Donald Trump was falsely quoted saying, “If I were to run, I’d run as a Republican. They’re the dumbest group of voters in the country. They believe anything on Fox News. I could lie and they’d still eat it up. I bet my numbers would be terrific.” The statement began circulating in October of 2015, when Trump’s candidacy began gaining momentum. However, no evidence was ever found in any interview of the billionaire making the claimed statement.
