On race: “The places where I would be most critical of the president would be in matters that were divisive, that appeared to be appealing to racism or misogyny. And those are the kinds of things I think that have been most, most harmful long term to the foundation of America’s virtuous character.”

On Trump’s personal life: “He has elements, I’m sure, of honor in his life. And there’s things that I think are not honorable. And I mention that because of the payment to a porn star for sexual relations outside of marriage. Look, I’m one of those who believes that we have a responsibility to be honorable and faithful to our wives.”

On calling on China to probe Joe Biden: “We certainly can’t have presidents asking foreign countries to provide something of political value. That is, after all, against the law.”

On abandoning the Kurds: “A very dark spot in America’s history. We should never abandon our friends.”

Comparing Trump’s actions to Barack Obama’s ignoring the red line he drew in Syria: “This is worse than that, because it says … America will walk away from his friends and from its allies.”
