Donald Trump Now Selling Bibles?

Donald Trump is promoting a line of pricey Bibles in a partnership with country music star Lee Greenwood.

The “God Bless the U.S.A. Bible” costs $59.99, not including shipping and other fees, according to its website.

The partnership comes as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has seen his net worth explode by billions of dollars on paper while he appeals massive civil penalties in multiple courts.

On Tuesday March 26, Donald Trump started promoting a line of these pricey Bibles with Lee Greenwood, whose song “God Bless the U.S.A.” is omnipresent at the former president’s political rallies.

“All Americans need a Bible in their home, and I have many,” Trump said in a video on Truth Social announcing the business deal.

“It’s my favorite book. It’s a lot of people’s favorite book,” he added.

“Religion and Christianity are the biggest things missing from this country, and I truly believe that we need to bring them back,” he said. “It’s one of the biggest problems we have. That’s why our country’s going haywire — we’ve lost religion in our country.”

The widespread Christian holy text is the world’s bestselling book, and churches are often more than happy to hand them out for free. The Bible is also free to read on a wide range of websites and apps, not to mention hotel rooms and other places.

The “God Bless the U.S.A. Bible” costs $59.99. For that money, buyers get a range of extra features not typically included in run-of-the-mill Bibles.

The Trump-Greenwood Bible, a King James translation, includes a copy of a “handwritten chorus” to the eponymous Greenwood hit, according to the website.

It also includes the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence and the Pledge of Allegiance, the site says.

It’s the “only Bible” endorsed by either Trump or Greenwood, the site proclaims. It adds, it’s “the ONLY Bible inspired by America’s most recognized patriotic anthem, God Bless The USA.”

The text is also printed in a large font that highlights the words of Jesus in red, per the site.

It was not promptly clear how much money Trump and Greenwood remained to make off the promotion.

The partnership comes at an especially turbulent moment for Trump’s finances.

The presumptive Republican presidential nominee has recently seen his net worth explode by billions of dollars, following a successful merger allowing his media company to publicly trade on the Nasdaq.

But, he can’t capitalize on his stake in that frame of mind for quite a long time. Meanwhile, he has only days to set up $175 million for an allure bond that will stop the territory of New York from implementing a $454 million common extortion judgment against him.

Trump is also fighting other hefty civil judgments, including a federal jury verdict ordering him to pay $83.3 million for defaming writer E. Jean Carroll after she accused the former president of raping her years ago.

Trump’s political fundraising operation, meanwhile, is falling far behind the campaign of his rival, Democratic incumbent President Joe Biden. Trump said Monday that he “might” put his own money into his White House bid.

The site selling the Trump-upheld Books of scriptures indicates that none of its returns will go toward the Trump camping.

The site says it “isn’t political and doesn’t have anything to do with any political campaign.”

“ isn’t owned, or controlled by Donald J. Trump, The Trump Association, CIC Adventures LLC or any of their separate directors or subsidiaries.”

Rather, it says it is licensed by CIC Ventures to use Trump’s name, likeness and image.

Trump’s 2023 financial disclosure shows he has made more than $5 million in speaking engagements through CIC Ventures.
