Liberty University President and the son of a famed Christian televangelist endorsed Donald Trump on Tuesday, NBC News reported.
Jerry Falwell Jr. has spoken glowingly about Trump and his endorsement is not a surprise. But coming just days before the Iowa caucuses, the support may help boost Trump among the state's influential evangelical caucus goers.
Falwell called Trump "a successful executive and entrepreneur, a wonderful father and a man who I believe can lead our country to greatness again."

The endorsement was first reported by the Washington Post and comes amid attacks from rival Ted Cruz highlighting Trump's past comments on issues like abortion. One add includes a 1999 interview where Trump says he's "pro-choice in every respect."
