Stephanie Grisham
Per Vatican protocol, women who have an audience with the Pope are required to wear long sleeves, formal black clothing, and a veil to cover the head. It was not required for her to wear a headscarf and nobody asked her to, and based on that she chose not to.feedback

Curt Woodworth - Credit Suisse Group
Serena Rocha Calejon - Credit Suisse Group

Our conversations with trade lawyers have noted that the Trump administration has had a 'chilling effect' with respect to growing trade with the United States, especially in Asia.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

It begins to reduce the size of the debt relative to the size of the economy in Year One, OK?feedback

Mick Mulvaney

There are no Medicaid cuts in the terms of what ordinary human beings would refer to as a cut. We are not spending less money one year than we spent before.feedback

Newt Gingrich

In Saudi Arabia, Trump directly called on the Muslim world to defeat the forces of terrorism and extremism.feedback

Charles Lane

In both style and substance, the 45th president is the antithesis of the 35th — especially on trade.feedback

Elijah Cummings

The deficiencies in this approach are obvious. Under the policy outlined in this pamphlet, foreign governments could provide prohibited emoluments to President Trump, for example, through organizations such as RT (Russia Today), the propaganda arm of the Russian government, or a host of other entities that are funded or controlled by foreign governments. Those payments would not be tracked in any way and would be hidden from the American public.feedback

Tom Price

The CBO was wrong when they analyzed Obamacare's effect on cost and coverage, and they are wrong again. In reality, Americans are paying more for fewer healthcare choices because of Obamacare – and that's why the Trump administration is committed to reforming healthcare.feedback

Adam Schiff

If that's something that we did, I think that's a real problem. If we gave up information that has interfered in any way with their investigation because it tipped off people in Britain - perhaps associates of this person that we identified as the bomber - then that's a real problem and they have every right to be furious.feedback

Edgar Rodriguez

You know how things are with Trump's laws now; someone goes to court, and boom, they get taken away.feedback

Stephane Dujarric - United Nations

The figures presented would simply make it impossible for the UN to continue all of its essential work advancing peace, development, human rights and humanitarian assistance. The Secretary-General is totally committed to reforming the United Nations. We stand ready to discuss with the United States and any other member state how best we can create a more cost-effective organization to pursue our shared goals and values.feedback

Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo

In the election campaign, he even said it was a Chinese invention . ... But this president has already changed on several things, so perhaps on this, as well.feedback

Sigourney Weaver

I was in hooker boots! The extraordinary beauty of this place, I think people will come away with a lot of information about how fragile an ecosystem is. It's just in time. I think President Trump should come down. I think it's something we all need. The rest of the world is so ahead with all of this. Other countries are not climate deniers. I think it's a fantastic experience where people can understand these issues from a new perspective.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

If it's important enough for us to have then we should be paying for it, because right now my unborn grandchildren are going to be paying for it.feedback

Sonny Perdue

I don't know that your priorities are much different from my priorities for USDA. I think your comments are essentially irrefutable.feedback

Robert Shiller

He is an inspiration for many people. And many other people don't like him, as you may have heard. On the other hand, they may still invest in a rising stock market out of belief in his powers. But for a long-term investor and most people are, I think there should be a place for stocks in the portfolio and they could go up a lot from where they are now ... they could also go down.feedback

Pramila Jayapal

This budget starts by taking away health care, then food, then housing, then education, then job opportunities.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It's not fair that we're paying close to 4 per cent and other countries that are more directly affected are paying 1 per cent when they're supposed to be paying 2 per cent.feedback

Domenico Dolce

We oppose gay adoptions. The only family is the traditional one … No chemical offsprings and rented uterus; Life has a natural flow, there are things that should not be changed.feedback

Katrien Vandevelde

I came particularly to fight against climate change. Trump is accelerating the melting of the ice caps. I so wish the moment he gets home he will be impeached and we can get Bernie Sanders and have the whole world fighting against global warming.feedback

Malika Bali

He doesn't like foreigners, he doesn't like women and he is not welcome here.feedback

Jim Abrams

That would be the cleanest way to do it. It would be almost impossible. Someone is going to have to come in and go through every single reservation.feedback

Federica Mogherini - European Union

Stronger European Union in the field of security and defence makes NATO stronger and a stronger NATO is key to European but also to American security.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

Terrorists struck again this week in Manchester, this was a barbaric attack, which deliberately targeted children, young people and their families.That is also why one of the two main topics that we are going to discuss tomorrow is how NATO can step up its efforts contributing to the fight against terrorism.feedback

Roberto Castaldi

The relationship (between the U.S. and Europe) has started changing in fact already under Obama with the shift of the American strategic focus to the Pacific. This power vacuum that the Americans left is the condition of possibility for Russia invading Crimea and for the destabilisation of the Middle East and North Africa. So Trump is just accelerating this trend, which puts more pressure on the Europeans to cope with their neighbourhood and to stabilise their neighbourhood…to fill the power vacuum that the Americans left.feedback

Elijah Cummings

This pamphlet raises grave concerns about the president's refusal to comply with the Constitution because he believes it is 'impractical' and could 'diminish the guest experience of our brand'. Complying with the United States Constitution is not an optional exercise, but a requirement for serving as our nation's president. If President Trump believes that identifying all of the prohibited foreign emoluments he is currently receiving would be too challenging or would harm his business ventures, his options are to divest his ownership or submit a proposal to Congress to ask for our consent.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Number one is terrorism. We will win, 100 percent. You go to Brussels – I was in Brussels a long time ago, 20 years ago, so beautiful, everything is so beautiful – it's like living in a hellhole right now.feedback

Mark Sanford

But what you presume in this budget is not only will we not have a recession – though we're in the third longest economic expansion in history – but it's going to keep going for another 214 months. It's not only unprecedented; I would think that to be unreasonable. It assumes that the stars perfectly align with regard to economic drivers.feedback

Mark Sanford

It would require either radically opening immigration or a radical change to demographics as we are having 10,000 baby boomers retiring each say. If you look at productivity growth, it would require numbers, again, that we haven't seen since the golden days of 1958 to 1967 – in the final wave of electrification, consumer appliances, and the completion of the highway system – to achieve what we're seeing. Even if we went to 1990 numbers, we would only see one-quarter of what is necessary to achieve 3 percent growth.feedback

Mark Sanford

Whatever your budget is, just base it on real numbers and then let's have a food fight. But let's not base it on fooling the American public into believing that you can do all this because we're going to have a Goldilocks economy that we've never seen before.feedback

Mark Sanford

I have looked every which way at how you might get there, and you can't get there. I think it is just disastrously consequential to build a budget on 3 percent growth. The Bible says you can't build a house on a sandy foundation. What it does is it perpetuates a myth that we can go out there and balance a budget without touching entitlements. It's not only a myth, it's frankly a lie, and if it gets started at the executive branch level it moves from there.feedback

Mark Sanford

What this does is it [prevents] real debates from happening. Legitimately, myself and Democratic colleagues can see things quite differently, but for us to have a real debate, we have to base it on real numbers. I would also say it's important because I'm a deficit hawk as you well know, and if you're wrong on these numbers, it means all of a sudden we've created a $2-plus trillion dollar hole for our kids and grandkids here going forward.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Many people are saying it was wonderful that Mrs. Obama refused to wear a scarf in Saudi Arabia, but they were insulted. We have enuf (sic) enemies.feedback

Donald J. Trump

They're highly talented with great insight into the future.feedback

Jack Quinn

They must find a way to take this entire basket of matters concerning the investigation and assemble people to deal with it from a legal and communications standpoint.feedback

James Madison

If men were angels, no government would be necessary.feedback

Noah Bookbinder

Rep. Cummings is right. This is a wholly inadequate response to the president's constitutional violations.feedback

Paul Goydos

I think that's good, as long as it's peaceful. They have the right to maybe yell from the river or something. I think that's a healthy thing for our society. We need more people talking. I would hope he had better things to do. I think that's unfortunate, but it wouldn't be the first time. That doesn't feel like that's infringing on my rights. I don't think yelling or disrupting my game is any kind of crime.feedback

Jamie Carbone

Our championships are about conducting the best events we can at world-class venues with open membership policies – not about any one person.feedback

Donald Marron

You have some investors that are out there saying, Huh. If the health-slash-tax bill goes through, taxes on capital gains go down 3.8 percentage points. Maybe there's a chance that tax reform would go even further.feedback

Doug Andres

The U.S. will meet its obligations, and we will address this issue with our colleagues in the Senate and the administration in a timely manner.feedback

Steven Mnuchin

We can all discuss how we cut spending and how we deal with the budget going forward, but it is absolutely critical that where we've spent money, that we keep the credit of the United States as the most critical issue. It is the reserve currency of the world.feedback

Bradley Byrne

We have successfully pushed back in the past against efforts by the Obama Administration to alter this program, and I expect we will do the same this year. This money belongs on the Gulf Coast.feedback

Bradley Byrne

The GOMESA program is critical to coastal states, who assume the environmental and economic risks and provide a majority of the infrastructure and workforce for the offshore oil and gas industry.feedback

Norman Eisen

As a legal matter, the trademark itself is a thing of value, as proven by how hard the president has fought for some of these trademarks over the years, in China and elsewhere. The Constitution simply does not allow him to collect foreign tributes of this kind while he sits in the Oval Office.feedback

Billy Bush

With Trump it's not much of a give and take. I should have known better, absolutely. There's no question about that. I look back and I wish. People also say, You should have stopped him.' But I didn't have the strength of character at the time – I wish I did. I can tell you 12 years ago, it was my first year as co-host of the show [and] I was insecure. I was a pleaser. I kind of remember wanting these celebrities to like me so I could keep going on with this job.feedback

Paul Ryan

Here's what I'm happy about: We finally have a president who's willing to actually even balance the budget. And we will have a great debate about the details on how to achieve those goals.feedback

Larry Summers

The revenue generated by the investments might exceed their cost (though the same is almost never true of tax cuts), but that doesn't change the fact that the investment has a cost that must be included in the accounting. This is a mistake no serious business person would make. It appears to be the most egregious accounting error in a presidential budget in the nearly 40 years I have been tracking them.feedback

Bill Lipton

Bold progressive populism that puts working people's issues front and center–this is how we win in Trump country.feedback

Ralph Miller

It's just very difficult to try and determine in advance what the calculation may look like.feedback

Sheri Dillon

President-elect Trump has decided, and we are announcing today, that he is going to voluntarily donate all profits from foreign government payments to his hotels to the United States Treasury.feedback

Michael Knoll

If he is only giving away the net income and then claiming a deduction, then he hasn't fully given away all his earnings from activities.feedback

Joel Feigenheimer

If someone doesn't want you to know who they are – whether it's a government, or a girlfriend or boyfriend who is cheating – you don't register under your real name. There's no reason for these people to register. It is not the Chinese's problem if they are staying at the Trump hotels.feedback

Ralph Miller

[While] net income is defined by generally accepted accounting principles, the term profit is not. It's revenue minus costs, but which costs and at what level and over what period of time?feedback

Barry LaPides - Berger Singerman

He learned his lesson about over-leveraging and a lot of how he invested in real estate was licensing his name to other developers.feedback

Toni Repetti

What is the proof that they are or are not a foreign dignitary? How do you know? There's no universal list.feedback

Mohamed El-Erian - Pimco

This is no longer a Trump trade. This is somewhere between a reflation trade, but much more importantly a liquidity trade. This is a liquidity-driven market. I have underestimated the strength of the liquidity injections. Not just from the Fed, but I think the increase in [income] inequality has meant there's been less consumption and more investing in the market. And the profit share is so high that the companies are putting the money back into the marketplace.feedback

Andrew M. Cuomo

We're way behind on infrastructure. We haven't built in an airport in over 25 years. We're not building bridges, roads, tunnels. ... Short-term we're now paying the price of ignoring the maintenance.feedback

Christos Vasiliades

You know how things are with Trump's laws now. Someone goes to court and, boom, they get taken away.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I want to keep NATO but I want them to pay. … I don't want to be taken advantage of…We're protecting countries that most of the people in this room have never even heard of and we end up in world war three … Give me a break. I complained about that a long time ago, and they made a change–and now they do fight terrorism. I said it was obsolete. It's no longer obsolete.feedback

Barack Obama

I say to the people of Estonia and the people of the Baltics, today we are bound by our treaty Alliance. We have a solemn duty to each other. Article Five is crystal clear: An attack on one is an attack on all. So if, in such a moment, you ever ask again, who will come to help,' you'll know the answer–the NATO Alliance, including the Armed Forces of the United States of America.feedback

Norm Eisen

This new document demonstrates that President Trump is not even living up to the inadequate commitment that he made to segregate foreign profits at his hotels and voluntarily donate them to the U.S. Treasury. This comes nowhere near the standard set by the Constitution and we look forward to litigating this matter. Even the defective standard they set forward is not being followed. It is another example of the contempt this administration has for American law.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

I'm aware of the criticisms and would simply come back and say there's other places where we were probably overly conservative in our accounting. We stand by the numbers. We thought that the assumption that the tax reform would be deficit-neutral was the most reasonable of the three options that we had.feedback

Scott Wren

We're going to see a bit of a fade here. Certainly, infrastructure spending, tax cuts and less regulation – that's all pro-growth. But are we going to get some of that implemented in enough magnitude to move the needle on the economy anytime soon? We didn't think it was going to happen quick. We want our clients to be in this market. Certainly, if Donald Trump would be re-elected, to not have a recession over the next eight years would be almost impossible. You've got to play for lower returns.feedback

Jane Sherburne

What the president could learn about crisis management from the Clinton White House.feedback

Sebastian Mallaby

The subprime mortgage era saw the “Big Short.” Today’s milder analogue may be the “Trump Short.”.feedback

Samuel T. Morison

My opinion is that in theory that he could. But then he would be potentially subject to impeachment for doing that. There are no constraints defined in the Constitution itself that says he can't do that.feedback

Hillary Clinton

This administration and Republicans in Congress are mounting an onslaught against the needs of children and people with disabilities, women, and seniors. [The budget] shows an unimaginable level of cruelty and lack of imagination and disdain for the struggles of millions of Americans, including millions of children. None of us can remain silent in the face of these attacks. It hurts the well-being of children. It's time to send a resounding message that we will not stand for this attack on the most vulnerable among us.feedback

Antonio Spadaro

The thing they have in common is a major responsibility to govern...The pope is an actor on the world stage and Trump is the president of a country with a huge impact on the world.feedback

Benjamin Netanyahu

The majority of the people of Israel, unlike the media, they love us so we tell them how you are great and they love you.feedback

Shaun Casey

Harvard professor Bryan Hehir once famously warned that government officials who deal with the role of religion in foreign policy should see their work as akin to brain surgery — necessary, but fatal if not done well. That thesis will be tested as President Trump concludes his journey to Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Occupied [].feedback

Justin Glawe

“Many thousands” of American jobs will be created, President Trump says, thanks to a mammoth arms deal that he signed with Saudi Arabia over the weekend. On paper. Whether and where those jobs will actually materialize is anyone’s guess — and the only new jobs that have been announced will be in Saudi Arabia, where [].feedback

Tom Carper

I think if [President Obama's EPA administrator] Gina McCarthy had been so inept in responding to the inquiries of our Republican colleagues, they would have shut down the Senate.feedback

Martin Heinrich

I want to know, has there been a blanket policy of telling any agency not to be responsive? Because we're not getting off to a good start.feedback

Ron Wyden

This just seems to be across-the-board, systemic rewriting of the separation of powers. Everybody understands that in the first days of a new administration you're kind of finding your feet and may take a little bit of extra time, and people like me will acknowledge that. That's not what's going on. This really feels like a pattern of just saying, We don't believe in getting back to Congress as they try to carry out their oversight responsibilities.feedback

Mitch McConnell

It's been disappointing to see so much pointless obstruction by our friends across the aisle. And they've done so not to change the result, but simply to eat up floor time that could be used for legislation to help our constituents.feedback

Chuck Schumer

The fact that they just turn their back on oversight is part of a deeper syndrome, which is no respect for separation of powers, no respect for how the Constitution set up our government. It's going to hurt the country, and it's going to hurt them. There are other things that we can do, and we're exploring them. We have the floor of the Senate.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We can't let a madman with nuclear weapons let on the loose like that. We have a lot of firepower, more than he has, times 20 - but we don't want to use it. I understand that and fully understand that and I think we had a previous president who did not understand that. You can tell him I am counting on him. I have a very good relationship with him. I had him in Florida for two days and got to know him well. He is a good guy.feedback

Alex Conant

Trump does not have much invested in Congress and Congress doesn't have much invested in him. Congressional Republicans and Trump ran separate campaigns last fall and credit their elections to different coalitions, and at the end of the day while they're Republicans they're only united by their agenda.feedback

Isaac Herzog

I'm sure the solution will be two states, because there is no other solution. It's the only solution that can be accepted by all sides concerned. At the end of it all one cannot escape from it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I will love to have you in the Oval Office. Any time you want to come . . . Seriously, if you want to come over, just let us know. Just take care of yourself, and we will take care of North Korea.feedback

Yukio Ishizuki - Daiwa Securities Group

The rise in Treasury yields is supporting the dollar. It appears that speculative buying of Treasuries has run its course, with Trump concerns and geopolitical risks no longer fresh news.feedback

Kelly Fowler

The Trump effect might have been a good thing, in the long run. Everyone is awake and paying attention and taking a stand.feedback

Stephanie Schriock

I think there's been a real empowerment of women to step up and want their voices heard in all aspects of society, and that particularly means elective office. There are many reasons - one clearly is the election of Donald Trump and what that means to a lot of women in their gut who say, Wait a minute, if that can happen I've got to take charge and get involved myself.feedback

Rodrigo Duterte

As long as those rockets and warheads are in the hands of [North Korean leader] Kim Jong-un we will never be safe as there's no telling what will happen next.feedback

Nita Lowey

Your budget proposal would make communities ... less safe.feedback

Ted Bishop

I don't see where it would be a detraction or a distraction in any way, shape or form. I think that now the site selection has been enhanced even more by the fact that the facility is in some way under the ownership of the current, sitting president of the United States. I don't see where that's a bad thing, politics aside. Whether you agree with the man or not, I think it's a good thing for golf.feedback

Sally Yates

Doing your job means you are not simply a reflection of someone else's talents or opinions. You're the person to whom a leader turns when he or she needs to hear the truth.feedback

Sally Yates

Everything was to stay status quo. This was the first we had even heard of it. I do think it's illustrative of an unexpected moment where the law and conscience intersected. I believed then, and believe now, that resigning would have protected my personal integrity, but it would not have protected the integrity of the Department of Justice. And that can sometimes be a lonely place to be. But I'm hoping that fear of being wrong won't keep you from acting.feedback

Jeff Rathke

The administration has not yet articulated any kind of agenda for the (trade) relationship with the European Union.feedback

David Leavitt

And now I have a small insight of what Donald Trump must deal with on a regular basis.feedback

Jen Psaki

We always saw press conferences as part of our objective: to send the message in countries without a free press, or with limitations on freedom of speech that the United States valued these sometimes-unpredictable interactions as a part of democracy.feedback

Jan Schakowsky

We are talking about half the births in the United States, 30 million children, and half of all nursing home and long-term care nationwide for senior citizens and people with disabilities.feedback

John Brennan

I was convinced in the summer that the Russians were trying to interfere in the election. And they were very aggressive.feedback

Nikki Haley

I was a governor, I had to do an executive budget. What an executive budget is is the start of a conversation.feedback

Stephane Dujarric - United Nations

We are indeed very grateful for the support the United States has given to the United Nations over the years as the organization's largest financial contributor.feedback

Dustin Hoffman

I've often wondered, at least in my business – which it is – or in my art form that whatever amount of drugs or drinking or different types of self-destruction, that they were thinking as they were coming up, that if they ever hit that moment of money and success, that that would be it. And then they found out that it has nothing to do with your inner self – not a shred. It may for a while, if you kid yourself, and yet it doesn't fill up that hole. I do feel that about Trump very strongly.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We can use peace. Well, I'll be reading them. Thank you, thank you. I won't forget what you said. Great. He is something. He is really good. We had a fantastic meeting.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We're protecting countries that most of the people in this room have never even heard of and we end up in World War III. Give me a break.feedback

Donald J. Trump

If they fulfill their obligations to us, the answer is yes. Right now we don't have somebody looking at terror, and we should be looking at terror.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

Fair burden sharing has been my top priority since taking office. We are now working to keep up the momentum, including by developing national plans outlining how to make good on what we agreed in 2014.feedback

Jamelle Bouie - Slate

On top of all of this, Trump's budget makes substantial cuts to job-training programs, rental assistance, heating assistance for the elderly, education, and projects at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as well as funding for rural health and substance-abuse programs.feedback

Edwin Park

The Trump budget assumes hundreds of billions more in Medicaid cuts than the House bill.feedback

Jens Stoltenberg - NATO

I expect Nato allies to step up and agree to do more in the fight against terrorism, not least because of what we saw in Manchester on Monday. [Nato membership of the Coalition would] send a strong and clear message of unity in fight against terrorism and in light of attacks in Manchester it's important that we send this clear message that we are united in the fight against terrorism.feedback

Robert Rector

The bottom line is that a work requirement serves as a kind of gatekeeping device. The primary goal is reciprocity. It's a moral goal in the sense that what you want to say is, We will give aid to those who need aid, but we expect constructive activity in exchange for aid.' That's the whole principle. Everything else is secondary to that.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

I would assure you if you're in this country and you want to work, there's good news, because Donald Trump is president, and we're going to get 3 percent growth, and we're going to give you a chance to get back to work.feedback

LaDonna Pavetti

The president's budget has this tension where they're basically saying we want people to go to work, and they're cutting the resources that would allow people to get there.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

We need people to go to work. If you're on food stamps, and you're able-bodied, we need you to go to work. If you're on disability insurance and you're not supposed to be – if you're not truly disabled, we need you to go back to work. We need everybody pulling in the same direction.feedback

Catherine Pepinster

Progressive Catholics want Francis to be an alternative voice, and diplomacy requires dialogue with people you don’t agree with. When the president of Ireland, Michael D Higgins, visited the Vatican on Monday, he gave Pope Francis a gold and white bell, a symbol of their mutual concern about global warming. It’s usual for heads of state and the pope to exchange gifts during a meeting but it’s hard to imagine Donald Trump, who is due to visit Pope Francis on Wednesday, would ever consider a gift that might have anything to do with climate change. The US president thinks global warming was invented by the Chinese to harm American manufacturing, while the pope is so convinced of its existence he wrote a papal document dedicated to climate change and its consequences for the world’s poorest.feedback

Mahmoud Abbas

I would like to reiterate to your excellency Mr President our commitment to cooperate with you in order to make peace and forge a historic peace deal with the Israelis. And we would like to reassert our willingness to continue to work with you as partners in fighting terrorism in our region and the world.feedback

Pope Francis

In our talk, things will come out, I will say what I think, he will say what he thinks, but I never, ever, wanted to make a judgment without hearing the person.feedback

Pope Francis

There are always doors that are not closed. We need to find the doors that are at least partly open, go in, and talk about things we have in common and go forward, step by step. Topics will emerge in our conversations. I will say what I think and he will say what he thinks. But I have never wanted to make a judgement without first listening to the person.feedback

Derek Chollet

The bar for success at this meeting, which NATO is not even bothering to call a summit, is incredibly low. This is an ambition-less summit; it's about showing up. The people preparing it define success as Trump shows up, there's no drama, the right things are said and everyone gets out cleanly.feedback

Nicholas Burns

Trump needs to speak and act on this trip to inspire respect from his peers. They will be wondering if he is reliable, and can they trust his word, or is he handicapped by scandal.feedback

Tomas Valasek

To the extent there is substance, the allies are going out of their way to say they've heard him loud and clear, and will spend more on defense and focus more on counterterrorism. But there will be an effort to make sure Trump feels comfortable with the alliance and give him no reason to break with it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Palestinians are ready to reach for peace. Benjamin Netanyahu wants peace. We are telling you right now that Iran will not have nuclear weapons. So many young, beautiful innocent people living and enjoying their lives, murdered by evil losers in life.feedback

Tomas Valasek

Trump has challenged the idea that active engagement in Europe is a core U.S. interest. He appears to regard all foreign relations as zero-sum transactions, in which each contribution to someone else's security represents a net loss to the United States.feedback

John Brennan

It should be clear to everyone that Russia brazenly interfered in our 2016 presidential election process, and that they undertook these activities despite our strong protests and explicit warning that they do not do so. I don't do evidence. The information and intelligence revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and US persons involved in the Trump campaign that I was concerned about because of known Russian efforts to suborn such individuals. It raised questions in my mind about whether the Russians were able to gain the cooperation of such individuals.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

We're no longer going to measure compassion by the number of programs or the number of people on those programs, but by the number of people we help get off of those programs. We're not going to measure compassion by the amount of money that we spend, but by the number of people that we help. That is how you can help people take charge of their own lives again.feedback

Maria Cantwell

We are not going to let Donald Trump auction off our energy security to the highest bidder.feedback

John Hoeven

We should not be selling oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve now. We should use the SPR for emergencies, and selling now would disrupt the markets.feedback

Gene Green

Putting that much oil on the market, you will see a lot of layoffs in the energy business.feedback

Alan Viard

Tax policy is clearly not some overwhelmingly powerful tool that affects growth.feedback

Nariman Behravesh - IHS

Could well end up hurting a lot of poor people without boosting growth. If you tilt the tax cuts toward lower-income households, they will spend more of it. There is virtually no debate among economists about that.feedback

Doug Holtz-Eakin

With the economy back to near full employment, conventional tax cuts or stimulus spending won't have that much of an effect. What is needed are policies that genuinely augment the supply side of the economy.feedback

John Gehring

Trump could learn a lot from Francis about how to use power with humility. If you think about Francis, he's one of the most savvy global political leaders. He comes from Argentina–during the Dirty War–and had relations with a cross section of leaders. He understands how people tick. He understands that this is a president with a big ego and a presidency that's not going well. The Pope will be sensitive to that. Trump could walk out of room a bit enamored, or at least looking at things with different eyes.feedback

Massimo Faggioli

Trump is a very different leader, but if the Vatican has to talk to a global power, it's the U.S. It's a marriage necessitated by the cultural proximity, and the historical ties between North America and Europe. And it will continue–well past 2020 or 2024.feedback

I don't think most people know what the Vatican is, but most people know what it stands for. They have a grasp that what Francis and Trump stand for are quite different things. The Pope has become the voice of hope for those who are hopeless. The last resource for those who are voiceless, for those who are excluded from the political process or the economic system. He is a global figure, much bigger than just the head of the Church.feedback

Sean Hannity

All you in the liberal media, I am not Fox.com or FoxNews.com, I retracted nothing. For those accusing me of pushing a conspiracy theory, you are the biggest phony hypocrites in the world. If in fact, take Seth out of it, there was a whistleblower within the DNC, a truth-teller that actually was the source for WikiLeaks, and not Russia working with the Trump campaign, these are questions that I have a moral obligation to ask and I will do the mainstream media's job like I have most of my career. I feel so badly for this family and what they have been through and what they are going through.feedback

John Brennan

Frequently, individuals who go along a treasonous path do not even realize they're along that path until it gets to be a bit too late. My radar goes up early when I see certain things – that I know what the Russians are trying to do, and I don't know whether or not the targets of their efforts are as mindful of Russian intentions as they need to be.feedback

John Quinn

He can be aggressive - he's got that in him for sure. He also can be smooth as silk, respectful and deferential.feedback

Ajit Pai - FCC

We are going to take the facts that we find and we are going to apply the law as it's been set out by the Supreme Court and other courts and we'll take the appropriate action.feedback

Tom Cole

The National Institutes of Health is not likely to be cut. I think CDC (Centers for Disease Control) is not likely to be cut. I think that is ill-advised personally.feedback

Hal Rogers

These cuts that are being proposed are draconian. They're not mere savings. They're really deep, deep cuts. We have not yet had a chance to see how (voters) will react to his budget proposals.feedback

Maya MacGuineas

Most of the (budget) cuts will focus on programs for low- income folks and public investments.feedback

John Carter - Travis Perkins

I think we're way over in the number of people who have been able to qualify for food stamps.feedback

David Ignatius

Trump may be following in Nixon’s footsteps, but he could still win the battle for America’s soul.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I just wanted to congratulate you because I am hearing of the unbelievable job on the drug problem. Many countries have the problem, we have a problem, but what a great job you are doing and I just wanted to call and tell you that. We have a lot of firepower over there. We have two submarines – the best in the world – we have two nuclear submarines – not that we want to use them at all. I've never seen anything like they are but we don't have to use this but he could be crazy so we will see what happens.feedback

Kathleen Parker

Bareheaded and beautiful, they made a lasting impression on Saudi women.feedback

Barack Obama

Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country. But part of it is also Democrats not working at a grassroots level, being in there, showing up, making arguments. That part of the critique of the Democratic Party is accurate.feedback

Bill Clinton

People who went and sacrificed and thought it was right, then came home to a culture that said it was wrong. People who opposed the war – though most of us still think we were right – we were World War II babies. We wanted to serve our country; we wanted to be part of patriotic wars; we wanted to believe in sacrifice. We paid quite a price as a generation for the impact Vietnam had on the country.feedback

Timothy Crouse

We just had free run of the place, Hunter especially. They were probably way too transparent for their own good.feedback

Paul Solotaroff

Watching him speak [at rallies], I felt like the Reichstag was burning. He was so comfortable coaxing rage and racism out of people.feedback

Paul Solotaroff

It was clear I hurt him and he felt betrayed. He thought we formed a connection.feedback

Bill Clinton

I have fought more damn battles here for more things than any president has in 20 years, with the possible exception of Reagan's first budget, and not gotten one damn bit of credit from the knee-jerk liberal press. I am sick and tired of it. And you can put that in the damn article.feedback

Al Gore

I was like a lot of guys in that when I came back from Vietnam, I had this pull to go back over there. It's hard to explain. . . . You come back home, and life is not as vivid. . . . Maybe because it was an unfinished experience. . . . I found it quite a growth experience.feedback

Orrin Hatch

Everybody wants to help children. We all believe in that. I think that's a natural bipartisan approach.feedback

Joan C. Alker

There's no question we would make a U-turn on that progress. It's just a question on how sharp a U-turn would be.feedback

Ryan Buchholz

Losing Medicaid, in his case, might have completely changed his life. What does it say that we're cutting off preventive care to kids?feedback

William Baker

Truly, the only word I can come up with is incomprehensible as to why they would zero out a program that has bipartisan support, is clearly science-based and is working.feedback

Andy Harris

There's nothing we need to do. The Chesapeake Bay program has broad support in Congress, and Congress appropriates money.feedback

Scott Taylor

I don't see it as a tough spot. If I agree with the president, then I agree with him. If I don't, I don't.feedback

Chris Van Hollen

We are going to fight them tooth and nail. I think we will be successful in reversing this effort.feedback

Dutch Ruppersberger

It's like motherhood and baseball. It's a resource, it's part of our life. It's part of what we do and what we stand for.feedback

Kim Jong-un

Yes, at the end of the day, the last card, the ace, has to be with China. It's only China.feedback

Faiz Shakir

The budget advances the law-and-order narrative of Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, prioritizing scarce resources for enforcement and prosecution. It includes a $77 million cut to Byrne Justice Assistance Grants, which will mean even scanter resources for right to counsel, diversion programs, and constitutional policing. It also includes a $17 million cut to Second Chance Act grants, which mean fewer resources for communities helping formerly incarcerated persons reenter society.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

Isn't it reasonable for you to at least ask the question, are there people on that program who shouldn't be on there?feedback

Bill Cassidy

I don't think the president's budget is going anywhere.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I had a meeting this morning with President Abbas and can tell you that the Palestinians are ready to reach for peace. In my meeting with my very good friend Benjamin, I can tell you also that he is reaching for peace. He wants peace. Making peace, however, will not be easy. We all know that. Both sides will face tough decisions. But with determination, compromise, and the belief that peace is possible, Israelis and Palestinians can make a deal. I intend to do everything I can to help them achieve that goal.feedback

Mark Sanford

Three percent, I'm not seeing how you get there mathematically. It makes for a make-believe debate that I find frustrating.feedback

John Brennan

I encountered and am aware of information and intelligence that revealed contacts and interactions between Russian officials and U.S. persons involved in the Trump campaign that I was concerned about because of known Russian efforts to suborn such individuals. And it raised questions in my mind again whether or not the Russians were able to gain the cooperation of those individuals. I said that all Americans, regardless of political affiliation or whom they might support in the election, cherish their ability to elect their own leaders without outside interference or disruption.feedback

Dan Coats

Any political shaping of that content would not be appropriate.feedback
