Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. believes that Donald Trump “will become America’s greatest president since Abraham Lincoln.” But that wasn’t enough to persuade him to accept Trump’s offer to become secretary of education, he said. Falwell told RNS the decision was due to concerns for the health of his family and the university he leads. …Falwell said he talked about the post in separate phone calls with the president-elect and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner. His interest was motivated by the possibility of reforming an overregulated government system that he believes micromanages colleges and universities, he said. Within a couple of days, Falwell said, the president-elect invited him to come to Trump Tower to discuss the possibility. The college president called a meeting with his family before departing for New York, but said his family couldn’t get comfortable with the idea.
