How to use leader in a sentence?

  1. Donald Trump:

    The President's the leader of Saudi Arabia. They've been a very good ally.

  2. Michael Madden:

    This is a man who might provide some tactical advice to the leader but is otherwise a message bearer with little negotiating or policymaking latitude, instead, they put in someone like Kim Hyok Chol to insulate Choe Son Hui and more substantive diplomatic personnel, to a certain degree he is expendable and his superiors are not.

  3. Charles Scicluna:

    Every demand and petition must be sent to him who as the leader of the church ... has jurisdiction.

  4. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu:

    I didn’t retract any of the things I said in my speech six years ago, calling for a solution in which a demilitarized Palestinian state recognizes a Jewish state, i said that the conditions for that, today, are not achievable for a simple reason: Abu Mazen, the leader of the Palestinians, rejects consistently the acceptance of a Jewish state. He’s made a pact with the Palestinian terrorist organization, Hamas, that calls for our destruction. And the conditions in the Middle East have changed to the point where any territory we withdraw from is immediately taken up by Iranian-backed terrorists or by ISIS.

  5. William McRaven:

    Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation, if William McRaven think for a moment that William McRaven McCarthy-era tactics will suppress the voices of criticism, William McRaven are sadly mistaken. The criticism will continue until William McRaven become the leader we prayed William McRaven would be.
