Penny Young Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America, joins Ben Domenech in studio to give the perspective from evangelical women who voted for Trump, and what they expect from the next four years. Nance is the author of “Feisty and Feminine: A Rallying Cry for Conservative Women.”
In some ways, evangelicals had to settle for Trump as a defender for the things the believe, even if he does not practice those beliefs. “We’re looking for a fighter, and wouldn’t it be shocking if we had a thrice-married, playboy, nominal Presbyterian who ended up being our champion,” Nance said. “I hope that’s the case and I’m going to do everything I can to make him successful.”
Nance discussed the Clinton campaign’s poor use of celebrities and gender politics to win over women voters. And later in the hour, the potential fights the Trump administration will face with transgender bathrooms and other hot button issues.
“There are over 800,000 registered sexual predators in the United States. I’m not worried about a young man whose grappling with his sexuality,” she said. “I am very worried about the fact that you have sexual predators who will use any excuse to get to women and children.”
