LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - A Liberty University board member who criticized the school president’s endorsement of Donald Trump has resigned.

The News & Advance reports (http://bit.ly/1TO2FrJ ) that Mark DeMoss resigned after several fellow board members took issue with his position on Jerry Falwell Jr.’s endorsement of the Republican presidential hopeful.

DeMoss is a former spokesman for Liberty’s founder, the late Jerry Falwell Sr. He criticized Jerry Falwell Jr.’s endorsement of Trump in an interview with The Washington Post a day before the Super Tuesday primaries.

DeMoss said his critics continued to question whether one of Trump’s GOP rivals was behind his criticism, even though he had made it clear that was not the case. He said that “fundamental lack of trust” would make it difficult for him to remain on the board.
