Let the games begin again! 

Eleven Republican presidential candidates have gathered together at Reagan Library in Simi Valley, Calif., to talk the future of America and some of the most important issues facing the country.

Hosted by CNN's Jake Tapper, the three-hour plus debate was intended for viewers to gather more information as primaries approach. For better or worse, however, things got started on a dramatic note when frontrunner Donald Trump claimed that Rand Paul "shouldn't even be on this stage. He's 11th in the polls." 

If you think that's bad, you haven't seen much yet.

As the conversation continues Wednesday night, we're taking a look at Trump's most outrageous comments. Based on the past few months, it's safe to say tonight will be unpredictable.
