Donald Trump, investor and businessman. Quoted in Pursuit magazine in an adaptation from the took What Jesus Would Say
, by Lee Strobel, 1994, Zondervan
Early in 1989, when Trump's bank account was still bulging, a writer asked Trump the inevitable question about what horizons were left to conquer. "Right now, I'm genuinely enjoying myself," Trump replied. "I work and I don't worry." "What about death?" the writer asked. "Don't you worry about dying?" Trump dealt his stock answer, one that appears in a lot of his interviews. "No," he said. "I'm fatalistic and I protect myself as well as anybody can. I prepare for things." This time, however, as Trump started walking up the stairs to have dinner with his family, he hesitated for a moment. "No," he said finally, "I don't believe in reincarnation, heaven or hell&md;but we go someplace." Again a pause. "Do you know," he added, "I cannot, for the life of me, figure out where."
