Trump Says Graham One Of Few Who Deserve Capitol Honor
President Donald Trump says the Rev. Billy Graham is among the few people who deserve to lie in honor in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda.
Trump tells an annual gathering of conservative activists that few people are afforded the honor and "it's a big thing."
The famous evangelist died Wednesday at his North Carolina home. He was 99.
Trump says he bets the lines of people waiting to enter the Capitol next week to pay respects to Graham "are going to be long and beautiful because he deserves it."
The president says Graham was a "great man" who had a "great family" that was "for us" from the beginning.
Trump did not say whether he would go to the Capitol to pay his respects.
