Trump-Loving Evangelical Admits To Privately Calling The President To Urge Him To Meet With Putin

It’s been proven by U.S. intelligence that Russia interfered in the U.S. election in 2016 to help Donald Trump become president. Despite the fact that Russia meddled in the election, Liberty University president and televangelist spawn Jerry Falwell Jr. believes that Trump needs to befriend the Russian president to improve the two countries’ relationships.

Falwell admitted via Twitter over the weekend that he urged Trump during a private phone call that he should pursue a relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, despite the criticism he has received.

Falwell tweeted:

“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”

Falwell had also admitted during an interview with The Atlantic in 2017 that Trump should look to fix the country’s relationship with Russia.

“I look at Trump more as a very, very, very shrewd and calculating businessman, and I think any good businessman would try to open up opportunities for negotiation and for relationship-building,” Falwell said in the 2017 interview. “I think that’s all he’s tried to do with Putin. I think he’s smart enough to know that you can’t even negotiate if you don’t have a relationship.”
