Donald Trump begins his political career in birtherism. That idea is connected to a very, very old notion that African-Americans are not citizens.
Donald Trump has got unlimited number of insecurities. But the No. 1 one thing, I would say, is his insecurity with his intellect. There’s a reason why he always refers to where he went to college and, you know, that, ‘I’m a smart person.’ You know, it may be narcissism. But I think it really reflects an insecurity.
Donald Trump can take his message directly to the people via rallies and addresses carried over social media. I’d call them updated versions of Roosevelt‘s fireside chats, but a portion of my younger readership doesn’t even know what a radio is thanks to a Democrat-run education system.
I’m interested in all things that Donald Trump does. I’ve known him since 1980. He’s a good man.

Our message has been muddled, especially in 2016. Voters in Ohio heard from Trump, ‘I’m going to save your coal jobs.’ And while that was a lie, what it told them is, ‘I’m going to feel your pain.’ What they heard from the Democratic side was, ‘Vote for us because Donald Trump is crazy.’
Donald Trump has a curious understanding of what freedom of speech means.
President-elect Donald Trump says he’s looking for a simple plan for defeating ISIS within his first 30 days of taking office. But even as ISIS has suffered setbacks in Iraq and Syria, its violent ideology continues to spread.

Ben Cardin
I believed that the donor class would cringe at the vast threat Donald Trump poses to the entire Republican Party, its brand, its prospects for expansion, and the nation.

I don’t think Donald Trump is a conservative. I think his line on China for example, that he’s going to talk tough to China. China didn’t create Social Security, Medicare. China isn’t spending a fifth of a billion dollars every hour that it doesn’t have.
Mark Steyn
I was a Republican before Donald Trump was a Republican. I was a Republican when Donald Trump was a Democrat. I was a Republican when Donald Trump was an independent. And I’m going to be a Republican when Donald Trump gets tired of being a Republican.

No one ever complained about Facebook for a single day until Donald Trump was president.

If Donald Trump has proved anything, it is that there is nothing more powerful than a candidate’s voice.

I’ve sat down with Donald Trump in an hour-and-a-half-long meeting with several of the representatives; he was very engaging. He listened to our concerns and our thoughts. I find him very parental.

I had a very weird, very vivid dream. Donald Trump and I were in some kind of room. It was an office with pictures on the wall behind us, and we were standing next to each other posing for a picture.

Donald Trump promises to impose, soon after his inauguration, a new requirement on federal agencies: If they want to issue a new regulation, they have to rescind two regulations that are now on the books.

I would argue that electing Donald Trump would be a disaster for minorities; it would be a disaster when it comes to foreign policy.

If you don’t believe this election is important, if you think you can sit it out, take a moment to think about the Supreme Court justices that Donald Trump would nominate and what that would mean to civil liberties, equal rights, and the future of our country.
But I will say this, look, I don’t think that there’s anyone in the country who thinks that impeachment’s going to lead to Donald Trump leaving office. The point is, you need to put down a marker as to who is accountable, what the President can get away with.

Donald Trump understands media. He’s a television star. And he’s connected with America.

Tiger Woods has known Donald Trump… for many years, well before he became the president. He knows the true Donald Trump, not the one that the mainstream media tries to post up all the time.

Donald Trump is an idiot and a moron and just a kook of the first order, but he is surrounded by a bunch of guys like me, who are ride-or-die for him. They don’t love him ideologically, but they’re stuck. And they’re very smart. And they’re very determined and they will do anything to win.
Donald Trump tells us that he is very, very smart. I’m afraid that when it comes to foreign policy, he is very, very not smart.

Donald Trump was in a tuxedo, standing next to his award: a statue of a palm tree, as tall as a toddler. It was 2010, and Trump was being honored by a charity – the Palm Beach Police Foundation – for his ‘selfless support’ of its cause. His support did not include any of his own money.
Donald Trump, like most Americans, like most Republicans, believe in protecting America’s core national interests.
I have a bigger voice than Donald Trump, you know what I’m saying? Than literally anybody that works in politics.

Every racist that I know – and I know a lot of racists – every racist that I know voted for Donald Trump.
Donald Trump wouldn’t work on paper. Obnoxious, crass, boastful, and vulgar, with garish tastes and a Stepford wife – as a fictional character, he’d seem too crudely drawn. Even in a trashy airport thriller, readers wouldn’t buy such a boor as president.
Little things had to go wrong for Donald Trump to become president: Comey, emails, all that stuff. Big things did make Trump possible. Big, cultural, political, economic forces opened the door to someone like Trump.

In America you can be Donald Trump, have a business go wrong, and file for Chapter 11. You can move on, and no one complains. When his casinos were in Chapter 11, he was still on TV telling people how to get rich. I had to persevere for years with easyInternet because I couldn’t afford to hurt the brand.

Donald Trump is already losing badly to Hillary Clinton. He is a weak candidate, and he’s performing that way.
Donald Trump is not a 71-year-old white man. He is an Indian uncle. He wears suits that don’t fit; he can’t speak English properly. He works with his idiotic sons; he hates women but loves his daughter. He makes up words when he gets angry. He is an Indian uncle.
Trump is Trump. Some people find him hilarious. I don’t find it hilarious, but you can’t say it’s dull. There’s nothing credible about Donald Trump.

Donald Trump is the steadfast leader our nation needs.
You know Donald Trump will secure our borders.

I don’t know how humble a person can be while consistently spouting statements like ‘I, Donald Trump, am a totally gifted politician,’ or ‘I’m, like, a smart person.’
However Donald Trump came upon the foreign policy views he espoused, they were as crucial to his election as his views on trade and the border.
What links Donald Trump, Viktor Orban, Andrej Babis, Jaroslaw Kaczynski and Marine Le Pen is one simple character trait: hypocrisy. These politicians aren’t tribunes of the people, they are hucksters. They aren’t bitter enemies of the Western system; they are con artists who seek to profit from it.
You’ll never hear me say a negative thing about Donald Trump.
The point is – that Donald Trump has been making on the campaign trail is that he’s financing his own campaign. That’s very important for him to say now in his mind because he wants people to know that he owes nobody anything other than the American people, or the voters who are picking, choosing his candidacy.
So when people say how horrible it is that Donald Trump is president, well, yeah, but we’ve faced a lot worse than this and our country went on to go from the world of ‘Mad Men‘ to the world it is today, and that’s what’s going to happen now. That’s what’s going to happen in the next 50 years. We’re going to be fine.
