(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/ELIZABETH WARREN/IMMIGRATION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Senator Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts offered an immigration proposal on Thursday [7-11-19] that would create new protections for migrants, investigate allegations of abuse under the Trump administration and allow far higher numbers of refugees into the country. Ms. Warren’s plan includes an assertive push for liberal immigration priorities, like decriminalizing unauthorized border crossings. She also pledged to establish judicial review for immigration cases and create an ‘Office of New Americans’ that would provide services to immigrants transitioning into American society, including English classes. Ms. Warren has gained ground in polling of the Democratic presidential race in recent months by providing a steady diet of detailed policy proposals on issues including a wealth tax and student debt cancellation. But until Thursday, an immigration proposal had been conspicuously absent. Much of her plan, which she posted on Medium, calls for a suite of measures similar to those that have already been suggested by other Democrats seeking the party’s nomination.”
