Liberty University opens its spring semester with a speech by Donald Trump.
Expect a warm welcome.
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. told the newspaper that he and his wife, Becki, have stayed in “close contact” with Trump since his 2012 appearance on campus. Falwell and Trump also spoke after Falwell’s December appearance on “The Sean Hannity Show,” in which the school president defended his decision in the wake of the San Bernardino shooting to end a rule prohibiting students from bringing guns into dorms. Becki Falwell told the newspaper that Trump had called Falwell, telling him he was proud of him and that he liked that Falwell had compared Trump favorably to the late Jerry Falwell.
