Donald Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, turns 70 Tuesday. If elected, he'd be the oldest person ever elected to a first term as president.
If the billionaire businessman succeeds in his bid, he would eclipse Ronald Reagan in becoming the oldest human to assume the U.S. presidency. Hillary Clinton, now 68, would be sworn in as a close second.
While his 2016 presidential campaign was his first bid for public office, Trump is hardly new to the public eye. A look back at 70 quotes from interviews, books and tweets that epitomize the man, the brand, the provocateur and the potential president that is Donald J. Trump.
1) "I'm just a f—— businessman." (Fortune, 2004)
2) “The show is ‘Trump.’ And it is sold-out performances everywhere.” (Playboy, 1990)
Robert Kiyosaki: The buzz surrounding Donald Trump’s presidential campaign has boiled over and escalated to the level of outright phenomenon. With unprecedented rapidity, Trump has watched his public perception evolve from novelty to establishment annoyance to undisputed frontrunner.
For months now he’s maintained double-digit leads in each of the major polls. Debates regarding the legitimacy of his candidacy have ceased. Seasoned political “experts” have learned to stop publicly writing him off. The notion that he would eventually flame out or collapse under the weight of his perceived verbal faux pas has dissipated. As the dust settles and the smoke clears, an irrefutable consensus has emerged: Donald Trump is for real.
