(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.


POLICE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: “We don’t need federal troops. We don’t need unnamed, secret, federal agents roaming around the streets of Chicago, taking off our residents without cause, and violating their basic constitutional rights…

The President has been on a campaign now for some time against Democratic mayors across the country, whether it’s me, whether it’s Keisha Lance Bottoms in Atlanta, whether it’s Muriel Bowser in Washington DC, whether it’s Jenny Durkan in Seattle. Do you see a common theme here? The President is trying to divert attention from his failed leadership on COVID-19. He has failed. He has failed. He has failed.”

-Lori Lightfoot, Mayor of Chicago, “Chicago mayor to Trump: It’s ‘not happening,’” news.yahoo.com, July 22, 2020
