Since he joined the run for President, his confidence levels seemed to have sky rocketed, and maybe censorship has lost its place in his script for public speeches.
The most recent inflammatory comment was...

"I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters"

(January 24, speaking in Iowa)
According to CNN, many loyal supporters of GOP front-runner have asserted that almost nothing could make them change their mind about voting for Trump in the presidential race.

"(Putin) is a strong leader. He's making mincemeat out of our president"

(December 20, 2015, on Vladimir Putin, President of Russia)
Trump said it would be nice if countries that the US is fighting with actually got along. He told Sunday Express, "We're all tough guys" but it would be nice if Russia and America could knock out an enemy together.

Donald J. Trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country's representatives can figure out what is going on.

Donald Trump called for a "total and complete shutdown" of Muslims entering the United States, following the mass shooting in California. "It's going to get worse and worse. We're going to have more World Trade Centres," he said, referring to the deadly attacks on September 11, 2001.

"It is very hard for them to attack me on looks, because I am so good looking"

(August 7, 2015, defending himself against his critics against his remarks about Fox anchor)
Donald Trump didn't back down following his controversial 'blood' comment regarding Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly, which infuriated political pundits and social media critics. He claimed his controversial statement criticizing Kelly's questioning during the Fox News debate was justified, an NBC News report stated.
 

"Look at the face! Would anyone vote for that? Can you imagine that, the face of our next president?"

(September 9, 2015, on rival Carly Fiorina)
In a Rolling Stones report, Trump's reaction to Carly Fiorina, also a Republican presidential candidate, led him to say "I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not s'posedta say bad things, but really, folks, come on. Are we serious?"  

"Hillary Clinton was the worst Secretary of State in the history of the United States. There's never been a Secretary of State so bad as Hillary. The world blew up around us. We lost everything, including all relationships. There wasn't one good thing that came out of that administration or her being Secretary of State."

(July 8, 2015, on Hillary Clinton)
An example of how tables turn, the real estate magnate who once admired Hillary now thinks she is the worst.
Back in 2012, Trump told Fox News in an interview "Hillary Clinton I think is a terrific woman. I am biased because I have known her for years. I live in New York. She lives in New York. I really like her and her husband both a lot. I think she really works hard. And I think, again, she's given an agenda, it is not all of her, but I think she really works hard and I think she does a good job. I like her.
