Franklin Graham posted a stirring tribute to President Donald Trump and said he was “grateful” for the last four years with him in the White House.

The pastor and son of the late Reverend Billy Graham lauded the president in a social media post on Monday that has gone viral with its message of admiration and support. Soon after the Electoral College officially gave Joe Biden and Kamala Harris the 2020 election victory, Graham said Trump would “go down in history as one of the great presidents.”

“People have asked if I am disappointed about the election,” the 68-year-old president and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse wrote.

“When I think about my answer, I have to say honestly, that I am grateful—grateful to God that for the last four years He gave us a president who protected our religious liberties,” he continued, going on to name several more of Trump’s accomplishments, which critics have ignored and even some of his supporters have not credited him with enough.

Graham added in his post that he was 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.”

He also expressed his gratitude that Trump “built the strongest economy in 70 years with the lowest unemployment rate in 50 years before the pandemic” and added that he is “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.”

Graham mentioned Vice President Mike Pence as well, saying he was thankful that he and the president “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!’

Trump reminded a crowd in Georgia earlier this month how he fought against the left’s war on Christmas.

“Let me begin by wishing you all a very Merry Christmas. Remember the word? Remember we started five years ago and I said ‘You’re going to be saying Christmas again,’ and we say it proudly again although they’ll be trying to take that word again out of the vocabulary,” the president said. “We’re not going to let them do that.”

“So as we come to the end of this election season, I look back with a grateful heart and thank God for all of these things,” Graham wrote as he wrapped up his Facebook post.

“It is unfortunate that many people got confused and made the election about personalities rather than the policies of the candidates,” he noted.

“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,” the pastor concluded. “May God bless him, Melania, and their family, as God leads him to the next chapter in his life.”
