Trump March 2016: "He was swinging, he was hitting people, and the audience hit back, and that’s what we need.”
Trump March 2016: "Part of the problem and part of the reason it takes so long is nobody wants to hurt each other anymore, right?”
Trump March 2016: “In the good old days this doesn't happen because they used to treat them very, very rough.”
Trump March 2016: "Get him out. Try not to hurt him. If you do, I'll defend you in court, don't worry about it.”
Trump Dec. 2015: “I hate some of these [journalists], I hate ’em. I would never kill them. I would never do that.”

“Uh, let’s see, uh? No, I would never do that.”
