Quotes from the news wire:
The People’s Republic of China needs to understand that in America we make decisions about meeting with visitors for ourselves, this is not about the PRC. This is about the U.S. relationship with Taiwan, an ally we are legally bound to defend. The Chinese do not give us veto power over those with whom they meet. We will continue to meet with anyone, including the Taiwanese, as we see fit.
Donald Trump was speaking two days ahead of the Republican primary in Indiana, where the latest polls show Donald Trump holding a double-digit lead over Texas Sen. Ted Cruz. At a rally in La Porte Sunday night, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz urged Indiana voters to help Texas Sen. Ted Cruz deny Donald Trump the 1,237 delegates needed to secure the nomination prior to the Republican convention. I believe in the men and women gathered here and the goodness of the American people that we will not give into evil, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz said at one point. All across this country, millions of Americans right now are praying for you. You’re being lifted up in prayer right now. Any solemnity the occasion had was interrupted by a young boy who heckled Texas Sen. Ted Cruz repeatedly, including with the phrase, You suck ! One of the things that hopefully someone has told you is that children should actually speak with respect.
Withdrawing from NATO would be a catastrophic mistake. It would hand (Russian President Vladimir) Putin a massive victory. It would hand ISIS a massive victory, i think Donald Trump's foreign policy weakness, his isolationism, is frankly to the left of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Neither Obama nor Hillary Clinton advocate withdrawing from NATO.
It is striking that the day after Donald Trump called for weakening NATO, withdrawing from NATO, we see Brussels, where NATO is headquartered, the subject of a radical Islamic terror attack, donald Trump is wrong that America should withdraw from the world and abandon our allies. Donald Trump is wrong that American should retreat from Europe, retreat from NATO, hand Putin a major victory and while he's at it hand ISIS a major victory.
Super Tuesday, one of two things is going to happen. Right now, Donald Trump has enormous momentum. He's won three out of four states, if he continues with that momentum and powers through and wins everywhere on Super Tuesday, he could easily be unstoppable. And I think that would be a grave mistake both for the Republican Party and for the country.
That is an astonishing statement to the millions of Americans who have worked as waiters. Go down to a T.G.I. Friday's, and by the way, this isn't just a waiter anywhere. This is a waiter at a really chichi hotel in Palm Beach. Donald Trump is really maintaining there are no Americans he could find willing to be waiters and waitresses?
They are fighting ISIS right now, they are winning victories right now, iSIS is using American military equipment they've seized in Iraq, and the Obama administration refuses to arm the Kurds, the Peshmerga, fighting forces who have been longtime allies. We ought to be arming them and letting them fight.
You know who one of those millions of Americans who's lost their health care because of Obamacare? That would be me. I don't have health care right now, i had purchased an individual policy and Blue Cross Blue Shield canceled all their individual policies in the state of Texas effective December 31st.
He explained in his views that he was pro-choice, he supported partial birth abortion, open to gay marriage, and his explanation for all that, he said, 'I'm a New Yorker, I'm from Manhattan,' those are the views of New York. Those are what New York values are, they're not Iowa values, but that's 'New York values.' So, that was Donald's explanation of what New York values are. It's how he articulated it.
It is amusing seeing the media elite in New York and D.C. run around with their hair on fire wondering, 'What on earth are New York values?' i'll tell you and the rest of the country, people understand exactly what that is. In South Carolina when I was there, the people there certainly understand it.
Was Secretary Clinton awake or asleep when four Americans were being murdered? We don't know to this day, we do know Hillary told her daughter Chelsea, 'Well gosh, I knew it was a terrorist attack,' while we were out telling the American people it wasn't. You know, I'll tell you, in my house, if my daughter Catherine, the 5-year-old, says something she knows to be false, she gets a spanking.
They go in and fight to give the right to vote to convicted felons. Why? Because the Democrats know convicted felons tend to vote Democrat, and so the media never reports on any of that and doesn't want to admit any of that but you can see in every one of these -- every time there's a terrible crime, they're so excited, 'Come on, please one of these be a Republican so we can try to paint the other side,' it is one of the more egregious examples of media bias but it's something we see over and over and over again.
It's probably one of the biggest disappointments in my speakership, we were so close -- we had an agreement. And two days later, the President walked away from it. It would have saved about $5 trillion over 10 years, it'd have been good for the economy, it'd have been good for our country, it'd have been good for our kids and grandkids. But you know, it's Washington.
Those who are persecuting Kim Davis believe that Christians should not serve in public office. That is the consequence of their position. Or, if Christians do serve in pubic office, they must disregard their religious faith -- or be sent to jail, kim Davis should not be in jail. We are a country founded on Judeo-Christian values, founded by those fleeing religious oppression and seeking a land where we could worship God and live according to our faith, without being imprisoned for doing so.
Part of this Iranian deal was lifting the international sanctions on General Soleimani. The day General Soleimani flew back from Moscow to Iran was the day we believed that Russia used cyber warfare against the Joint Chiefs. We need a new commander-in-chief that will stand up to our enemies and that will have credibility.
The very first step for any deal, good or bad, should be submitting it to Congress, and the President making the case both to Congress and to the American people why this advances the national security interests of the United States, now everything President Obama has said up to this date has suggested that he is going to do everything he can to circumvent Congress.
