(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.


BORDER/CORONAVIRUS/WALL: “We’re up to almost 300 miles [of border wall]. Can you believe that? Three hundred miles. And it’s moving along rapidly, and we’re very proud of it.

It’s had a tremendous impact on people coming into our country illegally, especially with the pandemic. Because Mexico has got some very big problems on the [coronavirus] pandemic — very heavily infected. And we’ve stopped them. It’s the strongest we’ve been on the border in many, many years. Probably decades. So it’s been very good.”
