(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.

DEMS/MASS SHOOTINGS/TEXAS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “Democratic Rep. Veronica Escobar of Texas on Tuesday [8-6-19] said she declined an invitation to join President Donald Trump on his upcoming visit to El Paso, Texas, as the city recovers from a mass shooting…Trump’s visit to El Paso Wednesday [8-7-19] comes after a man opened fire at a shopping center, killing 22 people on Saturday. A 21-year-old white supremacist is in custody in the domestic terrorism case. In a televised address Monday, Trump called on the nation to ‘condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy’ but stopped short of acknowledging his own divisive and racist rhetoric. Speaking with CNN’s Chris Cuomo on ‘Cuomo Prime Time’ later on Tuesday, Escobar said Trump’s rhetoric ‘dehumanizes’ the El Paso community…Escobar’s criticism joins that of Democratic presidential candidate and El Paso native Beto O’Rourke, who has also urged Trump to not visit the city.”
