Donald Trump sent me this message

Dear Georges,

[I wanted to answer your blog personally as you are questioning my candidacy for the Presidency of the United States of America. These are my original words, compiled to convince you of the contrary.]
Women are one of the great acts of all time. The smart ones act very feminine and needy, but inside they are real killers. I had several wives. All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me -- consciously or unconsciously. That's to be expected. I consider that women need to be punished for having an abortion. This Kelly girl is a true bimbo. You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her... wherever. [Rosie O' Donnell] is an extremely unattractive person who doesn't understand the truth. ... I think she's a terrible person. ... She has failed at everything she has done. ... She's a bully and she sucker punches people.

You know, it doesn't really matter what the media write as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ass. I would never buy Ivana any decent jewels or pictures. Why give her negotiable assets? I've said if Ivanka weren't my daughter, perhaps I'd be dating her. [That female lawyer during a court case who asked for a break to pump breast milk for her 3-month-old daughter] is disgusting. Arianna Huffington is unattractive, both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man. He made a good decision. Love him or hate him, Donald Trump is a man who is certain about what he wants and sets out to get it, no holds barred. Women find his power almost as much of a turn-on as his money.

I felt Scottish [when visiting my mother's cottage on the Isle of Lewis]. I know you care about foreign policy]. Ignore career diplomats who insist on nuance: we need to lead. Don't take sides with Israel, so we can lead negotiations.Let me be sort of a neutral guy. I would say this, I would put tremendous pressure on other countries that are over there to use their troops to get rid of ISIS, okay, just so -- we have to get rid of ISIS. I'm the worst thing that's ever happened to ISIS. Sure, I might use nuclear weapons in Europe. I have more foreign policy experience than virtually anyone else in the presidential field. Look at Mexico. Their illegal migrants are rapists. We have to have a wall. We have to have a border. And in that wall we're going to have a big fat door where people can come into the country, but they have to come in legally. Mexico has taken advantage of us in another way as well: gangs, drug traffickers and cartels have freely exploited our open borders and committed vast numbers of crimes inside the United States. They are sending people that have a lot of problems. China is raping us with trade deals.

I succeed. We're going to win on every aspect, everything we do. We're going to have so many victories that some Americans will beg me to stop winning so much. Other than the fact that it has my name on it -- which I'm not thrilled about -- I have nothing to do with [the casinos]. I will absolutely apologize, sometime in the hopefully distant future, if I'm ever wrong.

I have a great relationship with the blacks. I've always had a great relationship with the blacks. Our great African-American president hasn't exactly had a positive impact on the thugs who are so happily and openly destroying Baltimore. I have so many fabulous friends who happen to be gay, but I am a traditionalist. When Asians people walk in the room, they don't say, 'Oh, hello! How's the weather? It's so beautiful outside." They say, 'We want a deal!'" I want a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States. They're not coming to this country if I'm president. I don't know anything about what you're even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists and the Ku-Klux-Clan.

My people are loyal. I could shoot people and I wouldn't lose voters. If I am not the Republican candidate, I think you'd have riots. I'm representing a tremendous many, many millions of people. I run as a Republican. They're the dumbest group of voters in the country. They believe anything on Fox News. I could lie and they'd still eat it up. But I can win without Republican Party support!

Money was never a big motivation for me, except as a way to keep score. The real excitement is playing the game. That is what I want to be as a President: when I get to Washington, I'm going to become part of the establishment so I can make deals with Democrats. I think the only difference between me and the other candidates is that I'm more honest and my women are more beautiful.

[You see? You should really vote for me.] My IQ is one of the highest -- and you know it! Please don't feel so stupid or insecure; it's not your fault.

Yours truly,

Donald
