James Mattis - US Marine Corps
I'm very comfortable that the strategic process was sufficiently rigorous, and did not go in with a preset condition in terms of what questions could be asked and what decisions could be made. Everyone who had equity was heard.feedback

All quotes about Trump Presidency

Donald J. Trump

Kim Jong Un of North Korea made a very wise and well reasoned decision. The alternative would have been both catastrophic and unacceptable!feedback

Donald J. Trump

I want to thank Steve Bannon for his service. He came to the campaign during my run against Crooked Hillary Clinton - it was great! Thanks S.feedback

Chun Yung-woo

North Korea will judge U.S. intentions on the basis of U.S. actions, not just empty words. Kim Jong Un doesn't believe that Trump is serious when he talks about the military option.feedback

Richard Moss

It won't have the same weight as if we were issuing it as a federal advisory committee.feedback

Carl Icahn

I never had a formal position with your administration nor a policymaking role. And contrary to the insinuations of a handful of your Democratic critics, I never had access to nonpublic information or profited from my position, nor do I believe that my role presented conflicts of interest.feedback

Carl Icahn

Indeed, out of an abundance of caution, the only issues I ever discussed with you were broad matters of policy affecting the refining industry. I never sought any special benefit for any company with which I have been involved, and have only expressed views that I believed would benefit the refining industry as a whole.feedback

Jesse Lynn - Icahn Enterprises

Mr. Icahn is well aware of his obligations under the law generally and with respect to 18 U.S.C. 208 specifically. He will follow the law as he always has.feedback

Carl Icahn

I believe that in the EPA, concerning regulations relative to refineries, you really need to roll back almost yesterday. As far as I'm concerned, I don't have any specific duties. What I'm going to be doing is basically talk to Donald as I've talked before.feedback

Carl Icahn

If you look at the EPA, which I've talked about quite a bit, there is nothing more absurd – and I've talked about this before – than this regulation concerning the obligated party, being refineries.feedback

Norman Eisen

It appears that he may end up as a de facto special government employee. As such, he would be subject to the conflicts rules, including under 18 USC 208. If so, that would make him potentially criminally liable if he worked on a repeal of the ethanol mandate that would boost CVR's stock price and enrich him. Of course, that's a lot of ifs, and we have to see what his actual conduct is.feedback

Haskel Lookstein

We condemn the monstrous act of murder that took the life of Heather Heyer. We are appalled by this resurgence of bigotry and antisemitism and the renewed vigor of the neo-Nazis, KKK and alt-right. While we always avoid politics, we are deeply troubled by the moral equivalency and equivocation President Trump has offered in his response to this act of violence.feedback

Steven Mnuchin

Some of these issues are far more complicated than we are led to believe by the mass media, and if it were so simple, such actions would have been taken by other presidents, governors, and mayors, long before President Trump was elected by the American people. Our president deserves the opportunity to propose his agenda and to do so without the attempts by those who opposed him in the primaries, in the general election and beyond to distract the administration and the American people from these most important policy issues – jobs, economic growth, and national security.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio. He has done a lot in the fight against illegal immigration. He's a great American patriot and I hate to see what has happened to him.feedback

Richard Moss

It doesn't seem to be the best course of action. We're going to be running huge risks here and possibly end up hurting the next generation's economic prospects.feedback

Marcus Lemonis

There's no doubt that there is probably not many consumers in this country today that are in favor of what has been said in the last couple days – and if they are, frankly, don't shop at my business.feedback

Jim Warlick

This is difficult for us as a retailer to determine what to sell. That red cap has been the best cap we've ever had. Our families are so split in America that people buy for both sides. Either as a joke or to be nice.feedback

Jim Warlick

The passion for Obama, I've never seen anything like it. It never really slowed down, and then picked up in his last year.feedback

Fred Durham - CafePress

A lot of the topics are less about Trump and a lot more 'Trump won, deal with it'. It's a little rude, and more about the neighbors than it is about the candidate.feedback

Jim Warlick

They don't make public policy, and they're easier to like.feedback

Steve Bannon

The Trump presidency that we fought for, and won, is over. We still have a huge movement, and we will make something of this Trump presidency. But that presidency is over. It'll be something else.feedback

Denny Burk

They were morally bankrupt and completely unacceptable. People who protest while chanting Nazi slogans are not 'very fine people.feedback

Mike Huckabee

This is an attempt to discredit and ultimately dislodge Donald Trump from the White House.feedback

Donald J. Trump

And we are here to provide whatever other assistance is needed. We are ready, willing and able. Above all else, we must remember this truth: No matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first.feedback

Josh Green

Bannon sounded like he'd just consumed 40 Red Bulls. He's a tiger being let out of his cage. I think he'll still have Trump's ear. Bannon's great disappointment is that the White House hasn't been able to deliver on a lot of things they promised. In his view that is because people in the White House are inhibiting Trump. He wants to exert pressure from the outside and steer Trump back to the polices he ran on.feedback

Hugh Hewitt

If the White House can match its recent staff changes with a smart policy push, the coalition between it and the Capitol Hill GOP could come together again.feedback

Donald J. Trump

You look at both sides. I think there is blame on both sides ... and nobody wants to say that.feedback

Brian Wieser - Pivotal Research Group

James has to be mindful that the health of the overall enterprise is dependent on Fox News holding up.feedback

Brian Wieser - Pivotal Research Group

He is trying to straddle a recognition that there are a lot of problems out there, and whether Fox News has contributed to them or not, the problems exist. Even though James is technically the C.E.O., he's somewhere between can't and won't do anything that would cause changes to Fox News. This is a tricky divide.feedback

Bob Corker

This week was unbelievably horrible. It was a tragic week. But I don't think [Trump] changes.feedback

Al Franken

I've known for weeks that Trump is a terrible president. There are a number of Republican senators who have been saying from the beginning that they have a lot of doubts about him but won't go public with that because he still has 80-some percent of his base behind him, and that's their base. So politically, they're unwilling to go public. And there some people who said 'There's nothing good about neo-Nazis, etc.' but wouldn't blame Trump.feedback

Al Franken

Is that going to make a difference? The problem with this administration is Trump, and it's going to continue. We've heard this. When [Chief of Staff John] Kelly comes in, everything will be fine.' And boom, he threatens nuclear war.feedback

Lindsey Graham

If there's going to be a war to stop him [Kim Jong Un], it will be over there. If thousands die, they're going to die over there, they're not going to die here and he's [Trump] told me that to my face.feedback

Joel Pollak - Breitbart News Network

It may turn out to be the beginning of the end for the Trump administration, the moment Donald Trump became Arnold Schwarzenegger.feedback

David Rubenstein

The Kennedy Center respects the decision made today by the office of the President of the United States. In choosing not to participate in this year's Honors activities, the Administration has graciously signaled its respect for the Kennedy Center and ensures the Honors gala remains a deservingly special moment for the Honorees. We are grateful for this gesture.feedback

Sarah Sanders

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed Friday would be Steve's last day. We are grateful for his service and wish him the best.feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and Steve Bannon have mutually agreed today (Friday) would be Steve's last day, . We are grateful for his service and wish him the best.feedback

Jamie Dimon - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

It is a leader's role, in business or government, to bring people together, not tear them apart. Sad to see the history and culture of our great country being ripped apart with the removal of our beautiful statues and monuments.feedback

Benjy Sarlin - NBC News

President Donald Trump appeared to cite an apocryphal story about an American general executing dozens of Muslim prisoners in the Philippines and defiling their bodies with pig blood in the wake of a deadly terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, Thursday.feedback

Arnold Schwarzenegger

The only way to beat the loud and angry voices of hate is to meet them with louder and more reasonable voices. And that includes you, President Trump. In fact, as president of this great country, you have a moral responsibility to send an unequivocal message that you don't stand for hate and racism. As President of the United States, and as a Republican, I reject the support of white supremacists. The country that defeated Hitler's armies is no place for Nazi flags. The party of Lincoln won't stand with those who carry the battle flags of the failed Confederacy.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We've been there for now close to 17 years, and I want to find out why we've been there for 17 years, how it's going, and what we should do in terms of additional ideas. We'll see. We aren't winning. We are losing.feedback

Carlos Curbelo

Those who relish culture wars & celebrate political polarization have no place leading a country in profound need of healing & unity.feedback

John McCain

The recent attacks upon [McMaster] from the so-called 'alt-right' are disgraceful. Since this fringe movement cannot attract the support of decent Americans, it resorts to impugning the character of a good man and outstanding soldier who has served honorably in uniform and sacrificed more for our country than any of his detractors ever have. Such smear tactics should not be tolerated and deserve an emphatic response.feedback

Liz Lingafelter

All these shakeups mean is that Trump is doing his job. He's a businessman and is doing what's best for the organisation. I voted for Trump, not Bannon.feedback

Natalie Y Moore

Racial terror and violence are built into the fabric of the country – and Trump has given licence to white supremacy. In a time of severe political strife in America, a rare show of bipartisanship occurred in the aftermath of the white nationalist march in Charlottesville, Virginia. Democrats and Republicans alike denounced the white, tiki-torch-carrying racists while lambasting Donald Trump for his, at best, tepid remarks against the Nazi sympathisers.feedback

Ross Barkan

It doesn’t much matter if Bannon is canned. What matters, as always, is what Trump is actually doing – and what he still hopes to accomplish while in power. Steve Bannon’s departure from the White House is dominating all headlines and cable news coverage, as it was always fated to since the supposed Svengali of the chaos president first captivated the media last year. Bannon, the former (and future?) Breitbart mogul, was one of several Donald Trump acolytes singularly obsessed over, his status in Trumplandia an unending focus of journalistic firepower.feedback

Steve Bannon

Just give me more. Tear down more statues. Say the revolution is coming. I can't get enough of it. I think I can be more effective fighting from the outside for the agenda President Trump ran on. And anyone who stands in our way, we will go to war with.feedback

Theodore M. Shaw

It is only now, when racism is widely considered to be immoral, that racists argue moral equivalency in opposition to civil rights advocates. Donald Trump and what he said yesterday is regressive – it's looking backward, it's taking us back. This is extraordinary in ways that I think it's difficult for most Americans, as shocked as people of good will are, to really comprehend. This is someone who occupies the White House, who has no moral bottom when it comes to racism, and who has in many ways encouraged hatred and bigotry in his quest for power.feedback

Kevin Kruse

It's not identical in that those people in the '50s when they were talking about extremists on both sides, they were talking about NAACP activists asking that the South to comply with the Supreme Court's ruling of Brown v. Board of Education on the one hand and they equated that with Klan extremists and terrorists on the other hand. Whereas today, what Trump tried to do was say, Look, you've got the Klan but you've also got a few violent people in the anti-fascist movement and that's the totality of what the other side represents.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

You're born with a clean slate, with your personal integrity. No one can take it from you. Only you can relinquish it. And you express that integrity every day in so many actions that you may not even think about.feedback

Gregory Kline

People who see this stuff going down the memory hole as quickly as it is happening feel unsettled by it. The left doesn't realize that the reaction a lot of people would have is to sit back and say, Wait a minute, what's going on here?feedback

Yascha Mounk

It's now at a stage where a lot of Americans have such a loyalty to their political tribe that they are willing to go along with deeply undemocratic behavior. If their guy says, I think we should push back the election for a few years because of a possible terrorist attack,' I fear that a significant part of the population would go along with it.feedback

Larry Laughlin

The guys who wouldn't like me wouldn't like Trump. The guys who were condescending to him were condescending to me. I feel like I'm watching my uncle up there. Where me and Chuck Schumer – that's like going to the dentist.feedback

Gregory Kline

It's not that people are deaf and dumb and don't see it. It's that they don't care. I've heard rational people I really respect make the craziest apologies for this president because they are sick of getting beat on and they are happy he's fighting back.feedback

Michael Dye

At best it is naïve to think that the people showing up for the original protest were there simply because they were upset that this statue was being taken down. You can argue that it was 10 percent of the crowd. But there are those types in there and I've got a problem with that and I wish he'd specified that.feedback

John McIntosh

Anyone who was fair-minded could see that there was violence on both sides.feedback

Parson Hicks

This is not about me as a black person, and my history. This is about this president and wanting to take him down because you don't like him.feedback

Parson Hicks

Let's be honest, the people who are currently outraged are the same people who have always been outraged. The media makes it seem like something has changed, when in reality nothing has.feedback

David Brooks

I'm beginning to think the whole depressing spectacle of this moment – the Trump presidency and beyond – is caused by a breakdown of intellectual virtue, a breakdown in America's ability to face evidence objectively, to pay due respect to reality, to deal with complex and unpleasant truths.feedback

Kurt Bardella

In many ways, he'll have just as much or, at least over time, more influence on the outside than on the inside. As Trump continues to struggle … Steve will be all too ready and eager to be the Trump whisperer again.feedback

Ann Coulter

Media is the most powerful branch of government. Who will media decide Donald Trump has to fire next?feedback

Kristian Coates Ulrichsen

They felt they could do business with the Trump administration without any real focus on thorny issues such as human rights or questions of governance that have complicated bilateral ties with other presidencies in the past.feedback

David Axelrod

I don't think Bannon can have more influence on policy from the outside, whatever he does, simply because he won't be at the table to make the case when decisions are made. A lot depends on Trump. If Bannon and Breitbart are spinning him up, Trump may dial him up on a regular basis. That may give him leverage.feedback

Steve Bannon

Until somebody solves the part of the equation that shows me that ten million people in Seoul don't die in the first 30 minutes from conventional weapons, I don't know what you're talking about, there's no military solution here, they got us. These guys are a collection of clowns. We gotta help crush it.feedback

Gloria Estefan

Mr. President, as a proud immigrant of this country, it's very important for me that you see the wonderful contributions we have made.feedback

Sam Nunberg

Steve has a powerful voice, and he's going to keep that voice up. He's going to continue to promote policies that got Donald Trump in the White House. It's a sad day for the movement. I think it will end up being a mistake.feedback

Carl Icahn

I never had a formal position with your administration nor a policymaking role. And contrary to the insinuations of a handful of your Democratic critics, I never had access to nonpublic information or profited from my position, nor do I believe that my role presented conflicts of interest. It's time to break free of excessive regulation and let our entrepreneurs do what they do best: create jobs and support communities. President-elect Trump is serious about helping American families, and regulatory reform will be a critical component of making America work again.feedback

Marc Chandler - Brown Brothers Harriman

I think what people are concerned about is Trump being distracted from what they want, and that's his economic agenda. It's been eight months. He hasn't grown into the office, and he keeps going off the reservation.feedback

Ben Sasse

What will happen next? I doubt that Donald Trump will be able to calm and comfort the nation in that moment. He (and lots of others) will probably tell an awful combination of partial truths and outright falsehoods. On top of the trust deficits that are already baked so deeply in, unity will be very hard to come by.feedback

Terry Haines - Evercore ISI

Even though congressional Republicans are going to stay a bit farther away from Trump than they had before, and this was never really a marriage to begin with, they're still going to come together on things that matter, starting with tax reform.feedback

Carl Icahn

I sincerely regret that because of your extremely busy schedule, as well as my own, I have not had the opportunity to spend nearly as much time as I'd hoped on regulatory issues. I truly appreciate the confidence you have in me and sincerely hope that the limited insights I shared have been helpful to you. I love our country which has allowed me to achieve so much and I thank you for the informal opportunity you have given me to aid it.feedback

Ed Rensi

All of our citizens better wake up and get smart fast because this country is tearing itself apart. We must demand that the leaders in the House, the leaders in the Senate come together and support Trump and if they can't support him they need to be strong and tell him what they think he needs to do.feedback

Ed Rensi

They're not really so interested in you, me or this country as they are in self-preservation. He's very focused on what he thinks is right, not what you think is right, and he's going to have to learn how to listen. He doesn't listen very well, most of the time.feedback

Mitt Romney

Whether he intended to or not, what he communicated caused racists to rejoice, minorities to weep, and the vast heart of America to mourn. State forcefully and unequivocally that racists are 100% to blame for the murder and violence in Charlottesville. Testify that there is no conceivable comparison or moral equivalency between the Nazis – who brutally murdered millions of Jews and who hundreds of thousands of Americans gave their lives to defeat – and the counter-protestors who were outraged to see fools parading the Nazi flag, Nazi armband and Nazi salute.feedback

J. Bryant Evan - Cozad Asset Management

While this mini correction we're seeing may not amount to much, it's probably caused by this escalation in doubt of all of these things that seemed hopeful to investors at the beginning of the Trump administration.feedback

Johnnie Moore

I deeply respect and have always respected, Dr. Bernard. Sometimes, friends disagree & that doesn't change our commitment to our shared faith and friendship. We have every intention to continue to extend invitations to him to contribute his perspective on issues important to all of us.feedback

Greg Valliere

I suppose getting rid of Bannon might assuage some of the anger, but the problem is not Bannon. The problem is Trump.feedback

Marc Chandler - Brown Brothers Harriman

Within the government, Cohn is the voice of that [business] faction of the coalition. If Bannon's departure is a victory for the Cohn wing, that's one thing. It's going to take time to tell. Trump has just been going off the reservation, and that's not Bannon. I think this is trading on hope. The hope at least that Bannon was the bad apple in the barrel, and all it's going to take is another bad apple to pop up. Remember a lot's going on behind the scenes. The Russia investigation is continuing. This is just the latest drama.feedback

Gary Cohn

You're changing history, you're changing culture.feedback

Gary Cohn

George Washington was a slave-owner. Are we going to take down statues to George Washington? How about Thomas Jefferson?feedback

Barack Obama

It doesn't hurt to quit twice. Especially because I agree these colleagues.feedback

Joel Pollak - Breitbart News Network

I think there's a fear among conservatives that with Steve Bannon gone, essentially the Trump administration could become in all but name a Democratic administration. We'll see what happens, we'll see if that continues, we'll see if Trump can pull back a team of rivals that can work together to fulfill the agenda he was elected on and that's all I can really say.feedback

Joel Pollak - Breitbart News Network

We remain as we've always been: the outlet that represents the movement and the ideas that brought Trump to office. Whether he remains onboard with that agenda is now an open question with Steve Bannon's departure from the White House.feedback

Adam Pendleton

They're instruments of a political agenda and it would be real folly to suggest that there is any kind of ambiguity. Their artistic merit is irrelevant because it's beside the point. We don't think about who created the statue of Robert E. Lee and what her intentions were. We think about who and what Robert E. Lee signifies.feedback

Steve Bannon

This past election, the Democrats used every personal attack, including charges of racism, against President Trump. He then won a landslide victory on a straightforward platform of economic nationalism. As long as the Democrats fail to understand this, they will continue to lose. But leftist elites do not value history, so why would they learn from history?feedback

Nancy Pelosi

Steve Bannon's firing is welcome news, but it doesn't disguise where President Trump himself stands on white supremacists and the bigoted beliefs they advance. President Trump's growing record of repulsive statements is matched by his repulsive policies. Personnel changes are worthless so long as President Trump continues to advance policies that disgrace our cherished American values. The Trump Administration must not only purge itself of the remaining white supremacists on staff, but abandon the bigoted ideology that clearly governs its decisions.feedback

Greg Valliere

Fearful of losing their party, and losing the 2018 election, Republicans on Capitol Hill are nearing a consensus: it's time to go it alone, ignoring the dysfunctional White House and proceeding on legislation without input from President Trump. It's their only hope, and it could produce results.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late. I had already beaten all the senators and all the governors, and I didn't know Steve. I'm my own strategist, and it wasn't like I was going to change strategies because I was facing crooked Hillary.feedback

Adam Green

White supremacy is embedded within our society -- from the corridors of power in the White House to Wall Street banks that reinforce a rigged system to the everyday experiences of people of color. As Americans work together to address longer-term systemic issues, our new ad make clear that one firing is not enough: Donald Trump must fire Steve Bannon, Sebastian Gorka, Stephen Miller, and all the other white supremacists in the Trump Administration.feedback

Al Gore

What they are telling us now will happen in the future if we don't stop using the atmosphere as an open sewer includes the threat that human civilization itself will be in danger. What the scientists told us 20 years ago has come true.feedback

Jeff Richards - GGV Capital

Business leaders are being asked to step forward and try and set policy for our country. It's kind of an awkward situation overall.feedback

Jeff Richards - GGV Capital

We've never really seen this before. We've never seen the moral compass of our country placed in the hands of private business leaders. And I think one of the reasons you're seeing that is is because many of us would argue that our president is tending to go back and forth on various things.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

We will move this toward a decision. We are coming very close to a decision and I anticipate it in the very near future.feedback

Joel Pollak - Breitbart News Network

Steve Bannon personified the Trump agenda. With Bannon gone, there is no guarantee that Trump will stick to the plan. That is why – too late, in retrospect – conservative leaders wrote to the president Friday to advise him that Bannon and campaign manager-turned-counselor Kellyanne Conway were too valuable to lose.feedback

Mitch McConnell

Jeff Flake is an excellent Senator and a tireless advocate for Arizona and our nation. He has my full support.feedback

Steve Bannon

We're at economic war with China. On Korea, they're just tapping us along. It's just a sideshow.feedback

Art Cashin

If Cohn were to leave and that would start a rush out, then the fear would be the president wouldn't be surrounded by some of those confident people. There are concerns that if Cohn went, a Wilbur Ross might go, other people might step away.feedback

Art Cashin

And then after that, we'll watch what the rhetoric is like as we move up to the debt ceiling. That's going to be critical. There's an outside shot that they might have difficulty getting that done.feedback

Byron Wien - The Blackstone Group

I'm worried he won't get a lot of his program through, but offsetting that is the economy doing better than I originally thought. What you have to look at is the underlying fundamentals. I think we could be headed for 3 percent growth by year-end. Earnings are coming in much better than expected.feedback

Foster Friess - Friess Associates

I love Donald Trump. He's become a victim. And he's being bullied. And that's why Americans are flocking to him, because they hate [seeing] people ... bullied.feedback

Stephen Hawking

If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn't turn out very well for the Native Americans.feedback

Arnold Schwarzenegger

The only way to beat the loud, angry voice of hate is to meet them with louder, more reasonable voices. That includes you, President Trump. In fact, as President of this great country, you have a moral responsibility to send an unequivocal message that you won't stand for hate and racism. Was that that difficult. See, I told you.feedback

Tina Fey

And when you want to yell that, don't yell it at the Klan. Yell it into the cake. Sheetcaking' is a grassroots movement, Most of the women I know have been doing it once a week since the election.feedback

Kevin Durant

It's huge for us. It's huge for sports. It's huge for the influence we have, because we're leaders at the end of the day. It feels good to see my brothers in the NBA and across sports speaking out.feedback

Bob Corker

The president has not yet been able to demonstrate the stability nor some of the competence that he needs to demonstrate in order to be successful. And we need for him to be successful. Our nation needs for him to be successful. It doesn't matter if you're a Republican or Democrat. The world needs our president to be successful.feedback

Bruce Blair

I was a nuclear launch officer, so I know the problems with our system.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We better start getting tough and we better start getting vigilant, and we better start using our heads or we're not gonna have a country, folks. Be tough & strong, we love you!feedback

Donald J. Trump

I thought that the statement put out, the mother's statement, I thought was a beautiful statement. I tell you, it was something that I really appreciated. I thought it was terrific.feedback

Kevin Durant

I don't agree with what he agrees with, so my voice is going to be heard by not doing that. That's just me personally, but if I know my guys well enough, they'll all agree with me. In my opinion, until we get him out of here, we won't see any progress.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

James Murdoch, chief executive of 21st Century Fox, has pledged to donate $1 million to the Anti-Defamation League, according to an email he sent to friends. He told them, “What we watched this last week in Charlottesville and the reaction to it by the President of the United States concern all of us as Americans and free people.” He continued: “These events remind us all why vigilance against hate and bigotry is an eternal obligation - a necessary discipline for the preservation of our way of life and our ideals. The presence of hate in our society was appallingly laid bare as we watched swastikas brandished on the streets of Charlottesville and acts of brutal terrorism and violence perpetrated by a racist mob.” In pointed criticism of President Trump, he went on: “I can’t even believe I have to write this: standing up to Nazis is essential; there are no good Nazis. Or Klansmen, or terrorists. Democrats, Republicans, and others must all agree on this, and it compromises nothing for them to do so.”.feedback

Ryan Zinke

The racism, bigotry, and hate perpetrated by violent white supremacist groups has no place in America. It does not represent what I spent 23 years defending in the United States military and what millions of people around the globe have died for.We must respond to hate with love, unity and justice. I fully support President Trump and Attorney General [Jeff] Sessions in uniting our communities and prosecuting the criminals to the fullest extent of the law.feedback

Michael Moore

[Trump's] going to get us all killed. This guy's going to get us all killed. There's nobody in charge. This man (Trump) has the nuclear codes. I'm hoping somebody in the Pentagon is protecting us. Like, whatever's in that nuclear briefcase it's just some girlfriend's phone number or something. I'm just hoping that it's not the real numbers because we're in desperate shape here. By the end of this run, 100,000 people would have seen the show. And each of them will tell 10 people things I said or did here tonight. That's a million people I've reached through a Broadway show.feedback

Seth Meyers

His ties to white nationalists are well known...which is odd because no one disproves that white people are a master race more than Steve Bannon. Look at him. If he tried to do a Nazi salute, he'd throw his back out. Hey, man, are you trying to sound evil? I guess it's no coincidence that you look like Kuato from Total Recall.feedback

Lynne Patton

I am not determining fixed-rate mortgage loan rates. Nor do I have any oversight or undue influence as to individual grant distribution or project funding.feedback

Lynne Patton

I have nothing to hide. I'm not trying to correct anything because I didn't do anything wrong. It's probably not necessary.feedback

Lynne Patton

I never claimed to have a degree. Lots of people list schools they didn't finish. It was helpful to my prior work as a white collar paralegal.feedback

Susan Bro

I think the president has found a niche in voters of the people who feel marginalized and I think he has continued to nurture those marginalized voters. I want people to start talking to one another. Equality is . . . when you see a person not a label. Heather was not part of any group other than the girls in her office. She was part of a group of human beings who cared to protest.feedback

Deborah McDowell

There is a limited value of statements, and statements can become nothing but alibis. So Donald Trump could come out and say the exact right thing, and that would probably satisfy people of all different persuasions. But he would still be creating policies from his perch in the White House that are still screwing people left and right. Again, that is my issue with symbols. I would rather that people put as much energy into getting people a livable wage as they did in taking down that statue.feedback

Tina Fey

It broke my heart to see these evil forces descend upon Charlottesville. But at the same time, I don't want any more good people to get hurt. And I know a lot of us are feeling anxious and we're asking ourselves, What can I do? I'm just one person.' So I would urge people this Saturday, instead of participating in screaming matches and potential violence, find a local business you support, maybe a Jewish-run bakery or an African-American bakery. Order a cake with an American flag on it and just eat it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Congratulation to Roy Moore and Luther Strange for being the final two and heading into a September runoff in Alabama. Exciting race!feedback

Mike Pence

What happened in Charlottesville was a tragedy, and the president has been clear on this tragedy and so have I. The strength of the United States of America is always strongest, as the president has said so eloquently, when we are united around our shared values, and so it will always be.feedback

Steve Bannon

I'd always planned on spending one year... I want to get back to Breitbart. Now I'm free. I've got my hands back on my weapons... I am definitely going to crush the opposition. There's no doubt. I built a fucking machine at Breitbart. And now I'm about to go back, knowing what I know, and we're about to rev that machine up. And rev it up we will do.feedback

Angelo Carusone - Media Matters

Much of what Donald Trump said this week that James Murdoch is condemning actually came directly from Fox News. So if James Murdoch really believes what he wrote in that email, then he needs to start with Fox News, the network that he runs.feedback

Norman Eisen

If he was not willing to admit he was a de facto special government employee, and follow the rules, then he had no place serving in government. His short tenure, marred by serious conflicts allegations, was yet another black eye for an administration that has become notorious for violations of ethics and the rule of law.feedback

Steve Bannon

The media should be embarrassed and humiliated and keep its mouth shut and just listen for a while. I want you to quote this. The media here is the opposition party. They don't understand this country. They still do not understand why Donald Trump is the president of the United States. I'm a Leninist. Lenin, wanted to destroy the state, and that's my goal too. I want to bring everything crashing down, and destroy all of today's establishment.feedback

Ben Shapiro - Breitbart News Network

There will be screaming matches between Steve and every other person in the office. But there will be no screaming matches between Steve and Trump. Steve knows where his bread is buttered.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I have directed that United States Cyber Command be elevated to the status of a Unified Combatant Command focused on cyberspace operations. This new Unified Combatant Command will strengthen our cyberspace operations and create more opportunities to improve our nation's defense. The elevation of United States Cyber Command demonstrates our increased resolve against cyberspace threats and will help reassure our allies and partners and deter our adversaries.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

Hate is not an American value. We do not honor, nor do we promote or accept hate speech in any form. And those who embrace it poison our public discourse and they damage the very country that they claim to love. So we condemn racism, bigotry in all its forms. Racism is evil; it is antithetical to America's values. It's antithetical to the American idea.feedback

Seth Meyers

Of course he is. Trump is incapable of feeling regret. Trump feels regret as often as he feels Melania's touch. So basically, all the things that happen to a president every day. Trump's aides talk about him like he's a caged gorilla at the zoo. But not all of Trump's aides and allies tried to distance themselves from Trump's unhinged press conference. There's also Trump's chief strategist Steve Bannon, whose ties to white nationalists are well known, which is odd because no one disproves the idea that white people are a master race more than Steve Bannon.feedback

Stephen Colbert

The story is complete nonsense. However, one thing about General Pershing that is true is this quote of his: 'A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.feedback

Stephen Colbert

That is a dark story. No wonder his kids turned out the way they did. And then the big bad wolf slaughtered two of the three little pigs, and he told the third one, you piggy, you go back to the sty and tell your buddies no more brick houses.feedback

Stephen Colbert

I want to take a moment to send our thoughts to the people of Barcelona, Spain, who suffered a horrific attack today. A vehicle drove into a crowd in that city, killing at least 12 people and injuring dozens more. This is a heartbreaking reminder that evil is real and the United States is not alone in fighting it.feedback

Stephen Colbert

Trump's point is we've got to be tough like we used to. But here's one problem with that: the story is not true. It's been called a 'poorly sourced yarn'. Poorly sourced yarn, by the way, also what Ivanka uses in her clothing line.feedback

Seth Meyers

He said this to the American Prospect about the Democrats. The longer they talk about identity politics, I got 'em. I want them to talk about racism every day. If the left is focused on race and identity, and we go with economic nationalism, we can crush the Democrats.feedback

Stephen Colbert

One historian said, this story is a fabrication and has long been discredited. I am amazed it is still making the rounds. If it wasn't for our president, a lot of things wouldn't be making the rounds.feedback

Seth Meyers

The president has come under tremendous criticism for his response to Charlottesville, but apparently for some of Trump's aides the problem was not that he defended white supremacists, but that he said it out loud in front of the cameras. So Trump's staff isn't upset he's a racist. They're upset we found out about it. For his part, Trump almost seemed relieved to have finally gotten off his chest how he really feels. In fact, those close to him say he's happy about how his Tuesday press conference turned out.feedback

Stephen Colbert

There's a story about General Pershing, an American general who fought Muslim insurgents in the Philippines about a century ago. Trump likes telling the story about how Pershing executed Muslim prisoners of war.feedback

Stephen Colbert

I also want to note that today President Trump said the right thing, tweeting, the 'United States condemns the terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, and will do whatever is necessary to help. Be tough and strong. We love you. Thank you, sir. Simple, dignified, presidential. That's what you hope for. He's right. We love you, Spain. And I was sincerely happy to see that kind of moral leadership from our president for about 45 minutes. Because then he tweeted: 'Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught. There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years.feedback

The current system is both punitive and combative. We need a system that is collaborative. We need fundamental change.feedback

Individuals are very vulnerable when they sign contracts to enter a nursing home. In many cases, they are transferred from a hospital, and they are in a nursing home bed for several days before the contracts are even signed. The arbitration agreement may be just one page in a voluminous contract of 30 to 40 pages. Most of the people who come to me have no idea they've even signed an arbitration agreement.feedback

Mark Parkinson

There is no justification for singling out arbitration in this manner.feedback

Mike Mills

The practice of executing arbitration contracts during the nursing home admissions process raises valid concerns, on a public policy level, since many residents and their relatives are 'at wit's end' and prepared to sign anything to gain admission.feedback

Patty Ducayet

The proposed rule would undermine the rights of people living in nursing homes – rights established in a 1987 law.feedback

Kelly McCoy

[Trump's] rejection of diversity and his lack of respect for the differences of others around him stands in direct opposition to the principles laid out here. He does not reflect Lehigh University's values. Therefore, he does not deserve to bear the distinction of an honorary degree from Lehigh.feedback

Robin Kirk

Why don't we have a monument to justice, to the arts? Why don't we have a monument to John Coltrane? He's a North Carolinian.feedback

Adam Pendleton

These are not works of art, they're propaganda. To equate them with how a work of art exists in the world is a false equation. They're instruments of a political agenda and it would be real folly to suggest that there is any kind of ambiguity.feedback

Mark Bradford

If this whole conversation is about the history of this country, then you have to talk about the history of this country. Don't just leave these empty spaces. Contextualize the action. I don't feel like that can be rushed.feedback

Adam Pendleton

Part of what's being debated is what these statues represent. It's very clear what they represent: They memorialize a very dark period in American history. We're talking about a moment when people were enslaved. It's the opposite of everything America is supposed to stand for. Get them down.feedback

Lonnie G. Bunch III

I am loath to erase history. For me it's less about whether they come down or not, and more about what the debate is stimulating.feedback

Michele H. Bogart

The meanings and the history that we are able to draw from them in a different site, especially a sort of sanitized site like a museum, are not going to be the same. That is a historical loss.feedback

Mitt Romney

Our allies around the world are stunned and our enemies celebrate; America's ability to help secure a peaceful and prosperous world is diminished. And who would want to come to the aid of a country they perceive as racist if ever the need were to arise, as it did after 9/11? In homes across the nation, children are asking their parents what this means. Jews, blacks, Hispanics, Muslims are as much a part of America as whites and Protestants. But today they wonder. Where might this lead? To bitterness and tears, or perhaps to anger and violence?feedback

Frank Bruni

This presidency isn’t just broken. It’s vacant.feedback

John McCain

There's no moral equivalency between racists & Americans standing up to defy hate & bigotry. The President of the United States should say so.feedback

Sima Kadmon

After he turned Trump into the best thing that has happened to the Jews in 5,000 years, into the greatest friend of Israel in history, how can Netanyahu now issue a condemnation and talk about an anti-Semitic and racist president?feedback

Justin Gest

Without his chief strategist the president will still have the ‘alt-right’ credentials they built together to mobilize and transform the Republican base. Intrigue swirls around the future of Steve Bannon at the White House in the aftermath of Donald Trump’s management of last weekend’s attacks by white nationalists in Charlottesville, Virginia.feedback

If we do get another one or two weeks of risk-off, I would expect yen to be on the stronger side.feedback

Masashi Murata - Brown Brothers Harriman

There is the risk that the yen might keep edging higher. If the dollar falls below 109 yen, that could set the stage for a test of its year-to-date low of 108.13 yen.feedback

Helen Mirren

If people treat me like the age I am, I get absolutely insulted, really cross. I hate when people give up their seat for me. I'm Eastern European, you know; [we've] got these dark souls. That dark Slovenian soul is about to come out. She's only got to do a nice interview with Allure.feedback

Tressie Smith

If a hurricane comes, I'm screwed. We'd be screwed. But that doesn't change my opinion about Trump. Outsiders think that everybody is just looking for a handout down here, but there is hard-working people that live here. There are just not many jobs right now, especially if all you know is commercial fishing. Even if Trump cuts those programs that helped us, we gonna make it one way or another here, with or without help. Down here we survive.feedback

Ted Cruz

The Nazis, the KKK, and white supremacists are repulsive and evil, and all of us have a moral obligation to speak out against the lies, bigotry, anti-Semitism, and hatred that they propagate.feedback

Douglas Brinkley

This should be his strong suit: courting C.E.O.s. Instead, Trump finds himself with C.E.O.s not wanting to be in a photo op with the president. What should have been an honor has become an albatross.feedback

Janelle Jones - Economic Policy Institute

The idea that the availability of jobs is the way to solve race relations is misguided. Even if you have jobs available, there's still discrimination in pay and promotion. Being able to have a job that pays well and comes with benefits, to buy a house in a place that isn't racially segregated, to send your kids to a school that is not racially segregated, these are parts of what makes for a quality economic outcome.feedback

Margaret Simms

It has tended to be the case that when the pie gets bigger, there is more willingness to share some of the increase. However, it is not clear that the number of jobs generated by the actions the president has mentioned will provide the quantity or quality of jobs that would be needed to have this impact.feedback

Stephen Innes

Diminishing West Wing support from both business and political allies will continue to abrade investors' confidence in President Trump's economic agenda. The dollar, for the most part, remains in a state of directionless confusion, supported on the one hand by resurgent U.S. economic data yet burdened by the expanding White House rat's nest.feedback

Stephen Metcalf

The free market produces a tiny cadre of winners and an enormous army of losers – and the losers, looking for revenge, have turned to Brexit and Trump.feedback

Jim Cramer

I certainly can see that Cohn's important enough to Trump's economic agenda that his leaving would really hurt the stock market. But then again, the White House issued a statement saying he's not going anywhere, so it's not a particularly cogent reason to sell.feedback

Jim Cramer

If you're selling stocks because so many CEOs are getting off the Trump train, I've got a news flash for you: you need a better reason. Trump's economic agenda is stalled because Congress can't get its act together. It can't even pass a debt ceiling bill. If the executive council dismissals is what makes you want to sell, you should've gotten out months ago.feedback

Jim Cramer

The calendar and these weak-handed momentum shareholders that have gone along for the ride have coalesced to produce a wave of selling. Now you have to ask yourself, will the president seize that as an excuse to deflect anyone who wants to link this decline to the White House, blame it on August? Why not? Beats blaming the CEOs who broke with the president, unless you're the kind of guy who just loves having someone to blame.feedback

Tina Fey

So it broke my heart to see these evil forces descend upon Charlottesville. And then our president, Donald John Trump, and I don't think enough people talk about what a stupid, jackass name that is. Whatever, he gets away with it because he's gorgeous. Anyway, Donny John comes out and he says that he condemns violence 'on many sides,' on many sides, Colin. I'm feeling sick because, you know, I have seen Raiders of the Lost Ark and I wasn't confused by it. No, Colin, Nazis are always bad, I don't care what you say.feedback

Donald J. Trump

You heard that, right? They were having terrorism problems, just like we do. And for 25 years, there wasn't a problem. Okay? Twenty-five years, there wasn't a problem.feedback

The next level traders will be eyeing is the 100-day at 2416, and I don't think traders will be in much of a rush to buy because a 3 percent correction, which is somewhat normal, doesn't happen until 2390.feedback

Peter Boockvar - The Lindsey Group

For the first time, people are now questioning if he can get anything done policy-wise. His agenda is under threat. I think it's Trump-related. People are worried about the unraveling of his team, his administration's authority and what this means for tax reform. Every day, he makes a new enemy in Congress. Today's he's picked a fight with [South Carolina Sen.] Lindsey Graham.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The big concern was the president would end up isolating us, the U.S., from the rest of the world. Now what we're finding is the president is isolating himself from the rest of the world.feedback
