Evangelist William Graham has called on President Donald Trump and President-elect Joe Biden to meet and begin the smooth transition during a time in which the nation needs healing and reconciliation. He called on the leadership in both parties to bear responsibility for the division in our country together and come together to work for the good of all American people.
In a recent Facebook post, Graham compared the Democrats and Republicans who voted on impeaching President Trump to Judas Iscariot’s betrayal of Jesus Christ. He talked about how President Trump gave us lowered taxes, a strong economy, the guts to take on North Korea, bringing prison reform, securing our southern border, strengthening our military, defended religious liberty, defeated the ISIS caliphate in Syria, and made NATO take notice and pay their own way.
“…the House Democrats impeached him because they hate him and want to do as much damage as they can. And these ten, from his own party, joined in the feeding frenzy. It makes you wonder what the thirty pieces of silver were that Speaker Pelosi promised for this betrayal,” he writes.
While Graham goes on to say that President Trump isn’t a perfect person and that January 6 was a low point in his presidency, millions of people voted for him because of the platforms and policies he promised. “The Democrats have been trying to get rid of the President since the day he took office. What they did yesterday only further divides our nation. I hope President-elect Biden will keep his word and work for unity as he has said,” the post concludes.
The post acknowledges the ten Republicans who supported the impeachment of President Trump. One of the House Republicans, Rep. Liz Cheney, argued that the President summoned this mob, assembled the mob, and lit the flame of this country without forcefully intervening to stop the violence.
Graham talked about the Christian flags and symbols that were seen in the crowd right before they stormed the Capitol building. While defending the rights for every Christian to protest, he acknowledged that these individuals are simply ‘thugs’ who should be prosecuted. He said they broke the law and should be thrown in jail. That is based on personal accountability, not Trump Derangement syndrome.
The Democrat-controlled House voted 232-197 to impeach President Trump. Minority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell needs just 18 votes to convict him on impeachment and bring with it a ban on holding federal office, which includes the presidency. The next question will be whether Senate Republicans have the nerve to divide the country more or bring it together for a smooth transition for the Biden Administration.
“On one hand they talk about unity and bringing the country together but yet you’ve tried to impeach the president a second time,” Graham concluded.
