The 10 most amazing quotes from Trump’s presidential campaign announcement
NEW YORK, NY — Donald J. Trump announced Tuesday that he is now a candidate for President of the United States, and the whole thing was the most “Donald” spectacle imaginable.
After his daughter Ivanka introduced him, there was a bizarre 30-second period in which The Donald was nowhere to be found. Then the camera swung up to reveal Trump standing on a balcony overlooking the crowd.
Then this happened…
But none of that could come close to comparing to the actual content of Mr. Trump’s speech. According to reporters who had received an embargoed copy of his prepared remarks, he basically tossed them aside and winged it. Thank goodness he did.
Here are the ten most amazing quotes from Donald Trump’s presidential campaign announcement.
Trump on Mexican immigrants:
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.”
Trump on border security:
“I will build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me —and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”
Trump on Obama’s negotiating skills:
“Our President doesn’t have a clue, he’s a bad negotiator. He’s the one who did Berghdal. We get Berghdal, they get five killer terrorists that everybody wanted over there. We get Berghdal, we get a traitor.”
Trump on lobbyists:
“I have lobbyists that can produce anything for me. They’re great.”
Trump on ObamaCare:
“You have to get hit by a tractor, literally a tractor, to use it, because the deductibles are so high it’s virtually useless. It is a disaster.”
Trump On HealthCare.gov:
“We have a 5 billion dollar website. I have so many websites … I hire people. They do a website. It costs me three dollars.”
Trump on his rivals’ campaign announcement rallies:
“Some of the candidates, they went in, they didn’t know the air conditioner didn’t work. They sweated like dogs. They didn’t know the room was too big because they didn’t have anybody there. How are they going to beat ISIS?”
Trump on Jeb Bush:
“He’s weak on immigration. He’s in favor of Common Core. How the hell can you vote for this guy?”
Trump on money in politics:
“I don’t need anybody’s money. I’ll use my own money. I’m really rich.”
Trump on himself:
“I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created.”
I would say somebody needs to put together a highlight reel of this @realDonaldTrump announcement, but what would you cut?!
