President Trump’s Tribute to Rev Graham

Many past American leaders paid respect to the evangelist, who was known as the confidant of presidents and the most widely heard Christian evangelist in history. When he died, President Donald Trump tweeted that there was nobody like the late evangelist, and Christians and all religions will miss him. He further stated that the preacher was one of the towering figures of the last 100 years, an American Hero, whose life and leadership truly earned him the title “God’s Ambassador.” As the late preacher laid in honor at the United States Capitol, President Donald Trump paid respect to him.

Before the president laid a wreath at Rev Graham’s coffin, he remarked that Graham was an ambassador for Christ who reminded the world of the power of prayer and the gift of God’s grace. In his remark, he also remembered attending Bill Graham’s sermon at Yankee Stadium in New York with his father. He also added that his father was a fan of Rev Graham. According to Trump, the rare tribute paid to Graham was very fitting, because he was a legendary American figure, who deserved to be recognized in the place where the memory of the Americans is enshrined. The former presidents of the United States of America, who also paid respect to Rev Graham, include Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.

The Former President George W. Bush gave some remarks before getting back into his car. In his remark, he stated that Billy Graham was a humble shepherd of the Lord, and he was unbelievably blessed to have met him. He also revealed that his parents were Graham’s close friends and he believes his father wishes he was present to pay respect to the late preacher.

He also added that regardless of his father’s absence, he knew his spirit and heart was there with them.

The Former President Bill Clinton also recalled the first time he met Graham, how profound the experience was to his life and how grateful he was. He highlighted his insistence on racial integration in his evangelistic crusades during the Civil Rights movement. According to Bill, Rev Graham is one of the most important religious leaders in American history. His powerful words and the conviction they carried touched innumerable hearts and minds.

The Former President Barack Obama tweeted that the late evangelist was a humble servant who prayed for so many, and who with wisdom and grace, gave hope and guidance to generations of America. Rev Billy Graham will be dearly missed. May his soul rest in peace, and may God grant his family and close friends the fortitude to bear their loss.
