Donald Trump officially entered the already-crowded GOP presidential race this morning. The 69-year-old, worth an estimated $9 billion, announced his presidential bid at Trump Tower in NYC. His message? Immigrants bad. Trump good.

“When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. (Points to crowd) They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that (sic) have lots of problems. And they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs; they’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people. But I speak to border guards and they tell us what we’re getting and it only makes common sense. It only makes common sense. They’re sending us… not the right people. It’s coming from more than Mexico.”

Trump is the son of an immigrant: his mother was born in Scotland and moved to New York at age 18.
