Bible Verse That Influenced Trump Contrary to Teachings from Jesus

During an interview, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was questioned about ‘a favorite Bible verse or Bible story that informed [his] thinking or character through life.’

Trump responded, “Well, I think many. I mean, when we get into the Bible, I think many, so many. And some people, look, an eye for an eye, you can almost say that. That’s not a particularly nice thing. But you know, if you look at what’s happening to our country, I mean, when you see what’s going on with our country, how people are taking advantage of us, and how they scoff at us and laugh at us. And they laugh at our face, and they’re taking our jobs, they’re taking our money, they’re taking the health of our country. And we have to be firm and have to be very strong. And we can learn a lot from the Bible, that I can tell you.”
