As more than a million people gather in Washington to witness the 58th presidential inauguration ceremony on Friday, many have gathered outside White House to protest swearing-in ceremony of Donald Trump for his ideologies and his stand on various issues.
Donald Trump had been in hot water several times for his unsavoury comments. On his way to assume the White House, Trump has insulted large swaths of the country, including Muslims, actors, women, Latino and other sections of society. He was caught on tape for allegedly groping a woman and mocking a reporter for her disability in a press conference.
But that is not all, here are 13 quotes from one of the most controversial leaders of our times - Donald Trump.
1. On his competitors
“Happy New Year to all, including to my many enemies and those who have fought me and lost so badly they just don’t know what to do. Love!”
2. On Mexican
"When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're not sending you. They're not sending you. 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."
3. On banning Muslims’ entry in US
"Donald J Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on. According to Pew Research, among others, there is great hatred towards Americans by large segments of the Muslim population."
4. On Ariana Huffington
“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.”
5. On Meryl Streep for her Oscar speech
Meryl Streep, one of the most over-rated actresses in Hollywood, doesn’t know me but attacked last night at the Golden Globes. She is a Hillary flunky who lost big. For the 100th time, I never “mocked” a disabled reporter (would never do that) but simply showed him “groveling” when he totally changed a 16 year old story that he had written in order to make me look bad. Just more very dishonest media!”
6. On Islam
"I think Islam hates us ... There's a tremendous hatred."
7. On Barack Obama
Our great African-American President hasn’t exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore.”
8. On women working in his TV show “The Apprentice”
“All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me – consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected.”
9. On his daughter too
“I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
10. On Chicago shooting in which cousin of NBA player Dwayne Wade died
"Dwyane Wade's cousin was just shot and killed walking her baby in Chicago. Just what I have been saying. African-Americans will VOTE TRUMP!"
11. On his Republican primary opponent Carly Fiorina
"Look at that face. Would anybody vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president? I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not supposed to say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"
12. On Hollywood actor Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart relationship
“Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again – just watch. He can do much better!”
13. On his inauguration ceremony
We are going to have an unbelievable, perhaps record-setting turnout for the inauguration, and there will be plenty of movie and entertainment stars. All the dress shops are sold out in Washington. It’s hard to find a great dress for this inauguration.”
