“I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created.”
“Ariana Huffington is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man–he made a good decision.”
“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. They’re not sending you, they’re sending people that have lots of problems and they’re bringing those problems.

“I’ve now been in 57 states — I think one left to go.”
“The reforms we seek would bring greater competition, choice, savings and inefficiencies to our health care system.”
