Looks like Donald Trump is back in the news.
Donald Trump, while endorsing Mitt Romney in 2012:
"It's my honor — real honor, and privilege to endorse Mitt Romney. And by the way, this is a great couple. Mitt is tough. He's smart. He's sharp. He's not going to allow bad things to continue to happen to this country that we all love. So, Governor Romney? Go out and get 'em. You can do it."
Donald Trump in 2016, after Mitt Romney suggested that Trump may have a "bombshell" in his tax returns:
When Mitt Romney asked me for my endorsement last time around, he was so awkward and goofy that we all should have known he could not win!

Mitt Romney, who was one of the dumbest and worst candidates in the history of Republican politics, is now pushing me on tax returns. Dope!

Donald Trump on Hillary Clinton in 2008:
"Well, I'm a big fan of Hillary's. She's a terrific woman. She's a friend of mine. I think she was treated very poorly and I think it's hurt Barack Obama quite badly. But she's a terrific woman."
Donald Trump in 2015, as the possibility of running against Clinton loomed:
Hillary Clinton is weak and ineffective - no strength, no stamina.

"@Tony_Leers: Hillary Clinton is a deceitful career politician, Donald Trump is a no-nonsense billionaire businesses man...pick one.."

Donald Trump on John McCain in an interview with CNN in 2008:
"I know John McCain very well. He's not another George Bush. He's very different than George Bush. I really think he'll be a great president. I think he's going to do a really good job. He's a tough guy, he's a smart guy, he's a very, very bright guy, he's a very, very — he's just a quality human being."
In an interview with Wolf Blitzer that same year:
"I've known John for a long time, Wolf, and he's a solid person, a great man. He's a very loyal person and he's a very smart guy. And by the way, he's very, very tough, which is what you need nowadays."
Donald Trump in 2015, after McCain attacked Trump's positions on immigration:
.@SenJohnMcCain should be defeated in the primaries. Graduated last in his class at Annapolis--dummy!

Donald Trump on Chris Christie in 2012:
Proud to see my friend Governor Chris Christie standing up for Israel on his visit. Standing tall!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 6, 2012
In 2015, when Christie was running against his for the presidency:
How is Chris Christie running the state of NJ, which is deeply troubled, when he is spending all of his time in NH? New Jerseyans not happy!

Donald Trump on The Fix's Chris Cillizza in 2015:
One of the dumber and least respected of the political pundits is Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post @TheFix. Moron hates my poll numbers

In 2016, after Cillizza wrote something positive:
