Last quote by Marco Rubio

Ultimately, leaving the nuclear deal, reimposing suspended sanctions, and having the president impose additional sanctions would serve our national interest better than a decertified deal that leaves sanctions suspended or a new law that leaves major flaws in that agreement in place.feedback

Oct 07 2017

I still would rather have him be president than Hillary Clinton, to be frank. And that was the choice before America in November.feedback

Oct 07 2017

It is true that experience generally makes you better at something, not worse. And so the longer you're in some place, to a certain extent, the better you can be at it. So I am certainly a better senator today than I was five years ago simply because I'm more familiar with the process. It also doesn't hurt to have your party in the White House with a lot of people over there that I know.feedback

Oct 07 2017

We just have more time than we perhaps didn't have the last couple of years when I ran for president.feedback

Oct 07 2017

I want to be the best senator I can be – the best senator Florida has ever had. That's obviously a lofty goal, and there will be plenty of people to argue that I didn't achieve it no matter what I do.feedback

Oct 07 2017

The problem, is that the model that works in Florida and in Texas doesn't work as well in Puerto Rico for a lot of reasons: the geographic isolation, the pre-existing challenges and the fact that they had just previously been impacted by a storm. Politics is verbal combat. And in the process of a campaign, which is a competitive environment, people are going to bump up against each other. We were competitors. But I never felt we had a negative interaction.feedback

Oct 04 2017

We certainly want to learn more details on what occurred in Las Vegas, and if there are vulnerabilities in federal law that we should be addressing to prevent such attacks in the future, we would always be open to that.feedback

Oct 01 2017

Every minute we spend in the political realm bickering with one another over who's doing what, or who's wrong, or who didn't do right is a minute of energy and time that we're not spending trying to get the response right.feedback

Sep 29 2017

So Castro regime allows attacks on Americans forcing us to drawdown to keep them safe but he gets to keep about same # of people here? Make America great again one brain injury at a time.feedback

Sep 29 2017

Any reduction of Americans from @USEmbassyHavana should also require equal number of Castro employees leaving regime's embassy in U.S.feedback

Sep 29 2017

I'm arguing that at least when it comes to logistics the federal government is going to have to lead, and they're going to have to put someone there with the authority to make these decisions and execute on them fairly quickly.feedback

Sep 28 2017

The only dynamic that will shift this is a significant upsurge in the military presence, it is the only organization in the world able to appear on scene and deal with these logistical challenges.feedback

Sep 28 2017

The supply chain in Puerto Rico is broken. It's not just broken it is shattered.feedback

Sep 28 2017

I have and continue to encourage the White House through formal and informal channels to step up the DOD engagement as the lead agency. It's one thing to have someone in charge of the military response, another thing is to have someone in charge of the military response with the authority to make decisions.feedback

Sep 25 2017

Our commitment is to make sure that Puerto Rico will recover stronger than ever.feedback

Sep 12 2017 - Trump Presidency

I didn't like what it reflected on me. It embarrassed my family. It's not who I am.feedback

Sep 12 2017

You can't wait until two hours before it hits to tell people to move. I don't know how else to talk about a Category 4 hurricane that's about to hit multiple metropolitan areas.feedback

Sep 11 2017

You can't hide from the water. That's our biggest fear.feedback

Sep 10 2017

About the only good news in this whole endeavor is that it does provide funding for FEMA, and it does those sorts of things I've talked about until December, which hopefully gives us time to go about doing it the right way.feedback

Sep 10 2017

I know our local officials have been working hard to move people. The problem we have is there's nowhere to move. The whole state is being impacted by this.feedback

Sep 09 2017

You can't play chicken with this thing or try to outrun the storm. The last thing you want to be is out there, on the road, trying to get away from the storm, as this thing is zig-zagging around.feedback

Sep 05 2017 - NASA

It's the one federal mission which has largely been free of politics and it's at a critical juncture in its history. I would hate to see an administrator held up – on [grounds of] partisanship, political arguments, past votes, or statements made in the past – because the agency can't afford it and it can't afford the controversy.feedback

Aug 17 2017 - Ku Klux Klan

Mr. President, you can't allow white supremacists to share only part of blame. They support idea which cost nation & world so much pain.feedback

Aug 17 2017

The political prosecutions and resentencing of these young people is shameful and further evidence that Hong Kong's cherished autonomy is precipitously eroding.feedback

Aug 17 2017 - China

Joshua Wong, Nathan Law, Alex Chow and other umbrella movement protesters are pro-democracy champions worthy of admiration, not criminals deserving jail time. Beijing's heavy hand is on display for all to see as they attempt to crush the next generation of Hong Kong's pro-democracy movement.feedback

Aug 16 2017

Mr. President, you can't allow white supremacists to share only part of blame.feedback

Aug 13 2017

Very important for the nation to hear @potus describe events in #Charlottesville for what they are, a terror attack by #whitesupremacists.feedback

Aug 12 2017 - Twitter

Can't ignore them, but also don't give them relevance they crave. Only way they win is if they can turn the rest of us against each other.feedback

Aug 09 2017 - Sanctions

I support the president sanctioning these corrupt Maduro regime officials. The time has now come for the president to act on his promise to impose significant economic sanctions on the illegitimate Maduro dictatorship.feedback

Jul 28 2017 - Sanctions

What unifies us today in this cause isn't interference in another country's affairs, but support for its people.feedback

Jul 28 2017 - Sanctions

There is high-level engagement throughout this administration on this issue.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Venezuela

How truly tragic it would be for one of the richest countries in the world … and one of most Democratic societies in the hemisphere to become Cuba … a place that millions of families have been forced to flee, just so they can feed their family and speak their mind.feedback

Jul 20 2017 - Venezuela

How tragic would it be if on July 30 of this month that constitutional order was overthrown and what would take it's place is no less than a Cuban style government? It is not an exaggeration to say that. They are basically taking the the Cuban model of government and imposing it on Venezuela.feedback

Jul 19 2017 - Trumpcare

Well, I just want to be fair to the president, he was told by numerous people let the Senate work it out and then, you know, you can come in at the end and help to close it, and he followed that advice and it didn't work out.feedback

Jul 19 2017

I opposed Loretta Lynch's nomination because of her failure to identify any limit on the president's ability to ignore the laws passed by Congress as well as her obvious enthusiasm for civil asset forfeiture, which can deprive innocent people of their property rights without due process.feedback

Jul 18 2017

This is the Senate. Leadership sets the agenda, but senators vote in the interests of their states. Republics are certainly interesting systems of government, but certainly better than dictatorship.feedback

Jul 18 2017

The flip side is it's very difficult to do big things without the involvement of the president. So it's kind of a Catch-22.feedback

Jul 18 2017

Let us work through the process and allow it to work its way through the system, and then you can come in at the end and close it. That's the advice he took. The bottom line is there are members here who understood the president's preference and were willing to vote against it anyway.feedback

Jul 13 2017 - Obamacare

I just think the tax provisions could ultimately be dealt with in tax reform. I don't support those taxes, I'd like to see them come out, but I think they can come out as part of tax reform it doesn't have to be as part of the Obamacare debate.feedback

Jul 09 2017 - Chemical weapons

Partnering with Putin on a 'Cyber Security Unit' is akin to partnering with Assad on a 'Chemical Weapons Unit.feedback

Jul 06 2017 - Twitter

The best thing for the President and for America is for there to be a full and thorough investigation.feedback

Jul 06 2017 - Twitter

If a wise person disputes with a fool, there is railing and ridicule but no resolution. Proverbs 29:9. Just left Intel comm & informed meeting 2day with @IvankaTrump blowing up Twitter over alleged failed hug! Investigating. Will respond soon.feedback

Jun 30 2017 - Human Rights

Looking ahead to the remaining 30 years of 'one country, two systems,' we cannot allow Hong Kong to go the way of Beijing's failed authoritarianism.feedback

Jun 27 2017 - Trump Presidency

Even with the news today that Dr Liu has been released from prison for medical treatment, serious questions remain.feedback

Jun 22 2017 - Trump Presidency

I think the president has played the media like a fiddle for two and a half years.feedback

Jun 21 2017

It wasn't a hug. But that's fine. We stand by the investigation.feedback

Jun 20 2017 - American politics

There's a growing desire in the Republican conference in the Senate and House to address the fundamental fact that there are people in America who have decided they can't afford to have children because they can't get a month off of work and not get paid.feedback

Jun 20 2017 - American politics

If we're going to do tax reform and we should, there should be a discussion and hopefully action on how the tax code can strengthen the family, particularly working families who are struggling with the increased cost of everything.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - Trump Presidency

I don't believe it's going to happen. ''The best thing that could happen for the president, and the country, is a full and credible investigation.feedback

Jun 18 2017 - Republican Party

The Senate is not a place where you can just cook up something behind closed doors and rush it for a vote. So the first step in this may be crafted among a small group of people, but then everyone's going to get to weigh in.feedback

Jun 18 2017 - Republican Party

It is going to take days and weeks to work through that in the Senate.feedback

Jun 18 2017 - Trump Presidency

I don't believe it's going to happen. ''The best thing that could happen for the president, and the country, is a full and credible investigation. I really, truly believe that. If we want to put all this behind us, let's find out what happened, let's put it out there, and let's not undermine the credibility of the investigation.feedback

Jun 18 2017

This is is going to move forward. We are going to get the full truth out there. I believe this is the thing that could happen for the president.feedback

Jun 16 2017 - American politics

A year and a half ago a president, an American president landed in Havana to outstretch his hand to a regime. Today, a new president lands in Miami to reach out his hand to the people of Cuba.feedback

Jun 16 2017

The policy centers on the belief that the oppressed Cuban people – rather than the oppressive Castro regime's military and its subsidiaries – should benefit from American engagement with the island. This will be the first time in several decades that the Cuban people will have an economic advantage over the Cuban military.feedback

Jun 14 2017 - Trump Presidency

Is a narco-terrorist tyranny, and we know President Trump understands this.feedback

Jun 11 2017

I encourage all voters on the island to participate in this plebiscite to communicate the will of the people to local and national leaders.feedback

Jun 09 2017

My hope is that there are people in the White House that advise the president about what's appropriate and what isn't when you're interacting with the FBI. It's not clear why that didn't happen sooner, and it was a disservice to the president.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Trump Presidency

That is the fundamental question that people are seeking to answer.feedback

Jun 09 2017 - Trump Presidency

I think it boils down to this – is this the action of someone putting together a plan to impede an investigation? Or is this a non-politician, unconventional figure, who simply operates in ways that are different from previous presidents? And no one has either informed him, or he's been unwilling to be informed about why the kinds of requests that he made would be inappropriate.feedback

Jun 08 2017

Did you perceive that to be a statement that, I took care of you, I didn't do something because you told me he was a good guy, so now, you know, I'm asking you for something potentially in return.' Was that how you perceived it?feedback

Jun 08 2017 - Trump Presidency

I've spoken to the president of the United States personally on three occasions. I think without a doubt there will be changes in US-Cuba policy.feedback

Jun 08 2017

We are nation of laws, and we are going to follow those laws.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Fiat Chrysler

Director Coats, with the incredible respect I have for you, I am not asking for classified information. I am asking whether or not you have ever been asked by anyone to influence an ongoing investigation.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Russia

If what is being said to the media is untrue, then it is unfair to the president of the United States. And if it is true, then it is something the American people deserve to know, and we, as an oversight committee, need to know in order to conduct our job.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - Trump Presidency

This is not a punitive measure. The VA must be properly managed. . . . It has become clear that [it] is often unwilling or unable to hold individuals accountable for their actions or misdeeds.feedback

Jun 06 2017

The overwhelming majority of the people who work at the VA are good, hard-working employees who serve our veterans well. But it has become clear under the current law the VA is often unwilling or unable to hold individuals appropriately accountable for their actions and misdeeds. To shield employees from consequences brings down the entire department, it demoralizes the workforce and undermines the core mission of the VA.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Trump Presidency

I am confident the President will keep his commitment on Cuba policy by making changes that are targeted and strategic and which advance the Cuban people's aspirations for economic and political liberty.feedback

May 29 2017 - Trump Presidency

Well, I don't know if it's a level of comfort. I think it's a level of the fact that we are a nation of laws, and we have institutions, and irrespective of people's political views, those laws and those rules are going to be followed.feedback

May 25 2017 - Sanctions

This is not a sanctions bill, though many of us wish it were. This is a defensive measure.feedback

May 22 2017

The American public deserves to know the answers. Did he keep these memos? What do those memos say? And why did he write it? And how did he feel? Did he ever feel like he was being put in a position where he couldn't do his job? There's no doubt that that's the questions that are going to get asked, and asked repeatedly. This cloud is impacting everything else. People got what they voted for.feedback

May 21 2017

If any president tries to impede an investigation – any president, no matter who it is – by interfering with the FBI, yes, that would be problematic. That would be not just problematic, it would be obviously a potential obstruction of justice that people have to make a decision on.feedback

May 18 2017

We have two very different missions. Our investigation is a counterintelligence one. Their's obviously is a different realm in the Justice Department, so I'm not concerned that it would impede.feedback

May 17 2017

I wouldn't put much credibility on to whatever Putin's notes are.feedback

May 17 2017

I think everyone, Republicans and some – many – Democrats need to know more about exactly what transpired.feedback

May 16 2017 - American politics

Certainly it's less than ideal, but it is what it is. These were important allegations that were made, but I need to know the truth.feedback

May 12 2017

We should be able to walk, chew gum and confirm an FBI director at the same time.feedback

Apr 26 2017 - Immigration

I'm not an interpreter – you've got to ask them what they mean. I mean, that's their initiative, obviously. I take it he's taking about border security in general.feedback

Apr 23 2017 - Mexico

I think that's a fight worth having and a conversation and a debate worth having for 2018.feedback

Apr 23 2017

We cannot shut down the government right now. The last thing we can afford is to send a message to the world that the United States government, by the way, is only partially functioning.feedback

Apr 21 2017

While a waiver to allow business with prohibited Russian entities may be in Exxon-Mobil's interest, it would clearly not be in America's national security interest.feedback

Apr 12 2017

I don't think it's a secret that I disagreed with many of the decisions made by the Obama administration on foreign policy, but that presidency's over. We have a new presidency.feedback

Apr 09 2017 - Syria conflict

This idea that we're going to get rid of ISIS and then we'll hopefully use Assad and others to come up with a solution. It's not going to work. There seems to be a difference between what Ambassador Haley is saying, and what she said last night that Assad really has no future, and what I heard this morning from Secretary Tillerson. You cannot have a stable Syria without jihadist elements on the ground with Bashar al-Assad in power.feedback

Apr 07 2017

I think the time has come for some of these countries to be worried about us a little bit, not us always worried about what they might do.feedback

Apr 07 2017

We need to now move forward through a combination of diplomacy and, quite frankly, the support of groups on ground, particularly non-jihadist Sunni groups, to create alternatives to the Assad regime.feedback

Apr 07 2017 - Syria conflict

I don't think it's a coincidence that a few days later we see this.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Republican Party

Tonight's actions show the days of being able to attack with impunity when it comes to Assad are over.feedback

Apr 06 2017 - Syria conflict

I think this is an important, decisive step that was taken. It is a degrading of the capability of the Syrian regime to carry out further chemical attacks against innocent civilians. This will degrade their capability to launch those attacks from the air, and I think it was an important step, and hopefully it's part of a comprehensive strategy.feedback

Apr 05 2017 - Republican Party

If you're Bashar al Assad and they're basically sending you a signal that in the end, they just want you to finish this war quickly…that is, in my view, something that would encourage him to do something like what we've just seen. So I personally do not believe it's coincidental.feedback

Mar 31 2017

Think of the trauma that would do to this country.feedback

Mar 30 2017

Venezuela's democracy has been on life support for years now, but the decision to shut down the country's legislative body confirms our worst fears; Maduro is an unhinged dictator who has systematically dismantled democracy in this country.feedback

Mar 28 2017

Ultimately I'm not sure that's the direction the Appropriations Committee is going to move.feedback

Mar 27 2017 - Republican Party

That would get insurance companies back in the game.feedback

Mar 22 2017

For 1st time in a long time @StateDept #humanrights report will not be presented by Secretary of State. I hope they reconsider.feedback

Mar 16 2017

The administration's budget isn't going to be the budget. We do the budget here. The administration makes recommendations, but Congress does budgets.feedback

Mar 16 2017 - Mexican wall

I believe a border wall is part of our security needs, but that alone isn't going to achieve the goal.feedback

Mar 16 2017

You know what they say about men with small hands. You can't trust them.feedback

Mar 14 2017

I think people can disagree on policy, but you've got to be very careful about that kind of thing because the wrong person sees that and gets the wrong idea you could have a real problem.feedback

Mar 09 2017 - Obamacare

Just yesterday, the Congressional Budget Office found that Obamacare will cost millions of Americans their jobs.feedback

Mar 09 2017

I think if that's the approach they take, they won't have the votes in the Senate.feedback

Mar 09 2017

I want to make sure Florida is treated fairly.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - Wiretapping

Suffice it to say I don't have any basis – I've never heard that allegation made before by anybody. I've never seen anything about that anywhere before.feedback

Mar 06 2017

The president put that out there, and now the White House will have to answer as to exactly what he was referring to.feedback

Mar 06 2017 - Watergate

I have no insight into exactly what he (Mr Trump) is referring to. The president put that out there, and now the White House will have to answer for exactly what he was referring to. What I think we should do is, everybody needs to take a deep breath and calm down here.feedback

Mar 05 2017

Look, I didn't make the allegation. I'm not the person that went out there and said it.feedback

Mar 05 2017

A lot of this outrage that's out there is because Donald Trump is doing what Donald Trump said he was going to do if he was elected.feedback

Mar 05 2017 - Wiretapping

Suffice it to say I don't have any basis, I've never heard that allegation made before by anybody. I've never seen anything about that anywhere before. But again, the president put that out there, and now the White House will have to answer as to exactly what he was referring to.feedback

Mar 04 2017

Foreign Aid is not charity. We must make sure it is well spent, but it is less than 1% of budget & critical to our national security.feedback

Mar 03 2017 - Democratic Party

We have had two presidents - a Republican and a Democrat - previous to the current president who thought they could do such a deal with Vladimir Putin.feedback

Mar 01 2017

There is no alternative for America in the world. If America decides to withdraw from the world, if America decides to step back ... what will replace it?feedback

Feb 15 2017

I want to hear what he has to say about that.feedback

Feb 14 2017 - U.S. National Security Adviser

I can tell you that the Senate Intelligence Committee is conducting a bipartisan investigation, as we should, on Russian interference on our election and post-election and we're going to go wherever the truth leads us.feedback

Feb 06 2017 - Ukraine Crisis

Only reason we should ever lift sanctions on #Putin is if he meets conditions of sanctions & ends violations of #ukraine sovereignty.feedback

Jan 30 2017

My staff was told the State Department as of today was ordered not to talk to Congress about this issue. I don't know the reason, maybe perhaps they're still kind of working through how this is going to apply and so perhaps they don't want to give us information that is wrong. Not just with Congress, Look, I believe it was a mistake not to coordinate more closely with the agencies that were going to be tasked with implementing this and I would hope that had they have to do it again they would have approached it differently.feedback

Jan 30 2017

The manner in which these measures were crafted and implemented have greatly contributed to the confusion, anxiety and uncertainty of the last few days.feedback

Jan 23 2017

I hope he does become the best secretary of State. I also intend to hold him and roe broadly the entire department of state accountable.feedback

Jan 23 2017

Despite my reservations, I will support Mr. Tillerson's nomination in committee and in the full Senate.feedback

Jan 23 2017 - Russia

Despite his extensive experience in Russia and his personal relationship with many of its leaders, he claimed he did not have sufficient information to determine whether Putin and his cronies were responsible for ordering the murder of countless dissidents, journalists and political opponents. He indicated he would support sanctions on Putin for meddling in our elections only if they met the impossible condition that they not affect U.S. businesses operating in Russia. Despite my reservations, I will support Mr. Tillerson's nomination in committee and in the full Senate.feedback

Jan 11 2017 - Aleppo

Let me describe the situation in Aleppo [Syria], and perhaps that will help you reach that conclusion. In Aleppo, Mr. Putin has directed his military to conduct a devastating campaign.feedback

Dec 13 2016

The next secretary of state must be someone who views the world with moral clarity, is free of potential conflicts of interest, has a clear sense of America's interests, and will be a forceful advocate for America's foreign policy goals to the president, within the administration, and on the world stage. I look forward to learning more about his record and his views.feedback

Dec 13 2016

While Rex Tillerson is a respected businessman, I have serious concerns about his nomination. The next secretary of state must be someone who views the world with moral clarity, is free of potential conflicts of interest, has a clear sense of America's interests, and will be a forceful advocate for America's foreign policy goals. I will do my part to ensure he receives a full and fair but also thorough hearing.feedback

Dec 13 2016

Being a 'friend of Vladimir' is not an attribute I am hoping for from a Secretary of State.feedback

Dec 12 2016

Being a 'friend of Vladimir' is not an attribute I am hoping for from a (hashtag)SecretaryOfState.feedback

Dec 08 2016

It is my hope that this new administration will appoint an ambassador to China that reflects these priorities, not simply someone who is going there to catch up with old friends.feedback

Nov 27 2016 - Liberty Party of Canada

Is this a real statement or parody? Because if this is a real statement from the PM of Canada it is shameful and embarrassing.feedback

Nov 27 2016

We should examine our policy toward Cuba through those lenses. And if there's a policy that helps that, it remains in place. And if it's a policy that doesn't, it's removed.feedback

Nov 27 2016

While you may want to open up to Cuba, there is no reason why we should be opening up to Fidel Castro's legacy: of anti-Americanism, of murder, of dictatorship, of imprisonment, of exile, which is what his legacy's all about.feedback

Nov 26 2016 - Human Rights

The Future of Cuba ultimately remains in the hands of the Cuban people, and now more than ever Congress and the new administration must stand with them against their brutal rules and support their struggle for freedom and basic human rights.feedback

Oct 11 2016

I wish we had better choices for President. But I do not want Hillary Clinton to be our next President. And therefore my position has not changed.feedback

Oct 01 2016

The reason why someone exaggerates their achievements is because they don't have any achievements. He's been in Congress for four years and no one's noticed because he hasn't done anything.feedback

Aug 15 2016

We can all agree that these Olympians who dedicate their lives to athletic excellence should not be punished when they achieve it.feedback

Aug 09 2016 - Zika

Congress needs to come back and get something done, actually pass a bill that has more money. ...So that's why I am calling for Congress to go back this month and get it done quickly.feedback

Aug 04 2016 - Zika

Why are they holding that money back?feedback

Aug 03 2016 - Zika

Now, I don't like to ascribe motives, but in this case, I have to start wondering whether they are holding back on spending that federal money because they like making this a political issue that they can attack Republicans on.feedback

Jul 21 2016

Unlike Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump is committed to cut taxes, curb spending and get our national debt under control.feedback

Jul 15 2016 - Zika

It's taken far too long already.feedback

Jul 01 2016

I have never sought, will not seek and do not want to be considered for vice president.feedback

Jun 29 2016

We're not going to let Puerto Rico go off a cliff here, it's too important.feedback

Jun 28 2016

It's a talking point that they want to take into the July Fourth recess, unfortunately.feedback

Jun 23 2016

I have no illusions about how tough this race will be. It's Florida in a presidential election year and a very unusual presidential election year, so it will be a tough race and I'm prepared for that.feedback

Jun 22 2016 - Supreme Court

Control of the Senate may very well come down to the race in Florida. The outcome also could determine the makeup of the Supreme Court and critical fiscal and economic policies. No matter who is elected president, there is reason for worry.feedback

Jun 06 2016 - Republican Party

I ran for president and I warned this was going to happen.feedback

Jun 01 2016

It was targeted at people that were struggling.feedback

Jun 01 2016

What he did to them is what he's doing to voters now.feedback

May 12 2016

This is going to be an ongoing issue beyond this year. We need to jump on it now. For the first time, I've seen high-level conversations about a way forward here in the Senate and that's a positive development.feedback

Mar 16 2016

While it is not god's plan that I be president in 2016 – or maybe ever – and while today my campaign is suspended, the fact that I've even come this far is evidence of how special America truly is, and all the reason more why we must do all we can to ensure that this nation remains a special place. I ask the American people: Do not give into the fear, do not give into the frustration.feedback

Mar 15 2016

The only thing that's changed as a result of this opening is that now the Cuban government has more sources of money from which to build out their repressive apparatus.feedback

Mar 09 2016

It's not going to happen in six months or a year.feedback

Mar 09 2016 - Deportation
