Lindsey Graham quotes
Frankly I was worried about who he'd pick. Maybe somebody on TV.
Now the shoe is on the other foot.
If you believe this has been a great plan to get a Trump nominee on the court you had to believe Trump was going to win to begin with. I didn't believe it.
What happened between now and then, how did we go from being able to being able to understand that Scalia was a well-qualified conservative and [Judge Ruth Bader] Ginsberg was a well-qualified liberal? I don't know how we got there, but I hope we turn around and go back. Because what we're doing is going to tear apart the judiciary.
Single best thing the president's done.
It's dead on arrival.
Here's what I would prefer he do. If he can't get us in a good spot where we all feel comfortable, we've improved Obamacare dramatically, which we told people we would: Let it collapse. Democrats are not going to lift a finger to help President Trump. I would do collapse-and-replace if you can't get a good, solid fix to Obamacare using reconciliation.
It is mortally wounded.
The Congress needs to know what it's doing. If you're going to have multiple congressional investigations and there is a criminal investigation, we're going to run into it.
Congress is going to flex its muscles. I think the entire country needs to know if there's something there.
The longer it takes to answer that question the more suspicious I get.
Congress "is going to flex its muscle. We'll issue a subpoena to get the information, we'll hold up the deputy attorney general's nomination until Congress is provided with the information to finally clear the air as to whether there was ever a warrant issued against the Trump campaign.
I think the country wants to know if there's something there there.
I'm suspicious of it.
This is definitely dead on arrival.
I want to get to the bottom of it. The F.B.I. would know if a warrant was issued. They would know if a warrant was applied for. I want to answer that question.
I would be very worried if, in fact, the Obama administration was able to obtain a warrant lawfully about Trump campaign activity with a foreign government.
I'm very worried that our president is suggesting that the former president has done something illegally.
I think Donald Trump has an ability to solve the problem unlike anybody in recent times. We always pass the bill in the Senate like 68 votes. It goes to the House. My Republican colleagues in the House -- it always dies. I think Trump has the ability to tell the right, you know, this is a good deal, take it.
Somebody other than Jeff needs to do it.
If there is something there and it goes up the chain of investigation, it is clear to me that Jeff Sessions, who is my dear friend, cannot make that decision about Trump.
I have full confidence in Jeff Sessions serving as Attorney General.
I think it it is now time for the Congress to take Iran on directly in terms of what they've done outside the nuclear programme.
I think it is now time for the Congress to take Iran on directly in terms of what they've done outside the nuclear program. Iran is a bad actor in the greatest sense of the word when it comes to the region. To Iran, I say, if you want us to treat you differently then stop building missiles, test-firing them in defiance of U.N. resolution and writing 'Death to Israel' on the missile. That's a mixed message.
I believe he is the right guy at the right time. He'll be Trump's voice. Trump won the election.
I think most Americans have a right to know whether or not this was a General Flynn rogue maneuver, or was he basically speaking for somebody else in the White House.
The one-president-at-a-time policy I think has served the country well. The idea that (Flynn) did this on his own without any direction is a good question to ask.
Russia has done nothing to be rewarded with sanctions relief. To provide relief at this time would send the wrong signal to Russia and our allies who face Russian oppression.
You can't lose the election and expect to have the government represent what you think we should be doing.
Judge Gorsuch is probably the best pick he could have made.
He's going to get confirmed. It's just a matter of when and how.
It'd be sad to me if we have to go that route with a man like this. But he's going to get confirmed.
We fear this executive order will become a self-inflicted wound in the fight against terrorism.
Any policy proposal which drives up costs of Corona, tequila or margaritas is a big-time bad idea.
To continue to suggest that the 2016 election was conducted in a fashion that millions of people voted illegally undermines faith in our democracy.
As a matter of fact I'd like you to do more than stop saying it. I'd like you to come forward and say having looked at it I am confident the election was fair and accurate and people who voted voted legally. Cause if he doesn't do that, this is going to undermine his ability to govern this country.
Though we still have concerns about his past dealings with the Russian government and President Vladimir Putin, we believe that Mr. Tillerson can be an effective advocate for U.S. interests.
Bottom line is, if you don't want to do anything about what Russia did, if you don't believe they're a good candidate for additional sanctions, I think a lot of people are going to look at you as not having the judgment for the job.
He's going to be the defender of the free world here pretty soon. All I'm asking him is to acknowledge that Russia interfered, and push back. It could be Iran next time. It could be China.
Even though it didn't affect the outcome, they tried to interfere. And they need to pay a price.
Israel is always the bad guy in the eyes of the United Nations.
When you compromise one political party, you compromise all political parties.
So 2017 is a year of offence and we're going to tell our colleagues what's at stake if we don't push back.
We intend to lead the effort in the new Congress to impose stronger sanctions on Russia.
I predict there will be bipartisan sanctions coming that will hit Russia hard, particularly (President Vladimir) Putin as an individual.
I think the sanctions need to go beyond what it is today, they need to name Putin as an individual and his inner circle because nothing happens in Russia without his knowledge and approval.
You can expect that the Congress will investigate the Russian involvement in our elections and there will be bipartisan sanctions coming that will hit Russia hard, particularly Putin as an individual.
It is now time for Russia to understand – enough is enough.
Price "has been the heart and soul of the Republican alternative to Obamacare. I can't imagine any Republican voting against him.
I'd vote for him. I like Jeff. He was the early, only supporter for Donald Trump in the Senate. And I believe Jeff Sessions has earned the right to serve President Trump in the highest levels, and I think he's a good, competent, capable man.
They are a bad actor in the world, they need to be reined in.
All Americans should follow her counsel and try to work with our next president.
Trump "will need all the help he can get given the many challenges we face as a nation.
The story of this election may be the mobilization of the Hispanic vote. So Trump deserves the award for Hispanic turnout. He did more to get them out than any Democrat has ever done.
If you want to lose Saudi Arabia as an ally, be careful what you wish for. They're the heart and soul of the Islamic world.
Now is not the time to say that we're going to nickel and dime Israel.
I'm, like, ahead of my time.
They left money on the table.
I will not stand for that.
Unacceptable' doesn't even begin to describe it.
Eventually this problem will get addressed again one of two ways: We find a breakthrough, which I will seek, or there will be another terrorist attack which will bring us right back to this issue. I hope we can do it without another terrorist attack.
If we can't pass this, it truly is a broken system up here.
Mr. Trump seems to be suggesting that the president is one of them, I find that highly offensive, I find that whole line of reasoning way off-base. Mr. Trump's reaction to declare war on the faith is the worst possible solution.
We have become, actually, good friends. And that was a surprise to both of us.
It's pretty clear to me that he's playing the race card. Trump is trying to ruin Curiel's life.
It's hard to believe that in a nation of more than 300 million Americans Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will be our choices for president. My position remains the same regarding both candidates running for president. I will do what I can in the Senate to help the next president. The next president will inherit a mess.
The businessman's speech was "pathetic in terms of understanding the role America plays in the world.
It's isolationism surrounded by disconnected thought, demonstrates lack of understanding threats we face. Not sure who is advising Trump on foreign policy but I can understand why he's not revealing their names.
I told the White House I'd be supportive of a supplemental if they could show me where the money goes and what it could do.
Our hope is that the Egyptian government can prove to the international community that they're sincerely responding to legitimate concerns while at the same time trying to maintain security.
The Congress is going to be around no matter who is president. All of us, regardless of what Mr. Trump says or does, we are going to keep being who we are, so don't let the political scenes at home get you too upset. That's what I told the president.
If we give the banner of the Republican party to Donald Trump, we tarnish it maybe forever. That might be the end of the Republican party as I know it.
It's an odd alliance, but it's an alliance I feel comfortable with given my choices.
While he has condemned Cruz's tactics and behaviors in the past, he is strategically the best alternative to stop Trump. He's certainly not my preference, Sen. Cruz is not. But he is a reliable Republican conservative which I've had many differences with. I doubt Donald Trump's conservative and I think he'd be a disaster for the party.
I can't believe I would say yes, but yes.
Donald Trump is not a conservative, so I don't trust him to pick a judge.
I have concluded without any hesitation, any doubt, that Jeb Bush is worthy to be commanderinchief on day one.
Jeb Bush is going to be a nominee that can win an election that as a party we can't afford to lose. He will be the president that can reset the world, bring us together and solve hard problems.
The world is crazy right now. That's what this guy was. A crazy guy. Not in terms of being mentally incompetent – just being mean and hateful and crazy. I can't explain it.
