Franklin Graham has made it a point to say that no one candidate can save this nation--only God can. However, that doesn't mean he doesn't have a preference between Trump and Clinton. At a closed door meeting of Evangelicals and Donald Trump this week in New York, Graham spoke passionately about the need to vote for the candidate who can presumably do the most good, reports the Christian Post.
Though press were not allowed in the meeting, Bishop E.W. Jackson of Virginia shared Graham's exhortation to the crowd of Christians. "Franklin Graham made this point and it is a powerful one — there will never be a perfect candidate as much as we would like one. There will never be a perfect candidate. In fact, he said, 'Look, I am a sinner, we all are sinners. We all fall short of the glory of God,'" Jackson said. "He said that we don't get to choose between perfect evil and perfect good. We get to choose people that we believe are at least inclined to, open to, have the possibility of doing what is best for our country."
"[Graham] made quite clear that one candidate offers absolutely no hope — Hillary Clinton. And, another candidate offers a tremendous amount of hope — Donald Trump," Jackson went on. "I think he made clear where he stands. Nobody left that room wondering is he considering boycotting. Just the fact that he showed up tells you everything you need to know, really."
In a latest Facebook post, Graham shares some positive answers from Trump at the meeting.
