Donald Trump announced his presidential bid on Tuesday from Trump Tower in New York. He asked the crowd, “When was the last time we beat China in a trade deal? I beat China all the time.” Positioning himself as a “jobs” president, he outlined the failures of the current administration, saying, “Last quarter our gross domestic product was below zero. Our labor participation rate was the worst since 1978. Our real unemployment is anywhere from 18 to 20 percent. China and Mexico have our jobs.”

Regarding Obamacare, Trump said costs are going up 29, 39, 49 and even 55 percent and deductibles are so high they’re virtually worthless. Pointing at the $5 billion healthcare website that still doesn’t work, he said, “I do a website–it costs me $3.”

Perhaps his most unique position is his net worth of more than $9 billion, plus overseas holdings. He said, “I am very rich… I don’t need anyone’s money.”
