Fred Trump was once arrested at a KKK rally and was sued by the US Justice Department for refusing to rent flats to African-American people.
You can always rely on Trump for providing us with the most ridiculous and outrageous statements that often result in a distinctly unique feeling of combined and immense anger/frustration/disbelief.
Which is obviously very professional behaviour for a someone hoping to be the next US president.
Donald was born on the 14th of June, 1946 in New York, to Fred and Elizabeth Trump.
His father, who ended up being one of New York’s biggest property developers, was American-German.
No wonder then that the audience actually laughed out loud when Trump declared, ‘Nobody has more respect for women than I do.’ In fact, new findings released by Public Policy Polling found that Trump is more unpopular than lice and, er, Canadian rock band Nickleback. How much do you actually know about the man who, having been announced the candidate for the Republican campaign, might end up being the leader of the free world?
Before we give to you the most outrageous Donald Trump quotes ever, here’s a bit more about the man behind the mouth…
After a video from 2005 was released of Trump making obscene comments and bragging about sexually abusing women was released, the Republican hopeful responded by writing the episode off as just ‘locker room banter’.
‘This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago.
Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course – not even close,’ he said.
‘There’s never been anybody in the history of politics that has been so abusive to women.’ Then deciding that insulting Hillary’s husband on national television simply wasn’t enough, Trump went on to also throw some pretty serious accusations at the Democrat presidential candidate too: ‘I’ve said some foolish things but there’s a big difference between the words and actions of other people,’ he went on.
We must reclaim our country’s destiny and reclaim our bold and daring.
I want to tell the world community that while we will always put America’s interest first we will deal fairly with anyone.’ But Trump’s own unique brand of outrageousness was never more in the spotlight than at the US Presidential Debates, which he quickly turned into another mud-slinging opportunity with his political rivals.
