BLOGYou're Hired! The New American President

By Bob Trent Posted on: | November 15, 2016

In case you hadn’t heard, Donald Trump will be the new American president.

In what could be the biggest upset in the history of American presidential elections, billionaire real-estate developer and TV star Donald Trump defeated former Hillary Clinton who was “retired” after spending nearly her entire adult life in politics. The mere suggestion of a Trump presidency was a years-long punchline delivered by opposing candidates (Democrat and Republican alike), celebrities, and even “news” and newsy media. Sec. Clinton – supposedly the “most qualified” candidate to ever run for president – was riding the wave of inevitability straight to the White House, we were told.

Not so, as we now know.

Craig Osten and Kellie Fiedorek join Freedom Matters to discuss how the results of the election will impact religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and student privacy.

Craig Osten is Senior Director of Research & Grant Writing for Alliance Defending Freedom and co-authored The ACLU vs. America: Exposing the Agenda to Redefine Moral Values with ADF CEO Alan Sears.

Kellie Fiedorek is legal counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom. She has defended marriage and religious liberty against legal attacks. She has provided sound legal advice on legislation pertaining to First Amendment freedoms and marriage and family to organizations, legislative bodies, attorneys general, and governors.
