Donald Trump Religion

Donald Trump - Religion

Donald Trump ReligionWhat is the religion of President Donald Trump? Is he really a Christian?

Before he became president, Donald Trump made these claims about his religion to a Christian reporter:

"I'm a Protestant. I'm a Presbyterian. And you know, I've had a good relationship with the church over the years. I think religion is a wonderful thing. I think my religion is a wonderful religion." - Donald Trump, Christian Broadcasting Network, April 11, 2011

President Donald Trump still claims he is a Presbyterian, but his actions and what he has been saying about his religion do raise questions about his religious upbringing and status.

When Donald Trump was a child, his mother Mary Ann took him and his four siblings to the First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica Queens, NY (see Donald Trump Background). When Donald Trump was a young adult, his family switched to Manhattan's Marble Collegiate Church 'pastored' by Norman Vincent Peale, a 33rd degree Scottish Rite Freemason and New Ager best known for authoring The Power of Positive Thinking.

Does President Trump attend church today?

When the aforementioned reporter asked him in 2011 if he attends church actively, Donald Trump sounded confident about Christmas, Easter and "major" occasions, but less so about Sundays:

"Well, I go as much as I can, always on Christmas, always on Easter, always when there's a major occasion, and during the Sundays. I'm a Sunday church person. I'll go when I can."

Does President Trump read the Bible?

In the same interview, Donald Trump said that many people send him Bibles. When asked where those Bibles are, he replied that he stores, gives away, and does nothing "negative" to the Bibles:

"Well, actually, we keep them in a certain place, a very, very nice place. But people send me Bibles. And you know, it's very interesting. I get so much mail, and because, like, you know, I'm in this incredible location in Manhattan, you can't keep most of the mail you get. There's no way I would ever throw anything, to do negative to a Bible, so what we do is we keep all of the Bibles. I would have a fear of doing something other than very positive, so actually I store them and keep them and sometimes give them away to other people but I do get sent a lot of Bibles and I like that. I think that's great.” - Donald Trump, Christian Broadcasting Network, April 11, 2011
