The United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Secretary, Ben Carson, called for all Christians to pray for President Donald Trump in response to the controversy over a Christian Times’ Op-Ed calling for his removal.

Carson issued a spate of messages on Twitter, Sunday, Dec. 22, wherein he called for every man and woman of faith to pray for the president, instead of “casting stones.”

Carson also wrote:

“I know @realDonaldTrump. He is a good, caring man and someone that puts our country’s trust in God. He understands the rights of every American come from our Creator.”

“I believe God’s providence was very much part of him becoming our Commander-in-Chief, and he understands the importance of making sure our Judeo-Christian values remain the core component of our country’s foundation.”

“Men and women of faith should be praying for our President @realDonaldTrump, not casting stones.

Carson’s support of his friend Donald Trump came after periodical Christianity Today published an op-ed calling for Trump’s removal on Dec. 19.

One day later, in a lengthy Facebook post on Dec. 20, Franklin Graham, son of Christianity Today’s founder Billy Graham responded to the editorial by editor-in-chief Mark Galli, titled “Trump should be removed from office.”

“Yes, my father Billy Graham founded Christianity Today,” he continued, “but no, he would not agree with their opinion piece. My father knew Donald Trump, he believed in Donald Trump, and he voted for Donald Trump. He believed that Donald J. Trump was the man for this hour in history for our nation.”

“This impeachment was politically motivated, 100 percent partisan,” Graham continued. “Why would Christianity Today choose to take the side of the Democrat left whose only goal is to discredit and smear the name of a sitting president? They want readers to believe the Democrat leadership rather than believe the president of the United States.”

The day before, on Thursday, the day after the historic House impeachment voting, Christianity Today published the remarkable politically inspired editorial.
