Donald Trump Deposition Video Finally Goes Public

In a taped deposition, Trump opens up about his comments on Mexicans.

"All I'm doing is bringing up a situation which is very real about immigration. And I think most people think I'm right," Donald Trump said in a newly released deposition video. 

That video shows Trump getting candid about his infamous comments on Mexicans.

"They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists," he said in July 2015.

"Did you write the statement in advance? Was it written?" an attorney asked during the deposition.

"No," Trump said. 

"Did you plan in advance what you were going to say?" she asked.

"Yes," Trump said.

Buzzfeed News filed a court motion to obtain the deposition videos. 

Trump sat for the deposition in June, related to his project to turn Washington, D.C.'s Old Post Office into a hotel.
