"My Jesus that I follow was really somebody who fought for the outliers, and I think that Trump has actually done the opposite in kind of ostracizing them," she asserted.
This isn't Armfield's first public criticism of her uncle's support for Trump. In January, she told The Washington Post that Graham's claim that Trump is an ambassador for Jesus "diminishes not only my Jesus but all he stood for and came to Earth to fight against" and that Trump "encouraged racism, sexism and intolerance, exactly what Jesus taught against."
Graham, who encouraged values-voters to support Trump in the 2016 election, said in a December Facebook post, "Never in my lifetime have we had a president willing to take a strong, outspoken stand for the Christian faith like President Donald J. Trump has."
"Whether you are Protestant, evangelical, Orthodox, Catholic — all Christians need to get behind him with our prayers," he added.
Billy Graham's extended family, including his many grandsons and granddaughters, have often shared differing opinions regarding Trump, politics, and evangelicalism.
Boz Tchividjian, executive director of Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment and one of Billy Graham's grandsons, said in November that he no longer identifies as an evangelical.
"Words matter," Tchividjian said. "And evangelical isn't like Baptist or Episcopalian, which can be clearly defined. The minute you use that term to someone, you're defined by how they interpret it."
Tchividjian laments that contemporary culture has given mixed connotations to the label and that, ultimately, faith should not be dictated by politics: "We're looking at faith through a political lens, and that's unfortunate and dangerous."
