On US Foreign Policy (krystal.com).

Richard Perle, USA Pentagon advisor:

”I do not believe that the United States should be bound by the same rules as the smallest African nation. Life isn’t like that.”

Madeleine Albright, former USA Secretary of State to the United Nations:

”[The USA will] behave, with others, multilaterally when we can and unilaterally as we must.”

Daniel Patrick Moynihan, USA ambassador to the United Nations writing in his book, A Dangerous Place:

”The [USA] Department of State desired that the United Nations prove utterly ineffective in whatever measures it undertook. This task was given to me and I carried it forward with no inconsiderable success.”

George Bush, USA president during the bombing of Iraq:

”What we say goes.”

Der Spiegel, news magazine from Germany (1 September 1997):

”Never before in modern history has a country dominated the earth so totally as the United States does today… America is now the Schwarzenegger of international politics: showing off muscles, obtrusive, intimidating… The Americans, in the absence of limits put to them by anybody or anything, act as if they own a kind of blank cheque in their ’McWorld'”.

NoControllingLegalAuthority, from a post on a forum about the USA’s role in the United Nations:

”The UN is headed for the dust bin of history. It has no moral authority. It is dominated by cowards, scoundrels and thieves. It’s participants do not even obey the laws of the city of New York. Many of us are ready to help UN personnel pack and to drive them to the airport for a one-way trip out of our country. Today would not be soon enough. Good riddance to the self-serving human debris.”

Reuel Marc, former (USA) CIA covert operator in February 2003:

”The tougher Sharon becomes, the stronger our image will be in the Middle East”.

Donald Trump on US foreign policy (shortlist.com).


On The Greatness Of America

”Our country is in serious trouble. We don’t have victories any more. We used to have victories but [now] we don’t have them. 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. All the time.”

Campaign launch rally, 15/6/15

On Immigration

”We’re rounding ‘em up in a very humane way, in a very nice way. And they’re going to be happy because they want to be legalized. And, by the way, I know it doesn’t sound nice. But not everything is nice.”

60 Minutes, 27/0/15

“Why are we having all these people from shithole countries coming here?”

Twitter, 19/10/15

On Mexico

”They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Campaign launch rally, 15/6/15

On Fighting Terrorism

”When you see the other side chopping off heads, waterboarding doesn’t sound very severe.”

This Week with George Stephanopoulos, 2/8/16

”If you look at Saddam Hussein, he killed terrorists. I’m not saying he was an angel, but this guy killed terrorists.”

The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch, 2006

On Global Warming

”The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive.”

Twitter, 6/10/12

On Making America Great Again

”The line of ‘Make America great again,’ the phrase, that was mine, I came up with it about a year ago, and I kept using it, and everybody’s using it, they are all loving it. I don’t know, I guess I should copyright it, maybe I have copyrighted it.”

MyFox New York, March 2015

(”Let’s Make America Great Again” was one of Ronald Reagan’s most well-known campaign slogans)

On Muslims

”Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on.”


On Judaism

“I’m a negotiator, like you folks.”

Speech to the Republican Jewish Coalition, 3/12/15

On Russia

“Russia will have much greater respect for our country when I am leading it than when other people have led it…If Putin likes Donald Trump, I consider that an asset, not a liability, because we have a horrible relationship with Russia.”

Trump Tower Press Conference, 11/1/17

On Taking Inspiration From Other Leaders

“[Kim Jong-Un] speaks and his people sit up at attention. I want my people to do the same.”

Fox & Friends, 15/6/18

On Diplomacy

“North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un just stated that the “Nuclear Button is on his desk at all times.” Will someone from his depleted and food starved regime please inform him that I too have a Nuclear Button, but it is a much bigger & more powerful one than his, and my Button works!”

Twitter, 2/1/18
