As the 2016 election approaches its home stretch, Donald Trump is still finding time to invent basically everything he does.

"Do people notice Hillary is copying my airplane rallies - she puts the plane behind her like I have been doing from the beginning."

Critics have argued that he's just doing very normal things people have done for years, and then claiming to have invented them.

A move so old politicians have done it before planes existed.

Trump appears to be aware of such doubts. At a campaign stop in Atlanta, he attempted to put such questions to rest while referring to one of his proudest creations:

"Now a lot of people said I copied from Ronald Reagan. I didn't. Because his thing was different. I didn't even know this. But ... His was 'Let's Make America Great.' That's different. We are 'Make America Great Again.' We're adding to it."

But it's not just things related to his campaign. Trump is creating more hot and wholly original intellectual property than the entire comic book industry combined. For instance, Trump has spent the last few years inventing everything from feelings that the public has to the career of Lady Gaga.

This isn't the first time Trump has faced doubts about whether he understands the meaning of verbs like "to invent," and its many synonyms.

In August, Trump stated, "President Obama is the founder of ISIS." In an effort to dispel doubts that Trump understands how words work, conservative talk radio host Hugh Hewitt attempted to clarify on his behalf, saying that Trump surely meant "that [Obama] created the vacuum, he lost the peace." But Trump interrupted him, clarifying, "No, I meant he's the founder of ISIS."

The media and the Clinton campaign alike remain on high alert, waiting to see what Trump will invent next. "Maybe he'll give someone a high five, thus bringing that into existence. Or perhaps some combination of giving audience members thumbs up with one hand while waving with the other," said an anonymous Clinton staffer. The staffer then moved his hand back and forth near his crotch as if to mimic masturbation. Unfortunately, there's no way to tell what was meant by the gesture, as Donald Trump hasn't invented it yet.
