At a tax reform speech in Washington, Trump spoke about the hurricane in Puerto Rico by saying, “This is an island surrounded by water, big water, ocean water.”
Speaking in an Interview, Trump said, “I think I am actually humble. I think I’m much more humble than you would understand.”
At a campaign rally in 2016, Trump said, “I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters.”

“I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will have Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words.”
This quote became a rallying cry of Trump’s campaign.

The former President described his new book saying, “So it’s a book of pictures, largely, with statements, but a book of pictures.”
Trump nicknamed Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas” after she claimed to have Indian heritage.
He said, “I think Pocahontas, she’s finished, she’s out. She’s gone. No, when it was found that I had more Indian blood in me than she did.”
On New Year’s Eve, when the temperature in New York City fell, Trump tweeted, “It’s really cold outside, they are calling it a major freeze, weeks ahead of normal. Man, we could use a big fat dose of global warming!”

As part of that list, he said, “I love the poorly educated.”
“Take This Little Beautiful Baby, and You Pump”
When asked about vaccines, Donald Trump replied, “I am totally in favor of vaccines. But I want smaller doses over a longer period of time. Same exact amount, but you take this little beautiful baby, and you pump–I mean, it looks just like it’s meant for a horse, not for a child, and we’ve had so many instances, people that work for me. … [in which] a child, a beautiful child went to have the vaccine, and came back and a week later had a tremendous fever, got very, very sick, now is autistic.”
In 2013, Trump took to Twitter to explain his superiority to “the haters,” writing, “Sorry losers and haters, but my I.Q. is one of the highest -and you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault.”
“Barack Obama’s Birth Certificate Is a Fraud”
In his candidacy announcement speech, Trump told a cheering crowd, “Our country is in serious trouble. We don’t have victories anymore. We used to have victories, but we don’t have them.

In a 1999 New York Times OpEd, Trump said, “I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I’m more honest and my women are more beautiful.”
In a tweet, Trump wrote, “An ‘extremely credible source’ has called my office and told me that Barack Obama’s birth certificate is a fraud.”
