Jerry Falwell Jr., the Liberty President has come out to say that this was the second time that a U.S. president held a speech at the Liberty University commencement and that more than 50,000 people attended.
“I’m thrilled to be back at Liberty University. I’ve been here, this is now my third time, and we love setting records, right? We always set records,” Trump said. “We have to set records, we have no choice.”
After motivating the graduates and telling them to turn their hopes and dreams into actions, President Trump took a shot at critics, saying, “Nothing is easier or more pathetic than being a critic because they’re people that can’t get the job done,” he said.
If there is one MAJOR difference between Trump and the trash-talking liberals, it is that they are just talkers, and Trump – well he’s a doer!
In his speech, Trump stood by the concept of a free thought and free speech, telling graduates they shouldn’t let other people tell them what to believe, “especially when you know that you’re right.”
“In America, we don’t worship government, we worship God,” he said.
Other than that, everyone that attended the event had a good time, watching Trump make a few innocent jokes about the school’s move to Division 1 saying, “Just wait until the world hears the football teams you’ll be playing on your schedule, starting next season.”
“Would you like me to read the names that just came out, would you like to hear them? I’m a little bit concerned. UMass, Virginia ― Auburn! Jerry, are you sure you know what you’re doing?” said Trump, making the entire crowd laugh and cheer.
But it was what the students did to surprise Trump that stole the whole show and warmed the hearts of millions. Pictures can be seen below of them wearing MAGA hats, and it was both inspirational and awesome at the same time.
