BP This Week: Transgenders Banned from the Military

With a stroke of his Twitter account, President Trump promised to ban transgender individuals from service in the military, a return to the policy as it was before the Obama administration. Predictably, the announcement has sparked a lot of outrage. Our hosts discuss why the move might have been the right action carried out in the wrong way and for the wrong reasons.

The president has also just filled the long-vacant state department Office of International Religious Freedom, nominating Kansas governor, Sam Brownback. John Stonestreet and Ed Stetzer talk about why this nomination matters, and what we can expect from governor Brownback, himself a deeply religious man.
