Evangelist Franklin Graham is fed up with "the insults, the back-stabbing, the dirty tricks, and the name-calling," imploring the remaining candidates running for president to "drop the childish bickering."

Graham, who published a strongly worded message to his Facebook page on Wednesday, said that the behavior on display this election cycle is not befitting of individuals seeking to occupy the highest office in the land.

"I’m calling for a truce! A time out," he said. "A halt to the insults, the back-stabbing, the dirty tricks, and the name-calling that has been spewing from most of the presidential candidates."

Graham continued, "The campaign for the highest office in our land has stooped to a new low — and it’s not something to be proud of. Seriously."

He then proceeded to call on the candidates to stop bickering and to focus on the issues that truly impact the nation — issues that will have profound implications for future generations.

"Otherwise America is ultimately the loser," he said. "It’s obvious that this country is in trouble — spiritually, morally, and politically."

As TheBlaze previously reported, Graham also took aim at the Girl Scouts of the USA this week, decrying the organization's stance on controversial issues like transgender identity and homosexuality.
