President Trump has come to Washington and is already shaking things up. The Brody File explores his relationship with the media. Jennifer Wishon joins us from The White House and Abigail Robertson reports on what Congress might be able to ... Read Transcript

* MY CREW BRINGS CHRIST TO

THE ALLEY *

* WE MAKE DISCIPLES

David: AND WELCOME,

EVERYBODY, TO ANOTHER

EDITION OF "THE BRODY

FILE."

GLAD YOU'RE WITH US.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS IN THE

WHITE HOUSE, AND LIBERALS

WITH THE SMELLING SALTS.

THEY HAVE YET TO RECOVER.

DON'T WORRY, YOU'LL

RECOVER.

IT MIGHT BE FOUR YEARS OR

EVEN EIGHT.

JEJENNY AND THE "B" BLOCK

GOT TO ASK THE SECOND

QUESTION AT SEAN SPICER'S

FIRST WHITE HOUSE MEETING.

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP

REINSTATED THE SO-CALLED

MEXICAN CITY POLICY.

IT PROHIBITS COUNTRIES

FROM PROMOTING OR

SUPPORTING ABORTION.

DOES HE SEE THE REDUCTION

OF ABORTIONS AS AN

AMERICAN VALUE?

AND HERE AT HOME, CAN

PRO-LIFE PEOPLE EXPECT HIM

TO PUT HIS SIGNATURE ON

LEGISLATION THAT WILL

DEFUND PLANNED PARENTHOOD.

HE WANTS TO STAND UP

FOR ALL AMERICANS,

INCLUDING THE UNBORN.

I THINK THE REINSTATEMENT

OF THIS POLICY IS NOT JUST

SOMETHING THAT ECHOES THAT

VALUE, BUT RESPECTS

TAXPAYER FUNDING AS WELL.

AND ENSURES WE'RE STANDING

UP NOT JUST FOR LIFE, LIFE

OF THE UNBORN, BUT FOR

ALSO TAXPAYER FUNDS BEING

SPENT OVERSEAS TO PERFORM

AN ACTION THAT IS CONTRARY

TO THE VALUES OF THIS

PRESIDENT.

AND IT WILL ILLUSTRATE TO

FOLKS HERE IN THIS COUNTRY

AND AROUND THE WORLD WHAT

A VALUE WE PLACE ON LIFE.

Reporter: IT IS A

FIRST NOD TO EVANGELICALS,

WHO OVERWHELMING SUPPORTED

HIS CANDIDACY.

SEAN SPICER'S FIRST PRESS

BRIEFING SIGNALLED A NEW

DAY IN WASHINGTON.

HE CALLED FIRST ON THE NEW

YORK POST AND SECOND ON

CBN NEWS, BY PASSING THE

MAINSTREAM MEDIA.

THE GROUP "LIVE ACTION"

RELEASES A NEW

INVESTIGATION THAT DEBUNKS

PLANNED PARENTHOOD'S CLAIM

IT OFFERS PRE-NATAL CARE.

WE DON'T OFFER

PRE-NATAL CARE.

WE SPECIALIZE IN

ABORTIONS.

THAT'S WHAT OUR

ULTRASOUNDS ARE FOR, TO

SEE HOW FAR ALONG A

PATIENT IS.

David: JENNY, YOU'RE

IN THE BRIEFING ROOM, AND

SORRY, ASSOCIATED PRESS,

JENNY AND THE "B" BLOCK

HAS A QUESTION.

HOW DID THAT GO?

Reporter: IT WAS

REMARKABLE.

SEAN SPICER WALKED THE

WALK THAT HE AND THE

TRANSITION TEAM HAVE BEEN

TALKING ABOUT FOR MONTHS.

IMONTHS.

CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG, I

DON'T THINK THAT HAPPENED

IN THE BUSH ADMINISTRATION

AND IT DEFINITELY DIDN'T

HAPPEN IN THE EIGHT

MINUTES IN THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION BECAUSE I

WAS HERE WITH MY HAND UP,

BAND THAT DIDN'T HAPPEN.

SEAN SPICER IS BREAKING

WITH TRADITION, BUT THAT

IS NOT NECESSARILY A BAD

THING, RIGHT?

THE SECOND QUESTION WAS

FROM A CHRISTIAN

BROADCASTING NETWORK.

IN TRUMP'S SECOND DAY, HE

EREINSTATED A POLICY THAT

CHRISTIANS CARE ABOUT.

IT IS REFRESHING TO HEAR

TWO VOICES THAT HAVEN'T

BEEN HEARD FROM IN A LONG

TIME.

IT IS LIKE THE LAND OF

MISFIT TOYS, BUT THOSE

DAYS ARE OVER.

David: THE LAND OF

THE MISFIT TOYS -- I'M

GOING TO TWEET THAT ONE

OUT, JENNIFER.

> LET ME ASK YOU ABOUT

ACCESS AT THE WHITE HOUSE.

IS IT YOUR SENSE THAT CBN

WILL BE GETTING CONTINUED

ACCESS?

IT SEEMS LIKE THE POOL

SPRAYS -- IT SEEMS LIKE

THERE IS A LOT MORE ACCESS

ALREADY WITH THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION?

Jennifer: THERE DOES.

WE KNOW THAT DONALD TRUMP

LOVES CAMERAS, RIGHT?

SO I THINK JUST HIS NATURE

IS GOING TO ALLOW THERE TO

BE MORE POOL SPRAYS AND

THAT SORT OF THING.

IN TERMS OF US HAVING

ACCESS, YOU AND I HAVE HAD

POSITIVE MEETINGS WITH

SENIOR STAFF.

THEY SEEM TO BE VERY

ACCOMMODATING.

HERE IS THE BEST PART:

TREATING US LIKE WE'RE

LIKE THE REST OF THE

JOURNALISTS IN THE PRESS

BRIEFING ROOM AND NOT SOME

ODDITY.

THAT'S WHAT IS SO

REFRESHING.

DAVID, AS YOU KNOW, SOME

80% OF AMERICANS IDENTIFY

AS CHRISTIANS.

THIS IS NOT SOMETHING THAT

IS A SPECIALTY MEDIA.

THIS IS MAINSTREAM-FOUGHT.

I THINK THE TRUMP

ADMINISTRATION RECOGNIZES

THAT.

AND THEY RECOGNIZE THAT

EVANGELICALS HELPED THEM

GET HERE, AND THEY'LL BE

WATCHING CLOSELY TO SEE

WHAT THIS ADMINISTRATION

DOES.

I'M HERE TO BE THEIR EYES

AND EARS.

David: JENNIFER, ON

A NARCISSISTIC NOTE, CAN

YOU PLUG THE STORY THAT IS

COMING UP LATER, THE

MICHAEL WARE STORY.

WHAT ARE WE GOING TO SEE A

LITTLE LATER IN THE STORY?

Jennifer: THIS IS A

FASCINATING CONVERSATION.

MICHAEL WARE RAN FAITH OUT

REACH FOR THIS 2012

CAMPAIGN.

WE TALKED ABOUT SO MANY

INCREDIBLY FASCINATING

THINGS, WHAT IT WAS LIKE

FOR HIM TO ENDURE THE

OBAMACARE CONTRACEPTION

MANDATE CONTROVERSY.

WHAT IT WAS LIKE FOR HIM

THROUGHOUT PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S EVOLUTION ON GAY

MARRIAGE, WHICH WASN'T AN

EVOLUTION BECAUSE HE

ALWAYS SUPPORTED GAY

MARRIAGE.

AND HE BRINGS IT BACK TO

THE FACT THAT WHEN YOU

HAVE YOUR HOPE IN JESUS,

ALL IS WELL.

David: AMEN.

AND I BELIEVE DOT, DOT,

DOT, AMEN.

THANKS, JENNY, APPRECIATE

IT.

Jennifer: THANK YOU.

David: SPEAKING OF

THE WHITE HOUSE, THERE IS

ALSO ANOTHER CO-EQUAL

BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT

CALLED CONGRESS.

TRUMP IS GOING TO HAVE TO

DEAL WITH THEM.

THEY HAVE A LOT ON THEIR

PLATE.

CAN THEY CO-EXIST AND WHAT

ARE SOME OF THE ISSUES IN

FRONT OF THIS NEW CONGRESS

THAT HAS BEEN SWORN IN.

ABIGAIL ROBERTSON WITH THE

STORY.

Reporter: THE 115th

CONGRESS IS OFFICIALLY IN

SESSION.

WHILE ONE SIDE PICKS UP

THE PIECES FROM A BRUTAL

DEFEAT...

I BELIEVE THAT THE

DEMOCRATS MUST TAKE A HARD

LOOK AT WHAT WE CAN DO

BETTER.

Reporter:

...REPUBLICANS HAVE HIT

THE GROUND RUNNING,

PREPARING TO A FULL

ADVANTAGE OF THEIR LEAD.

TOP OF THE LIST IS

REPEALING OBAMACARE.

BUDGET RESOLUTIONS THAT

DISMANTEL THE ACT HAVE

ALREADY PASSED THE HOUSE

AND SENATE.

SENATOR RAND PAUL, ONE OF

THE FEW WHO VOTED AGAINST

PARTY LINES, SAYS HE IS IN

FAVOR OF REPEALING THE LAW

AS SOON AS POSSIBLE, BUT

NOT IF IT ADDS $9 TRILLION

TO THE DEBT.

MY POINT WAS WHY DON'T

WE INTRODUCE A BUDGET THAT

ACTUALLY BALANCES.

MY HOPE IS THAT AT THE

SAME TIME WE REPEAL

OBAMACARE IS ALSO TO HAVE

A SEPARATE VOTE ON

REPLACING OBAMACARE.

Repter: ANOTHER

PRESSING MATTER: BOOSTING

THE MILITARY.

WE NEED TO REBUILD OUR

MILITARY.

IT'S IN VERY BAD SHAPE.

IT HAS BEEN CUT BY 21%,

WHILE OTHER ADVERSARIES

HAVE INCREASED THEIR

CAPABILITIES TO THE POINT

WHERE THEY'RE CLOSING THE

GAP BETWEEN OURSELVES AND

THEM.

Reporter: BOTH

PARTIES IN THE HOUSE AND

SENATE SHOW DISCONTENT

WITH THE UNITED NATIONS

LATEST RESOLUTION AGAINST

ISRAEL.

WE NEED TO STAND BEHIND

OUR FRIENDS IN ISRAEL, WHO

PRACTICE DEMOCRACY, NOT

TERRORISM.

Reporter: AS A

RESPONSE, SENATOR LINDSEY

GRAHAM, WHO OVERSEAS

FOREIGN OPERATION FINANCES

PROPOSED A BILL ALONGSIDE

SENATOR CRUZ TO CUT

FUNDING TO THE U.N.

U.S. TAXPAYERS COVER MORE

THAN A FIFTH OF THAT

ANNUAL BUDGET.

IT WENT UP TWO MONTHS

AGO.

AND I TOLD THE INCOMING

ADMINISTRATION, IF IN THE

LAST DAYS OF THE OBAMA

ADMINISTRATION YOU PASS A

RESOLUTION CONDEMNING

ISRAEL, TAKING THAT OUT OF

ALL OF THE ISSUES IN THE

MIDDLE EAST, YOU'LL RUN

AFFILE OF SENATOR GRAHAM.

Reporter: SENATOR

GRAHAM IS SUPPORTIVE OF

TRUMP'S PROMISES FOR

CONSERVATIVE REFORM.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS HE

WANTS TO REBUILD THE

MILITARY, COUNT ME IN.

HE WASN' WANTS TO REDO THE TAX

CODE.

COUNT ME IN.

HE WANTS TO PUT

CONSERVATIVE JUDGES ON THE

SUPREME COURT.

COUNT ME IN.

Reporter: ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON, REPORTING FOR

"THE BRODY FILE."

David: ABIGAIL

ROBERTSON HERE AN AND "THE

BRODY FILE."

ALL RIGHT, WHEN WE COME

BACK, WHAT WE JUST TALKED

ABOUT, MICHAEL WARE.

FAITH, PRESIDENT OBAMA,

AND FRUSTRATION, ALL IN A

NEW BOOK.

BRODY FILE."

TIME TO TALK WITH MICHAEL

WARE.

ACTUALLY, JENNIFER WISHON

IS RIGHT HERO IN THE "B"

BLOCK WITH THAT STORY.

HE HAS A NEW BOOK OUT

CALLED "RECLAIMING HOPE."

IT IS KIND OF A PLAYOFF OF

THE AUDACITY OF HOPE.

REMEMBER PRESIDENT OBAMA'S

MEMOIR, OR AT LEAST ONE OF

HIS BOOKS THAT HE PUT OUT.

MICHAEL WARE HAS SOME

INTERESTING TAKES ON WHAT

IT IS LIKE TO BE A

PRO-LIFE DEMOCRAT INSIDE

AN OBAMA ADMINISTRATION

THAT MIGHT NOT HAVE BEEN

AS FRIENDLY TO PROLIFERS,

AND OVERALL FOLKS OF A

DIFFERENT FAITH.

Reporter: MICHAEL

WARE WAS ONLY 19 WHEN HE

SERVED AS AN INTERN FOR

BARACK OBAMA IN 2008.

THE GREATEST HONOR IN

MY LIFE.

I MEAN IT WAS -- TO BE

THERE, TO BE IN THE THICK

OF THINGS.

Reporter: LATER HE

WOULD WORK IN OBAMA'S

OFFICE OF FAITH-BASED

PARTNERS.

AND HE HANDLED FAITH

OUTREACHES FOR THE

PRESIDENT'S RE-ELECTION

CAMPAIGNMENT ICAMPAIGN. IT LED TO A

WILD RIDE, ESPECIALLY FOR

A PRESIDENT WHO'S MORAL

AND RELIGIOUS VIEWS

ALTERED GREATLY.

HE TALKS ABOUT THE LESSONS

HE LEARNED IN HIS NEW

BOOK, "RECLAIMING HOPE."

> THE CONTRACEPTION

MANDATE, WHAT WAS THAT

CONVERSATION, DEBATE, LIKE

IN YOUR OFFICE?

IT WAS LIKE THIS

LOOMING THING.

Reporter: AFTER

OBAMACARE BECAME LAW, THE

WHITE HOUSE FACED THE

DECISION OF WHETHER TO

ALLOW CHRISTIAN EMPLOYERS

AN EXEMPTION WHEN IT CAME

TO PROVIDING INSURANCE FOR

CONTRACEPTION AND

ABORTION-INDUCING DRUGS.

IT WAS EXTREMELY TENSE.

IT WAS YEARS OF MY LIFE,

YEARS OF ADVOCATES' LIVES

THAT WERE TRYING TO BE

ERNEST AND GOOD-FAITH

ADVOCATES IN THE WHITE

HOUSE, AND THE

ADMINISTRATION MADE THE

WRONG DECISION RIGHT OUT

OF THE GATE.

AND YOU CAN TELL THAT THEY

MADE THE WRONG DECISION

BECAUSE THEY REVIVEDED IT

OVER A DOZEN TIMES SINCE

THEY MADE IT.

TO ME, IT BECAME CLEAR

THAT A MORE AGGRESSIVE

APPROACH WAS TAKEN THAN

NECESSARY, AND PART OF THE

REASON FOR THAT WAS TO

STOKE POLITICAL CONFLICT.

Reporter: IN OTHER

WORDS, IT ALL CAME DOWN TO

POLITICS.

OBAMA ADVOCATES KNEW THAT

STOKING THIS THAT MITT

ROMNEY WOULD CERTAINLY

OPPOSE, WOULD ALLOW THEM

TO FABRICATE A WAR ON

WOMEN.

AFTER THE BOTCHED

RELIGIOUS EXEMPTION,

THINGS WERE NEVER THE SAME

BETWEEN THE PRESIDENT AND

RELIGIOUS LEADERS.

> A LOT OF EVANGELICALS

VOTED FOR THE PRESIDENT IN

2008, THINKING THAT HE

SUPPORTED TRADITIONAL

MARRIAGE AND CIVIL UNION.

President Obama: I

BELIEVE THAT MARRIAGE IS

THE UNION BETWEEN A MAN

AND A WOMAN.

NOW, FOR ME AS A

CHRISTIAN --

[APPLAUSE]

President Obama: --

FOR ME AS A CHRISTIAN IS

ALSO A SACRED UNION.

GOD IS IN THE MIX.

HE TOLD THE FORUM THAT

GOD WAS IN THE MIX WHEN HE

ANNOUNCED HIS EVOLUTION.

HE BROUGHT UP THE GOLDEN

RULE, WHICH THE GOLDEN

RULE HAS BEEN AROUND FOR A

LONG TIME.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT CHANGED

IN THE APPLICATION OF THE

GOLDEN RULE, FROM WHEN HE

HAD ONE POSITION IN 2008

TO WHEN HE, QUOTE,

UNQUOTE, EVOLVED IN 2012.

Reporter: LATER DAVID

AXELROD REVEALED IT WAS

ALL A CAMPAIGN CONCOCTION.

PRESIDENT OBAMA ALWAYS

SUPPORTED GAY MARRIAGE,

BUT KNEW HIS POSITION WERE

LESSEN HIS CHANCES OF

WINNING IN '08.

> PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS

HAD HIS FAITH CHALLENGED

PROBABLY MORE THAN ANY

OTHER PRESIDENT IN

HISTORY.

WAS THAT A CONSTANT THORN

IN YOUR SIDE.

> YEAH.I HOPE WHEN PEOPLE ARE

SENDING AROUND THESE CHAIN

E-MAILS, THAT THERE WAS A

MUSLIM PRAYING ON THE

WHITE HOUSE LAWN --

SOMEBODY HAS TO DEAL WITH

THEM, AND I HAVE TO DEAL

WITH THEM.

Reporter: WARE

REGRETS CHRISTIANS DIDN'T

DO MORE TO ENCOURAGE OBAMA

IN HIS FAITH.

MY SORT OF PROBLEM WAS

IT SEEMS THE STANDARD WAS

BEING APPLIED TO HIM THAT

FOLKS DON'T APPLY TO

PEOPLE IN THEIR OWN

CONGREGATION.

IF YOU DON'T AGREE WITH

SOMEONE IN YOUR

CONGREGATION ON A

POLITICAL ISSUE, OR IF YOU

DON'T THINK THEY'RE DOING

THINGS EXACTLY RIGHT, YOU

DON'T KICK THEM OUT OF

CHURCH.

YOU TRY TO BUILD THEM UP

IN THEIR FAITH.

Reporter: SO HOW DOES

AMERICA RECLAIM HOPE?

YOU CAN HAVE ALL KINDS

OF THINGS TO HOPE FOR, BUT

I WANT TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE

TO THINK ABOUT WHERE THEIR

HOPE IS PLACED WHEN

EVERYTHING ELSE FALLS

SHORT.

WHAT CAN THEY COUNT ON?

FOR ME THAT HAS BEEN

JESUS.

WHEN YOUR HOPE IS IN SOLID

GROUND, THEN ALL KINDS OF

OPPORTUNITIES AND

POSSIBILITIES OPEN UP.

YOU'RE ABLE TO LOOK FOR

WHERE GOD IS OPERATING IN

THE WORLD, EVEN IN

POLITICS.

POLITICS IS NOT THE ONE

AREA OF LIFE THAT CAN'T BE

AFFECTED BY THE KINGDOM OF

GOD.

JUST IMAGINE IF WE HAD A

COUNTRY FULL OF PEOPLE WHO

WERE GROUNDED IN THE HOPE

OF CHRIST, AND THAT THAT

HOPE PROPELLED THEM TO

LOVE THEIR NEIGHBOR WELL.

David: JENNIFER

WISHON AND MICHAEL WARE ON

"THE BRODY FILE".

> WHEN WE COME BACK,

TIME TO MEET THE

INFLUENCERS.

INSIDE THE WEST WING WITH

DONALD TRUMP, WHEN WE COME

BACK.

BRODY FILE."

LOOK, A LOT OF BIG STUFF

GOING DOWN IN THE WEST

WING.

THE BRODY FILE, CBN NEWS,

WE'RE ALL GOING TO BE ON

THIS.

WE AIN'T PLAYING.

YOU KNOW OUR MOTO, AND

WE'RE GOING TO HAVE THE

INSIDE SCOOP FROM THE WEST

WING.

IN ORDER TO GET THE INSIDE

SCOOP, WE NEED TO HEAR

FROM THE INFLUENCERS.

AND WE'VE GOT THE CONTENT

AND WE'VE GOT THE PACKAGE

RIGHT HERE.

AND IT IS SO HIP AND

SWANKY, CHECK IT OUT.

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.

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.

President Trump:

REINCE PRIEBUS IS REALLY A

STAR.

David: HE WILL HAVE

THE JOB OF TELLING DONALD

TRUMP NO, AND GOOD LUCK

WITH THAT.

HE KNOWS WHAT CAN AND

CAN'T BE DONE, BUT TRUMP

LISTENING IS ANOTHER

MATTER.

KELLYANNE CONWAY IS THE

TRUMP WHISPER.

WHISPERER.

AND THEN THERE IS STEVE

BANNON, THE IDEALIST.

HE IS THE OUTSIDE THE BOX,

ANTI-ESTABLISHMENT

THINKER, PUSHING TRUMP TO

BE DIFFERENT.

THAT PART OF IT SHOULDN'T

BE TOO HARD.

BUT WE'RE NOT DONE WITH

THE INFLUENCER LIST.

ENTER D.C.'S LATEST POWER

COUPLE: JARED KUSHNER AND

I'VIVANKA TRUMP.

KUSHNER WILL PLAY A LARGE

ROLE IN TAX REFORM.

AND AS FOR FIRST DAUGHTER,

IVANKA, SHE HAS THE EAR OF

HER FATHER AT ALL TIMES.

HE RESPECTS HER,

ESPECIALLY ON THE

SO-CALLED WOMEN'S ISSUES.

IT WILL BE WORTH WATCHING

HOW MUCH SHE PUSHES AND

HOW MUCH HER FATHER

RESPONDS.

THEY ARE THE INFLUENCERS.

> COMING UP, JENNA

BROWDER LOOKING INTO THE

FAITH OF DONALD TRUMP.

WELL, NOT EXACTLY.

IT IS MORE LIKE HOW THE

FAITH OF THIS

ADMINISTRATION IS KIND OF

PLAYING OUT IN THE FIRST

WEEK ALONE.

BACK IN A MOMENT.

BRODY FILE."

HEY, LOOK, IN ONE WEEK

ALONE PRESIDENT TRUMP --

IT'S HARD TO SAY THAT --

PRESIDENT TRUMP, REPEAT IT

THREE TIMES -- ANYHOW,

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS REALLY

KIND OF INJECTEDED FAITH

INTO THE EQUATION IN JUST

HIS FIRST WEEK.

WHAT DO I MEAN BY THAT?

YES, THERE HAS BEEN THE

MEXICO CITY POLICY, IN

TERMS OF THE

REINSTATEMENT, BUT THE

FACT THAT JESUS' NAME IS

BEING MENTIONED, THE

BIBLE, GOD, ALL OF THIS

STUFF GOING DOWN IN THE

FIRST WEEK, AND JENNA

BROWDER HAS MORE ON THAT

STORY.

Reporter: AN

IMPORTANT, LONG-STANDING

TRADITION AT THE NATIONAL

CATHEDRAL, A SPECIAL

PRAYER SERVICE FOR THE NEW

PRESIDENT AND THOALS THOSE

CLOSEST TO HIM.

RULER IN ALL THINGS IN

HEAVEN AND EARTH, GRANT TO

THE PRESIDENT, VICE

PRESIDENT, AND MEMBERS OF

THE CABINET WISDOM AND

GRACE.

Reporter: AND YOU CAN

SEE THE WEIGHT OF

RESPONSIBILITY WEARING ON

FACES, INCLUDING FIRST

LADY MELANIA TRUMP, WHO

WAS MOVED TO TEARS DURING

A PERFORMANCE OF "HOW

GREAT THOU ART."

* HOW GREAT THOU ART

Reporter: FOR

PRESIDENT TRUMP, THIS

DISPLAY OF FAITH GOES WELL

BEYOND THE CHURCH WALLS.

THY KINGDOM COME, THY

WILL BE DONE.

THE PSALMISTS DECLARED,

LET YOUR FAVOR BE UPON

THIS ONE NATION UNDER GOD.

Reporter: PAULA

WHITE, ALONG WITH A RECORD

NUMBER OF EVANGELICAL

LEADERS, TOOK PART IN HIS

SWEARING IN CEREMONY.

BLESSED THOSE WHO ARE

PURE IN HEART, FOR THEY

WILL SEE GOD.

GOD BLESSES THOSE WHO WORK

FOR PEACE BECAUSE THEY

WILL BE CALLED CHILDREN OF

GOD.

MR. PRESIDENT, IN THE

BIBLE RAIN IS A SIGN OF

GOD'S BLESSING.

AND IT STARTED TO RAIN,

MR. PRESIDENT, WHEN YOU

CAME TO THE PLATFORM.

Reporter: AND TRUMP

HIMSELF MENTIONED FAITH

SEVERAL TIMES.

President Trump: THE

BIBLE TELLS US HOW GOOD

AND PLEASANT IT IS WHEN

GOD'S PEOPLE LIVE TOGETHER

IN UNITY.

WE WILL BE PROTECTED BY

THE GREAT MEN AND WOMEN OF

OUR MILITARY AND LAW

ENFORCEMENT.

AND, MOST IMPORTANTLY, WE

WILL BE PROTECTED BY GOD.

Reporter: AS THE

SWEARING IN OF HIS SENIOR

STAFF, HE, ONCE AGAIN,

TALKED ABOUT GOD.

President Trump: WE

ARE GOING TO DO SOME GREAT

THINGS OVER THE NEXT EIGHT

YEARS.

[APPLAUSE]

President Trump:

RIGHT?

WE WILL FACE MANY

CHALLENGES, BUT WITH THE

FAITH IN EACH OTHER AND

THE FAITH IN GOD, WE WILL

GET THE JOB DONE.

[APPLAUSE]

Reporter: WHITE HOUSE

CHIEF-OF-STAFF AND

EVANGELICAL REINCE PRIEBUS

ALSO QUOTED SCRIPTURE.

ISAIAH 40: 31: "THOSE

WHO HOPE IN THE LORD WILL

RENEW THEIR STRENGTH.

THEY WILL SOAR ON WINGS

LIKE EAGLES.

THEY WILL RUN AND NOT GROW

WEARY, AND THEY WILL WALK

AND NOT BE FAINT."

SAVIOR *

WORDS FROM THE BIBLE, AND

MUSIC TO THE EARS OF

EVANGELICALS WHO APPLY

HOPE FOR THIS

David: JENNA BROWDER

HERE ON THE BRODY FILE.

WE'RE BACK IN A MOMENT.

BRODY FILE."

> ALL RIGHT, TIME NOW

FOR PROBABLY THE MOST

RIVETING PART OF THE SHOW,

AT LEAST I THINK SO

BECAUSE IT IS TIME FOR

BRODY FILE COMMENTARY.

> WELL, JENNIFER

MENTIONED THIS AT THE TOP

OF THE SHOW: IT IS A NEW

DAY IN WASHINGTON, D.C.

WHEN IT COMES TO PRESIDENT

TRUMP AND THE MAINSTREAM

MEDIA.

IMAGINE THE FACES OF THE

ASSOCIATED PRESS, ABC,

NBC, CBS, ALL OF THEM IN

THE FRONT ROW OF THE FIRST

PRESS BRIEFING BY SEAN SEAN

SPICER, AND THE NEW YORK

POST IS CALLED FIRST AND

JENNIFER WISHON WITH CBN

NEWS CALLED SECOND.

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS AND

ALL OF THOSE OTHER

MAINSTREAM NETWORKS MUST

HAVE BEEN WONDERING WHAT

IN THE WORLD IS GOING ON?

AFTER THEY WERE REVIVED

WITH SMELLING SALTS, THEY

HAVE A GOOD REASON TO

WONDER WHAT IS GOING ON

BECAUSE IT IS INDEED A NEW

DAY.

DONALD TRUMP'S FOLKS HAVE

PROMISED SINCE DAY ONE

THEY WOULD DO THINGS

DIFFERENTLY IN THE PRESS

BRIEFING ROOM.

IT WOULDN'T BE ALL ABOUT

THE FOLKS IN THE FRONT TWO

ROWS.

I BELIEVE THIS IS WHERE I

SAY, WE AIN'T PLAYING.

> ALL RIGHT, THAT DOES

IT FOR THIS WEEK.

GOD BLESS YOU UNTIL NEXT

TIME.

HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK.
