"For far too long the United States has poured countless millions of dollars into a United Nations that fights against American interests, pacifies global tyrants, promotes anti-Semitism and mismanages humanitarian crises," Jeffress claimed. "President Trump's inaugural visit to the U.N. General Assembly represents a day of reckoning for a near hopeless bureaucracy, and his inaugural speech was the most courageous speech ever delivered by any President to address that global body. Thank God for a President who will call evil 'evil.' Today, Trump was Churchill."
Along with Pastor Jeffress, evangelist Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham, offered his staunch support of the President’s speech:
“[the President’s] address today to the United Nations General Assembly may have been one of the best speeches ever given to that body. It made you proud to be an American. I hope you will join me in praying for this man, that God will guide and direct him. He reminded the world, 'If the righteous many do not confront the wicked few, then evil will triumph.'"
