Whether in print, his frequent speaking appearances, or his Twitter account, Trump has never been shy about blasting out his beliefs.
Some of his comments on record, would frankly destroy any other candidate, but somehow the outrageous personality he’s developed in the public eye, means that it’s somehow accepted from him. Here’s a few gems from ‘The Donald’
On low oil prices – Back in 2012, Trump said : “We have nobody in Washington that sits back and said, you’re not going to raise that fucking price.” So, according to him, cursing out OPEC is the smart way to go.
On Vaccinations – Trump has been quoted as saying, on the topic of vaccinations in the US “Donald Trump isn’t going to make the pro-vaccination crowd – that is to say, pro-sound science –very happy”. Baffling really….
Trump on Obama’s birth certificate – According to Trump, he sent private investigators to Hawaii, to help expose the fact that he believed president Obama, had not been born in the USA.
“An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a fraud”
On Mummar Gaddafi – “I screwed him. I dealt with Gaddafi, he paid me to rent land from me, and then I didn’t let him use the land”.
On China – “Our country is in serious trouble. We no longer have victories, we used to, but we don’t anymore. When was the last time you saw us beating, say China, in a trade deal? I used to beat China all the time. All of the time”.
On Obama’s religious beliefs – Trump claims that Barack Obama could be Muslim.
“He may have one but there’s something on that, maybe religion, maybe it says he is a Muslim. I don’t know. Maybe he doesn’t want that. Or he may not have one. I will tell you this: if he wasn’t born in this country, it’s one of the great scams of all time”
On Rosie O’Donnell – Since Rosie O’Donnell criticized Trump on air, more than a decade ago, Trump has really had it in for her. He stated “Rosie O’Donnell is disgusting inside and out. Just look at her, she’s a slob, she speaks like a truck driver… She’s basically a disaster.
On Media Scrutiny – A British documentary maker was attacked verbally on twitter, by Trump, for criticizing a land deal in Scotland in which Trump had people evicted from their homes so that he could build a golf course on the land. He said on twitter “Thanks for helping to promote and make Trump international Golf Links Scotland so successful – you stupid fool”.
On Family – In what could be considered perhaps the creepiest quote ever, Trump stated “I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
On Baltimore – In the aftermath of the death of Freddie Gray, during the Baltimore riots, Trump tweeted this hugely racist tweet “Our great African American president hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore”
On relationships – Trump, now apparently a relationship coach, advised actor Robert Pattinson, to dump girlfriend Kristen Stewart “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!”
On Ariana Huffington – “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.”
On Public Relations – “You know, it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young, and beautiful, piece of ass.”
On other candidates – “I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I’m more honest and my women are more beautiful.”
On Motherhood- During a court case, Trump’s opposing lawyer asked to take a break so she could pump breast milk for her 3 month old Daughter – Trump’s words to her were “You’re disgusting”
