CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Franklin Graham made a stop in Charlotte on his Decision America tour across North Carolina on Saturday.
Thousands packed the PNC Music Pavillion to hear him speak.
Graham is an outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump but has said his tour is not about politics. He says the country is in trouble morally, spiritually and politically and that neither Republicans nor Democrats can fix the country's problems, but that "faith in God" can.
"The problems that we face in this country are not going to be solved by politicians, only God can solve the problems of this country," Graham said. "That's why I think it's so important that we pray, and we will do that today."
Graham said he believes the climate of the country isn't at its best right now, and encouraged people to pray for policies and politicians. Additionally, Graham said he believes the Republican National Convention next year will be a great opportunity to showcase the Queen City.
"I think it's a great opportunity just to let the world see what a great city we have," Graham said.
Charlotte is the second to last stop on the tour, with the final stop in Asheville at the US Cellular Center Asheville on October 13 at 4 p.m.
