HE’S THE BILLIONAIRE businessman who’s going to be president of the United States next month.

His campaign was based on strict controls on immigration and removing ‘Wall Street’ influence from the federal government.

However, he was criticised for a seemingly endless amount of sexist and racist comments.

He faced over 10 allegations of sexual assault during his campaign yet still beat Hillary Clinton to win arguably the most powerful political position on earth.

Here we compile 20 of the most ridiculous things to ever come out of his mouth.

1. “Believe me, she would not be my first choice, that I can tell you”- said after claims of sexual assault were made against him.

2. “That makes me smart“-  responding to Clinton’s claims that he pays no federal income tax.

3. “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make US manufacturing non-competitive” – on global warming.

4. “If I were running ‘The View’, I’d fire Rosie O’Donnell. I mean, I’d look at her right in that fat, ugly face of hers, I’d say ‘Rosie, you’re fired.’” – on comedian, actress and author Rosie O’Donnell.

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

6. “When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending the best. 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” – on Mexican immigrants and a border wall.

7. “Ariana Huffington is unattractive, both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man. He made a good decision” – on the businesswoman.

8.”I am calling for a complete and total shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what the hell is going on” – on immigration.

9. “I will build a great wall — and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I’ll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and I will make Mexico pay for that wall. Mark my words” – on Mexicans and the wall (again).

10. “I love the poorly educated.”

11.”He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured” – on former republican presidential candidate John McCain.

12.”Sorry losers and haters, but my IQ is one of the highest   you all know it! Please don’t feel so stupid or insecure, it’s not your fault.”

13.”Cher is somewhat of a loser. She’s lonely. She’s unhappy. She’s very miserable. And her sound-enhanced and computer-enhanced music doesn’t do it for me.”

14. “You know, it really doesn’t matter what the media write as long as you’ve got a young, and beautiful, piece of ass”- from a 1991 interview with Esquire magazine.

15. ”You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her… wherever – on Fox News debate moderator Megyn Kelly.

16.”I think we would get along very, very well“- on Russian president Vladimir Putin.

17. “Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she’d get 5% of the vote.”

18.“One of my first acts will be to get all of the drug lords, we have some bad, bad people in this country this have to go out. We’ll get them out, secure the bothered and once the border is secured at a later date we’ll make a determination as to the rest. But we have some bad hombres here and we’re going to get them out.”

19.“I was going to hit her (Clinton) with her husband’s women and I decided I shouldn’t do it because her daughter was in the room” – after the first debate.

20.“Nobody has more respect for women than me. Nobody.”
