Evangelical leader Franklin Graham suggests Trump may be too out of shape to run in 2024
Rev. Franklin Graham, leader of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and one of the earliest and most influential evangelical Christian supporters of former President Trump, told Axios on HBO that it was "a very difficult thing" for Trump to seek a second term in 2024. "I think for him everything will depend on his health at this point," said Graham, 68. "If he still has the energy and strength like him. I don't." Trump, 74, "doesn't eat well, you know, and so do." is amazing what energy he has, "added Graham. "He's lost, maybe 15 pounds. So maybe he's in good health and in good shape. I don't know."
Graham may be a Trump supporter, but he told Axios he would "absolutely" work with President Biden's administration to encourage people to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
White evangelical Christians are one of the most reluctant groups to get vaccinated, according to several polls. Graham was public about getting himself vaccinated and drew ridicule from many of his followers, but Axios knew he was encouraging people up there to be vaccinated with saving souls. "I want people to know that COVID-19 can kill you. That's why we have a vaccine that could potentially save your life," he said. "And if you wait, it might be too late."
