Ad Feedback

NEW YORK, N.Y. -- Donald Trump has been making headlines with rumblings he may run for president.

While some Christians might not see the bombastic billionaire as their kind of candidate, he actually shares some of their views on social issues.

CBN News went to New York City to interview Trump at his offices at Trump Tower. The business mogul explained how he went from being pro-choice about 10 to 12 years ago to now being pro-life.

"One thing about me, I'm a very honorable guy. I'm pro-life, but I changed my view a number of years ago," Trump said. "One of the reasons I changed -- one of the primary reasons -- a friend of mine's wife was pregnant, in this case married. She was pregnant and he didn't really want the baby. And he was telling me the story."

"He was crying as he was telling me the story. He ends up having the baby and the baby is the apple of his eye," he explained. "It's the greatest thing that's ever happened to him."

"And you know here's a baby that wasn't going to be let into life," he added. "And I heard this, and some other stories, and I am pro-life."

During the half-hour interview, Trump talked about a myriad of other issues, including his message to evangelicals and the fact that people actually send him Bibles.

More of CBN News exclusive interview with Donald Trump will be featured next week on The 700 Club. Check local listings.
