In an election victory ‘Thank You Tour’ organised by the US president-elect Donald Trump, Trump gave tribute to Reverend Franklin Graham, who is one of the other speakers for his help and support – .
Trump’s warm words for Graham are an acknowledgment of the role the founder of Samaritan’s Purse and son of Billy Graham played in delivering his election victory – though Graham was careful not to place himself as a pro-Trump campaigner.
Gospel Herald reports that Trump pointed to Graham after the evangelist introduced him to the crowd and said: “Look at him, he worked so hard. I love anybody that has anything to do with the incredible Billy Graham. And that’s his son, and that son is great.”
Speaking to a crowd of around 20,000 supporters, Trump said: “There’s no better place to celebrate than right here. I want to thank so many great people, but having Franklin Graham, who was so instrumental, we won so big, with evangelical Christians, we won so big.”
