Donald Trump's Favorite Bible Verses

As you probably known, the presumptive Republican nominee for President is a tremendous Bible reader. “Nobody reads the Bible more than me,” he told Pat Robertson last February. This is one of the reasons, no doubt, that so many evangelicals have supported Mr. Trump: his tremendous love for God’s word.

Sometimes Mr. Trump has declined to mention his favorite Bible verses because “that’s very personal,” and everybody knows that Mr. Trump is a private person and doesn’t like to share anything that’s personal. (For example, his modest comments about his "hand size.")

But I’m happy to report that in an exclusive to this blog I have been able to obtain* our Presumptive Wall-Builder in Chief’s top Scripture verses. You may want to write these down for your own study later.

Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top to the heavens, and let us put our name on the tower, in yuge letters.” And the Lord came down to see the tower, and could hardly believe it. It was good, so good, just tremendous. “It’s yuge!” God said. (Jenesiss 11:4-5)

When he was reviled, he reviled ten times harder in return. Even if he wasn’t reviled, he preemptively reviled those who opposed him. When he suffered, you better believe he threatened, and continued to entrust himself to his twitter feed, which was yuge. (One Pete 2:23)

The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. And yet I’ve never done anything to need forgiveness. I’m very good and very smart. (One Timmy 1:15)

He who makes peace between the people by inventing good information or saying good things, is not a liar.  (Bukhari 49:857…I admit this is a Muslim Scripture, but hey, it is tremendous.)

The great thing about the upcoming Presidential race is that Hillary Clinton, too, loves the Bible. "The Bible was and remains the biggest influence on my thinking," Mrs. Clinton told the New York Times in 2014. Kinda nice to know that, either way, our country is in good hands. (Not small hands, either. Guaranteed.)
