Billy Graham's Granddaughter: Evangelicals Supporting Trump Are 'Hypocritical,' He's Jesus' Opposite (PJ Media)

On Tuesday, Billy Graham's granddaughter attacked evangelicals who support President Donald Trump as "hypocritical," claiming that the president actually represents the opposite of Jesus' message.

"My president doesn't have to be a Christ follower. My president doesn't have to be a Christian," Jerushah Armfield, the granddaughter of the famous evangelist, told CNN's Pamela Brown on Tuesday. "However, I think my rub is when the evangelicals are coming up and posing [Trump] as the godly candidate."

Of Donald Trump, she said, "I think we can look at his life, look at the intolerance that he's spoken, I think that my Jesus that I follow was really somebody who fought for the outliers, and I think that Trump has actually done the opposite — kind of ostracizing them."
