(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.


2016 CAMPAIGN/CONGRESS/FBI/JUSTICE DEPARTMENT/ROBERT MUELLER/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Donald Trump on Wednesday [6-26-19] accused former special counsel Robert Mueller of committing a crime, without providing evidence, by deleting certain text messages sent between two former FBI officials who had been critical of Trump during his 2016 campaign. ‘[Mueller] terminated all the stuff between Strzok and Page,’ Trump told Maria Bartiromo, the host of Fox Business Network’s ‘Mornings with Maria,’ in a wide-ranging phone interview. ‘He terminated them. They’re gone. And that’s illegal. That’s a crime.’ Peter Strzok, who played a key role in the early stages of the Russia investigation, and fellow agent Lisa Page were romantically involved. Both were removed from the team after their affair surfaced through texts that came to light last year. The president bashed the pair in the interview Wednesday, calling them ‘stupid lovers.’ Trump’s comments were a roundabout reference to a report from the Justice Department’s inspector general last year that noted the iPhones used by Strzok and Page during their short stints on Mueller’s staff had been reset to factory settings, erasing the messages they contained.”
