLY FOR

CHILDREN.

IT IS NEVER OKAY WHEN A

12-YEAR-OLD

GIRL OR BOY IS BULLIED OR

ATTACK.

IT'S A TERRIBLE THING TO

HAPPEN ON THE

PLAYGROUND AND UNACCEPTABLE

WHEN

SOMEONE IS HIDING ON THE

INTERNET.

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.

DOCTOR SAYS TODAY'S

BULLIES WORK IN

GROUPS FOCUSING THEIR ATTACKS

ONLINE.

I WAS SURPRISED TO SEE

THAT

EVERYDAY HUNDREDS OF

THOUSANDS ARE

STUDENTS ARE AFRAID THE GO TO

SCHOOL

AND AREN'T GOING TO SCHOOL

BECAUSE OF

CYBER BULLYING.

I'M GLAD MELANIA TRUMP IS

STEPPING

UP ON CYBER BULLYING.

DOCTOR SAYS ENOUGH IS

ENOUGH AND

TRYING TO MAKE INTERNET SAFER

FOR

KIDS.

BULLYING IS HAPPENING 100%

BECAUSE

OF THE TECHNOLOGY.

THE BULLYING FOLLOWS THAT

CHILD AT

HOME AND SCHOOL AND IT'S HARD

TO BREAK

AWAY FROM IT AND IT COULD BE

OVERWHELMING.

CRITICS SAY THE SCHOOLS

ARE NOT

DOING ENOUGH TO DEAL WITH THE

PROBLEM.

A STUDY FOUND SAY MILLION

KIDS BULLIED

FROM HOME ALONE AND THEY ARE

WORKING

TO IMPROVING TOOLS THAT WILL

BLOCK

THOSE AND THAT IT DOESN'T

WORK.

THEY FOUND THAT BULLYING

GETS WORSE

WHEN THEY ARE DOING THE

CAMPAIGN

BECAUSE STUDENTS ARE AWARE OF

IT AND

FIND OTHER WAYS THE DO IT AND

MORE

CHALLENGED BY IT AND BULLYING

INCREASES.

THAT PARENTS MUST ALSO

PLAY A ROLE

IN COMBATTING A PROBLEM.

IF SOMEONE BULLIES YOU,

DON'T LASH

BACK.

THAT PARENTS SHOULD BE THERE

WHEN KIDS

SAY SOMETHING DISRESPECTFUL

AND DON'T

TREAT ONE ANOTHER WITH

KINDNESS AND

HELPING KIDS DEVELOP WITH

MORE PRO

SOCIAL SKILLS.

SOMETHING THAT THE FIRST

LADY WILL

CHAMPION.

WE MUST TREAT EACH OTHER

WITH

RESPECT AND KINDNESS.

COMEDIAN CHONDA PIERCE IS

KNOWN FOR

MAKING PEOPLE LAUGH. BUT THIS

TIME SHE

WAS ON A POST IN WASHINGTON

DURING THE

MARCH AND ABOUT ATTENDING THE

MARCH.

ONE QUOTE SAYS, I DO NOT SAY

I'M A

CRITIC BECAUSE I DID NOT

ATTEND THE

MARCH.

I DO NOT FEEL MY VOICE IS NOT

HEARD

BECAUSE I'M A WOMAN. THAT WAS

MADE BY

KELLY PARKER. IT'S BEEN

SHARED MORE

THAN 100,000 TIMES. PIERCE

ATTENDED

THE INAUGURAL BALL. SHE TOLD

US SHE

WAS HONORED TO BE INVITED.

I HAVE BEEN IN COUNTRIES

WHERE

WOMEN ARE NOT ALLOWED TO DO

THAT,

WHENEVER THEY ARE NOT ALLOWED

TO SHOW

THEIR FACE IN PUBLIC.

AS A WOMAN TO BE INVITED TO A

CROWN

JEWEL OF OUR DEMOCRACY AND

SAY NO, MY

GRANDMOTHER WOULD FLIP -- IN

HER GRAVE.

FOR THAT PERFORMANCE, YOU

CAN

SIMPLY LOG ON TO CBNNEWS.COM.

YOU CAN FIND OUT MORE ISSUES

THAT YOU

CARE ABOUT BY LOGGING ON TO

CBNNEWS.COM. MAKE THIS A

FABULOUS

MONDAY.

WE'LL SEE YOU HERE TOMORROW.
