Like the rest of us, Liberty University President Rev. Jerry Falwell, Jr. is immensely relieved that Democrat Barack Obama is out of the White House. Thankfully, he was replaced by Donald Trump, who pledged to defend and promote the rights of faithful Christians, and has thus far made good on that promise.
Falwell recently analyzed Trump’s speech that he made about veterans in Washington, and compared it to similar speeches given by his predecessor Obama. Falwell commented to Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro about what Trump is doing for the Christian faith, as opposed to the damage done by Obama.
Said Falwell to Pirro, “What I really appreciated was he’s not bashful about talking about faith. He’s all about religious liberty. He’s about God. He’s interested in defending the liberties of Christians, not just Muslims, like our last president. And I never heard a single liberal attack any Muslim church for not having gay weddings and for not honoring the rights of women and transgenders. But this president has gone the extra mile to honor people of faith. And I even appreciate when he attacked – the left is melting down. It’s incredible to watch how they still haven’t gotten over how Donald Trump won.”
He added, “I was just so impressed how the president never misses the opportunity to honor our veterans — especially on July fourth — to honor law enforcement. To talk about the things that got him elected … bringing back jobs, striking fair trade deals with other countries, national security, immigration, jobs, all those things.”
Jerry also talked about Trump’s tweets, which liberals have blown up into a controversy. Said Falwell, “When he hits [his critics] back on Twitter, I actually appreciate that. We’ve gone back to a bold leader who’s willing to speak his mind — like you Judge Jeanine.” Do you agree with Falwell about Trump versus Obama?
