(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.


IRAN/PALESTINE: “I think two things are going to happen: Iran will — if we win the election, Iran will come and sign a deal with us very, very rapidly, within the first, I would say, week, but let’s give ourselves a month — because their GDP went down 25 percent, which is, like, an unheard of number, and they’d like to be able to get back to having a successful country again. So I think that’ll happen.

And I think, very importantly, the Palestinians will get back into the fold. And when they see all of these countries that, frankly, have been supporters of the Palestinians — very big supporters and, certainly, financial supporters.

As you know, we used to pay the Palestinians $750 million a year, and I ended that some time ago, on the basis that they didn’t seem to want to make peace. And we’ll think about it once we have a deal, but I’ve ended that quite a while ago. I’m frankly surprised they haven’t been to the table earlier.”
