What book does Trump consider the best book ever? The answer may surprise you…

If you stopped the “average Joe” out on the street, and asked him what book would Donald Trump declare the best book ever you’d place a pretty safe bet on that book being The Art of the Deal.

It turns out that you’d be wrong.

On Tuesday night, Donald Trump held a campaign rally in Council Bluffs, IA.  At that rally he brought his favorite book, one he likes even more than the one he wrote- The Bible. He held the book up to the crowd, and said, “I even brought my Bible — the evangelicals, ok?” Trump said to the crowd. “We love the evangelicals and we’re polling so well. This Bible was given to me by my mother, going to Sunday school. … So, we love the Bible. It’s the best. We love ‘The Art of the Deal,’ but the Bible is far, far superior, yes.”

By Trump campaign standards, it was a quiet rally. Trump largely left his rivals in the GOP race alone, and took his time to attack the likely nominee Hillary Clinton, and just in case there’s an upset, he also took some verbal swipes at Bernie Sanders. “Listen, listen, Madam President — can you imagine?” Trump said. “Believe me, women. If it’s got to be a woman, which I’m all in favor of some day, it shouldn’t be Hillary. It shouldn’t be. It really shouldn’t be.”  He mocked Obama for spending more time on the golf course “than people on the PGA tour,” called Sanders a “communist,”

“I love the people of Iowa. I have the same values they have. I really want to win Iowa – and again, the evangelicals, the Tea Party – we’re doing unbelievably and I think I’m going to win Iowa,” Trump said. “That last couple of weeks, I’m going to be here so much you’re going to be sick of me.”

Traditionally, in the week running up to the Iowa caucus, candidates try to temper expectations. They try to lower the bar on how they’ll do in the primary. That way if they lose, their supporters won’t be too let down. But not our boy Donald Trump. “It’d be very easy for me to say if I got second, I’d be very happy,” Trump said. “I don’t want to say that I want to win Iowa, but I really want to win Iowa.”

Traditionally, the political outsider candidate wins the Iowa caucus.  While Trump is clearly the ultimate outsider, Ted Cruz has been spending a great deal of time in the state making a pitch that he is in fact that outside. The recent shift in poll numbers favoring Ted Cruz has reflected that work. Fox News, CBS News, and the Des Moines Register all have Cruz leading by a few percentage points inside Iowa. However, Trump still dominates the national polls.  No candidate who leads the national polls in the final week of December has failed to capture the Republican nomination.

 

What do you think- will Donald Trump capture the Iowa caucus? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. From the outset of you campaign, Donald Trump, I believed you will be the next President of the United States, and I still do. I have followed your campaign over the past several months and I still beleive in who you are and what you stand for. The bible in your hand, please look at Mark chapter 9, verses 30-31. Looking forward to your inauguration and hope to be there.

  2. My intuition keeps telling me Trump will truly win Iowa! Another reason I feel safe in saying this is because of what I read on twitter. I have become an ardent “Trump” twitter fan and work real hard putting out as many negative tweets about Ted Cruz. They are not really negative, but truthfully show the things Cruz have done are different from the things he says he stands for! I also hit on Rubio and Jeb (who is just a fool). Rubio speaks out of both sides of his mouth as well, but lots of information to back up what he has stood for. I receive lots of responses and thanks from people that read my information. I really think that Iowan’s will think long and hard if they have any doubts but believe they will vote for the candidate that is NOT owned by rich fat cats as their safest choice. We all want nothing less than a LANDSLIDE ELECTION FOR TRUMP!

  3. Yes, the Bible is the best book ever.
    The Bible is the Word of God. The Word is not something, it is somebody, and his name is Jesus Christ.
    So the Bible is Jesus Christ Himself. And as such it is called The Holy Bible.

    In the beginning was the WORD and the WORD was with God
    and the WORD was God.

  4. Usually by the time it gets to us here in Cali the nominee is pretty clear, which really I think is a glitch in the system, never the less I will vote for Trump. I hope the people of Iowa do the same. I am so sick of the political elite trying to tell us who to vote for. It drives me nuts that I get so many e-mails from every one of the candidates (except for Jeb Bush of course because I,m not a moderate) asking me for money. I love the fact that Donald Trump just sends me updates on his campaign never asking me for money. By the way I am not or will never afraid to tell people I will vote for Trump. That’s the new thing in the media that people don’t want to admit their for Trump because they are afraid they will be judged. Just another way the media tries to make Trump look bad.
