Unfortunately these days, everything – and we do mean everything – is recorded and posted on the Internet, so it is actually quite easy to check out what Dumb Donald really said.
In Atlanta, Georgia on Jun. 15 2016, at a Donald Trump rally, Donald Trump said the following:

Those were the very words (and boy do you know words – you have the best of them) that were coming out of your mouth.
As usual, here’s a screen capture of the tweet, just in case Dumb Donald decide to change it:
