Trump is selling ‘God Bless USA’ Bibles

(The Hill) – Former President Trump made a pitch Tuesday for "God Bless USA" Bibles that he is selling in partnership with country musician Lee Greenwood ahead of Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

“Religion and Christianity are the biggest things missing from this country. And I truly believe that we need to bring them back and have to bring them back fast,” Trump said in a video shared to his Truth Social site. “I think it’s one of the biggest problems we have. That’s why our country is going haywire. We’ve lost religion in our country.”

The former president said every American needs to have a Bible in their home — and he has many copies available.

“It’s my favorite book,” he said, later adding, “We have to bring Christianity back into our lives and back into what will be again a great nation.”

The $60 Bible will include a copy of Greenwood’s “God Bless the U.S.A.,” as well as the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence and the Pledge of Allegiance.

Trump commended the Founding Fathers for doing “a tremendous thing when they built America on Judeo-Christian values” but said that foundation is under attack.

“I’m proud to endorse and encourage you to get this Bible. We must make America pray again,” he said.

Trump argued that Christians are "under siege" and "we must protect content that is pro-God."

The website selling the Bible said it comes in “easy-to-read, large print” that will be “perfect to take to church, a bible study, work, travel, etc.”

Trump has partnered with Greenwood in the past. “God Bless the U.S.A.” has become Trump's signature entrance music during his rallies and played occasionally at the outset of White House events during the Trump administration.

The Bible is the latest in a long series of products Trump has sold both before and after his time in office. Earlier this year, he introduced a line of $400 sneakers.

Compared to other leading Republicans, the former president, who is twice divorced and facing four separate criminal cases, rarely talks about his religious beliefs. Still, Trump regularly claims the support of religious Republicans.
