LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Seven minutes into the interview, Halerin told Trump, "You have been talking about how [the Bible is] your favorite book," then proceeds to ask, "I'm wondering what one or two of your most favorite Bible verses are."

Trump responded by stating, "Well, I wouldn't want to get into it because that's very personal. You know, when I talk about the Bible it's very personal so I don't want to get into it."

Halperin asked if Trump was more of an "Old Testament guy or New Testament," to which Trump replies, "Probably equal. I think it's just incredible, the whole Bible is incredible."


Trump's refusal to mention a Bible verse has sparked ridicule for the presidential hopeful over Twitter with the Twitter hashtag #TrumpFavoriteBibleVerses.

@jimmiebjr Tweeted, "Eventually, God got around to making humans like you and me. Well, not like you. You're stupid. Like me. Classy. #TrumpFavoriteBibleVerses."

Others joined the fray, such as @jitLOL, Tweeting, "'Do unto others.' Then there was some other stuff after that, it was a while ago.' #TrumpFavoriteBibleVerses."
