All quotes about Trump Presidency

Harvey Levin - TMZ

We talked about his brother's death and his fear that he might become an alcoholic because he might have a gene. You rarely hear him describe his own fears.feedback

Jacqueline Robarge

Our job is to help those services really make it deep into the community. And if they aren't going to arrive, we want to have an accounting that these people have been suffering for decades. It really is disingenuous if the resources are only going to be directed at the suburbs and the counties where, basically, the white folks are getting high.feedback

George Clooney

While we were shooting Trump got elected, and sort of changed the temperature on the film a little bit. The goofy seemed too goofy. . . . It felt like things got darker and angrier.feedback

Christopher Ruddy - Newsmax

I've seen him in so many settings, and he gets along with everybody – Democrats, Republicans. I have encouraged him privately and publicly to become more bipartisan. The Donald Trump I know was not as contentious as he has been as president. People say, Why do you think he's so contentious?' And I say, The campaign brought out a different, tougher side. He put on his warrior outfit and goes out every day to fight hard.' He's a kid on the street of Queens.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Addressing it will require all of our effort, and it will require us to confront the crisis in all of its very real complexity.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We will defeat this opioid epidemic. We are going to overcome addiction in America. That's 175 lost American lives per day. That's seven lost lives per hour in our country. Drug overdoses are now the leading cause of unintentional death in the United States by far.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It's very hard to get out of the addiction of heroin. We're going to work with them, we're going to spend the money, we're going to get that habit broken.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I would not be a president who took vacations. I would not be a president that takes time off.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The opioid crisis is an emergency, and I'm saying officially right now: It is an emergency. It's a national emergency. We're going to draw it up and we're going to make it a national emergency. It is a serious problem, the likes of which we have never had. Every person who buys illicit drugs in America should know they are risking their future, their families, and even their lives. And every American should know that if they purchase illegal drugs, they are helping to finance some of the most violent, cruel, and ruthless organizations anywhere in the world.feedback

Donald J. Trump

But it really helped me. I had somebody that guided me. And he had a very, very, very tough life because of alcohol, believe me, very, very tough life. He was a strong guy, but it was a tough, tough thing that he was going through. But I learned because of Fred, I learned.feedback

Dean Popplewell

We're starting to see smart money willing to buy the U.S. dollar, but now we need to get more clarity on the Fed and other issues. People were expecting Trump to follow through on his campaign promises of fiscal stimulus and tax cuts, which would have given the dollar a massive boost.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

We have already launched work enabling our community to flag hoaxes and fake news, and there is more we can do here. We have made progress, and we will continue to work on this to improve further.feedback

Steve Bannon

We did not come here to defy Donald Trump, we came here to praise and honor him.feedback

Barry James

You could say that we have a divided government now, even though there's 'Republican' behind the names of all the people who run it. Washington looks like it is going to be less of a factor moving forward.feedback

Nelson Peltz

We got a pilot, his name is Trump. And like it or not, we only have one pilot. Why don't we get behind this pilot and support him instead of crying in our beer that someone else didn't get elected and picking him to pieces. Is he perfect? No. But he is our pilot so let's land this plane.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

The reasons for former vice president Joe Biden not to run in 2020 for president are not insubstantial. He has run unsuccessfully for president twice before. He will turn 78 in November 2020. At a time insiders are vilified, he’s truly a lifetime politician, having served in one capacity or another from 1970 (on the county council) to January 2017. He’s famously undisciplined in rhetoric - although compared with President Trump, he’s a regular Calvin Coolidge.feedback

James Downie

Two new polls out Wednesday comprise a startling finding: More Democrats now view George W. Bush favorable than unfavorably. An Economist-YouGov poll gives him a 51 percent favorability rating among Democrats; a Fox News poll puts him at 48 percent. Democrats’ estimation of the former president has risen at an increasing clip since President Trump entered the White House, but Bush’s favorability among Democrats seems to have jumped since a speech he gave last Thursday that criticized Trump (though not by name): “We have seen our discourse degraded by casual cruelty, ” he said. “Disagreement escalates into dehumanization. … We’ve seen nationalism distorted into nativism - forgotten the dynamism that immigration has always brought to America.”.feedback

Mark Halperin - MSNBC

If that's the best they got on these issues and Donald Trump, Donald Trump should be celebrating that story. There's some troubling things in the piece, but there's nothing illegal, there's nothing even kind of, like, beyond boorish or politically incorrect, which is built into the Donald Trump brand. So, if that's the best they have in this score, Donald Trump can celebrate this story, politically.feedback

Mark Halperin - MSNBC

Doing what he did yesterday, in commenting on Bill O'Reilly – to reporters, in the Oval Office, right before his statement on Syria – is not normal for a president. It creates a huge distraction, gets tons of coverage. And yesterday should have been about projecting strength, as he did, on Syria. But it's pure Trump and classic Trump for him to then also be willing to address Bill O'Reilly. There's no reason for him to address it. None.feedback

Bob Corker

Look, tax reform is our agenda. It's the Republican Senate agenda.feedback

Jonathan Franks

With growing speculation that indictments could be handed down soon, it's not a surprise that others are attempting to accomplish in the press what they cannot in the grand jury room.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It is so dishonest. It is so fake. And you know, I have come up with some pretty good names for people. I think one of the best names–you know, I've really started this whole fake news thing. Now they've turned it around, and now they're calling, you know, stories put out by Facebook fake, and they're fake. What could be more fake than CBS and NBC and ABC and CNN when you look at some of these stories?feedback

Jennifer Rubin

President Trump knew how to ride to the White House on a wave of white resentment, evangelical victimhood and Fox News watchers’ obsession with foreigners. His fixation on cultural and racial pot-stirring has continued, of course, with a wink to neo-Nazis in Charlottesville, pandering to “values voters” (You can say “Merry Christmas”!), attacks on the hated media (Pull their license!) and most recently, the NFL kneeling brouhaha. After you have played this game for nine months, however, the audience … er … electorate may be getting bored.feedback

Joaquin Castro

It goes to show that [the U.S. Department of Homeland Security] aren't prioritizing criminals or people who are national security threats. They are going after children. This is a perfect example of the callousness of the Trump administration.feedback

Mike Pence

This president, you can know with confidence that America condemns persecution of any faith in any place at any time, and we will stand against it with all of the might of this great nation. In fact, President Trump has directed me to go to the Middle East in late December. And I promise you one of the messages that I will bring on the president's behalf to leaders across the region is that now is the time to bring an end to the persecution of Christians and all religious minorities.feedback

Leana Wen

The plans would also allow states to waive the requirement to cover pre-existing conditions, immediately pricing people with [opioid use disorders] out of the individual market.feedback

Rafael Lemaitre - Federal Emergency Management Agency

Answer to opioids is dedicated, long term funding from Congress it deserves–not raiding the rainy day fund for disasters.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

The appetite among Republicans for repudiating President Trump, defending democratic norms and deploring nativism, xenophobia and protectionism is apparently so slight that the only major Republican elected officials willing to go after him are two moderate female senators (Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and Susan Collins of Maine), two senators not seeking reelection (Jeff Flake and Bob Corker), Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) and moderate Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.), who is also retiring.feedback

Robert Gebelhoff

The Trump administration has so far completely botched the national response to the opioid epidemic. More than two months after President Trump described the epidemic to reporters as a “national emergency” and a week after Trump promised to declare it so, the White House stopped short of that designation. Instead, it opted to declare a “public health emergency, ” waiving some health-care regulations for states and promising other initiatives in the weeks to come.feedback

Shashank Shekhar - Arcus

Mortgage-backed securities (MBS) continue to see pressure as expectations of tax reform passing continues to increase as does the speculation that we will see a new Fed chair appointed by Trump whose approach will be more pro-growth. As we know, good news for the economy is usually bad news for MBS and hence the mortgage rates. So expect the rates to continue to inch up in the coming weeks.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Despite the eloquence of former president George W. Bush and Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) - all of whom have discussed the unfitness of President Trump and the unacceptability of Trumpism - we have yet to see a throng of brave Republicans step forward to grab their party back from the president. Flake declared from the Senate floor.feedback

Christopher S. Murphy

I haven't taken a look at the Hatch-Brady bill in detail but it looks to me a lot like the skinny repeal bill that didn't pass the Senate when it was first offered and would likely result in millions of people losing coverage. We have 60 votes for Alexander-Murray in the Senate right now. I don't see why we don't put that bill on the floor.feedback

Elinore F. McCance-Katz

We don't have information about what the announcement will be, and so I can't comment on it. I honestly don't know.feedback

Lori Lodes

For the first time since the Trump administration came into office you have seen a commitment to customer service that I didn't know they were going to have.feedback

Bill Cassidy

Even if we passed it in the Senate we would not pass it in the House and the president would not sign... an exercise in futility right now it seems better to kind of continue working through. Chris was great. I had worked with Tim Murphy on the House side and Chris approached me and said can we work on this together and we didn't know each other that well but our staffs worked together… We got something really significant through and it shows we can work on a bipartisan basis and again I thank my colleague.feedback

Becky Salay

The problem is enormous and requires a similar investment in a comprehensive strategy that includes primary prevention.feedback

Zack Cooper

If you told me in advance that we'd find this tight a link between Congress and hospitals, I would have been very surprised.feedback

John Yarmuth

These tax cuts will not create an economic boom, but will instead lead to a higher concentration of wealth among the rich, while dramatically increasing deficits and debt.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

We noticed. “Trump: I ‘really started this whole fake news thing.'”.feedback

Sharon Epperson - CNBC

The number of workers who have $1 million or more saved in 401(k) or other workplace retirement plans provided by Fidelity Investments nearly doubled from 2012 to 2014, according to the firm. In a separate study, Fidelity analyzed over 5,500 plan participants who made less than $150,000 a year, yet had amassed over $1 million in 401(k) assets by the end of 2012.feedback

Grant Cardone - The New York Times

The 401(k) is merely where you kiss your money away for 40 years hoping it grows up. Rather than focusing on saving, focus on earning – you can't save your way to millionaire status.feedback

Michael R. Bloomberg

One of the things that is hurting us both in the United States and in the UK is that we have employees, not a lot but some, who are starting to say: 'I don't want to work here – can we transfer to someplace else? This country doesn't like immigrants'. It is really hard to understand why a country that was doing so well wanted to ruin it. It was not a smart thing to do and getting out of it is going to be very difficult and is going to be very painful. It will hurt industries. People are already taking space in other cities over there [Europe], us included.feedback

Josh Rogin

The Trump administration is belatedly working to implement the first part of Russia-related sanctions mandated by legislation President Trump signed almost three months ago. Having blown through the first deadline, the administration is now faced with a skeptical Congress preparing a range of action-forcing measures.feedback

Neda Toloui-Semnani

Trump is no Khomeini. But destroying the old order at all costs is often a mistake.feedback

Shinzo Abe

I will pursue decisive and strong diplomacy to tackle North Korea's missile, nuclear and abduction issues and put further pressure to get it to change its policy.feedback

Vince Chhabria

Although you wouldn't know it from reading the states' papers in this lawsuit, the truth is that most state regulators have devised responses. Both sides have reasonable arguments.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The opioid is a tremendous emergency. Next week, I'm going to (be) declaring an emergency, (a) national emergency on drugs.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It would be wonderful if we could speak to China and Russia. Because China is helping us and maybe Russia is going through the other way and hurting what we're getting.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The 19th Party Congress provides the opportunity for us to get some things done in the relationship to put us on a good footing deep into the future.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I have it down to two or three people. But I think she is terrific. We had a great talk. And we are obviously doing very well together, looking at the markets.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I would like to say you (as president) would like to make your own mark, which is maybe one of the things she has a little bit against her.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I can only say this, I was really nice to her [Ms Johson], I respect her, I respect her family, I certainly respect La David, who by the way I called La David right from the beginning. Just so you understand, they put a chart in front La David, it says 'La David Johnson.feedback

Tom Price

We believe that at this point, the resources that we need or the focus that we need to bring to bear to the opioid crises can be addressed without the declaration of an emergency.feedback

Roger Stone

If the data dump that the National Archives did in July of a small amount of JFK-related material is any indication, the fallback of the intelligence agencies appears to be redact and withhold as much as this information as possible. They'll use the broad rubric of national security. If the censorship is so great to make the president's order meaningless, it'll get litigated in the courts.feedback

Donald J. Trump

This epidemic is a national health emergency. As Americans we cannot allow this to continue. If we can teach young people, and people generally, not to start, it's really, really easy not to take 'em. There is nothing desirable about drugs. They're bad.feedback

Darius Adamczyk - Honeywell International

If tax reform occurs in its presently drafted form, the $17 billion could be deployed entirely in the U.S. and be apportioned amongst dividend, M&A, share repurchases and debt repayment.feedback

Bill Samuels

The effect of Trump nationally, even here in New York, of people putting their heads in the sand, versus fighting back with courage, is very worrisome. The fear is real and fascinating.feedback

Ted Lieu

Every time the president does something erratic, which is every day, we get more co-sponsors.feedback

Edward J. Markey

President Trump's provocative and escalatory rhetoric, with threats to unleash 'fire and fury' and 'totally destroy' North Korea, cannot be allowed to turn into reality. As long as President Trump has a Twitter account, we must ensure that he cannot start a war or launch a nuclear first strike without the explicit authorization of Congress.feedback

John Conyers

As a veteran of the Korean war, I am ashamed that our commander-in-chief is conducting himself in a reckless manner that endangers our troops stationed in South Korea and our regional allies.feedback

Steve Chiavarone - Federated Investors

You've got a situation where companies are more confident in investing in technology rather than human capital because they know it will come with a fixed cost and may do the job just as well, if not better.feedback

Chris Christie

My view is that this action sends a clear signal from the president that he wants money appropriated into that fund. And it gives Congress a place to go with that money to give the administration some flexibility to use it to be able to use it to deal with some of the most pressing parts of it. That will bend the curve back in terms of lost lives.feedback

Francisco Monaldi

I have no doubts that Mexico could be more attractive than Brazil. But the possible combination of Trump and Lopez Obrador is scary for investors.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I had a very respectful conversation with the widow of Sgt. La David Johnson, and spoke his name from beginning, without hesitation!feedback

Diane Black

I still feel strongly about addressing unsustainable mandatory spending. I think we will tackle this important issue in the future. We don't have a choice.feedback

Diane Black

Put simply, we have the opportunity to make history by reforming our tax system for the first time in nearly three decades. President Trump is with us on this, and I agree that we must move quickly.feedback

Kim Han-kwon

North Korea has been walking a diplomatic tightrope by taking advantage of strategic mistrust between China and Russia, but it has not been easy as Beijing has sternly responded to its nuclear and missile provocations. China's party congress is over, but Kim Jong Un's concerns will only continue to deepen. The most significant event at hand is the upcoming summit between Xi and (U.S. President Donald) Trump.feedback

Kellyanne Conway

Drug demand and opioid misuse is the crisis next door. This is no longer someone else's co-worker, someone else's community, someone else's kid. Drug use knows no geographic boundaries or demographic differences.feedback

James Blumenstock

I think our general feeling is, that's a good step, but it's a temporary step, and it's a transitional step.feedback

Patrick Kennedy

Can we do this on the cheap, or are we going to be serious about saving lives?feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

This is obviously a growing epidemic that the president is very committed to fighting against. He has been working with his policy advisers and his team diligently, and all of the relevant components and agencies.feedback

Donald J. Trump

That's a big step. That is a very, very big statement. It's a very important step.feedback

Scott Pruitt

Putting Pruitt in charge of the E.P.A. was like putting the fox in the henhouse. I'm sorry – for future viewers, foxes and hens were two animals that lived on earth before climate change rendered them extinct. We have a leader who has a personality disorder, but he's done what he actually told the people he was going to do, and they're not going to abandon him.feedback

Leon E. Panetta

As somebody who worked with this guy, a lot of what he got up to say is a reflection of who John Kelly is.feedback

Peter Baker - The New York Times

This past summer, the Trump administration debated lowering the annual cap on refugees admitted to the United States. Should it stay at 110,000, be cut to 50,000 or fall somewhere in between? John F. Kelly offered his opinion. If it were up to him, he said, the number would be between zero and one.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Can you believe that Mitch McConnell, who has screamed 'repeal and replace' for 7 years, couldn't get it done? Mitch, get back to work.feedback

Bob Corker

Any thought of fiscal responsibility has gone out the window. Now that we're in charge we don't care about fiscal issues. It's very disheartening.feedback

Bill Cassidy

Lindsey and the president are the most interesting couple in Washington. They kind of fuss with each other, and then they go play golf.feedback

Lindsey Graham

He's very popular in my state. When I help him, it helps me back home. And I think it probably helps him to be able to do business with an old rival who's seen as a deal maker.feedback

Lindsey Graham

He's a lot of fun. He's just like me. He's just a B.S. artist on the golf course.feedback

Peter Wehner

There's a rule of thumb when it comes to Donald Trump: Everybody who gets close to him or supportive of him in one way or another is stained by him. I suspect that Lindsey Graham is going to find that out the hard way. He'll be used.feedback

Lindsey Graham

I'm going to try to stay in a position where I can have input to the president. I can help him where I can, and he will call me up and pick my brain. Now, if you're a United States senator, that's a good place to find yourself.feedback

Rick Santorum

We were getting nowhere until Lindsey met with Trump, and Trump said, Hey, you've got to start working with these guys. They were paying us lip service until Trump said, Hey, I want this to happen., As Lindsey got Trump more engaged, the White House got more engaged.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We have become friends while working to get health care and tax cuts for the American people. Senator Graham is a fighter and a good person.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Publicity seeking Lindsey Graham falsely stated that I said there is moral equivalency between the KKK, neo-Nazis & white supremacists, and people like Ms. Heyer. Such a disgusting lie. He just can't forget his election trouncing. The people of South Carolina will remember!feedback

Steve Bannon

Trump's got the populist nationalists. But Pence is the base. Without Pence, you don't win.feedback

Brian Fallon

I regret I didn't know about Christopher Steele's hiring pre-election. If I had, I would have volunteered to go to Europe and try to help him. If I'd gotten his dossier before Nov 8, I may have tried to convince Mook & Podesta to let me hold a Comey-style press conference to read it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I understand they paid a tremendous amount of money. And Hillary Clinton always denied it. The Democrats always denied it…They're embarrassed by it. But I think it's a disgrace. It's a very sad commentary on politics in this country. Why isn't the House Intelligence Committee looking into the Bill & Hillary deal that allowed big Uranium to go to Russia. Uranium deal to Russia, with Clinton help and Obama Administration knowledge, is the biggest story that Fake Media doesn't want to follow!feedback

Donald J. Trump

Well, I think it's very sad what they've done with this fake dossier. Hillary Clinton always denied it, the Democrats always denied it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

But if you know, long before he ever knew me, during the campaign, even before the campaign, I mean, he came out with this horrible book and I said who is this guy? In fact, I remember the first time I saw him on television – nobody really knew me in terms of politics – but the first time I saw him on television I said 'I assume he's a Democrat? Is he a Democrat?' They said, No, he's a Republican.' I said, That's impossible.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think they feel they have to do it for the country. We have, actually, great unity in the Republican Party.feedback

Laura Ingraham

I hope that a lot of the men and women who feel forgotten in this country really see that they have in me a champion. This is about the movement. Trump is invaluable - he's the titular head of the movement. But it's like with George W. Bush. I campaigned for him in 2004, and by the end of it, I wasn't invited to any of the White House events. You know, he'll probably, uh, be irked. We are friends, but friends tell friends when they go off course. And I'm sure he'll tell me when he thinks I'm deviating from what's proper and thoughtful. And I'll do the same with him.feedback

Bob Corker

You would think he would aspire to be the president of the United States and act like a president of the United States, but that's not going to be the case apparently. I've seen no evolution in an upward way. In fact, I would say, he's almost devolved.feedback

Xavier Becerra

The fight for affordable healthcare moves forward. The actions by the Trump Administration undermine critical payments that keep costs of healthcare affordable for working families. The judge made clear in his ruling that the ACA is the law of the land. Without an emergency order halting the Trump action, swift action in this litigation becomes even more compelling.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Maybe we'll use it as negotiating, but trust me ... there are certain kinds of deals you don't want to negotiate with.feedback

Kevin Brady

No decision's yet been made on if there will be any changes. We're simply considering ideas to help people save more and save early in life. If we can reach consensus on that, including with the president, in a good way, we'll move forward - but if not, we will keep things as they are. All the focus is on can we help people save more.feedback

Adam Schiff

Christopher Steele, no matter who was paying for his services, may have discovered before our own intelligence agencies that the Russians were going to interfere in our election on behalf of Donald Trump.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Spoke to President Xi of China to congratulate him on his extraordinary elevation. Also discussed NoKo & trade, two very important subjects! Melania and I look forward to being with President Xi & Madame Peng Liyuan in China in two weeks for what will hopefully be a historic trip!feedback

Hilary Shelton

As we look at some of the shifts our country has made with the election of Donald Trump, we're looking to improve our ability to be more effective given the realities of our country today. We have to adjust our approach accordingly.feedback

Brian Fallon

I have no idea what Fusion or [Christopher] Steele were paid but if even a shred of that dossier ends up helping [Special Counsel Robert] Mueller, it will prove money well spent.feedback

Tom Cotton

The unelected Mr. Cordray issued yet another stupid regulation that would have hurt consumers, the people's democratically elected representatives voted to stop the regulation, and now Mr. Cordray whines that Congress stopped his stupid regulation. It's well past time for Mr. Cordray to resign and begin his long-expected losing campaign for Governor of Ohio. If he won't, President Trump should fire him.feedback

Bill Bradley - Anheuser-Busch

That's like handing somebody a Molotov cocktail with the fuse going. Nobody will know what it is. You hand this to somebody. They're supposed to vote. Then they vote and the whole thing explodes. You can't work bipartisan unless you have something to work with. And the whole strategy is, Do what I say or I'm going to come into your state and defeat you.' That's the whole strategy. That's not a strategy. What about the country?feedback

Bill Bradley - Anheuser-Busch

We haven't seen anything specific. In the 1980s, you had three separate extremely detailed proposals.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Let's take a look at the costs and then see if it's possible to do, because that would save a lot of money into the future, and it would also put a lot of people to work. So let's see what we can do.feedback

Dave Brat

We're asleep. The swamp's still in control and we don't have any big wins under our belt.feedback

Ed Gillespie

I appreciate your point – this is a conversation I think we need to have.feedback

Ed Gillespie

I just don't have time to do this kind of punditry. I'm just a candidate, I'm just out there talking about the issues.feedback

Corey Stewart

He's your standard Republican – a 1980s model Republican. If Ed wins, it's an indication that things haven't changed that much.feedback

Frank Luntz

He told me to shut up. He said we needed to be unified and that when a decision had been made, I needed to go along with it.feedback

Ed Gillespie

You can cherry-pick clients all you want. You could have picked Friends of Cancer Research, as well, or the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.feedback

Chris Jankowski

It was clear to me that he wasn't going to get into another presidential campaign. He just had enough.feedback

Sheila Krumholz

It's fair to call Ed Gillespie one of the principal architects of 'dark money.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I'm the builder president – remember that – so, I understand this stuff.feedback

Jeff Flake

You can't continue to just remain silent. There is a tipping point. I hope we're reaching that tipping point.feedback

Jeff Flake

It's up to us to stand us and say 'This is not acceptable'. The weight of it causes people to change and say 'I can't take it any more.feedback

Greg Abbott

I applaud you for constantly working with me and the state of Texas to make sure we are recovered.feedback

Dan Patrick

The response from this administration dealing with this storm has far exceeded any previous administration in response to these storms.feedback

Gary Mendell

The opioid epidemic must be declared a federal emergency. Once done so, the lives of our sons and daughters depend on action being taken immediately to ensure that medication-assisted treatment is readily available for every single American with an opioid use disorder.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Well as you know I -- I've been seeing a number of people and most people are saying it's down to two, Mr. Taylor, Mr. Powell. I also met with Janet Yellen, who I like a lot. I really like her a lot. So I have three people that I'm looking at. And there are a couple of others. I said I will make my decision very shortly.feedback

Jeff Flake

With respect and humility, I must say that we have fooled ourselves for long enough that a pivot to governing is right around the corner. A return to civility and stability right behind it. We know better than that.feedback

Paul Ryan

I think people should settle their differences personally. I think it's better that way. I think it's in our interest to have party unity so that we can continue to work forward on an agenda.feedback

Jeff Flake

Privately a number of my colleagues have expressed concern about the direction of our politics and the behavior of the president. There comes a tipping point where you realize we just can't continue to normalize this kind of behavior so I do think we'll have more people stand up in the coming months.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think she's a fantastic woman. I was extremely nice to her, extremely respectful. Well I think it's always okay, when somebody says something about you that is false, I think it's always okay to counterpunch or to fight back.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think the press makes me more uncivil than I am. I went to an Ivy League college, I was a nice student, I did very well. I'm a very intelligent person.feedback

Kevin Brady

We're working very closely with the president. We think, in tax reform, we can create incentives for Americans to save more and save sooner, which can help them. So we are exploring a number of ideas in those areas. ... We are continuing discussions with the president, all focused on saving more, saving sooner.feedback

Mike Schumacher - Wells Fargo Securities

It's essentially the Fed lottery at this point. I can't imagine how, if I was Donald Trump, how I could view Taylor and Powell as the same.feedback

Chuck Schumer

I don't know if the man's deliberately lying, but it seems so. His statements are outlandish, and he seems just to want to, I don't know if I'm allowed to use this word, I think I am, suck up to Trump, flatter Trump. … This man cannot be believed. And if he used these kinds of arguments at Goldman Sachs, they would have fired him.feedback

Kevin Brady

At the end of the day, we're looking at encouraging people to save more and save early. We're looking through a number of ideas. No decisions have been made. At the end of the day, retirement will be strengthened or it will remain as it is.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I do think we can do a lot of privatizations and private prisons. It seems to work a lot better.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think the press makes me more uncivil than I am. You know, people don't understand. I went to an Ivy League college. I was a nice student. I did very well. I'm a very intelligent person. I think it's always OK, when somebody says something about you that's false, I think it's always OK to counterpunch or to fight back.feedback

We have 13 days left. . . . That's his message he's going with? Character assassination instead of a debate on public policy? The fact that Delegate Marshall is willing to forgive Donald Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women but attack the woman running against him reflects his 26 years of bad judgment in office after he's spent his career trying to restrict women's rights, including his support for government-mandated transvaginal ultrasounds.feedback

Donald J. Trump

In fact I remember the first time I saw him on television I said, I assume he's a Democrat, is he a Democrat?' and they said, He's a Republican'. I said, that's impossible.feedback

When Khizr and Ghazala Khan took the stage at the Democratic National Convention in 2016 to condemn Donald Trump for the way he spoke about Muslims and immigrants on the campaign trail, they were speaking with the authority of Gold Star families. And when Mr. Khan brandished his copy of the Constitution and offered to lend it to the Republican nominee, now the president of the United States, he was doing more than that: He was making a wager on the quality of his own citizenship and love for America, a gamble he won when Trump responded with the first of a number of tantrums aimed at military families.feedback

Jeff Flake

The bottom line is if I were to run a campaign that I could be proud of, and where I didn't have to cozy up to the president and his positions or his behavior, I could not win in a Republican primary. In poll after poll, you'll see a majority of Republican primary voters, kind of a subset within a subset, are firmly behind the president's policies … and if you ask them as a whole what their most important policy item is, it's, Are you standing with the president?feedback

Rob Portman

We shouldn't allow Twitter to distract us from the work we're supposed to be doing. You have to work with the president.feedback

Rob Portman

Both of them are for tax reform. The notion I've heard this morning that they're somehow going to vote the other way because of their views about the president is crazy. They're going to do what's best for the people they represent.feedback

Alex Friedmann

They have to lobby and curry political favor because that's what their business model is based on.feedback

James Murdoch is the chief executive of 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News. He’s the fellow who has long been depicted in news accounts as a sane and moderating influence on the leading cable-news channel - a counterweight to former Fox News chief Roger Ailes, who died in May after a long career of distorting the nation’s politics. Murdoch scolded President Trump in a much-discussed internal company email. “James regarded many of the people at Fox News as thuggish Neanderthals and said he was embarrassed to be in the same company with them, ” wrote Michael Wolff, a biographer of Rupert Murdoch.feedback

Donald J. Trump

He was up against me before he ever knew me. He wrote a book about me before I ever met him, before I ever heard his name. His poll numbers in Arizona are so low that he couldn't win and I don't blame him for leaving. I think he did the right thing for himself. But if you know, long before he ever knew me, during the campaign, even before the campaign, he came out with this horrible book, and I said, Who is this guy?' In fact, I remembered, the first time I saw him on television I had not -- nobody knew me in terms of politics.feedback

Montel Williams

If I offended you, I don't have a right to tell you how to feel, you have a right to be offended, and if you are offended, then as a man I should step up to the plate and apologize.feedback

Montel Williams

Step up and apologize. Be a man and call that woman and apologize. We honor your husband's service, we thank you for your service as a wife, we thank your children for their service and we thank your unborn child for her service because she's going to have to live the rest of her life knowing that her father died . . . defending us.feedback

America's skies are changing – UAS now outnumber manned aircraft, which had dominated our airspace since World War II. Our regulatory framework has not kept pace with this change.feedback

Michael Steele

What Trump has done is weaponize the relationship between the base and the establishment. Now he's been able to back the threats up by executing on those threats. Bannon is (his) weapon.feedback

Nick Ayers

Just imagine the possibilities of what can happen if our entire party unifies behind (Trump). If – and this sounds crass – we can purge the handful of people who continue to work to defeat him.feedback

The reason Flake and Corker dropped out of the Senate race is very simple, they had zero chance of being elected. Now act so hurt & wounded! The meeting with Republican Senators yesterday, outside of Flake and Corker, was a love fest with standing ovations and great ideas for USA!feedback

Michael Morell

There is no doubt that the Trump administration followed the basic strategy set in place by the Obama administration. There is no doubt that Obama would have gotten where Trump is at this moment as well.feedback

Nate Boyer

It's kind of what I hinted at in the letter. We need less lines in the sand, and literally in that rap, he's saying, I'm drawing a line in the sand. You're either with me or against me. You're either for or against.' All these things I said in the letter, he said in that song. I understand the anger. I understand the frustration. I understand being upset with the remarks that President Trump has said because those also can be viewed as divisive. In my opinion, that's not the way to defeat that. It's not the way to beat it.feedback

Kevin Kruse

Jeff Flake's rhetoric echoed Margaret Chase Smith's condemnation of her fellow Republican. Without action, it'll prove empty.feedback

Bob Corker

I want to support these efforts that are underway. The president undermines our Secretary of State, raises tensions in the area by virtue of the tweets that he sends out. And I would just like for him to leave it to the professionals for a while and see if we can do something that's constructive for our country, the region and the world.feedback

Kevin Brady

I do expect to reach an agreement with our high tax lawmakers because I think it's vitally important that we help Americans keep more of what they earn regardless of what they live.feedback

Sen. Jeff Flake’s dramatic stand against President Trump continues with a piece in The Post that lays out his indictment, in a tone that aspires to catapult this confrontation into the ranks of other moments of world-historical grandeur and weightiness. Flake (R-Ariz.) invokes Joseph Welch’s famous clash with Sen. Joseph McCarthy — “have you no sense of decency, sir?” — and though Flake doesn’t compare himself to Welch, he hopes to precipitate the kind of moral awakening about the degradation of Trumpism that followed from Welch’s similar j’accuse moment.feedback

Chuck Schumer

It's absurd. No one believes Steven Mnuchin. He has lost his credibility because of statements like that. Wall Street was going up at a dramatic rate before the president even took office, and it's doing fine now, because the economy's doing well, because corporate profits are way up. We thought we had a deal and no wall. We'd do border security. The right wing starts killing him. Laura Ingraham says impeach him. And I think Breitbart called him Amnesty Trump. So he backs right off. Same thing just happened on health care.feedback

Jeff Flake

Were the shoe on the other foot, would we Republicans meekly accept such behavior on display from dominant Democrats? Of course not, and we would be wrong if we did.feedback

Nikki Haley

When you tell him the stories and you tell him what people think, he wants to be helpful, he wants to be someone who brings peace.feedback

Jeff Flake

It's tough. I'm competitive, I like to fight these battles. But I also know that I couldn't run the kind of race that I would be proud of and win in a Republican primary at this time. The politics in that way has changed. You can be conservative on policy and it doesn't matter it seems as much as being with the president or not criticizing him, even if you think he's wrong.feedback

Jeff Flake

I could not win in a Republican primary. That's the bottom line. It's not that you just have to meet with the president on policy. You cannot question the president and still be a good Republican.feedback

Jeff Flake

I think we've hit the tipping point. At some point, just the weight of it just causes people to change and to say, I can't take this anymore.' I hope that we've reached that point.feedback

Thousands of refugees are being admitted with no way to screen them and are instantly made eligible for welfare and free health care, even as our own veterans, our great, great veterans, die while they're waiting online for medical care that they desperately need.feedback

What the president can do is essentially provide air cover for Congress. President Trump seems to be doing the opposite of that. Instead of providing air cover, he's dropping bombs.feedback

It's possible all we see at the end of the day is a temporary tax cut. But it's clear a number of Republicans are still looking for something more than that.feedback
