(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/POLLS/TEXAS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “President Donald Trump’s national emergency declaration to build his border wall will affect Texas more than any other state, and the residents of the Lone Star State are soundly against his decision to use those powers. Three in five Texas voters disapprove of Trump using his emergency executive powers to fund a wall, according to a poll by Quinnipiac University released Tuesday [2-26-19]. That includes 22% of Republicans, 63% of independents and a whopping 99% of Democrats. A little more than half of voters said they don’t think undocumented immigrants crossing the border with Mexico into the US is a national emergency. Overall, Texans are split on their support for Trump’s wall — 48% support building a wall along the border with Mexico and 48% oppose it. The House passed a resolution to overturn Trump’s national emergency declaration Tuesday evening by 245-182. The Senate will be required by law to hold a vote on the resolution within 18 days following passage in the House. Texas has the largest amount of land without fencing or any other type of barrier of the four states along the US-Mexico border.”
