Reporter: Did you even read the Bible Mr President?

Trump: No, but I did see all the movies... Charlton Heston was the great American Moses, fantastic car chase in Ben-Hur, well chariots actually, as they didn't have cars when the Bible was written... Moses would have made a great President if he had gotten into politics like myself.

Reporter: America hadn't been discovered during the time of Moses. No one knew it even existed back then.

Trump: Then why was John Wayne speaking with an American accent in that movie, what was it called again?

Reporter: The Greatest Story Ever Told, that was about the life of Jesus. John Wayne spoke like that in all his movies.

Trump: Indeed he did, because he was an American. Who played the part of Moses in that movie?

Reporter: Moses wasn't in that movie, it was set during the life of Jesus.

Trump: Charlton Heston must have been making another movie and couldn't play the part of Moses.

Reporter: Charlton Heston was in that movie, he played John the Baptist in that movie.

Trump: He did? Then why did Moses and John the Baptist and a Roman centurion all speak with American accents in the Bible if America hadn't yet been discovered? Go ahead and explain that!

Reporter: They didn't speak with American accents in the Bible, they only did that in the movies.

Trump: Don't believe everything you read. I should know, they make up things about me everyday and I'm a great American like Moses was!
