The 20 Best Donald Trump Quotes of All Time

Choosing the best Donald Trump quotes is no easy task, as the Republican presidential front-runner adds to the list almost daily.

Choosing the best Donald Trump quotes is not easy  - he says something outrageous and offensive almost daily. No presidential hopeful should ever talk like this.Trump has been making outrageous and offensive statements for years, but now that he's running for president, they're getting more attention. Many of the worst examples aren't even off-the-cuff remarks in a speech, but comments he makes on Twitter (NYSE: TWTR).

Perhaps most amazingly, the real estate mogul's standing in the polls never seems to take a hit no matter what he says.

In fact, despite a recent dust-up over Trump's apparent mocking of a disabled reporter, his poll numbers went up.

According to a Quinnipiac University poll released yesterday (Wednesday), 27% of GOP voters support Trump, up from 24% in a Quinnipiac poll taken a month ago. Trump's Real Clear Politics average is up four percentage points over the past two weeks.

"It doesn't seem to matter what he says or who he offends, whether the facts are contested or the 'political correctness' is challenged, Donald Trump seems to be wearing Kevlar," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac poll.

The durability of his support only gets more remarkable when you look at these jaw-dropping Donald Trump quotes:
