(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/DEMS/IMMIGRATION/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “U.S. Democratic lawmakers on Friday [7-19-19] called President Donald Trump’s latest anti-immigration initiatives ‘unacceptable’ and warned his administration against misappropriating funding authorized only for humanitarian use. The criticism came as two congressional delegations toured the U.S.-Mexico border area near McAllen, Texas, as part of efforts to oversee policies banning nearly all asylum-seekers from entry, warehousing detainees in crowded quarters and holding children separately from the adults they traveled with…While Democrats have denounced Trump for precipitating what they consider a humanitarian crisis, the president’s supporters have applauded him for cracking down on illegal immigration along the 2,000-mile (3,000-km) border. Immigration, one of Trump’s signature issues in the 2016 presidential campaign, is already shaping up as a central issue in November 2020.”
