Donald Trump, real estate billionaire and TV reality star, announced his presidential campaign yesterday at the Trump Tower in New York City. Trump, who is running for the Republican nomination, had one of the most memorable – and quotable – announcements of all-time. Below, we’ve collected the best ones for your amusement.


On foreign affairs and policies: “When was the last time anybody saw us beating China in a trade deal—they’d kill us. I beat China all the time, all the time.” “When do we beat Mexico at the border, they’re laughing at us—at our stupidity—and now they’re beating us economically. They’re not our friend believe me, but they’re killing us economically.”

On immigration: “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best [sic]. They’re sending people who have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs, they’re bringing crimes. They’re rapist.”

On terrorism: “Islamic terrorism is eating up large portions of the middle east. They’ve become rich—I’m in competition with them. They just built a hotel in Syria—can you believe this?”

On Iraq: “Every time we give Iraq equipment a bullet goes off in the air—they leave it.”

On Obamacare: “The Big Lie.” “Amazingly destructive.”

On Obama after his term ends: “He’s gonna be out playing golf, he might even be on one of my courses. I would invite him. I have the best courses in the world.”  “I’d love him to leave early and play [golf]. That would be a good thing.”


A week of entertainment news in your in-box.
We find the news you need to know, so you don't have to.

On Obama: “He wasn’t a cheerleader, he was a negative force.”

On deductibles: “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.”

On “5 billion we spent on a website and to this day it doesn’t work. I have so many websites I have all over the place…I hire people. They do a website. It cost me three dollars.”
