Rev. Franklin Graham stood up to every Trump hater, who decided to throw rocks at the President after the incident in Charlottesville, Virginia took place Saturday.
Many blamed Trump for not taking one side, while blamig the other, but actually found both parties as culprits. In the attack, one person lost her life, while leaving more than 20 people injured.
Graham then released a statement noting that politics has become some people’s (read liberals) priority to the point they’re unafraid to stomp over everyone in any way possible.
Graham focused on the things rarely anyone else would admit.
“Shame on the politicians who are trying to push blame on President Trump for what happened in Charlottesville, VA,” he noted. “That’s absurd.”
“What about the politicians such as the city council who voted to remove a memorial that had been in place since 1924, regardless of the possible repercussions?” he continued, talking about the statue of Robert E. Lee.
“How about the city politicians who issued the permit for the lawful demonstration to defend the statue?” he began discussing blame. “And why didn’t the mayor or the governor see that a powder keg was about to explode and stop it before it got started? Instead they want to blame President Donald J. Trump for everything.”
Graham made a fair point, that will certainly make Trump proud. It is good to learn many people still have his back, and understand where he’s coming from.
Take a look at his official statement.

“Really, this boils down to evil in people’s hearts,” Graham stated. “Satan is behind it all. He wants division, he wants unrest, he wants violence and hatred. He’s the enemy of peace and unity. I denounce bigotry and racism of every form, be it black, white or any other.
“My prayer is that our nation will come together,” he concluded. “We are stronger together, and our answers lie in turning to God. It was good to hear that several Virginia and Charlottesville leaders attended church today at Mt. Zion. CNN said, ‘The racial divides that fueled Saturday’s violence were replaced by unity Sunday…’ Continue to pray for peace and for all those impacted by Saturday’s tragedies.”
The man has a point- we have to start unifying ourselves instead of building walls of intolerance. It is only as united that we will be able to confront any foreign enemy that threatens the safety or future of our country.
