Donald Trump announced something wonderful today. On the Inauguration day he is going to bring with him two extremely important bibles. Donald Trump is a big patriot, conservative and the tradition means lot to him. As president-elect he promised to bring changes and he is going to begin with one. Trump promised to make a great traditional inauguration ceremony that is going to raise the patriotic spirit in the nation and we will return to our roots. What he announced today is even more delightful:
A relic of a president who sought to bring unity to a divided nation and a gift from Donald Trump’s mother will be with the president-elect Friday as he takes the oath of office.
The Presidential Inaugural Committee announced Tuesday that Trump will be sworn in as the nation’s 45th president using two Bibles. One of the Bibles was used by Abraham Lincoln in 1861 when he took the oath of office as the nation was drifting into civil war. The other Bible to be used was presented to Trump as a boy by his mother.

“In his first inaugural address, President Lincoln appealed to the ‘better angels of our nature,’” inauguration committee chair Tom Barrack said in a statement.
“As he takes the same oath of office 156 years later, President-elect Trump is humbled to place his hand on Bibles that hold special meaning both to his family and to our country,” the chairman added.
Trump’s mother, Mary Anne, gave Trump his personal Bible on June 12, 1955, when he graduated from Sunday Church Primary School at First Presbyterian Church in Queens. Trump was two days away form his ninth birthday at the time.
Unity was a strong theme of Lincoln’s address.
“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies,” Lincoln said then. “Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection.”
“The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature,” Lincoln said as he closed his speech.
Remember the words of Lincoln, we have to unite, we have to stick together and no power will be able to beat us. America is going to be great again! America will welcome Trump as a savior and protector. The progress will be seen soon and prosperity awaits for every citizen of our country. God Bless America!
