This week, over on the Election Central Web site, the main story takes a look at President Trump’s latest executive order that focuses on free speech protections and ensuring the rights of religious liberty.

Last Thursday, President Trump signed an executive order “promoting free speech and religious liberty.” In theory, the order will allow religious groups to become more politically active without facing repercussions from the government. In his remarks, Trump also said that religious discrimination would not be tolerated, though of course this is already guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution.
