Trump Not Using His Family Bible To Swear In On… His Reason Is EPIC! Emmanuel January 19, 2017 Politics, US NEWS I'm sure liberals have written some bogus spin off story about how Trump won't be using his family bible like many Presidents before him because he's some sort of anti- Christian, as if they think being a Christian is all of a sudden a good thing. But the real reason he isn't using (only) his own family bible at his Inauguration to swear in on, is because he has decided to use someone else's as a symbol of this GREAT NATION. Truly epic. Taking the oath on Lincoln’s Bible in addition to his family’s book is an incredible — and auspicious — start to his administration.
