Jerry Falwell Faces Backlash After Attacking Evangelical For Criticizing Trump’s Treatment Of Migrant Children

The Hill reports:

Evangelical leader Jerry Falwell Jr. on Tuesday defended the Trump administration amid criticism over conditions migrant children have faced in U.S. detention facilities.

Falwell lashed out at Russell D. Moore, a theologian and president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, for criticizing the administration following reports of detained migrant children held in unsanitary and inadequate conditions.

Falwell’s tweet racked up a little more than 250 likes as of Tuesday evening, but the post garnered over 5,000 replies, the bulk of which criticized his comments.
