Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr., the son of the late televangelist, endorsed Donald Trump on Tuesday, giving the Republican front-runner the blessing of one of the evangelical community’s biggest names just days before the Iowa caucuses.

In a statement, Falwell called Trump “a successful executive and entrepreneur, a wonderful father and a man who I believe can lead our country to greatness again.”

“It is truly an honor to receive Jerry’s endorsement. Not only is he a high-quality person, with a wonderful family, whom I have great respect for — I also consider him a very good friend and his support means so much to me,” Trump said in a statement.

Coming a week after evangelical favorite Sarah Palin endorsed Trump, Falwell represents the latest attempt by Trump to cut into Cruz’s deep support among born-again Christians nationwide and showcase his own popularity with prominent people of faith.

Falwell, in particular, has a Cruz connection: When the U.S. senator from Texas launched his presidential campaign last year, he did so at Liberty University.

The Falwell endorsement came together over the course of several months, with the school leader and Trump exchanging private phone calls, according to Republicans familiar with the relationship. By late last year, Falwell was publicly encouraging Trump, even though he held off on an endorsement. “Trump reminds me so much of my father,” he said in a December interview with Fox News.

“In my opinion, Donald Trump lives a life of loving and helping others as Jesus taught in the great commandment,” Falwell said.

“He cannot be bought, he’s not a puppet on a string like many other candidates … who have wealthy donors as their puppet masters,” he added.

I am guessing Falwell is referring to John 13:34 when he talks about Trump following Christ’s teachings…

‘…Love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.’

I like Trump, don’t get me wrong….but I did chuckle a little. C’mon! There is some humor in that comparison…right?
