Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse, told Axios on HBO in an interview posted Sunday, “I think for him [Trump], everything will depend on his health at that time, if he still has energy and strength like he does. I don’t.”
Graham, a longtime supporter of Trump, added, “The guy does not eat well, you know, and it’s amazing the energy that he has.”
“He’s lost weight, 15 pounds, maybe. So he might be in good health and in good shape. I don’t know,” he said.

Graham during an interview clip released last week with Axios on HBO also encouraged more Christians to get the COVID-19 vaccine, warning that if they wait too long for their shot, “it could be too late.”
“I want people to know that COVID-19 can kill you,” he continued. “But we have a vaccine out there that could possibly save your life. And if you wait, it could be too late.”
