Donald Trump Faith and Religion

Mr. Trump identifies as a Presbyterian. In a 2011 interview with David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network, Mr. Trump states

“I believe in God. I am Christian. I think The Bible is certainly, it is THE book. It is the thing. I was raised and I gave you a picture just now and perhaps you'll use that picture I found it from a long time ago. First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica queens is where I went to church. I'm a protestant, I'm a Presbyterian. And you know I've had a good relationship with the church over the years. I think religion is a wonderful thing. I think my religion is a wonderful religion.”


He also disclosed that he receives a lot of Bibles from the public, and he keeps each copy in a storage area.

While he is unable to attend Church every Sunday, he tries to do so when he can – usually at the Marble Collegiate Church in New York. However, he makes it a point to attend Church every Christmas and Easter.

During a six-day trip to Mexico in February 2016, Pope Francis responded to a question about Mr. Trump’s wall proposal by stating that such ideas go against the tenets of Christianity.

“A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not of building bridges, is not Christian. This is not the gospel.” […] "I say only that this man is not Christian if he has said things like that. We must see if he said things in that way and I will give him the benefit of the doubt."

Mr. Trump responded tersely to the comment, remarking that “For a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. I am proud to be a Christian.” Mr. Trump also added that “No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man's religion or faith.”


Mr. Trump also believes that he is targeted by the IRS due to his strong religious beliefs. In an interview with CNN's Chris Cuomo in February 2016, Mr. Trump notes:

“I'm always audited by the IRS, which I think is very unfair — I don't know, maybe because of religion, maybe because of something else, maybe because I'm doing this, although this is just recently.” […] “Well, maybe because of the fact that I'm a strong Christian, and I feel strongly about it and maybe there's a bias.” […] “But I can tell you one thing: I am audited when I shouldn't be audited. ... I tell my people: Why is it that every single year, I'm audited, whereas other people that are very rich, people are never audited — and they don't even know what I'm talking about when I talk about audits.”
