Franklin Graham to Pope: ‘Build a Bridge to Donald Trump’

February 18, 2016 6:33 pm  

(Newsmax) – The Rev. Franklin Graham Thursday suggested that Pope Francis “build a bridge” to Republican front-runner Donald Trump because “who knows where he may be this time next year.”

“I agree that, as Christians, we should try to build bridges with everyone that we possibly can,” Graham wrote in a post on Facebook. “But that doesn’t mean that we should compromise our national security.”

He is the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham and leader of his foundation, as well as president of the global charity Samaritan’s Purse.

Franklin Graham pointed to similar positions by GOP candidates Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, John Kasich and Marco Rubio — “as well as millions of Americans.”


They all want a wall built “in order to protect America from enemies who want to use the U.S.-Mexican border as a way to enter our country and do us harm,” Graham wrote.

“Are they not Christian either?”

He ended by saying: “My advice to the Pontiff: Reach out and build a bridge to Donald Trump. Who knows where he may be this time next year!”
