Quotes from the news wire:
Maybe I shouldn't say it, but I'm about to go on one of these Zooms with John McCain's wife, who is -- first time ever -- is endorsing me because of what Cindy McCain talks about with my son and( John), who are heroes, who served their country. You know Cindy McCain said they're losers, they're suckers.
What I came away with was the overwhelming sense of resilience and optimism that they have about the kind of response they're getting, his mom talked about -- my wife asked to say a prayer. And his mom said a prayer. She said,' I'm praying for Jacob Blake and I'm praying for the policeman as well. I'm praying that things change.'.
I want to be very clear about all of this : Rioting is not protesting. Looting is not protesting. Setting fires is not protesting. None of this is protesting. It's lawlessness, plain and simple. And those who do it should be prosecuted, violence will not bring change, it will only bring destruction. It's wrong in every way.
It was an honor to compete alongside one of the most talented groups of candidates the Democratic party has ever fielded and I am proud to say that we are going into this general election a united party, i am going to spend every day between now and November 3rd fighting to earn the votes of Americans all across this great country so that, together, we can win the battle for the soul of this nation, and make sure that as we rebuild our economy, everyone comes along.
There is only one place a complaint of this kind could be -- The National Archives, the National Archives is where the records are kept at what was then called the Office of Fair Employment Practices. I am requesting that the Secretary of the Senate ask The National Archives to identify any record of the complaint she alleges she filed and make available to the press any such document. If there was ever any such complaint, the record will be there.
For a woman to come forward in the glaring lights of focus, nationally, youve got to start off with the presumption that at least the essence of what shes talking about is real, whether or not she forgets facts, whether or not its been made worse or better over time, but nobody fails to understand that this is like jumping into a cauldron.
And we had to put up with the likes of like Jim Eastland and Hermy Talmadge and all those segregationists and all of that. And the fact of the matter is that we were able to do it because we were able to win -- we were able to beat them on everything they stood for, we in fact detested what they stood for in terms of segregation and all the rest.
Now, I know Im not supposed to say it that bluntly, but theyre the facts, theyre the facts. And so everything else we do is in between here. Everything else we do is at the margins. And the reason why I add that parenthetically, why I believe the fence is needed does not have anything to do with immigration as much as drugs.
Folks, I voted for a fence, I voted, unlike most Democrats -- and some of you won't like it -- I voted for 700 miles of fence, but, let me tell you, we can build a fence 40 stories high -- unless you change the dynamic in Mexico and -- and you will not like this, and -- punish American employers who knowingly violate the law when, in fact, they hire illegals. Unless you do those two things, all the rest is window dressing.
I'm not being a wise guy about the wall and the President, all that, for real, my word, but instead of building more barriers, if it's drugs you're talking about, we can take one tenth of the amount of money we're talking about building the wall and significantly increase the technological capability at legal ports of entry because that's where 95 % of all the stuff is coming through.
We've got to get tougher with employers. In fact the person we should send to jail is not the illegals, we send to jail the employers, if you knowingly hire an illegal alien, then you should be held accountable. Because let me tell you, the next person I hear tell me that my labor guys aren't willing to work hard, that's why you have illegals putting up sheetrock, then I want to tell you, you don't know my guys.
Well, I think it's going to have to change somewhat how I campaign. It's just like, you know, the new thing is selfies -- everyone wonders why I take the selfie, so they don't put it on Instagram. So it's not put on -- I mean, if I have the camera, at least I make sure it's a photo and I'm not doing something else, because you know, you have to wonder what everything is being used for. And so it's all changed.
