1. “I defunded Planned Parenthood more than four years ago, I’ve got a position that’s in line with everyday America.”

2. "He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past."

3. "It’s time that we recognize the Supreme Court is not the supreme being, and we change the policy to be pro-life and protect children instead of rip up their body parts and sell them like they’re parts to a Buick."

4. "War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength."

7. "We shall meet in the place where there is no darkness."

8. "If I was trying to destroy this country, what I would do is find a way to drive wedges between all the people, drive the debt to an unsustainable level, and then step off the stage as a world leader and let our enemies increase while we decreased our capacity as a military person. And that’s what [Hillary Clinton] is doing."

9. "We do not merely destroy our enemies; we change them."

10. "Under Obama and Clinton, we found a lot of mush over the last two years."

11. "The Mexican government is much smarter, much sharper, much more cunning. And they send the bad ones over because they don’t want to pay for them. They don’t want to take care of them."
