Evangelist Franklin Graham on Monday, Dec. 15, said that he is grateful for the last four years during which the nation was under the leadership of President Donald Trump.
“I am grateful—grateful to God that for the last four years He gave us a president 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,” Graham said in a statement posted on social media.
He continued that he is “grateful for a president who built the strongest economy in 70 years with the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years before the pandemic; grateful for a president who strengthened and supported our military; grateful for a president who stood against ‘the swamp’ and the corruption in Washington; grateful for 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. 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!” he added.
Graham made the comments the same day the Electoral College gave Democrat candidate Joe Biden a majority of votes.
“President Trump will go down in history as one of the great presidents of our nation, bringing peace and prosperity to millions here in the U.S. and around the world. May God bless him, Melania, and their family, as God leads him to the next chapter in his life,” he concluded.
President Trump thanked Graham in a tweet. The president, however, has showed no sign of conceding the election results.
In spite of continued attacks from the media, Democrats, and even Republicans, and many setbacks by unfair court rulings, President Trump vowed to “continue to go forward” in the fight against election fraud.
“No, it’s not over. We keep going and we’re going to continue to go forward. We have numerous local cases,” President Trump said during an interview with Fox News on Sunday, Dec. 13.
“This wasn’t like a close election,” he added. “You look at Georgia. We won Georgia big. We won Pennsylvania big. We won Wisconsin big. We won it big. What happened to this country is we were like a third world country.”
White House Senior Adviser Stephen Miller, on Monday recalled that in the U.S. Constitution, the deadline for the presidential election is Jan. 20. He said President Trump will have until that day to define his re-election, regardless of whether the Electoral College decides otherwise.
“We have more than enough time to correct the error of this fraudulent election result and certify Donald Trump as the winner of the election,” Miller said.
