President Donald Trump made headlines earlier this month after he signed bibles for tornado victims in Alabama.
It turns out that it wasn’t the first time the President honored the strange request. He reportedly signed at least one bible prior to the occasion, and that bible just sold for $325 on eBay.

The bible, originally listed at $525, was put up for auction by GraphWizard collectibles with a certificate of authenticity claiming it was signed by then-candidate Trump at a 2016 campaign rally. The site features other Trump memorabilia, including a book he reportedly signed for his mother which costs upwards of $25,000.
While some are reaping profits for the bible’s sale, Twitter is throwing shade.
Sell 400 and he can get another 130k to pay off a porn star.

It would have gone for $500 were it not for the signature 🤔

Just think what his resignation letter would get.

They weren’t done.
Some thought the listing was indicative of a greed at odds with the teachings the book represents.
Evangelicals making an easy buck! Still $325 for a Trump signature is $325 too expensive!

Blasphemy. St. Peter will not be pleased.

You know, I can’t say with absolute certainty WWJD, but I feel pretty close to 100% sure that ain’t it.

Others thought it was capitalism in action.
This is the beauty of capitalism. What can I say, it works.
