(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.


CHINA/HONG KONG/SANCTIONS/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “President Trump signed into law a bipartisan bill that requires sanctions on Chinese officials who crack down on the rights of Hong Kong residents to free speech and peaceful assembly, as well as the banks that do business with those officials.

Mr. Trump, speaking to reporters in the White House Rose Garden on Tuesday [July 14], also said he had signed an executive order that he said would end preferential U.S. treatment for Hong Kong, a blow to its status as an international financial center and putting it on equal footing to mainland China. The preferential policies covered everything from trade to travel and extradition.”
