Jerry Falwell Jr. says no one in U.S. history has done more for people of faith than President Donald Trump.
Falwell, the president of Liberty University, made his comments in a column posted by Fox News on Tuesday. They came in the wake of an editorial by Christianity Today that called for the president to be removed from office.
"From defending our religious liberties, to protecting the life of the unborn, to fighting anti-Semitism, to re-establishing our Judeo-Christian principles in U.S. policy and American society, no one in our history has done more for people of faith, ever, than President Trump," he wrote.
"Although Christians have never had a better champion in the White House than President Trump, a so-called Christian media outlet is using its platform to echo the radical, progressive left in demanding his removal from office, stalking the internet like a wolf in sheep's clothing."
"With 67 percent of white evangelicals approving of President Trump in a recent Fox News poll, it's obvious that Christianity Today only speaks for those very few who actually believe that the radical Democrats met the very high standard in the Constitution to impeach a duly elected president."
And Falwell noted that "a large majority of Americans and the Christian world" support Trump and are against "the radical left."
"He's the only thing that stands between us and the escalating attacks on our faith and liberty," Falwell wrote.
