Contributing sentiments towards policy:

80% : ""It's my favorite book," Trump added.
79% : But you might also be thinking of this incredible clip of Trump attempting to name his favorite verse.
67% : Trump is encouraging his supporters to buy a Bible endorsed by himself and Lee Greenwood.
55% : So, I'm sorry, but let me ask again: Is Trump making money off this?The New York Times reports that "according to a person familiar" (classic) Trump will receive royalties from sales.
55% : Not to my knowledge.
52% : One month after releasing a line of gilded high-tops for $399, Donald Trump revealed on Tuesday a new item: the Bible.

47% : Hasn't Trump made headlines before with a Bible?
46% : So, that first question -- what the hell -- but more formally: What exactly is Trump promoting and how much will it cost me to shell out for this?
45% : If you ever want to wallow in political depression, check out this quick compilation.
34% : Throughout the rest of the clip, as if daring us into a collective disgust, Trump swerved through random opportunities to rail against bureaucrats and a country under threat -- all while hawking a holy text.
31% : Trump is in a serious cash crunch.
29% : You're probably recalling that despicable photo-op when Trump held up a Bible in front of St. John's Church, which had been a location of racial justice protests in the days prior.
28% : There was a complicated saga, afterward, about whether or not Trump deployed the police to clear protesters to get to the church.
17% : Wasn't there another time Trump and the Bible made waves for something far more stupid?Christian nationalists adore Trump, so there have probably been many times that Trump has referenced the Bible.
