Famed evangelist sees rain at Trump's inauguration as a 'sign of God's blessing

As the rain began to fall during President Donald Trump's inauguration ceremony, many who do not support the new Republican president took it to be an ominous sign.

However, evangelist Franklin Graham, who offered a prayer during the ceremony at the U.S. Capitol Friday, had a different take on the precipitation.

"Mr. President, in the Bible rain is a sign of of God's blessing, and it started to rain, Mr. President, when you came to the [inaugural] platform," Graham said. "And it's my prayer that God will bless you, your family, your administration, and may he bless America."

Graham then continued to read a passage from 1 Timothy in the Bible.

However, not everyone seems to have the same mindset about the rain as Graham about rain on the inauguration day.

Trump said Thursday evening that he was not worried about the weather.

"The truth is, if it really pours, that's OK, because people will realize that's my real hair," Trump quipped.

But while some may remain skeptical about what Friday's weather could mean, in the words of Luke Bryan, "Rain is a good thing."
