Elec­tion night, fol­low­ing his vic­tory: Pres­i­dent-elect Don­ald Trump:

“Now it’s time for Amer­ica to bind the wounds of di­vi­sion; have to get to­gether. To all Repub­li­cans and Democrats and in­de­pen­dents across this na­tion, I say it is time for us to come to­gether as one united peo­ple. I pledge to ev­ery cit­i­zen of our land that I will be pres­i­dent for all Amer­i­cans, and this is so im­por­tant to me. It’s been an amaz­ing two-year pe­riod. And I love this coun­try.”

Nov. 9: Evan­ge­list Franklin Gra­ham:

“Did God show up? In watch­ing the news af­ter the elec­tion, the sec­u­lar me­dia keep ask­ing ‘How did this hap­pen?’ ‘What went wrong?’ ‘How did we miss this?’ Some are in shock. Po­lit­i­cal pun­dits are stunned. Many thought the Trump/Pence ticket didn’t have a chance. None of them un­der­stand the God-fac­tor.”

“Hun­dreds of thou­sands of Chris­tians from across the United States have been pray­ing. This year they came out to ev­ery state capi­tol to pray for this elec­tion and for the fu­ture of Amer­ica. Prayer groups were started. Fam­i­lies prayed. Churches prayed. Then Chris­tians went to the polls, and God showed up.”

● Happy New Year, and thank you for read­ing In­side the Belt­way.
