Donald Trump Blasted for Speech at Christian University: ‘There Isn’t a Shred of Christ in Him’

Donald Trump gave his first commencement address as president at Liberty University on Saturday, and many took to Twitter to mock Trump’s comments to the Christian graduates.

“Funny that Trump is speaking at Liberty University, a religious institute of higher education, since he is neither religious nor educated,” writer Nick Jack Pappas wrote on Twitter.

“Trump’s ‘Christian faith’ is the worst of his lies. There isn’t a shred of Christ in him. Liberty University should call him out, not welcome,” tweeted another user, while someone else wrote, “Trump speaking at Liberty University — two words his very existence s—s on.”

During his speech at the world’s largest Christian university in Lynchburg, Virginia, POTUS spoke about what he faces as a political outsider, the role that faith plays in America, and what the Christian graduates of Liberty University should expect in a secular world. The Washington Post noted that the commencement address was relatively short on scripture but still made the president look like a Christian.

“In America, we don’t worship government,” Trump said. “We worship God.”

He added, “As long as I am your president, no one is ever going to stop you from practicing your faith or from preaching what is in your heart.”

According to the Washington Post, Jerry Falwell Jr., Liberty University president, endorsed Trump in January 2016, calling him “a successful executive and entrepreneur, a wonderful father and a man who I believe can lead our country to greatness again.”

A representative for Trump has not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.

However, some were impressed with Trump’s speech, calling it “phenomenal” and “kick a–.”
