Donald Trump to be sworn into office with Two Bibles

With the inauguration it involves being sworn in on the Bible and even includes a prayer service too. Each President elect gets to choose what Bible they want to be sworn in on prior to the January 20th date. George Washington, the first president, started this practice in 1789, where reports show Washington kissed and bowed to the Bible for reverence. When Trump is sworn in he will use the Bible his mother gave him in 1955 and Lincoln Bible. Donald Trump will be sworn in on Friday, January 20, 2017.

Even in a tweet Donald Trump tweeted. “I want to thank evangelical Christians for the warm embrace I’ve received on the campaign trail. I will not let you down! #MakeAmericaGreatAgain”

Trump’s Bible

Donald Trump said in a video.  “My mother gave me this Bible. This very Bible many years ago,” He also added, “In fact, it’s her writing, right here. She wrote the name and my address, and it’s just very special to me.”

Swearing in Quote

When Trump is sworn in this quote is what is sworn by the President Elect before becoming President. “I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

Bible Verses Used

When Trump gets sworn in, he will not have the Bible open to a certain verse area like a lot of past Presidents did. He will have both the Lincoln  Bible and the Bible his mother gave him stacked.

Not to mention, The Vice  President Elect, Pence, will use the Reagan Bible for his swearing into office. Pence will also use the same Bible verse Reagan did too. “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14)

Did you know?

Donald Trump will be the third person sworn in on Lincoln Bible. Did you know our soon to be former President Obama was the other person sworn in on the Lincoln Bible.

Keep in prayers

Keep Donald Trump and Mike Pence in prayers as they lead our country in the way that God needs our country to go. One thing we also must remember that God sets up those in charge of countries and he also takes them down too. God is in control no matter what!
