(and Biden)

A searchable database containing over 30,000 curated and sourced quotes by and about Donald J. Trump, 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.


JOHN BOLTON/TRUMP PEOPLE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “This is not a conservative administration nor is policy made in a coherent, competent way… There really isn’t any guiding principle — that I was able to discern other than– what’s good for Donald Trump’s reelection.

Now, look, you can’t take the politics out of politics. It plays a role in every aspect of decision making in the executive branch. But there’s no coherent basis, no strategy, no philosophy. And decisions are made in a very scatter shot fashion, especially in the potentially mortal field of national security policy. This is a danger for the republic.”
