How to use forgo in a sentence?

  1. Adam Smith:

    At a time when our nation is hurting the President continues to forgo any effort to calm tensions, as we had all hoped he would. Instead he used force to remove peaceful protesters to stage a photo opportunity. Instead of taking a moment of silence in front of the historic St Johns' Episcopal Church to pray for the lives lost he gathered his cronies to take a picture. Instead of doing the right thing, he once again did the absolute wrong thing, i have serious concerns about using military forces to respond to protestors. The role of the U.S. military in domestic U.S. law enforcement is limited by law. It must not be used in violation of those limits and I see little evidence that President Trump understands this fundamental premise.

This man hadn’t considered any formalities when we assaulted me, and his lawyer didn’t hold back on my mom – why should I be polite? I’m told it was most amount of times the word 'ass' has ever been said in Colorado Federal Court.

  4. Masanori Kuwata:

    Any negative impact to our current situation could have a significant impact on our workforce, because of this, we opted to forgo raising base salaries this year.
