Stephen Colbert mocked Donald Trump's comments about 'heaven.'

Fox and Friends co-host Rachel Campos Duffy asked Trump, “You’ve been faced with so much adversity and persecution for years. What’s your relationship with God like and how do you pray? “

“I do very well with the evangelicals, I love the evangelicals,” Trump said, then unleashed a wild word salad.

“Religion is such a great thing, it keeps you, y’know, there’s something to be good about. You want to be good,” he told the conservative news outlet. “When you have something like that, you want to be good. You want to go to heaven, OK? You want to go to heaven. If you don’t have heaven, you almost say, ‘What’s the reason? Why do I have to be good? Let’s not be good, what difference does it make?'”

Trump continued his answer by attacking those who prosecuted him, calling them "godless."

"When you look at all of this bad stuff going on, they have nothing to look up to. They have no God; they have no anything," Trump told the Fox and Friends hosts. "They kill people, they beat people, they push people into subways. They. So there’s just nothing there."

As OK! previously reported, Trump accused President Joe Biden of persecuting Christians and criticized the treatment of migrants pouring into the country.

"Let’s call these brave Americans what they really are, persecuted. Christians, they’re being persecuted. And let’s call their imprisoned, and imprisonment," he told those at the convention. "They are being imprisoned by Joe Biden and his people, evil people! He’s surrounded by very evil people!"

Trump claimed the Bible is his favorite book.

The alleged imprisoned Christians Trump was referring to were anti-abortion protesters convicted by a Tennessee jury of violating the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances Act.

The ex-president claimed that, if he won re-election, he would "appoint a special task force to rapidly review the cases of every political prisoner who has been unjustly victimized by the Biden regime."
