Jerry Falwell Jr.: Trump ‘Has the Potential to Be the Greatest President Since Abraham Lincoln’


Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” Liberty University’s Jerry Falwell Jr. said if President Donald Trump starts weeding out  “fake Republicans,” he “has the potential to be the greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.” Falwell said, “I think there are several Republicans in the Senate who pretended to be conservative Republicans to deceive their base, to deceive their voters. They got elected, and they really don’t share the same values. 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.” (h/t  Mediaite) Follow Pam Key on Twitter @pamkeyNEN

Chris Murphy (D-CT) said President Donald Trump’s decision to end key Obamacare subsidies was akin to “arson.” “This is the equivalent of health care arson.

Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gov. John Kasich (R-Ohio) said the executive chairman of Breitbart News Steve Bannon targeting Republican senators to help ensure President Donald Trump’s agenda was being moved forward is pushing policy that was “not what the party is.” Partial transcript as follows: TODD: There seems to be a massive battle inside this Republican party. Steve Bannon yesterday declared it a season of war against the Republican establishment, singling out people like Bob Corker in particular, and thought it was outrageous he cared to criticize the president. What do you make of what Steve Bannon is doing to the Republican party? KASICH: I was on a show not long ago saying I’m disappointed in the direction of the Republican party. They cannot be anti-trade or anti-immigrant. They just can’t walk away from increasing debt. The Republican party can’t go out and start grabbing people out of their homes who have been really good people living in this country and shipping them out of the country willy-nilly or taking away health care for millions of people. This is not what the party is. Look, I grew up in the Reagan era. Here’s what it was. It was
