Trump on His Favorite Bible Verse: ‘That’s Personal’

Wednesday on Bloomberg TV’s “With All Due Respect,” host Mark Halperin and John Heilemann asked Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump what his favorite Bible verse is.

Trump has said many times on the campaign trail the Bible is his favorite book.

Heilemann asked, “You mentioned the Bible and talked about how it was your favorite book and you said, I think last night on in Iowa, some people are surprised you say that. I am wondering what one or two of your most favorite Bible verses are and why?”

Trump answered, “I wouldn’t want to get into it because to me that’s very personal. You know when I talk about the Bible it’s very personal.I don’t want to get into it.”

Heilemann asked, “There no verse that means a lot to you that you think about about or cite?”

Trump continued, “The Bible means a lot to me but I don’t want to get into specifics.”

Heilemann said, “Even to cite a verse that you like?”

Mark Halperin chimed in, “Are you an Old Testament guy or a New Testament guy?”

Trump said, “Probably equal — I think it’s just incredible– the whole Bible is incredible. I joke when they hold up ‘The Art of The Deal,’ that is my second favorite book of all time. I think the Bible is something very special.”
