President Trump awoke Wednesday morning with a fabulous update. Namely, one of his most loyal evangelical supporters has decided to offer the President his endorsement.
“Finally a leader in WH. Jobs returning, N Korea backing down, bold truthful stmt about #charlottesville tragedy.So proud of @realdonaldtrump,” Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. tweeted.

With the violence in Virginia coming to a closure, Donald Trump pointed out that the two sides were equally guilty for the chaos.
Aside from Falwell, other evangelical entities have joined in on Trump’s support team.
Amid the Charlottesville drama, Rev. Franklin Graham also stepped out, offering a helping hand and words of support for the POTUS.
“Shame on the politicians who are trying to push blame on President Trump for what happened in #Charlottesville, VA. That’s absurd,” Graham posted on his Facebook profile.
“What about the politicians such as the city council who voted to remove a memorial that had been in place since 1924, regardless of the possible repercussions? How about the city politicians who issued the permit for the lawful demonstration to defend the statue? And why didn’t the mayor or the governor see that a powder keg was about to explode and stop it before it got started? Instead they want to blame President Donald J. Trump for everything,” he continued.
He compared being divided in opinions with us being one step closer to Satan and hell.
“Really, this boils down to evil in people’s hearts. Satan is behind it all. He wants division, he wants unrest, he wants violence and hatred. He’s the enemy of peace and unity. I denounce bigotry and racism of every form, be it black, white or any other. My prayer is that our nation will come together. We are stronger together, and our answers lie in turning to God,” he wrote.
Minister Samuel Rodriguez also spoke in Trump’d defense.
“I condemn the forces of white nationalism, white supremacy and anti-Semitism that divide our country today, and I also condemn those who seek to politicize it all for their political gain,” said the minister, who also participated in Trump’s inauguration.
“Unless, we bridge this senseless and partisan divide there will be more horrors to come. It’s on each of us to be a part of solution and it begins with turning our political swords into plowshares. We must begin to work together to heal our nation,” he finished.
Having read this, we cannot help but think that Trump, indeed, made a very fair point.
