Trump noted Falwell's comments through a tweet, urging the "Fake News" to listen to what the university president had to say.
After a woman was killed when a auto smashed into a crowd of anti-fascist protesters in Charlottesville, President Trump took two days to condemn the KKK and neo-Nazi protesters. 'He said you can call it terrorism, you can call it evil, you can call it murder.
National Public Radio reported on Sunday that a number of Liberty University graduates were preparing to return their diplomas to protest his support for Trump. But Falwell says his support for the president is about his willingness to call terrorist groups by their names.
"I think all of the alumni have been troubled by Jerry Falwell Jr.'s intense defense of Trump", Hamann said.
"He completely misunderstands my support", Falwell said in response to the idea, which Gaumer expressed earlier to NPR, that he had made Liberty University complicit in the defense of racism.
"I don't know that to be the fact, ' Falwell then said of his 'inside information" claim. Falwell agreed that they should have left, but refused to disagree with Trump's assessment that they are "fine people". Kilmeade exclaimed. "He has five people that I know of in his office that have worked for him who are Jewish for 30 years!"
He said "many sides" were to blame and that there were "very fine people" on both sides.

They are also writing to Falwell's board of trustees, calling for his ouster, according to The Washington Post.
"As alums, we have the power to say something", the Facebook group's description says, urging alumni to mail their diplomas to Falwell's office on September 5, along with explanatory letters.

The White House specifically chose Falwell to represent it on the show, which is strange since usually someone who actually works for the administration is sent to represent it. And I admire him for that'. But he never said it was not terrorism'.
The Trump administration did not send any officials to appear on the Sunday political talk shows, a growing sign of how despised and hated this presidency has become.
"One of the first things that he did was rebuild a relationship with Israel, with Benjamin Netanyahu", said Falwell.
Hamann snapped back at that assessment, saying such praise for someone being politically incorrect without concern over the possible repercussions is "just so troubling".
