FREE Catholic Classes
During an interview with Bloomberg's Mark Halerin and John Heilemann, presidential candidate, Donald Trump was asked to name his favorite Bible verse but refused to name one.
Donald Trump claims the Bible is his favorite book.
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."
