Donald Trump Talks About Politics & Success at LU

Lynchburg, VA - Donald Trump just wrapped up his speech to students at Liberty University.

The school says this was their most anticipated convocation speaker yet. They even set up extra spaces for overflow crowds. It was so crowded some even sat on the stairs to listen to Trump.

Trump is known for speaking his mind, and he certainly did not hold back on Monday.

He spent almost 40 minutes criticizing President Obama on his handling of foreign affairs and the economy. He was also very critical of the fact that the United States is losing jobs to China.

"America's lost his competitive edge - we have lost our edge. We're now in a position that unless something takes place in the next couple of years, we're going to be in serious trouble," he said.

It wasn't all politics -- Trump encouraged students to find a profession they were really passionate about.

He also shared his humorous side. He joked about his hair. And if you've ever wondered if it is real, it is real.

Liberty University also gave Trump an honorary doctorate of business degree. So now you can add doctor Trump to his many titles.

We'll have a full wrap up of his speech and reaction from students on ABC 13 News at 5 & 6.
