Donald J. Trump is being inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States on Friday.
It will likely be one of the most memorable and most watched inaugurations ever.
Details have been pouring in about how the ceremonies will transpire.
One of those details regarding the Bible that will be used has gotten a lot of attention.
In a Brody File exclusive, we’ve learned that when Donald Trump is sworn in as President of the United States this Friday, he’ll take the oath of office by placing his hand on his childhood Bible that he’s owned for more than 60 years. He’ll also be using the famous Lincoln Bible as well.
The President-elect was first given this Bible when he was eight years old, just two days shy of his ninth birthday. The date was June 12, 1955, the day he graduated Sunday Church Primary School at First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica, New York. His mother, Mary Anne, presented it to him and he’s kept it ever since. The Bible is a Revised Standard Version with his name imprinted on the front cover. The inside cover is signed by church officials with his name inscribed. Trump actually showed this exact Bible to us in one of our nine interviews with him during the course of the campaign season.
Many of us still cherish the first Bible we received as children and it has often been said that Trump’s popularity is partially due to the fact that a lot of American people relate to him.
Inauguration weekend definitely promises to be a good one.
