Jerry Falwell Jr., the president of the Christian-based Liberty University, defended President Donald Trump’s unproven claims that “good” and “fine” people marched with anti-Semitic white supremacists in Charlottesville.
Falwell, a long-time Trump supporter, told ABC News’ “This Week” his far-fetched theory and provided no evidence:
He has inside information that I don’t have. I don’t know if there were historical purists there who were trying to preserve some statues. I don’t know. But he had information I didn’t have…
I think he saw videos of who was there. I think he was talking about what he had seen, information that he had that I don’t have. All I know is it was pure evil. The media has tried to paint this as Republican versus Democrat, black versus white, Jew versus gentile, but it’s just pure evil versus good.
Host Martha Raddatz actually said she was “intrigued” by Falwell’s unproven claim, and Falwell responded:
I don’t know that to be the fact. I just know that it’s totally true what you just said, there’s no good KKK, there’s no good white supremacist.
