My Addendum to "The Beautiful Poetry of Donald Trump"

Yes, he said the following words in interviews, texts, and speeches... I just turned his incoherent and discursive diction and usage, his defective grammar and syntax, and his malignant narcissism into poetic form.

"I’m One of the Smartest People in the World" by Donald J. Trump

"Look, having nuclear —
my uncle was a great professor
and scientist and engineer,
Dr. John Trump at MIT;
good genes, very good genes,
okay, very smart, the Wharton School of Finance,
very good, very smart —
you know, if you’re a conservative Republican,  
if I were a liberal, if, like, okay,
if I ran as a liberal Democrat,
they would say I'm one of the smartest people
anywhere in the world —
it’s true! — but when you’re a conservative Republican
they try — oh, do they do a number —
that’s why I always start off: 
Went to Wharton, was a good student,
went there, went there, did this, built a fortune 
you know I have to give my like credentials
all the time, because we’re a little disadvantaged —
but you look at the nuclear deal,
the thing that really bothers me —
it would have been so easy,
and it’s not as important as these lives are
nuclear is powerful; my uncle explained that to me
many, many years ago,
the power and that was 35 years ago;
he would explain the power
of what's going to happen
and he was right —
who would have thought?
but when you look at what's going on
with the four prisoners —
now it used to be three, now it’s four —
but when it was three and even now,
I would have said it's all in the messenger;
fellas, and it is fellas because, you know,
they don't, they haven’t figured that the women
are smarter right now than the men,
so, you know, it’s gonna take them
about another 150 years —
but the Persians are great negotiators,
the Iranians are great negotiators,
so, and they, they just killed, they just killed us."

"I Never Understood the Wind" by Donald J. Trump

"I never understood wind.

You know, I know
windmills very much.
I have studied it
better than anybody
else. It’s very expensive.
They are made in China
and Germany mostly.
—Very few made here, almost none,
but they are manufactured, tremendous
—if you are into this—
tremendous fumes. Gases are
spewing into the atmosphere. You know
we have a world

So the world

is tiny
compared to the universe.
So tremendous, tremendous
amount of fumes and everything.
You talk about
the carbon footprint
— fumes are spewing into the air.
Right? Spewing.
Whether it’s in China,
Germany, it’s going into the air.
It’s our air
their air
everything — right?

A windmill will kill many bald eagles.

After a certain number
they make you turn the windmill off.
That is true.
—By the way
they make you turn it off.
And yet, if you killed one
they put you in jail.
That is OK.

You want to see a bird graveyard?

You just go.
Take a look.
A bird graveyard.
Go under a windmill someday,
you’ll see
more birds
than you’ve ever seen
in your life."

"You Are the Racist, Not I" by Donald J. Trump

"I’ve always had a great relationship
with the blacks
I remained strong for Tiger Woods
during his difficult period
Oprah, I love Oprah.
Oprah would always be my first choice
Kanye West – I love him
I think Eminem is fantastic,
and most people think I wouldn’t like Eminem
And did you know my name
is in more black songs
than any other name in hip-hop?
You are the racist, not I

"Honest Abe Was Tough to Beat" by Donald J. Trump

"They talk about me,
and I didn’t do anything.
I don’t know if I’m the most innocent person
in the world. But you know,
you look at that—most presidential.
I just said I’m the most presidential,
except for possibly Abe Lincoln
when he wore the hat—that was tough to beat.
Honest Abe, when he wore that hat,
that was tough to beat.
But I can’t do that.
That hat wouldn’t work for me.
Yeah, I have better hair than him.
But honest Abe was tough to beat.
Remember we used to do that
during the campaign.
They used to say, when I speak,
the crowd would go crazy.
I’d go crazy—we would all go crazy.
We had a lot of fun together.
We had 25,000.
We’ve never had an empty seat
from that day I came down the escalator
with a potential, unbelievable woman 
who became a first lady."

Hair Spray by Donald J. Trump

"My hair look okay? 
I got a little spray. 
Give me a little spray. 
You know,
you’re not allowed 
to use hair spray anymore 
because it affects the ozone. 
You know that, right? 
I said, ‘You mean to tell me’ 
because you know hair spray’s 
not like it used to be. 
It used to be real good. 
When I put on that helmet, 
and by the way, look, 
it really is mine! 
Look at it! My hair! 
Give me a mirror!
In the old days, 
ya put the hair spray on, 
and it was good. Today, 
ya put the hair spray on 
and it’s good for 12 minutes, 
right? But you know, 
they say you can’t — 
I said, ‘Wait a minute. 
So, if I take hair spray 
and I spray it 
in my apartment, 
which is all sealed, 
you’re telling me 
that affects the ozone layer?'"

"I have broken more Elton John records" by Donald J. Trump

"I have broken more Elton John records.

He seems to have a lot of records.
And I, by the way,
I don't have a musical instrument.
I don't have a guitar 
or an organ. No organ.
Elton has an organ,
and lots of other people helping.
No, we've broken a lot of records.
We've broken virtually every record.
Because you know, look!
I only need this space.
They need much more room.
For basketball, for hockey,
and all of the sports.
They need a lot of room.
We don't need it.
We have people in that space.
So, we break all of these records.
Really, we do it without like,
the musical instruments.
This is the only musical: the mouth.
And hopefully the brain
attached to the mouth. Right?
The brain, more important
than the mouth, is the brain.
The brain is much more important."

Homelessness by Donald J. Trump

“It’s a phenomena
that started two years ago.
It’s disgraceful.
I’m going to maybe,
and I’m looking at it
very seriously.
We’re doing some other things
that you probably noticed
like some of the very important things
that we’re doing now.
But we’re looking at it
very seriously
because you can’t do that.
It’s inappropriate.
Now, we have to take the people
and do something.
We have to do something.”

"I Think She'll Be Voting for Me Now" by Donald J. Trump

"So a woman last night

I watched her on one of her shows.
Good show. Laura, and thought she was dead.
She was just in horrible shape for 12 days.
Fourteen days. She thought she was dead.
I think she said that her doctor said
it's going to be very tough.
She saw me talking about this hydroxychloroquine,
and she asked her husband to go to the drugstore.
Now, this is a Democrat representative,
a person that perhaps wouldn't be voting for me.
I think she'll be voting for me. 
I think she'll be voting for me now,
even if she's a Democrat,
even if she's a Democrat representative.
And they went to the store,
which I made available because 
we have millions of doses."

"It's a Beautiful Thing to See" by Donald J. Trump

"They are warriors aren't they?

When you see them going into those hospitals,
and they're putting the stuff that you deliver,
but they're wrapping themselves,
and the doors are opening,
and they're going through the doors,
and they're not even ready
to go through those doors;
they probably shouldn't,
but they can't get there fast enough,
and they're running into death
just like soldiers run into bullets in a true sense.
I see that with the doctors and the nurses
and so many of the people that go into those hospitals.
It's incredible to see. It's a beautiful thing to see."

"I've Never Seen Anything Like It" by Donald J. Trump

"Kung flu, yeah. Kung flu, 

Covid, Covid-19, Covid.
I said what's the 19?
Some people can't explain
what the 19.
Give me the Covid-19.
I said, that's an odd name.
I could give you
many, many names.
Some people call it the Chinese flu,
the China flu, 
They call it the China
as oppose to Chi,
the China.
I've never seen anything like it."

"Putting Out the Fires" by Donald J. Trump

"Some were doing very well

and we thought they may be gone,
and they flare up.
And we're putting out the fires,
but other places were long before us
and they're now it's got a life,
and we're putting out that life
because that's a bad life
that we're talking about."

"Flames, Embers & the Mexican Wall" by Donald J. Trump

"No, No! But I don't say

I say flames
we'll put out the flames,
and we'll put out in some cases
just burning embers.
We also have burning embers.
We have embers and we do have flames.
Florida became more flame like
but it's, it's going to be under control.
And you know, 
it's not just this country,
it's many countries.
We don't talk about it
in the news. They don't talk
about Mexico and Brazil
and still parts of Europe
which actually got hit sooner
than us, so it's a little ahead of us
in that sense. But you take a look
why don't they talk about Mexico?
Which is not helping us.
And all I can say is thank God
I built most of the wall
because if I didn't have the wall up,
we would have a much bigger problem
with Mexico."

“Person, Woman, Man, Camera, TV” by Donald J. Trump

"It's like, you'll go,
'Person, woman, man, camera, TV.'
So, they'd say,
'Could you repeat that?'
So, I said, yeah —
‘Person, woman, man, camera, TV.’
They say, 'Nobody gets it in order,'
It's actually not that easy, but for me
it was easy.
And that's not an easy question.
They say, 'That's amazing,'
‘How did you do that?'
I do it because I have, like,
a good memory.
Because I'm cognitively there."

“Hurt the Bible. Hurt God” by Donald J. Trump

“If he ever got this shot
And you will
have a disruption
in the market
the likes of which our country
has never seen
You will have a crash
in the markets
because he’s going double
and triple your taxes
He’s going to do things
that nobody ever would ever think
even possible
Because he’s following
the radical left
Take away your gun
Destroy your second amendment
No religion
No anything
Hurt the Bible
Hurt God
He’s against God
He’s against guns
He’s against energy
Our kind of energy.

“Is anybody going to be watching television
on Thursday evening?” by Donald J. Trump

“Yesterday night,
we did it last evening,
we announced a very, very big therapeutic,
and the therapeutic it’s something
that really has been an incredible thing
This would have taken, I wouldn’t say years,
maybe not many years,
but it would have taken a long time
to have gotten it approved
We got the FDA to do it very quickly
So now we have another therapeutic,
and it’s really been effective
So I just want to think convalescent plasma,
but you know that, convalescent plasma,
and hopefully you won’t need it
But we have it, and Remdesivir,
and so many others
So many others are coming out now
The job they’ve done,
the job our country has done,
has been amazing
We’ll be talking about it
on Thursday evening
Is anybody going to be watching
television on Thursday evening?

“But We Passed the Biggest Tax Cuts” by Donald J. Trump

“The next president.
This is so important.
This is so.
Whether you’re talking about life.
Whether you’re talking about second amendment.
Whether you’re talking about military.
This is so important.
We have to do this.
We have to win this election.
But we brought back manufacturing.
We rebuilt our military.
We wiped out ISIS.
I mean, think of it.
When I came, ISIS was all over Iraq.
The Prime Minister of Iraq was in last week and he said,
‘I want to thank you for defeating ISIS.’
I said, ‘Now, are you talking about me
or the United States?’
‘You, because when you came into office,
it was a mess.
They were all over Iraq and Syria,
and you defeated them, sir.’
I said, ‘Good.
Tell that to the media, please.
Would you do that?’
And he said, ‘I will.’
So, let’s say he does.
But we passed the biggest tax cuts
and regulations cuts
in the history of our country.

I'm the President of the United States” by Donald J. Trump

"I never did this before,
never slept over in Washington.
I was in Washington maybe 17 times
and all of a sudden
I'm the President of the United States,
you know the story,
riding down Pennsylvania Avenue
with our first lady
and I say this is great
but I didn't know very many people
in Washington, it wasn't my thing.
I was from Manhattan, from New York,
 and now I know everybody.
And I have great people
in the administration.”

"At the end of our first term” by Donald J. Trump

"At the end of our first term,
it's going to be great,
it would have been phenomenal.
We got hit with the plague.
At the end of the second term,
it's going to be at a level
that nobody will have ever seen a country.
We're doing it, whether it's trade,
whether it's military –
all made in the USA,
so important.
Made in the USA.
We've got to bring back
our manufacturing
and I brought it back very big,
but we have to make
our own pharmaceutical products,
our own drugs, prescription drugs."

"My Second Term" by Donald J. Trump

"But so I think
I think it would be
I think it would be very, very
I think we'd have a very, very
solid, we would continue
what we're doing
we'd solidify what we've done
and we have other things
on our plate
that we want to get done.”   

"Just Like a Golf Tournament" by Donald J. Trump

"Shooting the guy,
shooting the guy in the back
many times, I mean, 
couldn't you have done something different?
Couldn't you have wrestled him?
I mean, in the meantime,
he might've been going for a weapon
and there's a whole big thing there
but they choke, 
just like in a golf tournament
they miss a three-foot putt."

Talkin' to Bob by Donald J. Trump

"This is deadly stuff.
Pretty amazing, more deadly than the flu. 
Going to disappear and all work out fine.
Very much under control.
A problem that's going to go away
within a couple of days
is going to be down to close to zero.
I wanted to always play it down.
I still like playing it down
because I don't want to create a panic. 
We pretty much shut it down
coming in from China.
The virus has nothing to do with me,
It's not my fault.
It's — China let the damn virus out.
We've got a little bit of an interesting setback
with the virus going in China.
It goes through the air.
That's always tougher than the touch.
You don't have to touch things. Right?
But the air, you just breathe the air
and that's how it's passed.
And so that's a very tricky one.
That's a very delicate one.
It's more deadly 
than even your strenuous flus. 
Just today and yesterday,
some startling facts came out.
It's not just old, older.
Young people too, plenty of young people.
I said it's going away
and it is going away.
It's a horrible thing. It's unbelievable.
It's so easily transmissible.
You wouldn't even believe it."

ME and That China Virus by Donald J. Trump

"It's been a very
interesting journey.

I learned a lot
about Covid.

I learned it
by really going to school.

This is the real school!
This isn't 'The let's read the book school.'

And I get it.
And I understand it.

A very interesting thing
and I'm going

to be letting you
know about it."

My Protective Glow Is Fantastically by Donald J. Trump

"I passed the highest test!
The highest standards!
And I'm in great shape!
And I have to tell you,
I feel fantastically!
I really feel good
by the fact that,
you know,
the word immunity
means something
having really a protective glow
means something.
I think it's very important
to have that,
to have that
is a very important thing."

January 6, 2021 by Donald J. Trump
“All of us here today
do not want to see
our election victory stolen
by emboldened radical
left Democrats,
which is what they’re doing
and stolen by the fake news media.
That’s what they’ve done,
and what they’re doing.
We will never give up.
We will never concede.
You don’t concede
when there’s theft involved...

We’re going to have to fight much harder,
and Mike Pence is going 
to have to come through for us...
We’re going to walk down to the Capitol,
and I'll be there with you...
You'll never take back our country
with weakness. You have to show strength,
and you have to be strong...
I know your pain. I know you’re hurt.
We had an election that was stolen from us.
It was a landslide election,
and everyone knows it,
especially the other side...
It’s a very tough period of time.
There’s never been a time like this
where such a thing happened,
where they could take it away from all of us,
from me, from you, from our country.
This was a fraudulent election.
But we can’t play into the hands of these people...
We love you. You’re very special.
You’ve seen what happens.
You see the way others are treated
that are so bad and so evil.
I know how you feel...
These are the things and events
that happen when a sacred landslide election victory
is so unceremoniously & viciously stripped away
from great patriots who have been
badly & unfairly treated for so long...
Remember this day forever!”


  1. Get a signed copy of The Beautiful Poetry of Donald J. Trump when you sign up for membership a Mar-a-Lago for only $200,000.

  2. A bargain at any price. Truly priceless.

  3. Like Rob Sears, I also created poems from Trump's interviews and tweets. Most of these brain-dead ramblings above were assembled on this post by me; however, the cover art is from Rob Sears' real book: "Rob Sears began combing Trump's words for signs of poetry. What he found was a revelation. By simply taking the 45th President of the United States' tweets and transcripts, cutting them up and reordering them, Sears unearthed a trove of beautiful verse that was just waiting to be discovered."
