Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. may have a job in Donald Trump’s administration. Falwell—whose father founded the Christian university—has been an outspoken Trump supporter, and defended him even after a tape leaked in which he bragged about being able to commit sexual assault.
Falwell has been meeting with the president-elect and is reportedly being considered for a White House roll, possibly even Secretary of Education.
He told reporters this week,
I met with the president-elect and several of his top advisers to discuss what role I might be able to play with regard to education. It was a very good discussion.
Falwell has been critical of the Department of Education, telling The Richmond Times-Dispatch, “I’d be willing to serve in some capacity that sort of brings education back to some form of sanity … I do have a lot of concerns about the way the Department of Education is operating.”
