Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. Claims He Advised Trump On Russia
Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. claims that he advised President Donald Trump in 2017 on U.S. relations with Russia.
Falwell laughingly claimed that Putin’s Russia is the same Russia that fought with the U.S. in World War II on July 28:
I remember telling @realDonaldTrump in a private phone talk in 2017 to keep trying to improve the relationship between US & Russia despite the criticism and not to forget we might’ve lost WWII w/o Russia as an ally. Glad to see him reaching out to them from a position of strength

Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, slammed Putin on July 16, the day Trump met with Putin:
Vladimir Putin ruthlessly persecutes those who preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, holds orphans hostage from waiting families for his political purposes, murders dissidents and journalists, attacks democratic institutions and nations.
Morality is not relative.
