While Christian evangelist Billy Graham has met with many former presidents, the first president he met was Harry Truman. While Eisenhower and Johnson considered Graham one of their closest friends, Truman was far from impressed. Truman would later say "He claims he's a friend of all the Presidents, but he was never a friend of mine when I was President. I just don't go for people like that. All he's interested in is getting his name in the paper."
