Franklin Graham Posts His Own Trump Shirt After Walmart Rolls Out Disgusting 'Impeach 45' Line


Walmart recently came under fire after it was discovered that they were selling clothing that bore the message “Impeach 45,” an obvious shot against President Donald Trump.

Breitbart reported that Walmart quickly caved under immense pressure and threats of a boycott and rapidly announced that they had pulled the offending line of clothing from their online store, and attempted to distance themselves by claiming the items had been offered by a third-party vendor and not Walmart itself.

But in the meantime, a rather prominent and faithful supporter of the president responded to Walmart’s anti-Trump shirts with a pro-Trump shirt bearing a much more positive message with regard to the president.

Franklin Graham posted to Facebook on Tuesday that the Billy Graham Bookstore, known as Ruth’s Attic, was now selling a shirt that read “Pray for 45,” and cited the scripture of 1 Timothy 2:1-2.

Walmart was in the news for selling a t-shirt online that promotes “IMPEACH 45." They’re referring to President Donald…

Those particular verses in the NIV Bible state: “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people — for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”

The shirts sell for $15.99, and a product description on the bookstore website reads: “The Bible says to pray for “all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence” (1 Timothy 2:2, NKJV). Wear this t-shirt as a reminder to lift up our president in prayer.”

In a similar post to Facebook on Friday, Graham wrote, “There’s a way every one of us can make a difference for our nation — we can pray for our president and our leaders, as God’s Word instructs us.”

“In contrast to the ‘IMPEACH 45’ T-shirt some were selling, we have a ‘PRAY for 45’ T-shirt you can wear to encourage others to do something constructive — PRAY!” he continued.

Do you like Franklin Graham's "Pray for 45" shirts as a response to Walmart's "Impeach 45" shirts?

“God is the hope for our country, and our leaders, including President Donald J. Trump, need our prayers. The bottom line? Prayer can make America great!” Graham added.

This is an excellent way to respond to the increasingly vitriolic opposition shown toward our nation’s president, a true example of how “love trumps hate,” to borrow an incredibly misused phrase from the Democrats.

Indeed, just as Trump requires political support to sustain him amid incessant attacks from elected Democrats, the liberal media and liberals across Hollywood and academia, he also requires spiritual support to aid him as well.

Bear in mind, the message of “Pray for 45” is also not solely confined to Trump’s supporters, but equally applies to those who are ambivalent or even opposed to the president, as Trump remains their president despite any tantrums or proclamations to the contrary.

Yes, even those who don’t particularly care for or stand in staunch opposition to the president should nevertheless pray for him, that he will seek the Lord’s guidance in his decisions and govern this great nation in a wise manner.

Franklin Graham has long been a supporter of President Trump and isn’t afraid to speak out in the president’s defense when he is under attack, and that is exactly what he has done here.
