THANKS FOR JOINING US FOR

CBN

NEWSWATCH. I'M MARK MARTIN.

THE

SITUATION IN NORTH KOREA IS

GETTING

MORE INTENSE.

NORTH KOREA HAS TESTED A

MASSIVE BOMB

AND NOW READY TO TEST

ANOTHER

MISSILE.

NORTH KOREA IS READY --

TO LAUNCH

ANOTHER MISSILE AT 50 KILI

TONS.

THIS IS FIVE TIMES THE SIZE

OF THE

BOMB IN NAGASAKI.

THIS CLAIMED THE TEST WAS A

HYDROGEN

BOMB OFF ITS EASTERN COAST.

DEFENSE SECRETARY JAMES

MATTIS

REPEATED EARLIER WARNING

THAT THE

U.S. IS PREPARED.

ANY THREAT AGAINST GUAM

OR ALLIES

WILL RESPOND.

SAYING NORTH KOREA MUST

BE

STOPPED.

IF THEY HAVE DEVELOPED A

HYDROGEN

BOMB IS A SERIOUS ESCALATION

IN THEIR

ABILITY TO COMMIT MASS ACTS

OF MURDER.

IT IS GOING TO CALL FOR

FURTHER

SERIOUS STEPS TO PREVENT

NORTH KOREA

FROM USING THOSE WEAPONS.

SANCTIONS AND OTHER

MEASURES HAVE

BEEN TRIED FOR DECADES BUT

HASN'T

STOPPED THE NORTH.

PRESIDENT TRUMP TWEETING

SOUTH KOREA

AS I TOLD THEM IT WOULD NOT

WORK.

DESPITE ITS ACTIONS, THE

NORTH DOES

NOT WANT WAR.

I DON'T THINK NORTH KOREA

IS READY

TO LAUNCH ITS WEAPONS YET

AND WOULD

RESULT IN DISTRACTION AND

THE U.S.

ALLIES AND WOULD BE VERY

COSTLY AS

WELL FOR THEM. IT'S

REMAINING A

STATUS QUO AS A STANDOFF.

TRUMP SAID ON THE

PARTNERS IN

CHINA.

THE UNITED STATES IS

CONSIDERING

OTHER OPTIONS STOPPING ALL

TRADE

DOING BUSINESS WITH NORTH

KOREA.

THIS NEEDS TO BE CUTOFF

ECONOMICALLY.

IT'S UNACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOR.

SAYING IT IS UNACCEPTABLE

AND

UNFAIR.

THE UNITED NATION IS

PLANNING TO HAVE

A MEETING WITH NORTH KOREA.

HERE AT HOME CHURCHES

ACROSS THE

COUNTRY PRAYED FOR THE

VICTIMS OF

HURRICANE HARVEY SUNDAY.

PRESIDENT TRUMP ISSUED A

PROCLAMATION

DECLARING IT A DAY OF PRAYER

SAYING

THIS IS NOT ONLY THE TIME TO

SEEK

GOD'S HELP BUT TO GIVE

THANKS FOR HIS

MERCY.

THIS IS A TIME OF PRAYER

FOR THOSE

IN NEED.

THE TIME FOR PRAYER FOR

THOSE WHO

HAVE BEEN LOST.

IT'S ALSO A PRAYER OF

THANKSGIVING,

TO GOD ALMIGHTY FOR UNITING

US AS A

NATION AND HELPING US

RESPOND

TOGETHER.

SHEPHERD SAID THERE WERE

MORE THAN

1,000 PEOPLE THERE TO HELP

TO CLEAN

UP DAMAGED HOMES.

A HOME THAT WAS FLOODED WITH

2 FEET

OF WATER.

VOLUNTEERS ARE A SIGN OF

GRACE AND

LOVE IN THIS DIFFICULT TIME.

GOING TO THE HOUSE WAS

THE HARDEST

JUST BECAUSE, I MEAN, THE

MEMORIES,

BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT

SHOWED UP.

THEY MADE IT BETTER.

THEY HELPED US THROUGH IT.

HONESTLY, I DIDN'T HAVE TO

LIFT A

FINISHING -- FINGER IN THAT

HOUSE TO

DO ANYTHING.

I SAW THE GENEROSITY AND

GRACE

FROM PEOPLE.

IT WAS AN AMAZING THING.

THE CHURCH IS ALSO

PROVIDING FOOD

AND SHELTER TO THE VICTIMS.

PRESIDENT TRUMP SIGNED A

PROCLAMATION AFTER THE DAY

OF PRAYER

ASKING FATHER TO PRAY FOR

HIM AND THE

NATION.

FATHER, YOU SAY IF YOU

HEAR BEING

CALLED BY NAME THAT YOU WILL

FORGIVE

THEIR LAND.

FATHER, I THANK YOU THAT WE

HAVE A

PRESIDENT TRUMP WHO

BELIEVES IN THE

POWER OF PRAYER. WE THANK

VICE-PRESIDENT PENCE TO WORK

ALONGSIDE HIM. WE CALL FOR A

DAY OF

PRAYER THIS WEEKEND.

YOU CAN WATCH THE FULL

PRAYER AND

READ THE PROCLAMATION AT

CBNNEWS.COM.

ON SATURDAY PRESIDENT

TRUMP

VISITED A SHELTER IN TEXAS

LAST WEEK

VISITING VICTIMS OF HARVEY'S

FLOODS

ENCOURAGING FAMILIES WHO

HAVE LOST

EVERYTHING. HE HELPED SERVE

MEALS AT

THE SHELTERS AND THANKING

VOLUNTEERS

FOR THEIR HARD WORK AND

COMPASSION.

THE PRESIDENT ALSO VISITED

LAKE

CHARLES, LOUISIANA WHERE HE

MET WITH

LEGISLATORS. REPRESENTATIVE

HAGAN

JOINS US BY PHONE.

THANK YOU FOR JOINING US.

PRAISE GOD AND THE

AMERICAN PEOPLE

AND OUR PRESIDENT AND HIS

BEAUTIFUL

WIFE WHO HAS BLESSED US WITH

THEIR

PRAYER AND THEIR VERY

GENUINE SINCERE

EFFORT TO CONVEY TO US THAT

THEIR

LOVE AND THEIR COMPASSION

DOING THIS.

THIS WAS A DEVASTATING STORM

WITH SO

MANY SCORES OF THOUSANDS OF

AMERICANS, AND CHURCHES

ACROSS THE

LAND HAVE JOINED TOGETHER TO

HELP US

RECOVER QUICKLY ESPECIALLY

OUR

BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN

TEXAS.

REPRESENTATIVE HAGAN, SO

MUCH OF

THE FOCUS HAS BEEN ON TEXAS,

WHAT IS

THE SITUATION WITH

LOUISIANA?

LOUISIANA WAS PREPARED TO

TAKE THE

STORM AND THERE WERE MANY

ORGANIZED

AND READY TO RESPOND.

HOWEVER, THE STORM TOOK A

TURN JUST A

LITTLE BIT TO THE WEST. IT

HIT TEXAS

AND BACK INTO THE GULF AND

HIT TEXAS

AGAIN RIGHT ON THE BOREDER

WITH

LOUISIANA.

SO LOUISIANA WAS MORE

PREPARED IN

MUCH MORE RURAL AREAS THAT

IT WAS AN

IMPACT OF MUCH LESS LOSS ON

THE

PROPERTY.

ON TEXAS SIDE, THE

POPULATION WAS

DENSER.

AS SOON AS LOUISIANA WAS

SQUARED

AWAY, I WENT TO TEXAS ON

FRIDAY AND

PARTICIPATED IN RESCUE

OPERATIONS,

AND WITNESSED JUST A TRAGEDY

AND THE

PAIN AND THE LOSS.

BUT I ALSO WITNESSED THE UP

LIFTING

CHRISTIAN SPIRIT OF ALL THE

PEOPLE OF

TEXAS AND FROM ACROSS THE

COUNTRY

THAT HAD COME TOGETHER THERE

TO HELP

THEIR FELLOW AMERICANS OF

EVERY

"CREED" AND COLOR TO STAND

UP.

REPRESENTATIVE HAGAN, THE

NATION

HAS SEEN THOSE FOLKS WHO

HELPED THOSE

TRAPPED IN THE FLOODING.

WHO ARE THOSE FOLKS? AND

WHAT WAS

THEIR MOTIVATION?

WELL, THE MOTIVATION WAS

THE MEN

THAT I WAS WITH.

I WAS WITH A GROUP OF

RESCUERS AND

THE CAJUN NAVY.

THE RESCUERS WERE A MASSIVE

AND

RATHER WELL ORGANIZED WITH

COMMUNICATION ESTIMATES,

DISPATCHING,

ETC.

THE CAJUN NAVY IS

ESSENTIALLY EVERY

AMERICAN MAN AND WOMAN THAT

RESPONDED

WITH A HIGH WATER VEHICLE, A

LIFTED

VEHICLE LIKE I WAS IN A FIVE

TON ARMY

TRUCK WITH TIRES THEMSELVES

FOUR FEET

TALL THAT CAN GO THROUGH ANY

WATER

AND RESCUE SWIFTLY.

WE ARE RUNNING A LITTLE

SHORT ON

TIME, YOU SIT ON THE HOUSE

OF

SECURITY.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT NORTH KOREA

WITH A

HYDROGEN BOMB?

IT DOES, I DON'T THINK

THEY SHOULD

BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE. I

DON'T THINK

WE SHOULD BE REACTIVE, BUT

PROACTIVE.

THE STATE DEPARTMENT IN

COOPERATION

WITH THE NATIONS IN THE AREA

AS WE

PUT HEAVY SANCTIONS ON THEM.

BUT I THINK WE SHOULD BE

PREPARED FOR

A MASSIVE AND OVERWHELMING

CONVENTIONAL STRIKE TO STOP

THEM FROM

MOVING FURTHER.

I'M COMPLETELY IN SUPPORT OF

A

PREEMPTIVE FIRST STRIKE

AGAINST NORTH

KOREA.

ALL RIGHT.

REPRESENTATIVE HAGAN OF WEST

VIRGINIA, THANK YOU FOR YOUR

TIME.

THANK YOU, TOO.

THANK YOU AS WELL.

SEE HOW "OPERATION BLESSING"

STRIKES

BACK AND HOW IT RAISES HOPE

TO

VICTIMS OF THE HURRICANE.

WELCOME BACK TO NEWSWATCH.

WELCOME BACK TO NEWSWATCH.

SO MANY PEOPLE WERE TRAPPED

FROM

FLOODING IN TEXAS AND A HELP

FOR

VOLUNTEERS TO HELP THOSE

STRANDED.

HE FLEW INTO THE ZONE.

RESCUING MORE

THAN 400 PEOPLE AND SHOWING

NOT JUST

THOSE RESCUED BUT MORE.

THEY ARE SO COURAGEOUS

AND

GRATEFUL. I THOUGHT I KNEW

MY

COUNTRY, BUT I MET MY

COUNTRY LAST

WEEK. IT'S BEEN A BLESSING

TO SEE.

I WISH THE WHOLE WORLD COULD

SEE HOW

THESE PEOPLE HAVE GONE

THROUGH ALL OF

THIS.

THIS IS A MAJOR LOSS IN

THE

PROCESS.

WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS?

BECAUSE WE LOVE JESUS AND

THE

PEOPLE AND IF YOU HAVE THE

OPPORTUNITY AND PRESENT

YOURSELF, YOU

CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

AMEN, CBN'S "OPERATION

BLESSING"

IS HELPING THOSE VICTIMS OF

HURRICANE

HARVEY.

PASTOR TAKES US TO THE MOST

DESPERATE

AREAS HELPING PEOPLE AND

THEIR

FAMILIES.

THERE IS A BOX OF DIAPERS

OUTSIDE.

WE ARE HERE AT THE

ABUNDANT LIFE

CHURCH IN AREA THAT HAS HAD

MORE RAIN

IN A STORM THAT IS JUST

INCREDIBLE.

IF YOU WALK AROUND HERE, YOU

WONDER

WHERE IS THE FLOOD AND IT'S

EVERYWHERE. MANY PEOPLE ARE

HERE

WAITING FOR THE FOOD AND

WATER THAT'S

ON OUR TRUCK.

THIS ABUNDANT LIFE CHURCH

IS A PIE

OF ACTIVITY.

EVERYBODY HERE HAS A STORY

OF HOW

THERE WAS WATER IN THEIR

HOME,

RESCUED FROM THEIR HOMES.

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE OF TRUE

HELP FROM

ABUNDANT LIFE.

IT'S AMAZING.

ALL THE FOOD AROUND ME IS

FROM

"OPERATION BLESSING".

ALL THE DONORS AND THE

SUPPORTERS.

IT'S AMAZING WHAT CAME OUT

OF OUR

TRUCK RIGHT NOW.

THERE IS HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE

HERE AND

TOMORROW MORNING THERE IS

GOING TO BE

EVEN MORE. WE HOPE WE

HAVEN'T RUN OUT

BY THEN.

WE ARE GOING TO KEEP THINGS

RUNNING

HERE AND HELP THESE FOLKS

THAT ARE

DOWN ON THEIR LUCK. LAST

WEEK WE WERE

IN TEXAS FIVE TIMES FOR

DISASTER

RELIEF, FOR TORNADOS, FLOODS.

THIS WAS THE MOTHER OF THEM

ALL. THE

BIGGEST RAINFALL IN THE

HISTORY OF

TEXAS.

THESE FOLKS HAVE FORMED A

HUMAN CHAIN

TO MOVE THESE BOXES FROM THE

PELLET

AND NOW THE HUMAN CHANGE

INTO THE

BUILDING AND PEOPLE WILL BE

COMING

HERE ALL AFTERNOON LATE INTO

THE

NIGHT AND EARLY TOMORROW

MORNING.

BUT THERE WILL BE A TIME

WHERE THERE

WON'T BE ANYTHING LEFT ON

THE

PALETTES AND TRUCKS.

WE HAVE TO KEEP THE TRUCKS

COMING

COMING UP, A RARE LOOK AT

THE SOFTER

SIDE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP.

LAURA TRUMP SHARES SOMETHING

HER FATHER IN LAW.

PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS SHOWN

HIS

SOFTER SIDE TO THE VICTIMS

OF

HURRICANE HARVEY. BUT THOSE

INSIDE

WILL TELL YOU HE'S ALWAYS

HAD A SOFT

SIDE. HIS DAUGHTER LAURA

TRUMP TALKS

ABOUT THE MAN SHE CALLS A

FAMILY MAN

AND A MAN OF GOD.

WITH SO MUCH ON FAKE

NEWS, LAURA

TRUMP IS COMING TO THE MEDIA

WITH HER

OWN ONLINE SHOW PRODUCED

RIGHT HERE

ON TRUMP TOWERS.

I TALKED WITH HER AND ASKED

HER WHAT

IT'S LIKE TO BE A TRUMP.

SOMEBODY PAINTED THIS AND

THAT AND

A SWAG MADE FOR US.

ALL OF THESE ITEMS IN OUR

OFFICES ARE

PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT THE

PRESIDENT. WE

ARE SO EXCITED DURING THE

CAMPAIGN

THAT THEY MADE THEM AND SENT

THEM IN

AND THEY ARE SO SPECIAL TO

US.

THIS IS THE TRUMP TOWER

OFFICE

WHERE SHE AND OTHERS

PREPARED THEIR

SEGMENTS.

HOW DID THIS IDEA COME

ABOUT?

WELL, I HAVE A BACKGROUND

IN

TELEVISION NEWS. NOW THAT

I'M WORKING

ON THE CAMPAIGN ON A DAILY

BASIS WE

WERE PUT OUT A NEWSLETTER

EVERY WEEK

TO INFORM PEOPLE WHAT THE

PEOPLE DID

BECAUSE IF YOU WATCH THE

MEDIA, YOU

GET DIFFERENT INFORMATION .

WE WANT

TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERYBODY

UNDERSTAND WHAT GREAT THINGS

HAVE

HAPPENED.

CALL IT TRUMP PROPAGANDA.

WHAT DO YOU SAY TO THEM?

I THINK THAT'S

RIDICULOUS. THESE

ARE CONCRETE THINGS

HAPPENING EVERY

WEEK BY MY FATHER -IN-LAW

AND THE

ADMINISTRATION.

IF YOU HAD TO USE 1 WORD

TO

DESCRIBE THE MAINSTREAM

MEDIA, WHAT

WOULD IT BE?

LIARS.

IT'S REALLY SAD BECAUSE I

WORKED IN

TELEVISION NEWS FOR A LONG

TIME AND I

GOT SUCH A DIFFERENT VIEW OF

THINGS.

WHEN IT COMES TO RECENT

VIOLENCE

IN CHARLOTTESVILLE.

THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE

UPSET

WITH YOUR FATHER-IN-LAW AND

THEY ARE

CALLING HIM A RACIST, A

BIGOT, IS

THAT TRUE?

NO.

THE MEDIA CAN TAKE SOMETHING

SIGNIFICANT AND CHANGE IT

AROUND.

MY FATHER-IN-LAW SAYS THERE

IS NO

ROOM FOR RACISM AND HATRED.

SHE SAYS SHE'S LOST

FRIENDS DUE

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION.

HAVE YOU SAID YOU LOST

FRIENDSHIPS?

I THINK IT'S THE NATURE

OF THE

BEAST WHEN YOU GET INVOLVED

IN

POLITICS.

HALF THE PEOPLE LOVE YOU AND

HALF THE

PEOPLE HATE YOU.

HOW DO YOU DEAL WITH THE

TOUGHNESS

DAY-TO-DAY?

REALLY, I PRAY DAY AND

NIGHT AND

FOR THIS CAMPAIGN AND FOR

THE SAFETY

IN OUR FAMILY.

FACE IT, THERE WERE SOME

SCARY TIMES

FOR SURE.

I PRAY EVERY NIGHT THAT

THIS

PRESIDENT LEADS US.

I HEARD FROM MANY PEOPLE WHO

SAID, WE

ARE PRAYING FOR YOU, PRAYING

FOR YOUR

FATHER-IN-LAW AND THE ENTIRE

FAMILY.

I FEEL GOD PLAYED A HUGE

ROLE IN THIS

AND IN THIS FIGHT AND

ULTIMATELY

WINNING WOULD HAPPEN.

I REALLY FELT THAT THE POWER

OF

PRAYER WAS VERY REAL IN THIS

ELECTION

AND MADE A HUGE IMPACT.

SHE SAYS HER FATHER

SHARES THAT

SAME FATE.

WHEN IT COMES TO TRUMP, HIS

MESSAGE,

WHAT DO YOU THINK IT IS?

HE'S A VERY STRAIGHT

FORWARD GUY

AND DOESN'T SUGAR COAT

THINGS. HE

CARES SO MUCH ABOUT THE

PEOPLE OF

THIS COUNTRY.

HE'S A FAMILY MAN, HE'S A

MAN OF GOD.

HE'S ALWAYS, HIS FAITH HAS

ALWAYS

BEEN IMPORTANT TO HIM.

LAURA WHO IS MARRIED TO

ERIC TRUMP

IS EXPECTING THEIR FIRST

CHILD THIS

MONTH.

AND THIS INVOLVEMENT TAKES

ON A

SPECIAL MEANING.

WHEN WE ARE TOGETHER, WE

DON'T

EVEN THINK ABOUT ALL THE

OUTSIDE

STUFF. IT'S REALLY SUCH AN

IMPORTANT

TIME FOR US TO AS A FAMILY

TO JUST

TALK ABOUT THINGS FAMILIES

TALK ABOUT

EVERY SINGLE DAY AND MAYBE

WE'LL TAKE

A TRIP TOGETHER AND THAT WE

ARE ABLE

TO BE ON THAT LEVEL.

IT'S VERY NORMAL AND I'M

SURE MANY

PEOPLE ARE SURPRISED TO HEAR

THAT.

THEY HAVE CREATED A LOT

OF

MEMORIES HERE AT THE WHITE

HOUSE AND

SHE TOLD ME HOW THEY BREAK

THE NEWS

OF THEIR PREGNANCY TO THE

FAMILY ON

INAUGURATION DAY SITTING AT

THE

FORMAL DINING ROOM TABLE.

THANK YOU. WE'LL BE RIGHT

BACK.

BACK.

> FINAL TODAY CBN JOINED A

DAY OF

NATIONAL PRAYER ON FACEBOOK

HEAVENLY FATHER, OUR

RESCUE AND

OUR STRENGTH AND THOSE IN

TROUBLE
