(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.

ABORTION/SUPREME COURT/TEXAS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Three years after handing down a major decision in favor of abortion rights in a Texas case, the Supreme Court is faced with a nearly identical case from a neighboring state. The biggest difference? There’s a new president in town – and a new Supreme Court. That makes the justices’ upcoming verdict on a Louisiana law requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals significant beyond the state’s borders. Their decision could reveal much about the court’s respect for its own precedents, as well as its willingness or hesitancy to wade into hot-button political issues. Unless they intercede, Louisiana’s law will take effect Monday, even though the high court struck down a nearly identical Texas law in 2016. The Louisiana law was upheld by a federal appeals court dominated by conservatives, including five appointed by President Donald Trump. In a last-ditch effort, abortion rights proponents asked the Supreme Court to block the law’s implementation pending further review. But since the Texas case was decided, former associate justice Anthony Kennedy – who was in the majority – has retired.”
