(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.

The criticism from Trump and action from the FDA led some scientists to believe the emergency use was politically motivated…

Last week, Trump touted the benefits of the treatment, saying he heard ‘great things about it’ and then he questioned whether its emergency use approval was being slow-walked by bureaucratic opponents until after the Nov. 3 elections.”
