Donald Trump is officially running for the Republican Presidential Nomination in 2016.
After being introduced by his daughter Ivanka he descended down an escalator flanked by his wife Melania and flashed his trademark double thumbs up. He boastfully announced his candidacy at Trump Tower to much fanfare.
He gave a lengthy candidacy speech that tackled topics such as, China, Mexico, and his track record.
Notable Quotes from his speech:
1. On China
When was the last time anybody saw us beating, let’s say, China in a trade deal? They kill us. I beat China all the time.
2. Trump on Isis
They built a hotel. When I build a hotel, I have to pay interest. They don’t have to pay interest because they took the oil when we left Iraq, I said we should have taken. So now ISIS has the oil.
3. Trump on his track record
We need a leader that wrote The Art of the Deal.
4. Trump on creating jobs
I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created.
5. Trump courting the Mexican vote
When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re sending people that have lots of problems. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists.
Donald Trump will surely make this an entertaining election season.
