The first page is a blank presentation page, followed by the title page which bears a 3 x 5 in. Trump signature across nearly the entire page. Fine condition. During protests on the evening of Monday, June 1, 2020, President Donald Trump walked the short distance from the White House to St John's Episcopal Church, where he stood outside while holding a Bible.
