Evangelical pastor Franklin Graham told Axios on Sunday that Donald Trump launching a bid for the White House in 2024 would “be a very tough thing to do,” citing his health.
Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse, was among Trump’s earliest and most prominent evangelical defenders, Axios noted.
“I think for him, everything will depend on his health at that time. If he still has energy and strength like he does. I don’t,” he said. “You know the guy does not eat well, you know, and it’s amazing the energy that he has.”
“He’s lost weight, fifteen pounds, Maybe. So he might be in good health and in good shape. I don’t know,” Graham added.
In 2024, Trump would be 78-years-old, the same age as now President Joe Biden was when he was elected in 2020.
