“I’m so excited that the president isn’t afraid to mention the name of Jesus Christ and that he boldly stands for not only Christ but all religious freedom, and it’s refreshing to have a president who’s just not afraid and doesn’t care what all the liberals think,” Graham said on Fox News’s “Fox & Friends.”

Graham, the son of the evangelist Billy Graham and president of Samaritan’s Purse, praised the president for following through on his promise that “people will be saying merry Christmas again” upon taking office.

Trump claims the practice of saying “happy holidays” is a product of “political correctness.”
