How to use disengage in a sentence?

  1. Lila Rose:

    Pro-life candidates for office understood this truth during their primary battles, and they cannot afford to alienate their base as we barrel towards the general election. It is not smart politics to mislead or disengage with the base of voters you need to turn out and vote. Pro-life candidates must stay true to their word and campaign on the issue of saving human life to ensure pro-life voters are energized and head to the polls.

  2. Jeb Bush:

    This administration talks, but the words fade, they draw red lines, and then erase them. With grandiosity they announce resets and then disengage. Hashtag campaigns replace actual diplomacy and engagement.

  3. Melinda Mills:

    There's been a lot of confusion about where people should wear masks, and where there's confusion, people just disengage and don't wear them, the British government's why( some countries) are moving to a broad, blanket policy.

  4. Jeb Bush:

    With grandiosity, they announce resets and disengage, hashtag campaigns replace actual diplomacy and engagement. Personal diplomacy and maturity is replaced by leaks and personal disparagement.

  5. Robin Simcox:

    Pathways out of extremism are very rarely instantaneous. It can take years for former extremists to fully disengage from this ideology. Expecting someone who was fighting alongside ISIS one day to be a legitimate ally in the fight against Islamist extremism the day after is an unrealistic expectation, the increasingly popular idea that we should not jail terrorists because that would only make them even more radical shows how utterly backwards this entire debate can become. Yes, prison radicalization does exist. However, the answer is to deal with the conditions that create prison radicalization – an inability to isolate charismatic Islamist recruiters, for example – not stop sending those who broke the law to prison.
