WEST DES MOINES, Iowa — In a mad scramble for votes, presidential candidates are courting crowds of every Christian denomination in order to woo their members. GOP national front runner Donald Trump has recently turned his attention to Seventh-day Adventists, telling an Adventist crowd at a religious liberty event in West Des Moines, Iowa that Steps to Christ was his third favorite book.

Although he made sure to clarify that the Bible was his favorite book and his own Art of the Deal was his second favorite, Trump told Adventists gathered in the Iowa-Missouri Conference offices that Ellen White’s Steps to Christ was “way up there too… a close third.”

Asked about his favorite passage or quote from Steps to Christ, Trump avoided specifics, choosing instead to say that “all of it was amazing.”

Trump added that Ellen G. White was a “terrific old lady who wrote a hell of a lot of books,” praising the Adventist co-founder for her work ethic. “She would have done great on The Apprentice.”

  1. Donald Dump

    Steps to Christ actually is my favorite book, but I didn’t want to offend the Baptists or the publisher of my Art of the Deal, so I said it was third. My third favorite is actually How to Win Friends and Influence People, which I haven’t read either.

  2. LaDonald Trumpette

    As I said in my speech, Ellen G. White was a terrific old lady who wrote a hell of a lot of books. And they were a lot better than mine, in spite of my honorary doctorate from Jerry Falwell’s Liberty University, which is not worth the paper it’s printed on.

  3. Donna Trump

    Don’t blame me. It’s my speechwriters’ fault. Or at least that sounds like a good excuse. (I don’t actually have a speech written; I just get up there and let out a bunch of hot air.)

    I hope he steps better with that book than he did when he stumbled over Two Corinthians at Liberty University. He clearly hasn’t yet been introduced to the Art of Heavenly War, aka, The Great Controversy. else he might have chosen it.

  5. Richard Mills

    Hey, Donnie-You should be reading stuff from Dave Ramsey, Susan Orman or Jim Cramer. Cramer is best since you both love “mad money” I highly recommend any book by Robert Kiyosaki-“Rich Dad-Poor Dad”. Or is it “Rich Don-Richer Don”!!! Wooooooe iz me!!

    • Donny Trumpy

      Hey Richard, old pal, looking forward to seeing you at my next event in Iowa. (Be sure you don’t act up, or I’ll have security throw you out into the cold without a coat.) The Robert Kiyosaki book is actually my 4th-favorite. The title, “Rich Dad, Poor Dad,” describes my dad before and after he gave me that little one million-dollar loan when I was a kid.

    • Donaldo Trumpo

      If Donald Dump can’t handle questions from Megyn Kelly, how would he be able to handle disputes with Vladimir Pukin’ or the Ayatollah Komanchee? “We learned from a secret back channel that the Ayatollah and Putin both intend to treat Donald Trump unfairly when they meet with him if he becomes president — a nefarious source tells us that Trump has his own secret plan to replace the Cabinet with his Twitter followers to see if he should even go to those meetings.”

  6. The most revealing thing about Trump is his seeing his own book as on the list at all. Seems to me that one’s favorite book would be distinctive of what they themself wrote, altho’ that he read anything of EGW surprises me.
