Donald Trump, GOP Debate


Well, this escalated quickly.

Donald Trump was quick to raise his hand right out of the gate during tonight's GOP debate in Cleveland.

The businessman said that he wasn't able to promise that he wouldn't run against his fellow Republicans as an Independent if he didn't end up winning the GOP nomination.

The crowd booed, but Trump refused to let that get to him.

And just when you thought the night was off to a feisty start, Megyn Kelly gave him a chance to explain how (or why) he refers to women as "dogs, slobs and disgusting animals."

Trump interrupted by saying, "Only Rosie O'Donnell!"

But in all seriousness, Trump explained that he is ready to take on Hillary Clinton, saying, "I think the problem this country has is being politically correct. I don't frankly have time for total political correctness and to be honest, neither does this country."

He added, "What I say is what I say if you don't like it I'm sorry. We need strength we need energy we need quickness and we need brains to turn this country around."

Later in the debate, Trump also touched on immigration—more specifically, his infamous border.

"There needs to be a wall and it has to be built quickly and I don't mind having a big beautiful door in the wall so people can come into this country legally…We need to keep illegals out."

But going back to all things Clinton, the former reality star spoke about why he feels that money talks in his business—specifically when it comes to donations made to certain political (or charitable) organizations.

"I'll tell you what, with Hillary Clinton I said 'Be at my wedding,' and she came to my wedding. You know why? She had no choice because I gave. I gave to a foundation that frankly that foundation was supposed to be used towards good. I didn't know that money would be used on private jets going all over the world. It was."
