Evangelical leader Franklin Graham has spoken his mind once again regarding United States politics. While appearing on The O’Reilly Factor, the son of Billy Graham said that he believes that the U.S. is unwilling to fight ISIS because Muslims have "infiltrated" the White House. 

 

"One of the problems we have in the West is our governments, especially in Washington, have been infiltrated by Muslims who are advising the White House," Graham said on the Fox show. 

 

"I'm not saying they're sitting next to the president whispering in his ear, but they are in the halls, and they are speaking to the staffers." 

 

Charisma News reports Graham did not name any politicians specifically. 

 

Graham also recently defended Rudy Giuliani’s comment that he did not believe President Barack Obama loves his country. 

 

The former New York Mayor had criticized the President’s speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, arguing that Obama should have criticized the Islamic extremism that is at the root of ISIS. 

 

"What's wrong with (the president) that he can't stand up and say there's a part of Islam that's sick?" Giuliani said. "I do not believe that the president loves America. 

 

Graham defended Giuliani’s words via Facebook post last week writing, "Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has taken a lot of heat from the media for his remark that he's not sure if President Obama really loves America. I don't know if that's true or not, but I do know that the president defends Islam and chastises Christians, rebukes our allies and befriends our enemies, and fully supports gay marriages and abortion but denies the religious freedoms of those who don't agree. Our nation is ridiculed abroad and morally crumbling within. We are in trouble. We have turned our back on God.”
