Stupid Shit Donald Trump Said Today
If you ever wondered why it would be so bad if he got in sniffing distance of America’s nuclear arsenal… Story By Ailis Brennan. GQ-Magazine. March 8, 2016
It’s becoming increasingly inevitable that the Republican candidate for the 2016 Presidential election will be none other than billionaire property and media mogul Donald Trump. Worryingly, this is a condensed list.
On British muslims:
“When they see trouble [terrorist activity] they have to report it. They are not reporting it. They are absolutely not reporting it and that is a big problem.” 23 March 2016, speaking to Piers Morgan on ITV’s Good Morning Britain
On the UN which he hates. Or loves. Or hates
“The United Nations is not a friend of democracy. It’s not a friend to freedom. It’s not a friend even to the United States of America, where as all know, it has its home. And it surely isn’t a friend to Israel.”
Which followed a speech he made in 2005 as a commercial development expert before a Senate subcommittee. At the time, he was looking into the growing costs of renovations of the UN headquarters in New York.
“I have to start by saying I’m a big fan, a very big fan, of the United Nations and all it stands for… the concept of the United Nations and the fact that the United Nations is in New York is very important to me and very important to the world, as far as I am concerned. So I am a big fan.”
