[in 2016, apologizing for obscene comments made on a bus in 2005 that were caught on tape] I've never said I'm a perfect person nor pretended to be someone that I'm not.

[on election night, 2016] I've spent my entire life and business looking at the untapped potential in projects and in people all over the world. That is now what I want to do for our country.
[on Twitter 3/4/17] Terrible! Just found out that Obama had my "wires tapped" in Trump Tower just before the victory. Nothing found. This is McCarthyism!
