Falwell Jr.: Trump 'Does Not Have a Racist Bone in His Body'

As the Trump administration continues to grapple with fallout from the violence in Charlottesville, a small but growing number of Liberty University students are protesting the president by returning their diplomas.

"I'm sending my diploma back because the president of the United States is defending Nazis and white supremacists", Gaumer said.

"We are doing so to protest Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr.'s continued efforts to act as a spokesperson for President Trump even after his profound lack of moral leadership following the events in Charlottesville".

Falwell, who attended law school at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, said Trump "left the door open" for the incident to be considered domestic terrorism.

Falwell believes Trump had a legitimate reason for biding his time in condemning the terrible acts of the protest, or at the very least, elaborating further on what he meant about the problematic nature of "both sides".

Anar Ziranov, 25, continued to furiously punch the fallen powerlifter, Andrey Drachev, even though he appeared to be unconscious. In April, Drachev won in the "extreme bodybuilding" category at the Bodybuilding Championships held in Primorsky.

His television appearance earned him a nod from Trump, who tweeted Monday that Falwell had been "fantastic" on the show.

However, they hope the gesture will prompt administrators to further examine Falwell's political stance and its subsequent impact on the university and its students.

The group says it plans to return diplomas to Falwell's office by September 5.

Unlike Falwell, his friend William R. Harvey of Hampton University was very clear in condemning the white supremacy that Trump could not bring himself to unequivocally denounce.

Falwell has since responded to the group, telling ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that the alumni misinterpreted his comments.

"I feel like I need to go to grad school immediately after graduating from LU just to get Liberty pushed to the bottom of my resume", Hadley wrote to The News & Advance. "He does not have a racist bone in his body - I know him well".

Falwell told me on my nationally syndicated radio program that he's not terribly bothered by the angst-driven grads. "Yes, he could be more polished and politically correct, but that's the reason I supported him, because he's not". I think he was talking about what he had seen ...

Raddatz also asked what Falwell would tell Heyer's mother, who says she doesn't want to speak with President Trump after what he said about the counter-protesters.

Falwell was one of the earliest evangelical leaders who endorsed Trump in January 2016, when many conservative Christian leaders were expressing concern about the billionaire's multiple marriages.

Falwell, however, is not the only evangelical leader who continues to stand by the president despite widespread criticism.
