Franklin Graham Slams Meryl Streep for Trump Bashing at Golden Globes, Calls for Unity

Leah Marieann Klett : Jan 9, 2017 : Gospel Herald

"I say, let's get behind our new President-elect and Vice President-elect Mike Pence and move forward together as a country. They've already made a lot of progress before even officially taking office, and let's pray they continue to make positive changes for the future of America."

"The news this morning on the Golden Globes isn't about which films won or lost, but about Meryl Streep's 6-minute speech condemning Donald J. Trump," the leader of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse wrote in a Monday Facebook post.
