Donald Trump Enjoys The Bible Teaching 'An Eye For An Eye'

On Thursday, Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump shared that his favorite Bible teaching is the Old Testament adage, an "eye for an eye."

WHAM 1180 AM host Bob Lonsberry asked the Presbyterian business leader if he had a favorite Bible verse or story that "informed" his thinking or character. Trump said, "Well, I think many. I mean, when we get into the Bible, I think many, so many. And some people, look, an eye for an eye, you can almost say that. That’s not a particularly nice thing."

Trump went on to say, "If you look at what’s happening to our country, I mean, when you see what’s going on with our country, how people are taking advantage of us, and how they scoff at us and laugh at us. And they laugh at our face, and they’re taking our jobs; they’re taking our money; they’re taking the health of our country. And we have to be firm and have to be very strong. And we can learn a lot from the Bible, that I can tell you.”

In the New Testament, Jesus Christ tells his followers to instead turn the other cheek.
