You want to know the real Donald Trump?

Posted on May 10, 2011


Don’t judge Trump by what other people say about him.

Here are his own words, verbatim from the horse’s … mouth.  Decide for yourself.

  1. “The trick in politics – just like in business – isn’t accomplishing something; it’s *pretending* you’re accomplishing something and making sure you profit from it because Americans, by and large, are lazy idiots and will believe whatever you tell them.”
  2. “You know, it really doesn`t matter what [the media] write as long as you`ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.”
  3. “I’m not running for office. I don’t have to be politically correct. I don’t have to be a nice person. Like I watch some of these weak-kneed politicians, it’s disgusting. I don’t have to be that way. One of the key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace. It’s a media circus freak show. Good people don’t go into government.”
  4. “Just like business, the core function of politics is to make the other guy look bad.”
  5. “On building a $100 million ballroom at the White House: “I will build you … one of the great ballrooms of the world.”
  6. “These are stupid people that say, `Oh didn’t Trump declare bankruptcy? Didn’t he go bankrupt?’ I didn’t go bankrupt.”  (Four companies Trump founded and ran went bankrupt, including a casino.)
  7. On Obama’s birth certificate: “I don’t like to talk about this issue too much.”
  8. On African-Americans: “I have a great relationship with the blacks.”
  9. On Jimmy Carter: “The worst president ever.”
    On George W. Bush: “The worst president ever.”
    On Barack Obama: “The worst president ever.”
  10. On running for president: “Why should people vote for me?  Because I’m ridiculously stinking rich, that’s why.”
