How to use believe in a sentence?

  1. Don Lemon:

    This is an America that can be deeply unfair, where hard work doesnt necessarily pay off, where if you have money, you can buy anything because just about everything is for sale, including integrity for sale, a whole lot of people have real good reason to believe the system is rigged against them. Listen, this is what Donald Trump tapped into. And in a lot of ways, guess what? He was right.

  2. Barack Obama:

    I personally find Holocaust denial deeply offensive, and I absolutely didn’t intend to defend the intent of people who deny that, of course if a post crossed a line into advocating for violence or hate against a particular group, it would be removed. … These issues are very challenging but I believe that often the best way to fight offensive bad speech is with good speech.

  5. A. W. Tozer:
