White House spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended the administration’s birth control decision and was asked repeatedly on Friday (October 6) to explain President Trump’s “calm before the storm” remark.

After discussing Iran and North Korea with U.S. military leaders on Thursday (October 5), President Donald Trump posed for a photo with them before dinner and declared the moment “the calm before the storm.”

Trump’s administration on Friday undermined requirements under the Obamacare law that employers provide insurance to cover women’s birth control, keeping a campaign pledge that pleased his conservative Christian supporters.

Administration officials said effective immediately two new federal rules will let any non-profit or for-profit entity make religious or moral objections to obtain an exemption from the law’s contraception mandate. The changes also let publicly traded companies obtain a religious exemption.

Trump, who criticized the birth control mandate in last year’s election campaign, won strong support from conservative Christian voters. The Republican president signed an executive order in May asking for rules that would allow faith-based groups to deny their employees insurance coverage for services they oppose on religious grounds.
