(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.


FOREIGN AID/MILITARY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/UKRAINE: “The Trump administration has lifted its hold on $250 million in military assistance to Ukraine following intense bipartisan backlash from lawmakers who argued that the funding is crucial for warding off Russian aggression in the region. POLITICO first reported last month that President Donald Trump asked his national security team to review funding for the program, known as the Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative, in order to ensure the money is being used in the best interests of the United States. A senior administration official confirmed on Thursday that the funds are now available. The official didn’t provide any information on the results of the administration’s review. Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) told POLITICO that the security assistance was released on Wednesday [9-11-19] night.”
