Jerry Falwell Can't Say If There Were 'Very Fine People' in Charlottesville

"I know him well".

"This Week" co-anchor Martha Raddatz said at the beginning of the show that the White House would not provide anyone for Sunday shows - a rare snub from the Trump administration. They began organizing after Trump's divisive remarks about the deadly white supremacist protests in Charlottesville, Va.

Falwell waved off the alumni protest, saying his support for Trump, which included an endorsement during his presidential campaign, is misunderstood.

'And that's one of the reasons I supported him, ' he added. On Sunday, Senator Tim Kaine called President Trumps remarks "outrageous", noting that Trump was quick to call recent worldwide incidents acts of terror, but not in the death of counter-protester Heather Heyer.

"I was to the point where I didn't even want to include my alma mater on my resume when I was applying for jobs, just because I think that can be so loaded", Tilley said.

"The American people have gotten sort of thin-skinned and I think they need to listen to the substance of what he said", said Falwell.

"I'm sending my diploma back because the president of the United States is defending Nazis and white supremacists", Liberty graduate Chris Gaumer, who is a former Student Government Association president at the university, told NPR.

They are overt symbols of racism and white supremacy, and the time is long overdue for them to depart from public display. Meanwhile, a descendant of Jefferson Davis said he supports moving the statues to appropriate settings, such as museums .

Although a number of President Trump's advisory councils crumbled this week amid mass resignations by CEOs and arts leaders, the evangelical advisory council on which Falwell serves is still going.

But Falwell, the president of Virginia's Liberty University, defended the president for calling out white supremacists, white nationalists and KKK members by name as "pure evil".

In an interview on ABC's "This Week", Falwell repeatedly praised Trump's defense of some of the protesters at the neo-Nazi rally in Virginia, suggesting that the president knew information about the attendees that wasn't shared with the public.

Raddatz pressed hard over Trump's remark that there were "very fine people on both sides".

Raddatz pointed to that comments and asked Falwell to react. "I think he was talking about what he had seen, information that he had that I don't have", Falwell insisted.

"It really is a watershed moment to have people openly chanting Nazi chants. holding white supremacist signs, and carrying weapons along with all of that, and killing somebody, injuring many in the process", he said.
