WATCH Top 10 Actual Things Donald Trump Said At His 2016 Presidential Campaign Announcement

On Tuesday, real estate mogul-turned reality show star, Donald Trump, became the latest Republican to jump into the 2016 presidential race.

If he’s elected in 2016, the GOP hopeful predicated that he would be the most successful president for U.S. jobs that “God ever created,” used the recent sale of a multi-million dollar apartment he owned to someone from China as an example of his friendly ties with the country, voiced concern that people from the Middle East are “probably” sneaking into the country through the border, and revealed that rich Islamic terrorists are his competition within the hotel market in Syria.

This is all real, and it’s trademark Trump. Here are the quotes from Trump’s presidential announcement that you will never hear another presidential candidate say -- ever.

ON JOBS

"I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created, I tell you that."

ON OBAMA GOLFING

"Obama is going to be out playing golf. He might even be on one of my courses. I would invite him … I have the best courses in the world, so I'd say, you know what — if he wants to [play], I have one right next to the White House. Right on the Potomac. If he'd like to play, that's fine. In fact, I'd love him to leave [the presidency] early and play. That would be a very good thing.”

ON CHINA

"Hey, I'm not saying they're stupid … I like China. I just sold an apartment for $15 million dollars to somebody from China. Am I supposed to dislike 'em?”

ON BOWE BERGDAHL

"Our president doesn't have a clue, he's a bad negotiator. He's the one that did [Army Sgt. Bowe] Bergdahl … We get a no-good traitor and they get the five people that they wanted for years and those people are now back on the battlefield trying to kill us."

ON THE U.S. BORDER

"I speak to border guards and they tell us what we're getting and it only makes common sense, it only makes sense. They're sending us not the right people; it's coming from more than Mexico. It's coming from all over South and Latin America, and it's coming probably, probably from the Middle East. But we don't know, because we have no protection."

ON COMPETING WITH ISIS…IN THE SYRIAN HOTEL MARKET

"Islamic terrorism is eating up large portions of the Middle East. They've become rich. I'm in competition with them. They just built a hotel in Syria, can you believe this? They built a hotel."

ON LOSER POLITICIANS

"We have losers. We have losers. We have people that don't have it. We have people that are morally corrupt. We have people that are selling this country down the drain."

ON BEING RICH

"I'm really rich. I'll show you that in a second."

ON HIS NET WORTH

"I have a total net worth and now with the increase it will be well over $10 billion, but here total net worth of $8 billion. Net worth — not assets, not liabilities — a net worth ... I'm not doing that to brag because you know what? I don't have to brag. I don't have to. Believe it or not."

ON BEING NICE

"I think I am a nice person. People who know me like me."
