President of Liberty University Jerry Falwell Jr. – the site where
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)
launched his presidential campaign – endorsed Donald Trump for President of the United States on Tuesday.
Falwell said Trump is “a successful executive and entrepreneur, a wonderful father and a man who I believe can lead our country to greatness again.”
The Washington Post reports the endorsement represents: “the blessing of one of the evangelical community’s biggest names just days before the Iowa caucuses.”
“It is truly an honor to receive Jerry’s endorsement. Not only is he a high-quality person, with a wonderful family, whom I have great respect for — I also consider him a very good friend and his support means so much to me,” Trump said of the endorsement.
