(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.

STEVE BANNON/TRUMP PEOPLE/WALL: “President Donald Trump distanced himself Thursday from Steve Bannon’s efforts to crowdsource private funds for a border wall, saying it was ‘done for showboating reasons’ and ‘inappropriate.’

Trump made the remarks after Bannon, his former senior adviser, was arrested Thursday morning for allegedly swindling donors on the project, run by the non-profit group ‘We Build the Wall.’ A federal grand jury in New York indicted Bannon on charges of money laundering and wire fraud, alleging he and his partners diverted $1 million away from the group and that he spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on his personal expenses.”
