(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.

MEDIA/MELANIA/TRUMP PEOPLE/WHITE HOUSE STAFF: “Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump’s communications director, will replace Sarah Huckabee Sanders as White House press secretary, continuing the ascent of a former campaign aide who established herself as a loyal and at times combative defender of the Trump family. Ms. Grisham will also take on the added role of communications director, a job that has been vacant since the departure of Bill Shine in March, and will keep her role in the East Wing. Mrs. Trump made the announcement Tuesday [6-25-19] on Twitter. While other names were initially floated for the job, President Trump’s choice of Ms. Grisham ensured that another loyalist would become the public face of an administration that has been defined by its pugilistic relationships with journalists. But Ms. Grisham’s appointment — to a three-in-one role that will include managing overall communications strategy, daily relations with the news media and incoming requests for the East Wing — also crystallizes how much the nature of those jobs have changed under Mr. Trump.”
