Words Matter. They do. so here is Things Trump Said Recently Verbatim like this:

" Can you believe" "Are you a citizen of the United States of America?"

"Sir you can't ask that question."

"We have three very unfriendly courts. They fight us all the way. The judges don't like us too much, I guess. But think of that, Herman, think of that question. "Are you a citizen?"
