Trump on the Declaration: "It's Not True"

In 2006, Trump did a video to promote a book that bore his name as coauthor.  (He does not actually "write" any of his books.)  At one point, he explicitly denied the central idea of the Declaration of Independence.
The world is not fair. You know they come with this statement "all men are created equal." Well, it sounds beautiful, and it was written by some very wonderful people and brilliant people, but it's not true because all people and all men [laughter] aren't created—now today they'd say all men and women, of course, they would have changed that statement that was made many years ago. But the fact is you have to be born and blessed with something up here [pointing to his head]. On the assumption you are, you can become very rich.
