The CBN News Daily Rundown


The State of the Union Address is an American tradition and constitutional responsibility. 

How did President Trump perform?

What can we make of a rebuffed handshake, paired down introduction, and infamous ripping of the speech?

Also, how can Democrats rebound from the bad week they're having?

CBN News National Security Correspondent Eric Philips and Faith Nation Anchor John Jessup join me on the CBN News Daily Rundown to break it all down.


The Iowa Democratic Party says they will release most of the results from the Iowa Caucus around 5 pm EST, only hours before the president is set to give his State of the Union address which will shift the focus of the mainstream media. At this point, Democratic presidential candidates have already moved on to New Hampshire. CBN News chief political analyst David Brody says the Iowa fiasco could completely change the caucus system. He's on today's CBN News Daily Rundown.

Democrats in Virginia are wasting no time turning the Commonwealth’s laws Blue.

“This is the first time since the early 90’s that Republicans haven’t had a stop-gap, and what I mean by that is that either one chamber or the other was in republican control, or the governor’s mansion was in republican control. Well now it’s all blue and so Republicans can do nothing but sit there and let this legislation go through,” said senior Washington correspondent Jennifer Wishon on today’s CBN News Daily Rundown.

Wishon explains some of the laws currently on Governor Northam’s desk and takes a look at how the state got to this point.

One in five adults struggle with mental illness each year, and yet it's a topic the Church is often slow to wade into.

Children are a gift from God but consider, if you will,  the image of a child crying in the corner because no one wants him or her.  This is a stark reality.  The list of orphaned children is long, good "forever homes" are hard to find and the clock is ticking.  Children only have 8 years from birth before their chances of adoption plummet significantly.  All of that pierced the hearts of a couple in San Antonio, TX who decided to do something about it.  They're starting a unique housing effort called Liv San Antonio.  CBN Senior Washington Correspondent Jennifer Wishon traveled to Texas to learn about the Christian based effort.  Click play to hear about the "God glue" that brought this story together.


Today is International Holocaust Remembrance Day and the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz. But as the world commemorates the tragedy of the Holocaust, anti-Semitism is on the rise.

Stahl is on today's CBN News Daily Rundown.

There are still a lot of unknowns about the new Coronavirus, but CBN News health correspondent Lorie Johnson helps put in context some of what we do know:

“550 people have been infected so far and 17 have died…you think about people who have died from the flu this season alone, since October, 6,600, 39 of those were children,” Johnson said on today’s CBN News Daily Rundown.

CBN News senior international correspondent George Thomas points out that the way China is handling this outbreak is unprecedented.

“All across Wuhan the streets are deserted, trains are not operating, planes are not flying, it’s like a ghost town…it will be interesting to see how effective this lock-down is and whether China is able to stop the spread of this virus…my understanding is that this is the first time a country has imposed such a major ban on transportation links out of a capital city,” Thomas said.
