In the 2015 interview on Bloomberg Politics that Twitter user @Caring_Atheist shared online Wednesday, Trump (who’d earlier called the Bible his favorite book) appears reluctant to reveal his favorite verses.
“Because to me that’s very personal,” Trump sidesteps. “You know, when I talk about the Bible it’s very personal so I don’t want to get into verses. The Bible means a lot to me but I don’t want to get into specifics.”
When asked if he’s a bigger fan of the Old Testament or the New Testament, Trump says he’s “probably equal.”
“I think it’s just incredible, the whole Bible is incredible,” he added.
Check out the clip here:

I assume this was a sketch cut from SNL, where they decided that Alec Baldwin’s Trump character was so blatantly lying about having ever read the bible, or gone in fact near any book at all, that it just got stupid. https://t.co/FejWkQnQg5

“What’s your favourite song?”
“I don’t want to get into specifics?”
“I Want To Hold Your Hand?”
“I’d rather not, but I’m known as very good for the gays.”
“Most days really. Very good for them.”
