Sarah Palin Washington, Apr 25 (ANI): Reverend Franklin Graham, the influential and controversial pastor who travelled to Haiti with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, has said she would not be running for the 2012 presidential polls.

Graham said the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate “likes speaking on the issues, and I agree with many of the issues she brings up. I don’t see her as running for president,” Politico reports.

Talking about other potential presidential candidates, he said Mitt Romney has “proven himself” and is “a very capable person,” adding that he was surprised to hear that Donald Trump was attempting to run.

“Donald Trump, when I first saw that he was getting in, I thought ‘Well this has got to be a joke. But the more you listen to him, the more you say to yourself, ‘You know maybe the guy’s right,’” Graham added.

On being asked whether he might support Trump, Graham said, “Sure, yeah. Sure.” (ANI)
