Pres. Trump Pays Tribute To The Late Reverend Billy Graham, Says He Changed Our Country

President Trump paid tribute to the late Reverend Billy Graham Wednesday morning, where he said the reverend’s religious devotion has changed our country forever.
“Today we give thanks for this extraordinary life and it is very fitting that we do so, right here in the Rotunda of the United States Capitol, where the memory of the American people is enshrined,” said President Trump.

The president, Vice President Mike Pence, and hundreds of lawmakers gathered to pay their respects to “America’s pastor” as his body lies in honor in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.
Graham is the fourth private citizen to receive this honor.
Rosa Parks was the last private citizen honored in the Rotunda after her death in 2005.
President Trump called Graham a legendary American figure.
Graham’s funeral will be held Friday in Charlotte, North Carolina with President Trump expected to attend.
The reverend died last week at the age of 99.
