Evangelist Franklin Graham took to Twitter over the weekend to assert that, in light of Trump’s “track record of being right,” he tends to believe President Trump when he says the 2020 election was rigged or stolen.

According to The Christian Post, Graham, the president of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote his remarks in a Facebook post on Saturday explaining that Trump had been “falsely accused, maligned, and attacked” since the 2016 election for colluding with Russia in order to win the White House.
“In 2016, Donald J. Trump told the American people that the government was spying on him, Graham began. “The media said that he was paranoid. The Obama administration and the Democrats said that this was an absolute lie and that Donald Trump was not fit to be president, only for us to find out later that the U.S. government did spy on Donald Trump, and what he had said was in fact true.”
He continued, “Then we spent the next two years with the President under investigation for collusion with the Russians.”
Despite Trump saying that there was no collusion, the mainstream media and the Democrats contended that collusion did in fact, take place. Following an investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, “it turned out to be false — there was no collusion,” Graham noted. “President Trump was right again. Then the Democrats impeached him over a call.”
Graham went on to assert that “The President has been maligned, falsely accused, and attacked on every front since before the election in 2016.
“When President Trump said that this election has been rigged or stolen, I tend to believe him. He has a track record of being right,” he said.
Graham concluded his post by urging his followers to pray for Trump, Joe Biden, and for “our nation — that we will get through this, and for God’s will be done.”
COVID-19 lockdowns are taking down an independent news outlet
Nobody said running a media site would be easy. We could use some help keeping this site afloat.
Colleagues have called me the worst fundraiser ever. My skills are squarely rooted on the journalistic side of running a news outlet. Paying the bills has never been my forte, but we’ve survived. We have ads on the site that help, but since the site’s inception this has been a labor of love that otherwise doesn’t bring in the level of revenue necessary to justify it.
When I left a nice, corporate career in 2017, I did so knowing I wouldn’t make nearly as much money. But what we do at NOQ Report to deliver the truth and fight the progressive mainstream media narrative that has plagued this nation is too important for me to sacrifice it for the sake of wealth. We know we’ll never make a ton of money this way, and we’re okay with that.
Things have become harder with the coronavirus lockdowns. Both ad money and donations that have kept us afloat for a while have dropped dramatically. We thought we could weather the storm, but the resurgence of lockdowns that mainstream media and Democrats are pushing has put our prospects in jeopardy. In short, we are now in desperate need of financial assistance.
The best way NOQ Report readers can help is to donate. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal as well. We need approximately $17,300 to stay afloat through March when we hope the economy will be more open, but more would be wonderful and any amount that brings us closer to our goal is greatly appreciated.
The second way to help is to become a partner. We’ve strongly considered seeking angel investors in the past but because we were paying the bills, it didn’t seem necessary. Now, we’re struggling to pay the bills. This shouldn’t be the case as our traffic the last year has been going up dramatically. June, 2018, we had 11,678 visitors. A year later in June, 2019, we were up to 116,194. In June, 2020, we had 614,192. In November, 2020, we hit 1.2 million visitors.
We’re heading in the right direction and we believe we’re ready talk to patriotic investors who want to not only “get in on the action” but more importantly who want to help America hear the truth. Interested investors should contact me directly with the contact button above.
As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report going.
