Recently Falwell confirmed that he had visited Trump in New York City and that the focus was on an Education Department post, according to the Associated Press.
"Falwell tells local media that he and Trump met Thursday at Trump Tower to discuss the U.S. Department of Education and Falwell's potential role," reported the AP last Friday.
"He wouldn't confirm or deny whether he was being vetted as secretary of education, but says he will 'definitely play a role' in the administration."
The Christian Post reached out to Liberty University for further details, however a representative explained that Falwell was unable to return comment.
The son of the late influential fundamentalist Christian leader, Falwell was one of the first conservative evangelical leaders to endorse Trump's presidential campaign, stating his support back in January.
"He is a successful executive and entrepreneur, a wonderful father and a man who I believe can lead our country to greatness again," stated Falwell.
Falwell received much criticism from many Liberty University students and alumni for his decision, as well as flack for posting a photo to Twitter in June wherein he and his wife stood beside Trump with a Playboy magazine cover in the background.
"@JerryJrFalwell @realDonaldTrump @beckifalwell Nice Playboy cover in the shot! Really brings out colours of the hypocrisy on display," commented one critic, with another tweeting "@JerryJrFalwell I don't think Jesus (or any man of God) would approve of the image just over @beckifalwell's shoulder ... #NEVERTRUMP."
