Prominent evangelist Franklin Graham said Sunday President Donald Trump may not be "the greatest" example of the Christian faith, but lauded him for doing his part "defending the faith and standing strong on that."

In an interview on "Fox & Friends" Sunday, the president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association declared, "This president is defending Christians and he's very open about the Christian faith, so I love that about President Trump."

"At the prayer breakfast a few days ago he was tremendous," Graham continued. "That America is a nation of believers and we're strengthened by the power of prayer, he reminded everyone. And he also reminded us that faith is central to the American life and it is. It's central to our life as a nation and so I'm very, very thankful that Donald Trump takes the stand.

"Many people can condemn him that he is not an example of the Christian faith. Well he may not be the greatest example, well, neither am I, but at least he's defending the faith and standing strong on that."

Other media outlets have been critical of the access Trump has been given by the Christian Broadcasting Network, including NPR, while Atlantic called out Trump's National Prayer Breakfast speech Feb. 1 as a vision for "religious nationalism."
