A month after Trump beat Democrat Hillary Clinton, Graham joined then-President-elect Trump at a rally in Mobile, Ala. The evangelist told the crowd that he believed God had intervened in the election to give Trump the win.
Trump later tapped Graham to be one of six clergy to offers prayers and read from scripture at the presidential inauguration in January.
Though Graham did not officially endorse Trump for president during last year’s campaign, it was clear that he agreed with Trump on most issues and considered the Republican nominee the best bet for conservative Christians.
How Franklin Graham differs with Donald Trump on one thing heavenward

La administración Trump es altamente conservadora y cristiana, tan es así que los pastores cristianos de diferentes nominaciones religiosas lo endosaron durante la campaña, por otro lado la Iglesia Católica, representada por el Papa Francisco y sus obispos, no lo endosó. Al parecer algunas iglesias evangélicas tampoco y la pregunta es ¿por qué?
Trump ha defendido el matrimonio tradicional, canceló la fiesta de los gays en la Casa Blanca, no apoya el aborto y le van a recortar fondos sino eliminarlos a Planned Parenthood, nombró un juez al Tribunal Supremo que es conservador, lo más importante, restableció conceptos de Dios en el gobierno que los demócratas en su falsa excusa de separación iglesia y estado, censuraron.
‘We Must Fight Them’: Trump Goes After Conservatives of Freedom Caucus
By GLENN THRUSH and JONATHAN MARTINMARCH 30, 2017
WASHINGTON — President Trump launched a vengeful tirade against conservatives in his own party on Thursday in an attempt to kick-start health care talks and show that he remains a force to be feared in the looming battles over the budget, a tax overhaul and infrastructure.
In an early morning Twitter attack, Mr. Trump singled out members of the House Freedom Caucus, which scuttled his health care overhaul last week. “The Freedom Caucus will hurt the entire Republican agenda if they don’t get on the team, & fast,” he wrote. “We must fight them, & Dems, in 2018!”...
If the back and forth between Mr. Trump and the House hard-liners inflamed tensions between the president and some of his most loyal, if not exactly ideologically aligned, congressional supporters, it bound the president more closely to Mr. Ryan, reinforcing the most unlikely of shotgun political marriages.
“I understand the president’s frustration,” Mr. Ryan told reporters on Thursday when asked about the president’s morning Twitter attack. “I share frustration.”
The bill, he said, “doesn’t fully repeal Obamacare. This bill doesn’t lower premiums, and probably most importantly, this bill doesn’t unite Republicans and the American people,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom.”
”[W]e appreciate the president, we’re trying to help the president, but the fact is you’ve got to look at the legislation,” Jordan continued. “And it doesn’t do what we told the voters we were going to do, and the American people understand that.”
Trump's House Freedom Caucus tweet draws response from conservative members

Now I don’t know who’s telling the White House to focus their anger on the Freedom Caucus, but I do think it’s misplaced. Because the Freedom Caucus, I’ve talked to them, they want to make a deal, and they want the win for the president and the country. So my advice tonight to Speaker [Paul] Ryan and to Congress is simple. House leadership, you need to get all the differing factions in your caucus together.
“Get them together with senators like Rand Paul and Mike Lee, Mitch McConnell, Secretary Price,” Hannity advised, “I’ve said this before: Get all the factions, the moderates, the Tuesday Group, the Study Group, the Freedom Caucus; get everybody in a room, lock the door, order pizza, get beer, get ice cream. I don’t care if you include coloring books. Get a consensus bill like you’ve been promising the country for eight years, and get it done and get it on the president’s desk.”
Sean Hannity to Trump: You Are Wrong to Blame the Freedom Caucus for AHCA Failure

Atacar el presidente como el responsable de todo, o dar por sentado de que es un corrupto y obrará mal, no es una postura inteligente cuando en un gobierno hay una cadena de personas que intervienen en la solución de los problemas, negocian y hacen alianzas, versus una prensa que informa la mayoría de las veces a favor de un sector ideológico, o el propio y cuyo único fin es ganar dinero, como cualquier negocio con fines de lucro.
We are hopeful that when everyone returns from their holiday break on July 10th that there’s an amazing revelation. That we learn that cooler heads have prevailed, and that the impossible was actually made possible. That Republicans and Democrats secretly got together during their break and had a collaborative discussion about what is a realistic, long term goal, for a better version of healthcare reform in the United States of America.
Because if there is no real effort to find a middle-ground, one that involves a timeline and roadmap that extends beyond two or four years, it is very likely that all of the major insurance carriers that would need to participate if we’re going to have a competitive marketplace with actual, affordable healthcare, just won’t.
