Rev. Franklin Graham reacted to President Trump's emphasis on the importance of mentioning Christmas during the holiday season.

"The only thing missing are the words 'Merry Christmas'," Trump said in a speech on December 8. "They're using those words again."

Graham said it is important that Trump and others spread the word that "Christmas is really about the birth of Jesus Christ, and that's what we're all celebrating." 

"Christmas is all about Christ," Graham said. "I'm so excited that the president isn't afraid to mention the name of Jesus Christ."

Graham said Trump continues to take a "bold" stand for religious freedom for all beliefs, and not just Christianity.

"This was a nation that was born for religious freedom," he said.

Graham added that religion in the public square is under attack from secularist forces, like those who have sued over private businesses making decisions based on their personal beliefs.

He also gave an update on his father, Rev. Billy Graham, who turned 99 in November.

Franklin said that Billy Graham's mind continues to be "sharp" and that he values everything the elder Graham has accomplished in his life.
