Trumps sets out to convince the world he believes in God

As republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump has finally convinced everyone that he is not going away any time soon, he has decided to start courting the religious right.

As republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump has finally convinced everyone that he is not going away any time soon, he has decided to start courting the religious right.

At recent gatherings of conservative Christians, Trump- a Catholic- has taken to arriving with a Bible in hand. He also flashes an old, black-and-white photo of his Confirmation to prove he was a bona fide believer.

“See, I’m better than you thought,” said Trump. “Nobody believes this. What went wrong?”

Originally, Trump declined the invitation to speak at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit in Washington. Yet ultimately decided to tag along once he found out that his competitors- Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz- were going to make fiery speeches.

Trump spent most of his Summit speech attacking his rivals- both Democratic and Republican. But he also took the time to reaffirm his religious beliefs.

“I believe in God. I believe in the Bible. I’m a Christian,” said Trump.

He went to promise that, if elected president, he would reverse the trend of saying ‘Happy Holidays’ rather than ‘Merry Christmas’. The row over seasonal greetings has become an annual tradition for Fox News fans.

Trump isn’t all brimstone and hellfire. At a rally in Oklahoma City, the Donald had some kind words to say about the Pope.

“He is a unifier. He wants to bring people together, and I think that’s a great thing,” said Trump said. “That’s what we have to do. We have to bring people together.”

As a caveat, possibly to prevent people from thinking he’d gone soft, Trump mentioned that he disagreed with Pope Francis’ position on global warming.

His efforts so far have not completely wiped voters’ minds of his womanizing, playboy past. This is made worse by his inability to quote any biblical verses as well as his description of the holy sacrament of Communion as “when I drink my little wine, which is about the only wine I drink, and have my little cracker.”

At a speech given on a golf course in South California recently, Trump described his good fortune as the work of God.

“Well I say God is the ultimate. You know you look at this? Here we are on the Pacific Ocean. How did I ever own this? I bought it fifteen years ago.  I made one of the great deals they say ever. I have no more mortgage on it as I will certify and represent to you,” said Trump.

“And I was able to buy this and make a great deal.  That’s what I want to do for the country.  Make great deals.  We have to, we have to bring it back, but God is the ultimate. I mean God created this (points to his golf course and nature surrounding it), and here’s the Pacific Ocean right behind us. So nobody, no thing, no there’s nothing like God.”
