Evangelical students reject Trump at conservative US campus

Donald Trump Delivers Convocation At Liberty UniversityStudents at a major evangelical Christian university are seeking to cut ties with Donald Trump, joining other conservatives in moving away from the Republican presidential nominee following lewd comments about groping women. “Donald Trump does not represent our values and we want nothing to do with him,” read an online petition circulated Wednesday by students at Liberty University, where the White House candidate made a pitch to Christian voters in January. “A majority of Liberty students, faculty, and staff feel as we do,” said a statement entitled “Liberty United Against Trump,” which also denounced school president Jerry Falwell Jr, the son of an influential evangelical pastor.
