LIVE STREAM: Donald Trump Commencement Speech at Liberty University

President Donald Trump will deliver a commencement speech at Liberty University today.

The Liberty University commencement will begin at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time. The ceremony can be viewed live in the embedded YouTube player via The White House.

Liberty University is the largest Christian university in the world, and the school’s president, Jerry Falwell Jr., endorsed Trump for president in January 2016, during the Republican presidential primaries. At the time, Trump said that this was a “great honor.”

Falwell defended Donald Trump throughout the presidential campaign, including when a leaked tape showed Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women.

“The comments Mr. Trump made 11 years ago were deplorable and I condemn them entirely,” Falwell said, according to The Washington Post. “I also find Hillary Clinton’s support of partial birth abortion criminal and her opinion of evangelicals to be bigoted. There really is only one difference between the two. Mr. Trump promises to support religious liberty and the dignity of the unborn. Mrs. Clinton promises she will not.”

Trump previously spoke at Liberty University in January 2016, at the height of the Republican presidential primaries.

“Christianity, it’s under siege,” Trump said during his speech.

This was the speech in which Trump famously referred to the Second Epistle to the Corinthians as “Two Corinthians.”

There are expected to be some protests at Liberty University on Saturday, including from students who have formed a group called Liberty United Against Trump, according to TIME.
