What certain people said about Donald Trump but wish they hadn’t

“I would almost certainly vote for Trump if I was American.”

—Jacob Rees-Mogg, 11 September 2016

“I am increasingly admiring of Donald Trump. I have become more and more convinced that there is method in his madness.”

—Boris Johnson, 7 June 2018

“Intelligence takes many forms.”

Michael Gove , 15 January 2017

“His demeanour is warm and genial.”

—Michael Gove, 15 January 2017

“It was a great honour to spend time with Trump. He was relaxed and full of good ideas. I’m confident he will be a good president.”

—Nigel Farage, 12 November 2016

“I predict there will be a reappraisal of Donald Trump’s presidency. While his New York outspokenness never went down well with the British electorate, these negative views may well have to be revised.”

—Nigel Farage, Daily Telegraph, 11 November 2020

“If Trump can fix North Korea and the Iran nuclear deal then I don’t see why he’s any less of a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize than Barack Obama.”

“Donald Trump is the single most resilient person I’ve ever met in my life.”

—Nigel Farage, 29 October 2020

Donald Trump in his own words

“ I wouldn’t say I’m a feminist.”

—We say: No kidding!

“You know, I just start kissing them. I don’t even wait…when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything…Grab them by the pussy…”

—We say: Yeah, we get it. You’re not a feminist.

“My fingers are long and beautiful, as are various other parts of my body.”

—We say: We would have impeached you just for saying that.

“I will build a great wall – and nobody builds walls better than me.”

—We say: The biggest wall you built was between different groups of society.

“My IQ is one of the highest – and you all know it!”

—We say: Maybe we’re stupid but, er, no we didn’t know that.

“I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”

—We say: Donald Trump you’re a creep. Case closed.
