Franklin Graham: Trump's win was the result of God answering prayers

God had a hand in electing Donald Trump to the White House, Franklin Graham, son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, said on "Fox and Friends" Sunday.

Graham explained that the common theme he experienced during the 2016 election season — as he held prayer meetings in all 50 state capitals — is that Americans feel that their country is heading in the wrong direction and want intervention from God to turn things around.

He said that Americans are tired of the "secularist" federal government that has a "humanistic, atheist" agenda.

"They were praying that God would change this and put somebody in the White House that believed in God, and would listen to God's voice," Graham said.

And according to Graham, those prayers were answered last November.

"I believe — no question — that God's hand was in it," he said.

Still, Graham went on to explain that America is still in "great trouble," citing the divisiveness that continues to plague Americans.

Graham also said that he hopes America can come together "as Americans" for Trump's inauguration like the country has for past presidents, including President Barack Obama.

"Now, we need to help this nation move forward," he said.
