WASHINGTON, Aug 25 (Reuters) - The Christian university run by Trump supporter Jerry Falwell Jr said on Tuesday he had resigned, a decision reached after Reuters reported that one of his business partner’s claimed he had a years-long sexual relationship involving Falwell’s wife and the evangelical leader.

In a statement, Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, said its board had decided at a meeting earlier on Tuesday to accept Falwell’s resignation.
