In response to CNN accusing the president of peddling "false hope" against the coronavirus pandemic, Christian leader Franklin Graham noted how President Trump has put America on a "war-time footing" and said, "Thank God we have a Commander in Chief who knows how to take charge and stand with hope in front of dark clouds of despair" on the horizon. 

On Friday, CNN ran a headline that said, "Trump peddles unsubstantiated hope in dark times." This was in response to Trump saying he had a "good feeling" about a malaria drug that is going to be tested against the coronavirus.

Trump, standing next to Dr. Anthony Fauci at the White House, did not say the drug would cure the virus.  He said, "It may work. It may not work. I feel good about it." Fauci also made no promises. In the article by Stephen Collinson, CNN claimed Trump was "adopting the audacity of false hope."

In a Friday post on Facebook, Rev. Franklin Graham said, "CNN is now accusing President Trump of peddling false hope. The truth is, America does need hope now."

"The President has put our country on war-time footing," said Graham.  "He has cut through red tape. He has directed suppliers to produce the medical equipment and supplies we need. He has taken measures with travel and more to protect our citizens."

"I thank God that we have a Commander in Chief who knows how to take charge and stand with hope in front of dark clouds of despair and hopelessness looming on the horizon," said Graham.  "Thank you President Donald J. Trump!"


Graham added, "As a Christian, I know that ultimately my hope comes from God, through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. It is my prayer that as individuals, and as a nation, we will turn to Him."
