Jerry Falwell Jr.: Conservatives and Christians need to stop electing ‘nice guys’

Evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. recently called Republican legislators “a bunch of wimps,” and suggested that conservatives and Christians should stop electing “nice guys.”

The Liberty University president’s comments support some of President Trump’s tweets complaining about Congress. Falwell, a vocal supporter of Trump since 2016, invited Trump to speak at the college’s 2017 commencement ceremony.

“Falwell also reportedly reviewed and rejected stories and opinion pieces written about the president in the school’s student newspaper, particularly when they focused on Trump’s vulgar comments on the “Access Hollywood” tape,” The Hill reports.

Fallwell also criticized Attorney General as “phony” on Twitter:

Falwell and many other evangelical leaders have continued to back the president despite criticism about him.
