How to use manipulative in a sentence?

  1. Barbara Underwood:

    Our office has zero tolerance for fraudulent or manipulative conduct that undermines our financial markets, financial institutions have a basic responsibility to play by the rules - and we will continue to hold those accountable who don't.

  2. Asra Nomani:

    As an American Muslim parent and journalist who has investigated Islamic terrorism for the past 20 years, it’s offensive, immoral, unethical, manipulative and dangerous, the Virginia Department of Education is woke-washing the 9/11 attacks. Speaker Amaarah DeCuir instructs teachers to erase the fact that the 9/11 hijackers were motivated by an extremist interpretation of Islam. Decuir advises teachers to talk about ‘extremists’ behind the 9/11 attacks, without identifying them as Muslim extremists or calling them out as ‘terrorists.’ It would be like teaching about the Holocaust without discussing Nazi Germany.

  3. John Griffin:

    Manipulation could very well be behind the recent market moves. To act like bitcoin and crypto currency prices are purely driven by supply and demand of little traders... ignores the specific mechanics of this marketplace, it would not be a stretch nor surprising to find that manipulative activity is behind the recent runup when the underlying market mechanics are similar to before.

  4. Barbara Bowman:

    It makes me sick, and it sends a very wrong message about what consent really means, consent is not the absence of a' no.' And when you put drugs and alcohol in the mix, and put a person into a state of impairment and incapacitation where they're not able to respond in a normal setting, it's manipulative. It's diabolical. It's controlling. And it's typical behavior and thinking of a sociopath.

  5. The SEC:

    We will act to protect retail investors when the facts demonstrate abusive or manipulative trading activity that is prohibited by the federal securities laws, market participants should be careful to avoid such activity. Likewise, issuers must ensure compliance with the federal securities laws for any contemplated offers or sales of their own securities.
