A PAS­TOR SPEAKS

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

The Rev. Franklin Gra­ham has once again stepped up to sup­port Pres­i­dent Trump, fault the news me­dia for hos­tile cov­er­age and ask the na­tion to pray for the 45th pres­i­dent.

“Pres­i­dent Trump has to make very tough de­ci­sions — I wouldn’t want his job for any­thing. His de­ci­sions im­pact the lives of peo­ple abroad and here at home. It is so im­por­tant that we con­tinue to faith­fully lift him and his ad­min­is­tra­tion up in prayer,” the evan­ge­list and son of the late Billy Gra­ham said in a re­cent Face­book post.

“I’m tired of all the fight­ing in Wash­ing­ton. You can’t turn on the news or read the head­lines on­line without be­ing over­whelmed by all of the po­lit­i­cal squab­bling, to put it mildly. The news me­dia are so vi­cious and re­lent­less in their fault find­ing and their at­tacks on the Pres­i­dent. It’s just sick­en­ing. We have the po­ten­tial for so much good and so much progress for our na­tion, but Wash­ing­ton is squan­der­ing it away over po­lit­i­cal agen­das. I’m thank­ful that I have put my faith and trust in God who never grows weary and is never shut down, no mat­ter what the prob­lems are,” the pas­tor wrote.

In a fol­low-up Face­book post, Mr. Gra­ham praised Mr. Trump for his re­cent sur­prise visit with U.S. troops in Iraq.

“Yes, the pres­i­dent was in Wash­ing­ton work­ing while most other politi­cians had gone home for the Christ­mas hol­i­days. The me­dia doesn’t want to ac­knowl­edge any­thing pos­i­tive. They’re just out for an­other neg­a­tive Trump head­line,” he noted.

Mr. Gra­ham pre­vi­ously asked Amer­i­cans to pray for Mr. Trump dur­ing the 2016 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion, dur­ing the Supreme Court nom­i­na­tion of Judge Brett M. Ka­vanaugh to the Supreme Court and again dur­ing the midterm elec­tions.
