‘We’re Trying to Find out About a Whistleblower … that Reports Things that Were Incorrect’; President Donald Trump

TRUMP: “We’re trying to find out about a whistleblower. We have a whistleblower that reports things that were incorrect. As you know, and you probably now have figured it out, the statement I made to the president of Ukraine, a good man, a nice man, knew was perfect and is perfect. But the whistleblower reported a totally different statement. Like, the statement was not even made. I guess statement you could say with call. I made a call. The call was perfect. When the whistleblower reported it, he made it sound terrible. And then you had Adam Schiff who, even worse, made up my words, which I think is just horrible, I have never seen a thing like that. Adam Schiff, representative, congressman, made up what I said. He actually took words and made it up.”

Trump urges Ukrainian president to investigate Biden right out in the open, on camera

“No, I want him to do whatever he can. This was not his fault. He was not there. He’s just been here recently. But whatever he can do in terms of corruption, because the corruption is massive. Now, when Biden’s son walks away with millions of dollars from Ukraine and he knows nothing, and they’re paying him millions of dollars, that’s corruption. When Biden’s son walks out of China with $1.5 billion in a fund and the biggest funds in the world can’t get money out of China. And he’s there for one quick meeting and then he flies in on Air Force Two. I think that’s a horrible thing. I think that’s a horrible thing, but I’m going far beyond that. I know the president, and I’ve read a lot about Ukraine, I’ve read about a lot of countries. He wants to stop corruption.”

The Ridiculed: The Nicknames of Trump’s Adversaries

President Trump’s insulting, brutal nicknames for opponents

During his 2016 presidential bid, Donald Trump wielded insulting nicknames to brutal effect. In the primaries, he ran not against Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, or Ted Cruz, but against “Low Energy Jeb,” “Little Marco,” and “Lyin’ Ted.” In the general election, he routinely assailed “Crooked Hillary” Clinton, and won. Trump hasn’t stopped with the epithets since taking office—they’re a hallmark of his rhetorical style. Recently, the candidates vying for the 2020 Democratic nomination have given him fresh ammunition. Bernie Sanders is “crazy,” just as he was in 2016. Amy Klobuchar is a “Snowman(woman)!”; Elizabeth Warren is “Pocahontas.” Joe Biden—whose candidacy has clearly preoccupied Trump—is “sleepy.”
