How to use come up in a sentence?

  1. Jason Clampet:

    Expedia will have a lot more sway going in with hotels now and saying ‘ give us this preferred position, ’ but hotels can still sell their product on their own. It’s not like a milk company that has to rely on a store to sell the milk for them. They can just sell direct to consumers. And a larger brand like a Hilton or a Starwood or a Marriott has other distribution methods. They’re in a better position to negotiate than they have been before, and they’ve also come up with ways to give consumers incentives to book directly with them.

  2. Rick Perry:

    , Rick Perry suggested Donald Trump with swing state-voters is a headline grabber not a problem solver. ‘ For the last 14 years, I’ve had to live in the real world and deal with real world issues and come up with real world solutions.

  3. Lenore Skenazy:

    We've been encouraged in our society to do what I call worst-first thinking, which is come up with the worst-case scenario first and proceed as if it's likely to happen, and that's what happened with The Meitivs, someone sees two children alone, and they leap to' Oh, my God, they're neglected. What if they're run over by a Mack truck ? What if they're kidnapped ? There are predators all around.'.

  4. Barack Obama:

    In all my conversations with senators from both parties in which I asked their views on qualified Supreme Court nominees -- this includes the previous two seats that I had to fill -- the one name that has come up repeatedly, from Republicans and Democrats alike, is Merrick Garland.

  5. John Hyten:

    And if it’s illegal, guess what’s going to happen? I‘m going to say, ‘Mr. President, that’s illegal.’ And guess what he’s going to do? He’s going to say, ‘What would be legal?’ And we’ll come up with options, of a mix of capabilities to respond to whatever the situation is, and that’s the way it works. It’s not that complicated.
