Franklin Graham, one of the nation's most prominent Christian leaders, said Wednesday on the "Todd Starnes Radio Show" that the Trump presidency faces a grave domestic threat.
"I believe we are in a coup d'etat," Graham told Starnes. "There are people in this country who are wanting to destroy the president and take over the government by force."
Graham, the president and CEO of Samaritan's Purse, warned that there are forces at work who want to "wrestle control of the government" away from Trump.
"They are not going to use bullets. They are using the media—to plant thoughts in people's minds that he's incompetent, that he's dangerous, that you can't trust him with nuclear weapons, that he is mentally unstable," Graham said.
Graham called on the nation to pray for the president and the vice president.
"We need to pray for those that surround the president that God will protect them and keep them safe," he said.
"I believe that he's the president of this nation because God allowed it," Graham. "And I think on election night, God intervened. He wasn't supposed to win —he was supposed to lose. And I think it was God who worked in a mysterious way on election night to turn the tables.
