After House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said President Donald Trump was “fiddling” in his early response to the coronavirus, Rev. Franklin Graham wondered if Pelosi was doing exactly what she accused the President of by wasting days trying to load up the coronavirus bill with pork.

‘She was ‘fiddling’ with the economic stimulus package’

“I wonder what Nancy Pelosi was doing?” wrote Graham on his Facebook page on March 30.  “It could be said that she was the one who caused delays in people getting the help they need because she was ‘fiddling’ with the economic stimulus package, trying to work in political agendas and funding for pet projects.”

‘Pray for President Trump’

“It could be said that she was the one who caused delays in people getting the help they need because she was ‘fiddling’ with the economic stimulus package, trying to work in political agendas and funding for pet projects,” Graham said. “Pray for President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and all of the governors and mayors who are leading their states and cities as they face many very long days and tough decisions. They need God’s help and wisdom. Also pray for the medical professionals in the front lines of this battle day in and day out.”
