Donald Trump - Liberty University Convocation
On September 24, 2012 at Convocation, North America's largest weekly gathering of Christian students, Donald Trump began his speech with the dire state of the nation's economy and its failed foreign relations and then engaged students for 30 minutes about the values that brought him to the pinnacle of real estate development and business success. Trump finished by addressing a few questions from students, which had been texted during the speech. Trump also spent time praising Liberty for its notoriety and honoring its founder, Dr. Jerry Falwell, Sr., whom he had met on several occasions and Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr.
Prior to his speech, Trump was awarded an honorary doctorate of business in recognition of his "unwavering and public commitment to our nation's founding principles of limited government, individual liberty, and the free enterprise system, and in further recognition of his iconic status as one of America's most successful visionaries and entrepreneurs."
