Does not matter if one loves or hates Donald Trump, there is no way to ignore him. He has proved it once again with his rhetoric. His direct challenge to the Fox debate went popular on YouTube. Here are some of the best quotes by Trump at the event.
On Fox Debate
Trump started his address while explaining himself why he became a part of the veterans rally. He said the rally was not his first choice. He wanted to be at the Republican debate on Fox. Even the polls revealed high popularity for the debate, he said. But, he had to stand up for his rights, he added.
“I didn’t want to be here. I have to be honest. I wanted to be about five minutes away. But, when you’re treated badly, you have to stick up for your rights.”
On Academy Awards
Trump compared his rally to the Academy Awards ceremony.
“Look at all the cameras. It’s like the Academy Awards. This is the Academy Awards.”
Trump talked about veterans, and he talked about illegal immigrants in the same context.
“We wouldn’t have even been here if it weren’t for our vets, and our vets are being mistreated. Illegal immigrants are treated better in many cases than our vets.”
On Donald Trump
The real estate tycoon was reading out the names who donated big sums for the cause. While reading other names, he stumbled on his own.
“Donald Trump, another great builder in New York – now a politician. I can’t stand that,” Trump looks disgusted. “A politician? I don’t want to be called a politician. All talk. No action. I refuse to be called a politician. Donald Trump gave one million dollars, OK?”
Trump said the one who is giving him competition on popularity was Berne Sanders. There is no Republican, he said.
“By the way, we get the biggest crowd by far. Much bigger than Bernie although I have to say he is second. He is second. No other Republican.”
The Republican candidate said he was not angry with China. He blamed it on US politicians for not having a great deal with China. He proposed US businessman Phil Ruffin’s name as the one to be dealing with the Chinese.
“They are the smartest people. I love Chinese people. They buy my apartments to millions. I’m not blaming the Chinese. I’m not angry at them. I’m angry at our politicians.”
On Making Money
The 69-year-old said he was self-funding his campaign. According to Forbes, he is worth US$4.5 billion ($6.3 billion).
“All my life, I made money. I’ve always been good making money. My whole life I’ve been greedy, greedy, greedy!”
The Trump rally was streamed live on YouTube.
