(MEDIAITE) -- Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. told the Washington Post that it’s “immoral for” evangelical leaders “not to support” Donald Trump in a lengthy interview regarding his right-wing religious views and support of the president.
The Washington Post‘s Joe Heim asked Falwell about faith leaders who have criticized his pro-Trump views, and Falwell pointed to minority unemployment rates as a reason that all Christians should back the president.
“It may be immoral for them not to support him, because he’s got African American employment to record highs, Hispanic employment to record highs,” Falwell replied. “They need to look at what the president did for the poor.”
