Christian University Crowd Goes Wild When Trump Introduced as 'Man Who Bombs Middle East'


When Donald Trump spoke at Liberty University's commencement this past weekend, the crowd roared at his introduction, as the man who "bombed those in the middle east who persecuting Christians."



The small Christian school in Lynchburg, Virginia was founded by Jerry Falwell, Sr, for the evangelical community; Falwell's son, Jerry Fallwell, Jr, is now the school's president, and has long been a staunch Trump supporter, including defending Trump after sexual harassment allegations and the explicit "just grab them by the p***y" tape surfaced.




Trump's introduction, courtesy Fallwell, Jr, referred to Trump's recent Syrian missile strike.

While Trump said the strike was intended to establish a "red line" for the use of chemical weapons in Syria, Falwell and other evangelicals have claimed it was in defense of minority Christians still living in Syria.

The focus of Trump's speech seemed to be the idea of the United States as a Christian nation, and defending Christian values around the world, as summed up by his statement, "in America we don’t worship government, we worship God."

Though Trump had never touted his faith in any setting publicly prior to running for president, his faith-based speech played well with the 50,000 attendees, especially as he emphasized his status as a Washington "outsider."

"Following your convictions...means you must face criticism from those who lack courage to do what is right," he said, following that with "we don’t need a lecture from Washington on how to lead our lives."

Though newly-elected presidents usually give their first commencement speech at the University of Notre Dame, Trump opted for a friendlier crowd at Liberty, where he also spoke twice during the 2016 campaign.

The speech was Trump's first extended public experience since firing FBI Director James Comey.
