The words of Donald Trump
Without a doubt, the current commander-in-chief has had some pretty interesting one-liners. While this might have been funny on reality TV, this has many people turning their heads in shock and disbelief as they listen to what comes out of the mouth of our current president. Some people might not realize exactly how ridiculous some of the things that Donald Trump has said might be. Therefore, it is helpful to take a look at some of the most ridiculous one-liners that Donald Trump has said. Of course, unlike the commander-in-chief, we are going to cite all of our sources.
Donald Trump on the Presidency Itself
“I loved my previous life. I had so many things going. This is more work than in my previous life. I thought it would be easier.”
This Donald Trump Quote was published by Reuters on August 28, 2017. Did Donald Trump really think that the job of the President was going to be easy? How could he possibly think that being President would be a cakewalk? I mean, my god.
Donald Trump on Winning with Grace
“Crooked Hillary Clinton is the worst (and biggest) loser of all time. She just can’t stop, which is so good for the Republican Party. Hillary, get on with your life and give it another try in three years!”
Donald Trump posted this to Twitter on November 18, 2017. Yeah, Donald Trump is the true model of winning with grace. If he has to concede the election to Joe Biden, it will be interesting to see how he handles losing with grace. Perhaps he won’t concede at all! He has certainly hinted as much!
Donald Trump on Immigration
“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries coming here?”
This Donald Trump quote was from a White House meeting on January 1, 2018. Wow. So much for Ellis Island and sending us your poor, tired, and huddled masses, I guess! Maybe they are coming here because they think our country is better?
Donald Trump on Finding Inspiration from Other Leaders
“[When Kim Jong-Un] speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same.”
This Donald Trump quote was stated on Fox and Friends on June 15, 2018. It is nice to see what Donald Trump has such positive role models in his life. Surely, Kim Jong Un will go down as one of the world’s most revered and respected leaders.
Donald Trump On Football Players Kneeling During the Anthem
“At least 24 players kneeling this weekend at NFL stadiums that are now having a very hard time filling up. The American public is fed up with the disrespect the NFL is paying to our Country, our Flag and our National Anthem. Weak and out of control!”
This wonderful quote was from Twitter on November 28. 2017. Like so many others, he is missing the point of the protest. It has nothing to do with the flag. It has everything to do with social justice. We will see how the general public feels about this social justice movement.
Donald Trump on Marines Who Died at Belleau Wood in World War I
“Why should I go to that cemetery? It’s filled with losers.”
Published in the Atlantic on September 3, 2020. From the mouth of someone who repeatedly claims to have done more for the military than any other, he clearly doesn’t grasp the meaning of the ultimate sacrifice. Combined with his treatment of the late John McCain, he clearly has no respect for veterans.
Donald Trump on Black Lives Matter
“… symbol of hate be affixed to New York’s greatest street.”
Published on Twitter in July 1, 2020. With the majority of Americans behind social justice movements, the President is not doing much to bring the coutnry to together. How can we expect to heal if we aren’t united? Maybe the country will unite against him at the polls.
The Future Will Be the Judge
These are just a few of the numerous examples of ridiculous things that have come out of the mouth of Donald Trump. With the election looking, there are sure to be plenty of other ridiculous quotes that people will take note of as the debates approach. With the president scrambling to try to rally his voter base, it remains to be seen if he will be able to turn this around and pull another rabbit out of his hat
