    “It has not been easy for me. It has not been easy for me. I started off in Brooklyn. My father gave me a small loan of a million dollars,” Trump remarked. “I came into Manhattan, and I had to pay him back, and I had to pay him back with interest. But I came into Manhattan and I started buying properties, and I did great.”

    For perspective, $1 million in 1971 is worth $5.8 million today. That’s not what most people would consider “small”.

    But you must understand, “small” is a relative term! That’s pocket change to many Americans.

    This will not end well. How could somebody be so out of touch with the American mainstream as to expect a remark like this to be taken seriously? Does Donald Trump have an autism spectrum disorder? (This is not a tongue-in-cheek question.)
