Evangelist Franklin Graham said on Saturday, Dec. 19, that he tends to believe the election was stolen as President Donald Trump has said, because the president “has a track record of being right.”
In a long post on Facebook, Graham described that President Trump was besieged by false accusations in the past but he has ended up being right on many issues during his presidency.
For example, President Trump in 2016 told the American people that the government was spying on him, and “the media said that he was paranoid.”
“The Obama administration and the Democrats said that this was an absolute lie and that Donald Trump was not fit to be president, only for us to find out later that the U.S. government did spy on Donald Trump, and what he had said was in fact true,” Graham wrote.
For the next two years, Democrats conducted an investigation into President Trump for accusations of colluding with the Russians. Though the president affirmed there was no collusion, the media and Democrats insisted that there was.
But “after an investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller, it turned out to be false—there was no collusion. President Trump was right again. Then the Democrats impeached him over a phone call,” Graham said.
“The president has been maligned, falsely accused, and attacked on every front since before the election in 2016,” the evangelist said.
The evangelical leader also asked for prayers for both President Trump and Democrat Joe Biden, and for the nation “that we will get through this, and for God’s will to be done.”
Graham explained in a post on Thursday that he urged Christians to pray for Biden because he simply reminded everyone, “Joe Biden needs to be high on our prayer list” after the Electoral College voted, but said that President Trump “is still our president, and he still has my full support and prayers.”
In a post on Monday, Graham said that he is grateful for the last four years during which the United States was under the leadership of President Trump “who protected our religious liberties; grateful for a president who defended the lives of the unborn, standing publicly against abortion and the bloody smear it has made on our nation; grateful for a president who nominated conservative judges to the Supreme Court and to our federal courts.”
