Honesty is the axis on which leadership spins.
I truly do believe, if all of us do all that we can, that we will once again, in our time, restore the sanctity of life to the center of American law.
I'm a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order.
The quickest way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

  • Further, [President Clinton's] repeated lies to the American people in this matter compound the case against him as they demonstrate his failure to protect the institution of the presidency as the 'inspiring supreme symbol of all that is highest in our American ideals'. Leaders affect the lives of families far beyond their own 'private life.'


  • Just because I’m a-clappin’ for it, doesn’t mean I’m a-votin’ for it.
  • As a conservative who believes in limited government, I believe the only check on government power in real time is a free and independent press. A free press ensures the flow of information to the public, and let me say, during a time when the role of government in our lives and in our enterprises seems to grow every day--both at home and abroad--ensuring the vitality of a free and independent press is more important than ever.


  • We cannot have four more years apologizing to [America's] enemies and abandoning our friends. America needs to be strong for the world to be safe, and on the world stage, Donald Trump will lead from strength.
  • Donald Trump and I believe that Captain Humayun Khan is an American hero and his family, like all Gold Star families, should be cherished by every American. Captain Khan gave his life to defend our country in the global war on terror. Due to the disastrous decisions of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, a once stable Middle East has now been overrun by ISIS. This must not stand. By suspending immigration from countries that have been compromised by terrorism, rebuilding our military, defeating ISIS at its source and projecting strength on the global stage, we will reduce the likelihood that other American families will face the enduring heartbreak of the Khan family.
  • There's a reason why people question the trustworthiness of Hillary Clinton, and that's because they're paying attention.

  • I truly do believe, if all of us do all that we can, that we will once again, in our time, restore the sanctity of life to the center of American law, I just know in my heart of hearts that this will be the generation that restores life in America.
  • Honestly, my focus is completely on the progress we're making, we fully support the decision that was made regarding that employee.

Quotes about Pence[edit]

  • Mike Pence did an incredible job, and I'm getting a lot of credit because that's really my first so-called choice.
  • Mike is intensely loyal. That’s a virtue. He has never uttered to me one syllable of disagreement with the president. And frankly, I admire him for that.
    • Jeff Flake, on Pence and his relationship with Donald Trump — [13] (January 3, 2018)
  • We’ve taken different paths, but I’m not trying to suggest that mine is a more virtuous path than his. He’s in a position with considerably more power than I have, and there’s something to be said for that.
    • Jeff Flake, on Pence and his differing opinions regarding Donald Trump — [14] (January 3, 2018)
  • Mike Pompeo and Vice President Pence, they both long for the rapture, for the end times, for Jesus coming down to the Earth and killing all the unbelievers with his flaming sword. This is what they are all about. This is why they allowed the embassy to move to Jerusalem. Go back and check the remarks that were made at that time, the prayers that were given and so forth. This is, in a word, a very different U.S. administration, but in the same hands of the military-industrial complex, of the national security state, of all the people who want warfare to be the raison d’être of this empire at the same time.
