Trump promises to defend faith at Liberty University commencement

Francis Olson | 16 May, 2017, 18:49

U.S. President Donald Trump waves before delivering a keynote address at Liberty University's commencement in Lynchburg, Virginia, U.S., May 13, 2017. "Because in America, we don't worship government, we worship God", he continued.

He said in an aside: "I think I did".

He added: "We don't need a lecture from Washington on how to lead our lives". The speech is also the first commencement address Trump delivered as president.

Trump did not specifically mention Comey or other political disputes that have marked his first four months in office, but made repeated general references to his maverick campaign and presidency.

"In my short time in Washington I've seen firsthand how the system is broken", he said.

"You aren't going to let people tell you what to believe, especially when you know that you're right", Trump told the graduates lining the football field and the guests seated in the stadium, a total of 50,000 in attendance.

Newly-minted elementary education graduate Rachel Kreisel of Boca Raton, Fla., agrees. "We have truly begun a new chapter in American history where we have an administration that is not only welcoming of faith, but he said in his executive order they will vigorously protect and promote religious freedom".

Playboy model Dani Mathers will not be able to avoid a court date for Snapchatting a naked photo of a fellow gym user. . Mathers' lawyer indicated that she intends on testifying at the trial tentatively scheduled for later this month.

He called on the students to be champions for Christ, and encouraged them to maintain faith in God: If they have that, he said, "you will not fail". When the pilgrims landed at Plymouth, they prayed. Apparently, he also wants them to go against the flow of society.

"Remember this: Nothing worth doing ever, ever, ever came easy", Trump said. "I have gotten to know him well over the last few years and have come to admire him for those traits".

Trump's previous visit to Liberty during the campaign resulted in a much-maligned gaffe when he referred to a book of the Bible as "Two Corinthians" (it is traditionally described as "Second Corinthians)".

Trump spoke to an estimated 18,000 students from Liberty University, the largest evangelical university in the U.S., CBN News reported. Acting FBI Director Andrew McCabe also interviewed for the permanent post despite his repeated willingness to break from White House explanations of Comey's ouster and its characterizations of the Russian Federation investigation. "In other words your parents", Trump told the graduates. "With all of those blessings and all of the blessings that you've been given, what will you give back to this country - and indeed, to the world?" Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr., was one of the first leading white evangelical figures to endorse Trump during the Republican primary season, though that decision wasn't universally supported at his university. It's been a great honor for me...

It was the third time Trump has appeared at Liberty, founded by the late televangelist Jerry Falwell, who was best known for his anti-gay bigotry and for launching the so-called "Moral Majority" movement.

Often dubbed an "outsider" himself, the president told students that they themselves should bask in that label "because it's the outsiders who change the world and who make a real and lasting difference".
