DONALD TRUMP QUOTES

Donald Trump quote

You're fired.

DONALD TRUMP, The Apprentice

Real estate is at the core of almost every business, and it's certainly at the core of most people's wealth. In order to build your wealth and improve your business smarts, you need to know about real estate.

DONALD TRUMP, Think Like a Billionaire

It's tangible, it's solid, it's beautiful. It's artistic, from my standpoint, and I just love real estate.

DONALD TRUMP, interview, Jan. 9, 2002

I get up, take a shower and wash my hair. Then I read the newspapers and watch the news on television, and slowly the hair dries. It takes about an hour. I don't use the blow dryer. Once it's dry I comb it. Once I have it the way I like it -- even though nobody else likes it -- I spray it and it's good for the day.

DONALD TRUMP, Playboy, Oct. 2004

I don’t do it for the money. I’ve got enough, much more than I’ll ever need. I do it to do it. Deals are my art form.

DONALD TRUMP, Trump: The Art of the Deal

I've known people who had fantastic ideas, but who couldn't get the idea off the ground because they approached everything weakly. They thought that their ideas would somehow take off by themselves, or that just coming up with an idea was enough. Let me tell you something -- it's not enough. It will never be enough. You have to put the idea into action. If you don't have the motivation and the enthusiasm, your great idea will simply sit on top of your desk or inside your head and go nowhere.

DONALD TRUMP, Trump 101

I do what I do out of pure enjoyment. Hopefully, nobody does it better. There's a beauty to making a great deal. It's my canvas. And I like painting it.

DONALD TRUMP, Playboy, Mar. 1990

It’s important to focus on the solution, not the problem.

DONALD TRUMP, Washington Times, Jan. 28, 2012

How to get rich ... whenever I meet people, that's usually what they want to know from me. You ask a banker how he makes bread. You ask a billionaire how he makes money.

DONALD TRUMP, How To Get Rich

If you're thinking already, you might as well think big.

DONALD TRUMP, Think Big

There has always been a display of wealth and always will be, until the depression comes, which it always does. And let me tell you, a display is a good thing. It shows people that you can be successful. It can show you a way of life.

DONALD TRUMP, Playboy, Mar. 1990

Sometimes your best investments are the ones you don't make.

DONALD TRUMP, The Art of the Deal

Many people are afraid to fail, so they don't try. They may dream, talk, and even plan, but they don't take that critical step of putting their money and their effort on the line. To succeed in business, you must take risks. Even if you fail, that's how you learn. There has never been, and will never be, an Olympic skater who didn't fall on the ice.

DONALD TRUMP, Trump 101

When luck is on your side it is not the time to be modest or timid. It is the time to go for the biggest success you can possibly achieve.

DONALD TRUMP, Think Big

People who think achieving success is a linear A-to-Z process, a straight shot to the top, simply aren't in touch with reality. There are very few bona fide overnight success stories. It just doesn't work that way. Success appears to happen overnight because we all see stories in newspapers and on TV about previously unknown people who have suddenly become famous. But consider a sequoia tree that has been growing for several hundred years. Just because a television crew one day decides to do a story about that tree doesn't mean it didn't exist before.

DONALD TRUMP, How to Get Rich

I've seen people that are extremely brilliant and they don't have the staying power. They don’t have that never give up quality. I've always said that other than bad ideas, which is a reason for failure, the ability to never ever quit or give up is something that is very, very important for success as an entrepreneur.

DONALD TRUMP, Forbes, Oct. 3, 2011

Friendship can be really tested only in bad times.

DONALD TRUMP, Playboy, Mar. 1990

If you're not born in the United States, you cannot be president. And, there is a real question. And if this birth certificate exists, you know what I get a kick out of? The Governor of Hawaii says, "I remember when he was born 50 years ago." I doubt it. I think this guy should be investigated. I doubt it. He remembers when Obama was born? Give me a break! He's just trying to do something for his party. The fact is, if you're not born in the United States, you cannot be president. He is having a hard time — he spent millions of dollars trying to get away from this issue, millions of dollars in legal fees trying to get away from this issue. And I'll tell you what, I brought it up just routinely and all of a sudden, a lot of facts are emerging, and I'm starting to wonder myself whether or not he was born in this country.

DONALD TRUMP, Fox & Friends, Mar. 28, 2011

Today I'm very proud of myself, because I've accomplished something that nobody else has been able to accomplish. I was just informed, while on the helicopter, that our president has finally released a birth certificate. I want to look at it, but I hope it's true, so that we can get on to much more important matters, so the press can stop asking me questions. He should have done it a long time ago. Why he didn't do it when the Clintons asked for it, why he didn't do it when everyone else was asking for it, I don't know. But I am really honored, frankly, to have played such a big role in hopefully, hopefully getting rid of this issue. Now, we have to look at it, we have to see, is it real? Is it proper? What's on it? But I hope it checks out beautifully. I am really proud, I am really honored.

DONALD TRUMP, press conference, Apr. 27, 2011

It's very important that people aspire to be successful. The only way you can do it is if you look at somebody who is.

DONALD TRUMP, Playboy, Mar. 1990

Not teaching your kids about money is like not caring whether they eat. If they enter the world without financial knowledge, they will have a much harder go of it.

DONALD TRUMP, How to Get Rich

I could take the greatest deal-makers of all time and they've always had something that didn't quite work out. You never want to put yourself in the position where something not working out is bigger than what you are and therefore takes you down. It's got to be in smaller chunks. In all cases, I want to learn something from things that didn't quite work out and learn, so that it doesn’t happen again or so that in the future, you make great decisions. You don't want to make the same mistake twice and you have to learn that early on in your life.

DONALD TRUMP, Forbes, Oct. 3, 2011

Passion is absolutely necessary to achieve any kind of long-lasting success. I know this from experience. If you don't have passion, everything you do will ultimately fizzle out or, at best, be mediocre. Is that how you want to live your life?

DONALD TRUMP, Trump 101

I am no stranger to working hard. I have done it all my life. As a result I have become accustomed to expecting success in everything I do. Some people call me lucky, but I know better.

DONALD TRUMP, Think Big
