Trump Is Pushing $60 Bibles in Pre-Easter Cash Grab

Donald Trump is celebrating the Easter season by hawking $60 Bibles.

Trump posted a video Tuesday to Truth Social promoting the “God Bless The USA Bible,” named in partnership with pro-MAGA songwriter Lee Greenwood. The leatherbound volumes run for $60 each, not including tax or shipping.

“Religion and Christianity are the biggest things missing from this country, and I truly believe that we need to bring them back,” Trump said in the video.

Trump, who once posed for a photo op holding the Bible upside down, said he has many Bibles in his home and called it his favorite book. “It’s very important to me. I want to have a lot of people … have it … you have to have it for your heart and for your soul,” he stammers in the video.

In addition to the King James Version translation of the holy text, the book contains everything a true American patriot would want in their Bible, including a copy of the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Pledge of Allegiance. In line with its namesake, the book will also have a “handwritten chorus” of “God Bless the USA” by Lee Greenwood.

Though the book’s website claims it is “the only Bible endorsed by President Trump,” it dismisses any official affiliation with Trump’s campaign.

“No, GodBlessTheUSABible.com is not political and has nothing to do with any political campaign,” the website’s FAQ reads, adding a legal disclaimer that the book is merely using Trump’s name and likeness as a paid license. The FAQ also addresses the question: “WHAT IF MY BIBLE HAS STICKY PAGES?”

The FAQ adds that “GodBlessTheUSABible.com uses Donald J. Trump’s name, likeness and image under paid license from CIC Ventures LLC, which license may be terminated or revoked according to its terms.”

The Bibles are the latest wares Trump is trying to sell to his supporters, less than a week after he tried fundraising off his failed attempts to secure a bond in his civil fraud case. He notoriously offered $399 gold sneakers last month, which were parodied by Saturday Night Live in a sketch called “White Men Can Trump.” He has also been selling a ludicrous line of “digital trading cards.”

Unfortunately, those hoping to get their hands on a Trump Bible by Easter Sunday might be out of luck: the website said to allow up to 4-6 weeks for delivery “due to high order volume.”
