Biden: I almost wanted to buy Trump Bible ‘just to see what the hell’s in it’

President Biden mocked former President Trump on Tuesday for hawking Bibles last month and eviscerated the presumptive GOP nominee over his abortion record.

Biden, visiting Trump’s home state of Florida, delivered remarks in which he squarely blamed Trump for the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade and the subsequent state-level abortion restrictions put in place by GOP-led legislatures.

“He described the Dobbs decision as a miracle,” Biden, a church-going Catholic, said of Trump, referring to the June 2022 Supreme Court ruling that ended Roe v. Wade.

“Maybe it’s coming from that Bible he’s trying to sell. I almost wanted to buy one just to see what the hell’s in it,” Biden added, drawing laughter from the crowd. “Folks, it was no miracle. It was a political deal … he made with the evangelical base of the Republican Party to look past his moral and character flaws in exchange for his commitment to appoint justices to the Supreme Court who would overturn Roe.”

Trump in March promoted “God Bless the USA” Bibles in the days leading up to Easter. He encouraged supporters to buy the $60 Bibles, named for the Lee Greenwood song that plays at Trump’s rallies.

“I’m proud to endorse and encourage you to get this Bible. We must make America pray again,” Trump said in a video promoting the book.

The New York Times reported that Trump was not personally selling the Bibles, but he was getting royalties from purchases.

Trump has frequently presented himself as a defender of Christian values and has claimed Democrats are persecuting Christians. But some conservatives criticized him for commodifying the Bible during Holy Week.
