Donald Trump has found a new way to separate himself from the crowd of would-be Republican presidential candidates. During a Las Vegas stump speech last night, Trump fired off several hearty f-bombs to a group of adoring fans.
From reports of the speech in local press, the message wasn’t much different from the populism-heavy address he gave at a Florida tea party rally Apr. 16, a speech seen as the first “serious” address of his maybe-candidacy. There was one slight addition to all the populist talk however.
Here’s the partial transcript, as posted (and edited) by KTNV-TV:
Once while discussing Iraq.
“We build a school, we build a road, they blow up the school, we build another school, we build another road they blow them up, we build again, in the meantime we can’t get a f***ing school in Brooklyn,” Trump says.
To the audiences approval, while talking oil.
“We have nobody in Washington that sits back and said, you’re not going to raise that f****ing price,” he says.
And finally, while speaking about taxing Chinese goods.
“Listen you mother f***ers we’re going to tax you 25 percent,” Trump says.
Here’s Trump dropping that line on China, from an uncensored video recorded in the crowd. Setup and eventual f-bomb drops about 5 min in:
