US President-elect Donald Trump will use the Bible from President Abraham Lincoln’s inauguration as well as his own bible when he takes the presidential oath of office on January 20, Trump’s transition team said in a press release on Tuesday.

WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The release noted Trump’s Bible was given to him by his mother when he graduated from Sunday Church Primary School at First Presbyterian Church in Jamaica, New York in 1955.

“President-elect Donald J. Trump will be sworn-in on January 20, 2017 using his Bible, as well as the same Bible that President Lincoln used at his first inauguration,” the release stated.

President Barack Obama used the Lincoln Bible at both of his inauguration ceremonies in 2009 and 2013. He was the first President to use the Bible since Lincoln, the release added.
