Trumpisms: The Donald’s Most Memorable Campaign Trail Quotes

Donald Trump has proved to be the walking quote machine of the 2016 election

It seems like every time he opens his mouth lately, Donald Trump makes headlines for saying something offensive, bizarre, inaccurate or all of the above.

Trump has been a tabloid staple for decades, of course.

But since announcing his presidential campaign in June, he’s taken his media dominance to a new level, becoming the walking quote machine of the 2016 race.

Some themes have emerged.

His hair.
“I don’t wear a toupee. It’s my hair. I swear!”

“It’s mine. It’s mine. It’s not bad, right? I actually have a hairline, see?”

(In both instances, he gamely allowed a woman to touch his mane to verify its authenticity.)

His wealth.
“I don’t need anybody’s money. I’m using my own money. I’m not using the lobbyists, I’m not using donors. I don’t care. I’m really rich.”

That damn Mexican border wall.
“We have to start by building a wall. A big, beautiful, powerful wall.”

“Nobody builds walls better than me, believe me. And I’ll build them very inexpensively.”

“It can have a gate, it can have a door. We’ll let people in legally.”

“Negotiating with China – they say, ‘We want deal.'”

“I like China….I just sold an apartment for $15 million to somebody from China! Am I supposed to dislike them?”

Trump’s said at least one thing over the past several months that’s hard to argue with: “Sadly, the American dream is dead,” he noted during his campaign announcement speech at Trump Tower.

What to do about it, though? That’s a whole other question.
