President Trump remembered the message of the late Reverend Billy Graham at his memorial on Capitol Hill Wednesday.


“In London, Tokyo, Seoul, Bogota, Moscow, New Delhi, Saigon, Johannesburg and scores of other places all over the world Reverend Graham shared the power of God’s word with more than 200 million people in person, and countless others through television and radio, where people loved to watch and listen,” Trump said.

The president continued, “In 1978, with the support of the Catholic bishop who would soon become Pope John Paul II Reverend Graham went to Poland and spoke of the meaning of the cross to a people suffering under the soulless oppression of communism.”

“Billy Graham carried his message around the world, but his heart, as Franklin will tell you, was always in America. He took his message to the poorest places, to the downtrodden, and to the brokenhearted, to inmates in prison and to the overlooked and the neglected. He felt a great passion for those that were neglected. Everywhere he went, Reverend Graham delivered the same beautiful message, God loves you. That was his message. God loves you.” (RELATED: WATCH: President Trump And Melania Appear At Billy Graham’s Memorial)
