An evangelical leader who is a member of President Donald Trump’s Religious Advisory Council praised First Daughter and senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump, the Christian Broadcasting Network reported Monday.

Pastor Jack Graham of the Prestonwood Baptist Church received a $50,000 personal donation from Ivanka, who earned $82 million in outside income with her husband Jared Kushner in 2017, while both were working in the White House.

Prestonwood has a long history of anti-LGBT activism.

In 2014, Graham worked to repeal a non-discrimination ordinance in Plano, Texas.

In 2015, Graham lashed at out the Supreme Court for marriage equality.

“This is an old fight dating back to the Garden of Eden when Satan seduced the first family with lies and deception. The same lies are in play today,” Graham wrote. “The biblical design of marriage is clear: a man and a woman living and loving together in a monogamous relationship in the image of God.”

“Gay marriage violates God’s standard and is outside God’s plan for men and women. The Supreme Court of the United States has now reached their goal of legalizing gay marriage in every state in the country,” he continued. “We have set a course for disaster in our beloved nation and there seems to be no turning back.”

Now Graham is praising Ivanka Trump.

“I’ve had the opportunity to meet with Ivanka Trump a number of times over the last year, and I’ve been struck by her kindness and concern for those in need, so, it wasn’t that surprising to know she would want to help these families,” Graham said. “Hopefully, Ivanka’s generosity will inspire many other Americans to get off the sidelines and actually provide tangible help to those in need.”

“The beauty of America and the people in our church is that we don’t have to wait for our politicians to sort out their disagreements in order to do what is right,” said Graham, who has served two terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Graham has been a fierce defender of the president.

In 2016, just before the election, Graham stood by Trump following his “Access Hollywood” comments admitting to sexual assault.

In 2017, following the deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Graham stood by Trump despite the president’s claim that there were “fine people” among the white nationalists.

“I feel like Sophie Scholl, since I've been active in the resistance, giving speeches, going to protests, distributing flyers," the woman says to the audience, referring to the famous "White Rose" resistance fighter who opposed the Nazis during World War II.

The View’s Ana Navarro bashes Republicans refusing to stop Trump: ‘They’re going to go down in shame’

"The View" co-hosts are furious that President Donald Trump is still refusing to stand down after losing the 2020 election. To make matters worse, Republican communications consultant Ana Navarro blames Republicans for allowing the madness to persist for so long that it's now starting to put the United States in a compromised situation.

"Look, I don't know what it's going to take because really it should have happened weeks ago," said Navarro. "States are beginning to certify their results. Electors vote in a couple of weeks, but you know, Whoopi, I keep talking about history and how history is going to judge this. There are going to be books written about this. It's going to be studied by school kids in 30 years and 40 years."

President Donald Trump on Sunday formally exited the Open Skies Treaty, but now he's moving to scrap the planes, ensuring President Joe Biden will not be able to re-enter the program easily.

First proposed in 1992, the treaty was formalized in 2002. 34 nations are party to the agreement, and all are allowed to fly unarmed aircraft over any member nation. The goal is to ensure transparency and mutual understanding.
