(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.
