How to use premise in a sentence?

  1. State Sen. Holly Mitchell:

    It is a classist, sexist, anti-democratic, anti-child, anti-family policy whose premise did not come to fruition, it did not accomplish what it set out to accomplish. So it’s appropriate to take it off the books.

  2. Bill Burton:

    I don't accept the premise that any one of the front-running presidential candidates can beat Donald Trump, if there's nothing more important than beating Donald Trump, we need to be more creative about how to do that.

  3. Anya Kamenetz:

  4. Charles Krauthammer:

    People are looking at it because he's the frontrunner and that was a very nasty question, now, you can explain it away -- if he didn't hear it, then he didn't hear it. Although a lot of journalists did. Second, you can say this is a guy who hasn't done town halls… I believe this is the second one he ever did, and a more practiced politician would have understood, or immediately sort of undermined and denied the premise.

  5. Kirstjen Nielsen:

    I reject that premise. I do not believe we are divided. I believe that the vast majority of us have so much more in common than what separates us, and I know that to be true.
