They are taking our jobs. China is taking our jobs. Japan is taking our jobs. India is taking our jobs. It is not going to happen anymore, folks! Our politicians are stupid. And the Mexican government is much smarter, much sharper, much more cunning. And they send the bad ones over because they don’t want to pay for them. They don’t want to take care of them. Why should they when the stupid leaders of the United States will do it for them? You have to think anyway, so why not think big? In the end, you’re measured not by how much you undertake but by what you finally accomplish. Without passion you don’t have energy, without energy you have nothing. When I am president, I will work to ensure that all of our kids are treated equally and protected equally. Every action I take, I will ask myself, ‘Does this make life better for young Americans in Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, Ferguson, who have as much of a right to live out their dreams as any other child America?’ People love me. And you know what, I have been very successful. Everybody loves me. What separates the winners from the losers is how a person reacts to each new twist of fate. I think the big problem this country has is being politically correct. It’s always good to be underestimated. I’m not angry at China. I’m not angry at Mexico. I’m not angry at India or Vietnam, which is hot as a pistol right now, taking a lot of stuff away from us. I am upset with our leaders for being so stupid. One of the key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace, good people don’t go into government. Do you mind if I sit back a little? Because your breath is very bad. When somebody challenges you, fight back. Be brutal, be tough. I have made the tough decisions, always with an eye toward the bottom line. Perhaps it’s time America was run like a business. I have an attention span that’s as long as it has to be. We will make America strong again. We will make America proud again. We will make America safe again. And we will make America great again. Owning a great golf course gives you great power. I don’t like losers. I judge people based on their capability, honesty, and merit. Sometimes your best investments are the ones you don’t make. I’m not angry at Japan. They send cars over by the million. We give them practically nothing. You talk about a trade unbalance. They’re up here. We’re down like below that stage. It’s trade imbalance. I’m not angry at any of them. I’m angry at our leaders for being grossly incompetent and not knowing. Right?. Experience taught me a few things. One is to listen to your gut, no matter how good something sounds on paper. The second is that you’re generally better off sticking with what you know. And the third is that sometimes your best investments are the ones you don’t make. We need a great president. Obama does not like the issue of where he was born. It’s tangible, it’s solid, it’s beautiful. It’s artistic, from my standpoint, and I just love real estate. You know the funny thing, I don’t get along with rich people. I get along with the middle class and the poor people better than I get along with the rich people. It’s a great thing when you can show that you’ve been successful and that you’ve made a lot of money and that you’ve employed a lot of people. Sometimes you need conflict in order to come up with a solution. Through weakness, oftentimes, you can’t make the right sort of settlement, so I’m aggressive, but I also get things done, and in the end, everybody likes me. I try to learn from the past, but I plan for the future by focusing exclusively on the present. That’s where the fun is. The problems we face now – poverty and violence at home, war and destruction abroad – will last only as long as we continue relying on the same politicians who created them in the first place. Part of being a winner is knowing when enough is enough. Sometimes you have to give up the fight and walk away, and move on to something that’s more productive. India is doing great. Nobody talks about it. We’ve gone from a tremendous power that is respected all over the world to somewhat of a laughing stock and all of a sudden, people are talking about China and India and other places. All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me – consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected. We – we need strength, we need energy, we need quickness and we need brain in this country to turn it around. People assume I’m a boiler ready to explode, but I actually have very low blood pressure, which is shocking to people. Everything in life is luck. Money was never a big motivation for me, except as a way to keep score. The real excitement is playing the game. I own buildings. I’m a builder; I know how to build. Nobody can build like I can build. Nobody. And the builders in New York will tell you that. I build the best product. And my name helps a lot. Somebody made the statement that Donald Trump has built or owns the greatest collection of golf courses, ever, in the history of golf. And I believe that is 100 percent true. The pact we have with Japan is interesting. Because if somebody attacks us, Japan does not have to help. If somebody attacks Japan, we have to help Japan. Hillary Clinton may be the most corrupt person ever to seek the presidency. The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems. Must make America great again. Will bring back jobs from countries like India, China, Japan and Mexico If you’re interested in ‘balancing’ work and pleasure, stop trying to balance them. Instead make your work more pleasurable. I’ve been dealing with politicians all my life. All my life. And I’ve always gotten them to do what I need them to do. America will no longer settle for anything less than the best. We must reclaim our country’s destiny and reclaim our bold and daring. I want to tell the world community that while we will always put America’s interest first we will deal fairly with anyone.’ An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a fraud. Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again – just watch. He can do much better! Ariana Huffington is unattractive, both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man – he made a good decision. You know, it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young, and beautiful, piece of ass. 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. When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bring crime. They’re rapists… And some, I assume, are good people. The beauty of me is that I’m very rich. If elected, would get Pakistan to free Shakil Afridi in two minutes. I would tell them let (him) out and I’m sure they would let (him) out. Because we give a lot of aid to Pakistan. It’s freezing and snowing in New York – we need global warming! I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her. My fingers are long and beautiful, as, it has been well documented, are various parts of my body. I have never seen a thin person drinking Diet Coke. I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I’m more honest and my women are more beautiful. The point is, you can never be too greedy. My Twitter has become so powerful that I can actually make my enemies tell the truth. My IQ is one of the highest — and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure; it’s not your fault. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist. Number one, I have great respect for women. I was the one that really broke the glass ceiling on behalf of women, more than anybody in the construction industry. You can’t allow policies that allows business to be ripped out of the United States like candy from a baby. The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive. The U.S. will invite El Chapo, the Mexican drug lord who just escaped prison, to become a U.S. citizen because our leaders can’t say no. My whole life is about winning. I don’t lose often. I almost never lose. Sometimes by losing a battle you find a new way to win the war.
