(and Biden)

A free searchable database containing over 35,000 curated and sourced quotes by and about Donald J. Trump, in timeline form with context, created in May 2017. We began adding quotes from Joe Biden soon after he became the presumptive Democratic Party presidential nominee on June 5, 2020. Therefore, searches on most topics will return more Trump than Biden quotes, but we are continuing to add quotes from both 2020 presidential election candidates through the November 3, 2020 election.


BORDER/NATIONAL SECURITY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “President Trump’s greatest hurdle in persuading Americans that there is a national security crisis on the southwest border may well be his own credibility. Mr. Trump is using a rare currency — a prime-time address to the nation — to make the case for a border wall with Mexico, an issue that has forced a partial shutdown of the federal government. His penchant for superlatives — ‘the best,’ ‘the worst,’ ‘never,’ ‘always,’ and now, ‘crisis’ — and his record of falsehoods, misstatements and exaggerations on the topic will likely be challenged as never before.”
