How to use boil down in a sentence?

  1. Cal Jillson:

    What these primaries really boil down to is one issue: Trump versus anti-Trump, there is relatively little talk about the issues for either party. It’s a race to the margins. Democrats are all against the president, while with Republicans it’s about staying close to Trump, and whether that hurts or helps them.

  2. Donald Trump:

    I really believe that the vote that voters make on Nov. 6 is going to boil down to if they vote for a Republican member of the House of Representatives, they're going to vote against impeachment, and if they vote for a Democratic member of the House of Representatives or a challenger, they're voting for impeachment, this is all about impeachment. It always has been.

  3. Prime Minister David Cameron:

    You can boil down all of my negotiations to one word: flexibility. Is this organization flexible enough to make sure that countries inside the eurozone can grow and succeed, and countries outside the eurozone like Britain can find what they need as well, if it's flexible enough, we'll stay. If it's not flexible enough we'll have to ask ourselves a very profound question: is this organization for us?

  4. Uzo Asonye:

    All of these charges boil down to one simple issue : that Paul Manafort lied, paul Manafort placed Paul Manafort and Paul Manafort money over the law.

  5. Vic Berger:

    I like to amplify what's already there and focus on that, like the weird facial expressions and the people behind them. I boil down the candidates almost to their essence, in a way. You can watch a five-minute video of mine and not learn anything about what their policy is. But I think you do get an understanding of what kind of person they might be.
