It is fair to say that Donald Trump has hardly held back in the comments that he has made thus far in his desire to become the next President of the United States. It is difficult to think of another presidential candidate that has been as outspoken as Trump. Here are 10 especially bold things Donald Trump has said during his campaign:
1. “I never attacked him on his looks, and believe me, there’s a lot of subject matter there.”
This stunning quote was given in the direction of Rand Paul and was provided at the second GOP debate. The very fact that Trump could even use something such as looks as an attack point comes across like a playground insult — with denial and attack all in the one sentence.
2. “I’m the worst thing that has ever happened to ISIS.”
This quote is troubling, considering that Trump had been previously playing into the hands of ISIS with other comments about Muslims. At that point, he was probably the best thing for them, as his comments could have easily been used for a recruitment drive.
3. “Donald Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States.”
This is another comment that could be used as a recruiting tool for ISIS. The very idea that a law-abiding individual could be barred from entering a country simply because of his or her religion is something from the Dark Ages. Also, there are questions as to how it could be enforced, as not every Muslim walks around with a beard or wearing a veil.
