(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/TEXAS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “When a president comes to town there are two realities, the one the White House hopes to create and the one that actually exists. President Trump arrived in this city on the Mexican border on Thursday [1-10-19] to dramatize his desire for a border wall, a hardened position that has caused the partial shutdown of the federal government. He surrounded himself with border agents, victims of horrible crimes, a display of methamphetamine and heroin, an AK-47 and an AR-15 rifle, and a trash bag stuffed with $362,062 in cash that had been confiscated by law enforcement officials. In his view, it all added up to a single word, ‘crisis,’ with a lone solution, building a wall — a point he emphasized in a discussion with the crime victims, law enforcement officers and McAllen residents.”
