Donald Trump declined to share his favorite verses from the Bible
Twitter created #TrumpBible to come up with the Gospel according to Trump
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump hasn’t been shy on the campaign trail about his Presbyterian faith.
When asked if he’s ever sought God’s forgiveness he said he drinks “his little wine” and has “his little cracker.”
He’s also professed his love for the Bible on many occasions, calling it “the greatest book of all time.”
But when given the opportunity to share one or two of his favorite Bible verses, he was uncharacteristically mum.
“I wouldn’t want to get into it. Because to me, that’s very personal,” he said. “The Bible means a lot to me, but I don’t want to get into specifics.”
As a result, the Twitterverse decided to do it for him. That’s where #TrumpBible comes in.
Using popular Trump phrases, people are coming up with their own versions of the gospel according to Trump. And, they’re having fun with it. #TrumpBible is still going strong at over 10,000 tweets and counting.
