President Donald Trump was “very clear” who the culprits were in Charlottesville, as he called them out by name, and he “does not have a racist bone in his body,” Jerry Falwell Jr. said Monday.
“I know him well,” Falwell, the president of Liberty University and son of evangelist Jerry Falwell, told Fox News’ “Fox & Friends” program.
“He loves all people. He has helped so well to help minorities in inner cities. To bring jobs back to them. African-American [jobs] have skyrocketed since he has become president.”
Trump is also “doing all the right things for the people that are in need, the minorities,” Falwell continued.
Further, said Falwell, Trump called out the “Nazis, the white supremacists, the KKK members by name. He didn’t call out the ones who committed violence on the other side by name. He never mentioned them.”
Trump noted Falwell’s comments through a tweet, urging the “Fake News” to listen to what the university president had to say.
Jerry Falwell of Liberty University was fantastic on @foxandfriends. The Fake News should listen to what he had to say. Thanks Jerry!

Falwell on Monday also called for Americans to be united to fight any terrorism, “whether it comes from Timothy Mcveigh in Oklahoma City or from this group [of] crazy people in Charlottesville, or the ones who were flying the planes into the World Trade Center, or ISIS attacking people in Barcelona. It’s all pure evil, and we all need to be united against it.”
