(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.


JOE BIDEN/MIKE PENCE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: [In response to a quote from Mike Pence’s Aug. 26, 2020 speech stating, “The hard truth is, you won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America.”]

“He keeps saying ‘Joe Biden’s America’ while running a video of Donald Trump’s America. The problem we have right now is we’re in Donald Trump’s America…

He views this as a political benefit to him. He’s rooting for more violence, not less, and it’s clear about that. What’s he doing? He’s kept pouring gasoline on the fire. This happens to be Donald Trump’s America…

I condemn violence in any form, whether it’s looting or whatever it is. And by the way, when I spoke to the family [of Jacob Blake], the mom was really incredibly straightforward, she said, ’This is not who we are as a family. This is not who my son is. We condemn the violence.’ And so who is rooting for the violence here?”
