(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.


JOE BIDEN/MASS SHOOTINGS/OHIO/TEXAS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “In a televised speech on Monday [8-5-19] condemning two mass shootings over the weekend, President Trump mistakenly named the wrong city in Ohio…The speech followed a weekend of violence in two states. After a massacre on Saturday left 22 dead and dozens injured at a Walmart in El Paso, Americans awakened on Sunday to the news of another mass killing overnight, this time an attack in Dayton’s entertainment district that killed nine and injured 27 others. Mr. Trump wasn’t the only politician to trip over the details. On Sunday night, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., who is running for the Democratic presidential nomination, misstated the locations of both shootings. At a fund-raiser, Mr. Biden referred to ‘the tragic events in Houston today and also in Michigan the day before,’ according to a pool report.”
