(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.

CORONAVIRUS/REFUGEES/WALL: “Under my administration, we’ve dramatically reduced refugee resettlement and we’ve suspended refugee resettlement during the [coronavirus] pandemic, you know that we’ve totally suspended it, nobody comes in. Lucky we have the wall, we’re up to 300 miles almost. If we didn’t have that wall, we would be inundated with people and unfortunately, and we’re helping them, we sent them a lot of ventilators and other equipment, but Mexico is being overrun with the pandemic and we would really have a problem.”
