Franklin Graham: ‘I Am Grateful to God’ for Trump's Presidency
Reverend thanks President Donald Trump for all he has done for Americans
American evangelist Rev. Franklin Graham has praised President Donald Trump's leadership, saying he is "grateful to God" for his presidency.
The Christian leader celebrated "the last four years" in a Facebook post, saying he is thankful for everything President Trump has done for Americans during his time in the White House.
Rev. Graham was responding to Monday reports that the Electoral College had certified the election results in favor of former Vice President Joe Biden.
In his post, Graham, the son of prominent evangelist Billy Graham, reflected on all that President Trump has done for Americans who stand for life and freedom.
“People have asked if I am disappointed about the election,” he posted to Facebook.
Graham continued by reflecting that he is “grateful to God that for the last four years He gave us a president” who protected religious freedom.
President Trump defended the lives of the unborn, appointed Supreme Court justices and judges who will uphold the Constitution, and gave the nation a strong economy, Graham notes.
Graham, the president of international aid charity Samaritan’s Purse, continued that he is “grateful for a president who strengthened and supported our military."
The president stood against "the swamp" and the corruption in Washington D.C., he says.
He adds that he is thankful to have had "a president who supported law and order and defended our police.”
“I’m grateful for a president and a vice president who recognized the importance of prayer and were not ashamed of the name of Jesus Christ,” Graham added.
“I’m thankful that the president stood against the secularists who wanted to take Christ out of Christmas and that he brought back the greeting 'Merry Christmas!'” the Christian leader continued.
“So as we come to the end of this election season, I look back with a grateful heart and thank God for all of these things,” he said.
“President Trump will go down in history as one of the great presidents of our nation," he concludes.
Trump brought "peace and prosperity to millions here in the U.S. and around the world.”
