Bonice Thomas is angry at Prime Minister Trudeau. Her brother, Robert Hall, was decapitated along with fellow Canadian John Ridsdel after being kidnapped by the Philippine terror group Abu Sayaff.

Bonice Thomas and international security expert T. Lee Humphrey will share their views on Saturday’s show.
