10 Donald Trump scandals the world really needs to know about

Sit and listen to everyone’s favourite walking, talking, hate-spewing presidential wannabe, Donald Trump, for any length of time, and it’s hard to know whether to laugh or cry at what you hear.

You’d think it would be a contradiction-in-terms for words to be at once totally nonsensical and jaw-droppingly offensive, but the Republican front-runner won’t let anything as minor as logic (or women, or Muslims, or 9/11 victims and their families) get in the way of his preposterous rampage towards the Oval Office and ultimate glory this autumn.

For anyone watching the race unfold from a safe distance on this side of the pond, it can be all too tempting to see Trump as little more than a harmless clown – a sort of expensively coiffed, stars and stripes-waving, trans-Atlantic version of Boris Johnson. The truth is rather more depressing.

By way of proof, here’s our round-up of Trump’s greatest gaffes, biggest blunders and most sordid scandals. Consider it a helpful reminder for why you might want to evacuate the planet come this November, should the unthinkable happen and Trump actually take up tenancy of the White House.
