“I like it. A lot of good things. I don’t want to talk to you now, but lot of good things. A lot of good points,” said Donald Trump, man of principle, when Reason asked for his views on Libertarianism yesterday. When asked to name a single specific thing he likes about the ideology, Trump demurred.

Previously, Trump directed his gimlet eye to the Bible, which he calls his favorite book. In August the Christian Post reported what happened when a reporter asked whether there are any particular verses he prefers:

“I wouldn’t want to get into it. Because to me, that’s very personal,” Trump said Wednesday on Bloomberg’s “With All Due Respect.”

He was asked again if there is any one particular verse that means a lot to him, to which he said: “The Bible means a lot to me, but I don’t want to get into specifics.”

A third time he was asked to cite a verse that he likes, but Trump replied “No, I don’t want to do that.”

When asked whether he prefers the Old Testament or the New Testament, Trump said “probably equal.”

Is Donald Trump a spineless pandering huckster or the future of presidential politics in America? Hmmm. Not sure. Probably equal.
