Last quote about Trump Presidency

Donald J. Trump
We're going to see the bipartisan. And Lamar Alexander is working on it very hard from our side. And if something can happen, that's fine. But I won't do anything to enrich the insurance companies because right now the insurance companies are being enriched. They've been enriched by ObamaCare like nothing anybody has ever seen before.feedback

All quotes about Trump Presidency

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

He thought it was respectful and he thought the president did the best that he could under the circumstances to offer condolences on behalf of the country. Just because the president said 'your guy,' I don't think he didn't know his name. He said the hardest job he has is making calls like that.feedback

Xavier Rolet - London Stock Exchange Group

European location policy would fragment global markets increasing risks significantly. It is in our view a political device. Only enhanced regulatory co-operation can protect the taxpayers, enhance financial stability and growth, given the global nature of the vast majority of financial transactions.feedback

Orrin Hatch

No way to pay for it. Oh my gosh, give me a break. I appreciate the innovation and the attempt to do it right. But it doesn't help.feedback

Sarah Sanders

Look, we've said all along that we want something that doesn't just bail out the insurance companies but actually provides relief for all Americans. And this bill doesn't address that fact.feedback

Roger Goodell

We did not ask for that. We spent today talking about the issues that players have been trying to bring attention to – issues to make our communities better. I think we all agree there's nothing more important than trying to give back to our communities and make them better. That was the entire focus of today. Our players will state to you publicly they are not doing this in any way to be disrespectful to the flag.feedback

Tanya Chutkan

The government certainly had no problem taking her against her will to receive pregnancy counseling, which was designed to change her mind. The government didn't seem to have any problem facilitating that.feedback

Whitney Hunter

It felt … like the importance wasn't as dire, like he wasn't acknowledged.feedback

Sheila Murphy

It wasn't a mean letter. I was telling him I know he's a grandfather. I told him I'm trying to be here for my grandkids, but some days I don't want to live.feedback

Xavier Becerra

It's long past time that President Trump learns that he doesn't get to pick what law he follows.feedback

Ali Khedery

Iran is intentionally seeking to challenge and humiliate President Trump only days after the U.S. designated the IRGC. Tehran is testing our resolve, and our allies and foes are all closely watching how this will unfold.feedback

Michael Barbero

This is the first real tangible challenge to the Trump Iran doctrine, and we have our answer: it seems like there is nothing behind it.feedback

Frederic Bastiat

We are suffering from the ruinous competition of a rival who apparently works under conditions so far superior to our own for the production of light that he is flooding the domestic market with it at an incredibly low price [ . . .] This rival … is none other than the sun.feedback

Lamar Alexander

Trump completely engineered the plan that we announced yesterday. He wanted a bipartisan bill for the short term.feedback

Daniel Russel

The DMZ functions as a kind of amplifier. The message takes on a more martial and ominous tone when it comes out of a military command post on North Korea's doorstep.feedback

Bonnie Carroll

While there is no one way to acknowledge the death, what is important for the family is that the President acknowledges the life and service of their loved one, and expresses gratitude on behalf of the nation. We can all follow his example and support these families as they grieve. From our perspective, this has sparked a conversation about how to support all those who are grieving a loss – what is the right way to come alongside a bereaved person and offer compassion and care.feedback

Leo Varadkar

Our corporate profit tax is 12.5 per cent, has been for a very long time through changes of government, through recessions and through periods of growth, and it as much that certainty that is as important to business as anything else.feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

President Trump spoke to all four of the families of those who were killed in action in Niger. He offered condolences on behalf of a grateful nation and assured them their family's extraordinary sacrifice to the country will never be forgotten.feedback

Donald J. Trump

It will get us over this intermediate hump. I am supportive of Lamar as a person & also of the process, but I can never support bailing out ins co's who have made a fortune w/ O'Care.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I'm sure we'll have unanimous support. I have no doubt. Right, Ron?feedback

Donald J. Trump

But I focus on tax cuts because it's such an important weapon to get our country moving.feedback

Leo Varadkar

I can confirm that President Trump's claim that we are proposing to reduce our corporation profit tax to 8 percent is indeed fake news. There is no such plan to do so.feedback

Paul Hickey

Even if the Fed did switch to a Taylor rule-based policy, small changes to the various inputs can create radically different recommended rates. If we do get a Taylor Fed, there's plenty of room for Fed policy to be tighter or looser. Taylor's history suggests he's more likely to be a hawk versus the current baseline, but from where we sit, there's an awfully cloudy view of what happens next assuming Taylor is appointed.feedback

John Higgins

Taylor's rule would still point to a low federal funds rate by past standards, especially if the rule were tweaked to allow for the fact that the 'neutral' level of the rate has fallen.feedback

Joseph LaVorgna - Deutsche Bank

To the extent that the Taylor Rule is built on an assumption about potential GDP, John will be much more willing than some of the other candidates to allow the economy to run at a much faster rate. You could make some very realistic assumptions using the Taylor Rule approach that do not put the funds rate much higher than where it is at the moment. Taylor coming on board could very much be someone who is not anywhere near as hawkish as the market believes.feedback

Paul Hickey

A Taylor Fed may not follow the Taylor rule; as Yellen has shown, there's often a lot of daylight between a given Chair's preferences and actual policy in the modern Fed, and a Fed chair can have a hard time being imperial.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

Individually they may not be a big deal. Even collectively they do not rival President Trump’s domestic and foreign policy demolition derby for the most pressing issues of our time. But Trump’s moral depravity and attack on democratic norms remain critically important, as does the pushback which is thankfully coming with more frequency and rigor than ever before.feedback

Franklin D. Roosevelt

He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die that freedom might live…He lives in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men.feedback

Abraham Lincoln

In this sad world of ours, sorrow comes to all. And to the young is comes with bitterest agony…You can not now realize that you will ever feel better. Is this not so? And yet it is a mistake. You are sure to be happy again…I have had experience enough to know what I say.feedback

Cameron H. Thomas

Politics is politics, and maybe some people wouldn't care to hear from him. But putting politics aside, it does mean a lot to a family, their child.feedback

Donald J. Trump

So they are indeed working, but it is a short-term solution so that we don't have this very dangerous little period – including dangerous periods for insurance companies, by the way. For a period of one year, two years, we will have a very good solution.feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

I think that General Kelly is disgusted by the way that this has been politicized and that the focus has become on the process, and not the fact that American lives were lost, I think he's disgusted and frustrated by that. If he has any anger, it's towards that.feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Just because the president said your guy, I don't think that means that he doesn't know his name. As the president stated, the hardest job he has is making calls like that. I think it is appalling what the congresswoman has done and the way that she's politicized this issue and the way that she is trying to make this about something that it isn't.feedback

Elissa Slotkin

I am out there every day talking with Trump voters. For the first two minutes of the conversation … they think I am a Republican because of my CIA and DOD experience. Then they ask what I am running as. I say I am running as a Midwestern Democrat and that I have worked for Democrats and Republicans proudly. People will then say they consider themselves independent. That's Michigan.feedback

Philip Rucker

[O]fficials said Tuesday that [Trump] was regularly briefed on the incident during that period. They declined to provide details. The White House did not receive detailed information from the Defense Department about the four dead soldiers until Oct. 12, and that information was not fully verified by the White House Military Office until Monday, according to a senior White House official[.] … At that point, the official said, Trump was cleared to reach out to the four families – both in letters that were mailed Tuesday and in personal phone calls to family members that day.feedback

John Thune

I'm hopeful we will be able to find a path forward that will attract some Democrats.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

The latest CNN poll should be a wake-up call for Republicans. Among its findings: President Trump’s approval rating is at a dismal 37 percent, with his disapproval rating reaching 57 percent. It seems that core group, a third of most every poll, is the only segment of the electorate for which he and anything attached to him are not toxic.feedback

Steve Doocy

[Trump] says it one time then immediately corrects himself and says [McCain] was a war hero four times.feedback

Adam Pittler - UPMC Health Plan

We're all aware there was some pent-up demand within the population – maybe a little more pent-up demand than many carriers expected. A lot of carriers might have underpriced in 2014. But that pent-up demand started to go away a little bit. We educated people on how to utilize health care.feedback

Mario Molina - Molina Healthcare

The notion that this is a market-driven phenomenon is ridiculous. This is Donald Trump monkeying around with health insurance, which is something he doesn't understand.feedback

Mario Molina - Molina Healthcare

The president has used this as a club, and he has been beating up the industry with this. It's an even bigger effect than it would have been because of the president's behavior.feedback

Robert Laszewski

If your definition of market stability is an efficient pool giving people the lowest possible rate base, we aren't even in sight. But is there a death spiral? There isn't a death spiral because the subsidies keep the subsidized people in the pool.feedback

Adam Pittler - UPMC Health Plan

We're about able to keep those increases below medical trend. I think carriers have much more experience with this population. The risk pool itself is stabilizing.feedback

Mario Molina - Molina Healthcare

If this was a normal world, where everything was working, you would have single-digit rate increases.feedback

Craig Garthwaite

We have just not done a good job of getting healthier higher income people into the ACA. I have grown increasingly pessimistic that we'll have the non-group market that I thought the ACA would be.feedback

David Anderson

The biggest difference, I believe, is you would have an administration actively interested in making things work and work over the long term.feedback

Larry Levitt

While there clearly were problems with the law's original design, the market has been stabilizing and insurers are now mostly profitable in the ACA marketplace. The problems going forward are now largely a result of uncertainty sowed by the Trump administration.feedback

Kim Cepullio - UPMC Health Plan

For us, our population is starting to stabilize. The elimination of the CSRs has a big impact on our rates next year.feedback

David Anderson

We probably would be seeing rate filings for 2018 … between 5 to 10 percent, on average.feedback

Robert Laszewski

We've got this laundry list of things he has done that has clearly made it worse than if Hillary Clinton were president.feedback

Mario Molina - Molina Healthcare

I think at this point, the experience factor in all of this has improved a lot. Actuaries feel much more comfortable about who the patients are, what services they need.feedback

Tammy Duckworth

I just wish that this commander in chief would stop using Gold Star families as pawns in whatever sick game he's trying to play here.feedback

Jeff Sessions

I don't think there was any discussion about the details of the campaign other than – it could have been in the meeting in my office or at the convention that some comment was made about what Trump's positions were. I think that's possible.feedback

John Cornyn

The president made clear his preference for a bipartisan bill. We're going to give this a try and do the best we can.feedback

Richard Branson - Virgin Group

He invited me to lunch or dinner at his house, and he had just been bankrupt. I thought we would have an interesting conversation about a whole range of issues, and he just spent the whole lunch talking about five people he rung up to try to get help from ... and how these people had refused to help him and how his life's mission was to going to be to destroy these people.feedback

Erik Wemple

Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy is doubtless well-studied on the tensions between President Trump and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).feedback

Patty Murray

I don't respond to the president's tweets. I respond to getting the job done working with Lamar to get this passed.feedback

Lamar Alexander

The president called me 10 days ago and asked me to work with Senator Murray to do this. He called me last Saturday, we talked about it, he called me this morning.feedback

Chuck Schumer

He keeps changing his mind on issue after issue, and that shows an appalling lack of leadership. Now he said today that it would benefit the insurance companies. He ought to read the bill before he tweets.feedback

Paul Waldman

Everybody says they want bipartisan solutions to complex problems, but what happens when a bipartisan solution actually shows up? In Donald Trump’s Washington, the answer is that whether it actually comes to fruition depends on the shifting whims of a president who doesn’t understand the issue and can’t even figure out what he wants to do.feedback

Jeff Sessions

Senator Feinstein, that calls for a communication that I've had with the president and I believe it remains confidential.feedback

John Barrasso

I appreciate what the president has done in terms of executive orders to get the premiums down. Under Obamacare, we knew that premiums were going to go up again significantly this year, because of the way the law was passed.feedback

Bill Cassidy

I don't think it's driving premium increases at all, in a sense that a lot of them already filed their premium increases. They had two sets filed, but it wasn't going to be clear that the payments would be reauthorized. I've been told that if Congress reauthorizes them, then they'll go back to the lower rates – or else, frankly, they shouldn't get the money.feedback

Jeff Flake

They've been going up the last couple years. The mandates, the lack of choices – I mean, that's what always drives up costs.feedback

Diane Feinstein

Did the President ever mention to you his concern about lifting the cloud on the Russia investigation?feedback

Patrick Leahy

I would never accuse you of colluding with the Russians, but you concealed your own contacts with Russians when contacts were of great interested to the committee.feedback

Jeff Sessions

I felt the answer was 'no'. I didn't meet with any Russian about the election.feedback

Mitch McConnell

My goal as the leader of the Republican Party in the Senate is to keep us in the majority. The way you do that is not complicated. You have to have nominate people who can actually win, because winners make policy and losers go home. Our operating approach will be to support our incumbents and, in open seats, to seek to help nominate people who can actually win in November. That's my approach and that's the way you keep a governing majority.feedback

Ali Shamkhani

It has mainly paid lip service, with a few exceptions. It is now stating that it is against the elimination of the nuclear deal by the U.S.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

The Trump administration’s economic ignorance at times seems like quackery. Unlike virtually every credible economic source and policy maven, it asserts that trade and immigration are bad, protectionism is good and gigantic debt doesn’t matter. It perpetuates long-ago debunked tax myths (e.g. tax cuts pay for themselves) and postulates ridiculous levels of growth from a plan that will increase the debt by trillions. But nothing quite tops the latest revelation.feedback

Donald J. Trump

He said, Well, I guess you knew'–something to the effect that 'he knew what he was getting into when he signed up, but I guess it hurts anyway.' You know, just matter-of-factly, that this is what happens, anyone who is signing up for military duty is signing up to die. That's the way we interpreted it. It was horrible. It was insensitive. It was absolutely crazy, unnecessary. I was livid.feedback

Avideh Moussavian

It's much easier to account for someone in an airport who is stuck or turned away than for someone who is told to never show up for a consular appointment at all.feedback

Avideh Moussavian

They've tried to amend each version of it, thinking that will pass legal muster.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Making America Safe is my number one priority. We will not admit those into our country we cannot safely vet.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I didn't think there would be a law to prevent me from bringing my daughter.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The Democrats will only vote for Tax Increases. Hopefully, all Senate Republicans will vote for the largest Tax Cuts in U.S. history. If we get it done, that's a great achievement.feedback

Steve Bannon

These people hold you in contempt. If you saw how they try to rip him apart every day, how they are trying to destroy him every day. And yes, I'm talking about Mitch McConnell and the Senate Republicans.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Some of the people that he may be looking at, I'm going to see if we talk him out of that, because frankly, they're great people. I've had tough primaries almost every time I've run, mostly because of the position I've taken on immigration. People will say, Well I can get to the right of Jeff on immigration.' But we came out all right.feedback

Chuck Schumer

This president keeps zigging and zagging. Our only hope is maybe tomorrow, he'll be for this bill.feedback

Chuck Schumer

The president doesn't know what he's talking about. It helps people who are sick and need health care. It keeps their premiums low.feedback

Bob Corker

He's not on my radar. It's not relevant to what I'm doing.feedback

Steve Bannon

These people hold you in contempt. Note to self, Mitch: Big Luther Strange and little Bobby Corker are both going home. The people of Alabama and the people of Tennessee have spoken.feedback

Frank Bruni

It's invention run amok, marketing gone mad, the odoriferous emblem of commercialism without compunction or bounds. It's the transformation of an illusion – there isn't any spice called pumpkin, nor any pumpkin this spicy – into a reality. Oh, hell, let's just go there: It's Donald Trump.feedback

Greg Sargent

President Trump appears unable to resist getting drawn into public battles involving figures who are far more vulnerable and sympathetic than he is, and true to form, he just used his formidable Twitter feed to escalate the battle over a call to a war widow in which he is alleged to have been insensitive. Trump tweeted early Wednesday morning that the witness to the call had “totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!”.feedback

Hillary Clinton

I thought I was going to win, I thought I'd have the awesome responsibility and great honor of being the first woman president.feedback

Mark Lamping

Similarly, we today can better appreciate how standing for 'God Save The Queen' may have been viewed negatively by our armed forces here in Jacksonville and beyond. As covered during our conversation on Thursday, this was an oversight and certainly not intended to send a message that would disparage you, our flag or our nation. The notion never entered the minds of our players or anyone affiliated with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but today we can understand how the events in London on September 24 could have been viewed or misinterpreted. We owe you an apology and hope you will accept it.feedback

Nikki Haley

President Trump said when he hosted Prime Minister Modi on his visit to the U.S in June that India has a true friend in the U.S and it is a friendship based on shared values. Working at the UN really brings home how important it is for countries to share our commitment to democracy. Countries that honour and respect a voice of their people don't threaten peace and security. But, take a look at the countries that are causing most of the trouble in the world. And you will see countries that don't respect the will of their own people.feedback

Donald J. Trump

If we can't make a deal, it will be terminated and that will be fine.feedback

Laura Tyson

I could not support this package. It's just another version of a supply-side tax cut.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Actually, dishonesty in the media is one of the things that surprised me the most. I thought after I won, the media would become much more stable and much more honest. They've gone crazy. CNN is a joke. NBC is a total joke. You watch what they report, it bears no relationship to what I'm doing. But the media is absolutely dishonest -- and frankly, I've never seen anything quite like it.feedback

Jed York

I haven't talked to Colin recently, but we've had a lot of great discussions. A lot of these discussions started with Colin last year. And I'll say from my own personal standpoint when Colin originally sat, I was taken aback by it. I mean, I felt like a lot of people that have been negative toward sort of the anthem protests. And then I sat down with Colin and I heard where he was coming from and why he wanted to sit. Then he chose to kneel because he felt like it was much less disrespectful to the flag. And I don't believe it was disrespectful to the flag, him taking a knee.feedback

Jed York

I think that our country is more important than a slight economic impact. And I think if we can come together and we can work together in this front, you're going to bypass any economic downturn that you can possibly see because this issue is more important than economics. For the NFL to come out strongly today and have that partnership with our players and start that partnership, I think it shows that. Honestly this is one of the proudest days that I've ever felt being a part of the National Football League.feedback

Jed York

We need to be above it. We need to be above petty attacks from anybody because racial and socio-economic inequality has existed in this country for too long. We need to get the focus on that and we need to make sure that we make progress there …. You've got to block out the noise and you have to go do your job. And that's what we need to focus on. Are people going to slip? Is somebody going to say something or tweet something? Probably. But we can't let that detract from the overall goal of progressing these issues and making sure that we are a unified front with the players.feedback

Frederica Wilson

It's disgraceful for him to even tweet about this, and as I say, this gentleman has a brain disorder and he needs to be checked out.feedback

Joe Biden

Sending his secretary of state to talk with North Korea and saying he's on a 'fool's errand' – it is absolutely bizarre. This is bizarre conduct. We have a President who does not understand governance. This penchant for self-aggrandisement and this penchant for tweeting, this penchant to focus so specifically and eternally on what he does or doesn't do, even if he was right about everything, is sending a message to all of you and sending a message to your younger siblings that is just totally inappropriate.feedback

Frederica Wilson

Sarcastically he said: 'But you know he must have known what he signed up for'. How could you say that to a grieving widow? I couldn't believe ... and he said it more than once. I said this man has no feelings for anyone. This is a young woman with child who is grieved to her soul.feedback

Steve Bannon

The last couple of days Mitch has been saying, Hey you gotta win. Winners make policy, losers go home.feedback

Derrick Watson

[Executive Order 3] suffers from precisely the same maladies as its predecessor: it lacks sufficient findings that the entry of more than 150 million nationals from six specified countries would be 'detrimental to the interests of the United States'. And EO-3 plainly discriminates based on nationality.feedback

Danielle Pletka

I think of the Trump administration as [having] a very scattershot, not principle-driven, not ideology-driven foreign policy. And insofar as things have gotten rolled back, they've gotten rolled back in very nominal ways rather than in meaningful ways that actually reverse the failures of the previous eight years.feedback

Josh Rogin

President Trump is set to embark on a 12-day tour of Asia, by far the longest and most consequential foreign trip of his young presidency. Before he leaves, he might want to appoint an Asia policy team to make sure the countries of the region know his government is ready to engage them seriously.feedback

Montel Williams

There is a special place in hell for people like @realDonaldTrump who disrespect the widow of a fallen hero.feedback

Chelsea Clinton

Mrs. Johnson, I cannot begin to imagine your loss. Your family & all who mourn Sgt. Johnson are in my prayers & those of countless Americans.feedback

Rand Paul

I've told my leadership, I've told the president ... and I said look, I'm all in, I want to be supportive, I'm a yes vote, but we have to obey our own rules.feedback

LeBron James

I'll foul the s*** out of him. I would give him all six fouls. I'd foul the s*** out of Bronny, man.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

We will look at this and say, was there something we have to adapt to now? We're not complacent. We're going to be better.feedback

Frederica Wilson

Well I guess he knew what he signed up for. But when it happens, it hurts anyway. They were astonished. It was almost like saying, You signed up to do this, and if you didn't want to die, you shouldn't have signed up. It's so insensitive. He should not have said that. He shouldn't have said it. Sgt La David Johnson is a hero. Donald Trump does not possess the character, empathy or grace to be president of the United States.feedback

Roger Goodell

We spent today talking about the issues that our players have been trying to bring attention to. About issues in our communities to make our communities better. Today's discussion with our players was very productive and very important. It reflected our commitment to work together with our players on issues of social justice. Our players are men of great character. They have a very deep understanding and tremendous knowledge of the issues that are going on in all of our communities, and their commitment to addressing these issues is really admirable.feedback

Brett Shumate

The president is engaging in ordinary business transactions, not in exchange for anything.feedback

Wyn Hornbuckle - Department of Justice

The United States is not a safe haven for fugitives from any nation. We value our strong law enforcement relationship with Brazil. As a matter of policy, the department does not comment on specific extradition processes, but we are committed to working together on these matters.feedback

Stephen Jones

It's a very short-sighted approach to negotiations, but I recognise that in certain markets it's the political reality.feedback

Stephen Jones

We detect some degree of political will in certain parts of continental Europe in order to reclaim what they perceive to be 20 years loss of wholesale financial services to the London market. It's a very short-sighted approach to negotiations, but I recognise that in certain markets it's the political reality.feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

I'm not going to get into the back and forth. I think that the sentiment of the President was very clear. He took the time to make a call to express his condolences, to thank the family for this individual's service. And, I think, frankly, it is a disgrace of the media to try to portray an act of kindness like that, and that gesture, and try to make it into something that it isn't.feedback

Frederica Wilson

So in other words, when you sign up when you go into the military, you are really signing up to die. That is not what you say to a grieving widow, a woman who just learned that her husband cannot have an open casket funeral. In fact, she will probably not even be able to see his body.feedback

Frederica Wilson

Myeshia, the entire time, was in a ball, rolled up almost like in a fetal position crying. What he said was, I guess he knew what he was signing up for but it still hurts.' That's how he said it.feedback

Frederica Wilson

He calls her at the same time every morning, even from Africa, to tell her he loves her.feedback

Eric T. Schneiderman

President Trump's abrupt move to cut these subsidies is reckless, dangerous, - and illegal. These payments are vital to thousands of New Yorkers and millions of Americans who rely on them to afford their health care. Yet President Trump is using those families as political pawns, putting their lives at risk to advance his own partisan agenda. We won't stand for it – and we're moving to block these dangerous cuts before they do any more harm.feedback

Donald J. Trump

ObamaCare is a broken mess. Piece by piece we will now begin the process of giving America the great HealthCare it deserves!feedback

Donald J. Trump

The timing is right. I have had people on both sides – and I promised not to mention the name of the people on the other sides, or names – but a lot of people are liking this very much, and I think we're going to have tremendous support. It's really tax cuts and reform, but I focus on tax cuts because it's such an important weapon to get our country really moving. We're going to restore America's competitive edge, rebuild America's middle class – very much aimed at the middle class – and renew the promise of the American dream.feedback

Frederica Wilson

Yeah, he said that. To me, that is something that you can say in a conversation, but you shouldn't say that to a grieving widow. That's so insensitive.feedback

Doug Andres

The speaker does not see anything that changes his view that the Senate should keep its focus on repeal and replace of Obamacare.feedback

Tom Cole

None of our guys voted for Obamacare. They're not very interested in sustaining it.feedback

Lamar Alexander

He wanted to be encouraging about the bipartisan agreement that Senator Murray and I announced yesterday.feedback

Lamar Alexander

The president engineered the bipartisan agreement by calling me and asking me to work with Senator Murray to do it. I've talked with him three times in the last 10 days about it.feedback

Lamar Alexander

What do you do in the meantime? What you don't want to do in the meantime is create chaos and hurt millions of Americans.feedback

Mitch McConnell

We're going to get this job done, and the goal is to get it done by the end of the year.feedback

Paul Bledsoe

Resentment toward an insult-hurling, free-riding U.S. president is sure to boil over. Trump is going to be vilified in no uncertain terms.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values. And something I've said so much during the last two years, but I'll say it again as we approach the end of the year. You know, we're getting near that beautiful Christmas season that people don't talk about anymore. They don't use the word 'Christmas' because it's not politically correct. You go to department stores, and they'll say, Happy New Year' and they'll say other things. And it will be red, they'll have it painted, but they don't say it. Well, guess what? We're saying 'Merry Christmas' again.feedback

Derrick Watson

In other words, the categorical restrictions on entire populations of men, women, and children, based upon nationality, are a poor fit for the issues regarding the sharing of 'public-safety and terrorism-related information' that the President identifies. This leads to absurd results.feedback

R. Martin Chavez - Goldman Sachs Group

These things are great – if and when they happen – but they're not embedded in any of our plans.feedback

Brian Moynihan

They continue to look forward to continued implementation of a pro-growth agenda.feedback

Leon E. Panetta

The most important test is whether it comes from the heart. It's not so much whether he decides to do a letter or a phone call. You don't do this by the numbers. You do it by what you think can most appropriately reflect the nation's concern.feedback

Norman Eisen

It's terribly unfair that Mr. Trump can enter the competitive arena for his businesses, restaurants, hotels with the advantage of being able to provide White House platforms for his businesses, in violation of the Constitution.feedback

Ivan Gabal

When you put data in front of him and say, You're not right. The situation is different,' he'll look at it. And accept it. He's not stupid.feedback

Barack Obama

I'm grateful to (at)SenJohnMcCain for his lifetime of service to our country. Congratulations, John, on receiving this year's Liberty Medal.feedback

Hillary Clinton

Diplomacy, preventing war, creating some deterrents is slow, hard-going, difficult work. And you can't have impulsive people or ideological people who basically say, Well, we're done with you.feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

The President's travel will underscore his commitment to long-standing United States alliances and partnerships, and reaffirm United States leadership in promoting a free and open Indo-Pacific region.feedback

Ivanka Trump

It was a shock and I was distraught. Mom had no idea who Kurt Cobain was, and she sympathised only so much.feedback

Ivanka Trump

During my punk phase in the nineties, I was really into Nirvana. My wardrobe consisted of ripped corduroy jeans and flannel shirts. One day after school, I dyed my hair blue. Mom wasn't a fan of this decision. She took one look at me and immediately went out to the nearest drugstore to buy a $10 box of Nice'n Easy. After twenty-four hours of my crying inconsolably in my room, alone - major melodrama - Mom had to pull me out of there to go down to dinner.feedback

Ivanka Trump

That night, she forced me to dye my hair back to blond. The colour she picked out was actually three shades lighter than my natural colour … and I have never looked back! After twenty-four hours of my crying inconsolably in my room, alone - major melodrama - Mom had to pull me out of there to go down to dinner.feedback

Steve Schmidt - Edelman

There is no issue too small for him to comment on. He tweets at all hours of the morning and night on every conceivable subject. He has time to insult, to degrade, to demean, always. But once again, you see this moral obtusity in the performance of his duties as commander in chief.feedback

Leon E. Panetta

Somebody screwed up here, okay? You don't let that amount of time pass when our men and women in uniform have been killed.feedback

Eliot Cohen

If Franklin D. Roosevelt had personally contacted the family members of every service member who fell in World War II, he would have been so overwhelmed emotionally he could not have made any decisions.feedback

Peter Wehner

Part of being a president is at moments being pastor in chief, dispensing grace and understanding and giving voice to sorrow, tragedy and loss. But he's a person who's missing an empathy gene.feedback

Claire McCaskill

There certainly will be a vehicle by the end of the year. We're going to have several must-pass things at the end of the year, if we can't do it before.feedback

Stephen J. Ubl - Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America

We need to ensure the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has sufficient controls and authorities in place to prevent illicit diversion of controlled substances.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think we'll have a lot done. We need some votes from some of the Republicans that for some reason they weren't there on healthcare. They should have been. We thought we had it, but John McCain voted no, which was a shocker.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Lamar has been working very, very hard with the Democratic – his colleagues on the other side, and Patty Murray is one of them, in particular. And they're coming up and they're fairly close to a short-term solution.feedback

Lamar Alexander

I'm grateful to the president for encouraging me on two occasions and phone calls to try and get a bipartisan agreement with Senator Murray. He said he didn't want people to be hurt during these next two years, while we're arguing about the long-term direction of health care in the country.feedback

Malcolm Jenkins

We all have mutual interests. … We want to make sure that the quality of product that we put out on the field is great, but at the same time we have a responsibility to the communities that we live in and the communities that we come from.feedback

Taran Killam

And he says [to SNL creator Lorne Michaels], You know, Lorne, if I don't win this thing, I'm gonna be fine. We just bought this beautiful piece of property in Scotland. If I have to be president, I'm never gonna see that thing. And that that was his priority in that moment, that that was even a consideration, made me sad.feedback

Taran Killam

It certainly feels like there's some hypocrisy there. I guess you could say, Oh, they're righting wrongs.' And I don't even think it's righting wrongs. I think the show tries to – and in particular, Lorne's outlook is – play to both sides. Play to the masses, play to whatever the popular opinion is. But, boy, they could definitely mine some comedy out of owning up to it, huh?feedback

Patty Murray

We are ironing out a few of the last details right now but I am very optimistic that we will be able to make an announcement with all the details very soon.feedback

LeBron James

... It pops in my head a few times here, a few times there. I mean, it's just human nature. I think that had a lot to do with race at that time.feedback

Natasha Stoynoff - People Magazine

That early incident was the first time a man who possessed fame, authority or power attacked me. It wouldn't be the last.feedback

Natasha Stoynoff - People Magazine

He "answered the door of his suite wearing only … a bathrobe. Before I even sat down, he dropped his robe, grabbed parts of me he shouldn't, and said: 'I'm going to f–k you so hard, you'll scream like a whore,' . More than 30 years and a thousand celebrity interviews later, that actor's searing words are still branded in my memory. Reading the horror stories accusing Harvey Weinstein of summoning young, aspiring starlets to his suite and greeting them in his robe revived that memory.feedback

Natasha Stoynoff - People Magazine

We are not afraid anymore, and there is no room in this world for men of this ilk. In the battle between the new sisterhood and the Old Boys Club we're taking names, we're speaking out, and we're going to kick ass.feedback

Natasha Stoynoff - People Magazine

This actor was an early, painful lesson about the way some powerful men abuse their power. Like many women, my life has been riddled with experiences of sexual misconduct by teachers, doctors, bosses and more.feedback

Chris Plante - The Verge

People have to be careful because at some point I fight back. I'm being very nice. I'm being very, very nice. But at some point I fight back, and it won't be pretty.feedback

Tom Marino

As a former prosecutor who has dedicated my life to aggressive and faithful enforcement of our laws, I have reached the difficult decision that the best course of action is to remove the distraction my nomination has created to the utterly vital mission of this premier agency. At the same time, given my lifelong devotion to law enforcement, I insist on correcting the record regarding the false accusations and unfair reporting to which I have been subjected.feedback

Leon E. Panetta

I just think it demeans the presidency when you use John Kelly and his son, both of whom are patriots, to back up his excuses for whatever happened. I just think it creates a sense that there is no sacred ground for this president.feedback

Robert Lighthizer

Trade deficits do matter and we intend to reduce them. It is unreasonable to expect that the United States will continue to encourage . . . U.S. companies to invest in Mexico and Canada primarily for export to the United States.feedback

David Ignatius

The president heads to Asia in November. Here are some things his hosts can note in their preparations for his visit.feedback

Douglas Chin

This is the third time Hawaii has gone to court to stop President Trump from issuing a travel ban that discriminates against people based on their nation of origin or religion. Today is another victory for the rule of law. We stand ready to defend it.feedback

Cliff Kupchan - Eurasia Group

Oil importers in Europe, South Korea, and Japan will also likely decide against purchasing Iranian oil. But it is far less likely that China or India will acquiesce to a U.S. demand to significantly reduce, or halt, their imports.feedback
