President Donald Trump will attend the Rev. Billy Graham’s funeral on March 2, according to a report by WBTV.

Graham, a counselor to a number of presidents, was admired by Trump. After news of Graham’s death spread, Trump tweeted that “there was nobody like him. He will be missed by Christians and all religions. A very special man.”

In a statement, Trump said Graham’s “unshakeable belief” and message that “God loves you” endeared him to all.

“He carried this message around the world through his crusades, bringing entire generations to faith in Jesus Christ.”
