Falwell Jr.: 'Fake Republicans' Keeping Trump From Greatness

(Fox News' "Fox & Friends")

President Donald Trump could be "the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln" if "several" GOP Senate members "get out of the way and honor the values they ran on," Liberty University president Jerry Falwell Jr. said Sunday.

In an interview on "Fox & Friends Weekend," Falwell explained why he coined the phrase "Fake Republicans."

"I think there's several Republicans in the Senate who pretended to be conservative Republicans . . . and they really don't share the same values," he said.

"And I think if they will get out of the way and honor the values that they ran on, keep the promises that they made to their constituencies when they ran, I think Donald Trump has the potential to be the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln."

He added voters needed to "find candidates who are not professional politicians."

"I think it's time for the political class to go," he declared. "I think they need to find people who have been successful in other fields like Donald Trump was and elect them next year, primary these guys out of there. I think that's the only way it's going to be solved."

"I think they're just . . . Fake Republicans," he continued. "I don't think they believe anything they said they believe when they ran for office."

He named GOP Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, John McCain of Arizona and "maybe" Bob Corker of Tennessee as examples of faux conservatives.

"It's sad because they promised their constituencies they were somebody else," Falwell said. "They promised they were conservatives. I think it's the worst kind of deceit. At least Democrats admit what they believe. I have more respect for them than I do these Fake Republicans."
