In response to Walmart selling anti-President Trump impeachment clothing online – “Impeach 45” – evangelical leader Franklin Graham is selling pro-Trump – “Pray for 45” – T-shirts through the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), its online store, store.billygraham.org.

In a July 6 post on Facebook, Rev. Franklin Graham wrote, “There's a way every one of us can make a difference for our nation—we can pray for our president and our leaders, as God's Word instructs us.”

“In contrast to the ‘IMPEACH 45’ T-shirt some were selling, we have a ‘PRAY for 45’ T-shirt you can wear to encourage others to do something constructive—PRAY!” said the reverend.

“God is the hope for our country, and our leaders, including President Donald J. Trump, need our prayers,” he said.  “The bottom line? Prayer can make America great!”

Sold on the Billy Graham bookstore website, the shirts look similar to the ones Walmart had on their site last week.
