Donald Trump curated quote database exceeds 10,000 entries


With media coverage on Donald Trump along with his comments, statements, interviews and barrage of tweets it’s not hard to imagine how many thousands of quotes can be attributed to him. So a resource was created,, that touts itself as the world’s largest collection of quotes about and by “The Donald,” which contains over 10,000 entries with dozens more added weekly. The free database was created as a public service and educational resource. It’s said to be non-partisan, non-profit, does not contain any advertising and quotes are available for “Fair Use.” There’s no sign-up or registration required to use it.

It has a fairly rudimentary database, more or less text only. You can search by keyword, date or by a list of suggestions it offers. One such category which may be of interest is called “Donaldisms,” where you’ll find quotes such as:

“Always borrow money from a pessimist because he will never expect it to be paid back.” (Twitter, Nov. 19, 2013)

“If someone attacks you, do not hesitate. Go for the jugular.” (Think Big: Make It Happen in Business and Life, Nov. 13, 2007)

There are 10 entries if you search for Justin Trudeau, 88 for Canada, 194 for Fake News and 1,022 search results for “Wall,” just to name a few.

Beyond sources quotes, there are also comments and facts.

You can choose to display your results two ways: chronological or reverse chronological order.

The project was founded by Steven C. Markoff, a prominent Los Angeles businessman and philanthropist, who commented on passing the 10,000-quote milestone.

“Having read through thousands of quotes from and about Donald Trump, I feel like I have a better sense of who he is than most people. I still have a lot of questions about Donald Trump. Rather than solely rely on what other people say Trump said, I think it important to read his and related statements directly.”

Curated but Transparent

The organization does not hide the fact the database is curated by a group of in-house staff but  for maximum transparency, it does make it clear that quotes and other data always includes the original source and the date and publication. They go on to say, that according to the methodology, quotes posted are: “intended to shed light on who Donald Trump, his family, friends and associates are, how they think and act, and the positions of social policy they have taken, inferred or may take in the future.”

If you’re doing research or can’t get enough about Trump, you can easily spend hours on this site.
