How to use purport in a sentence?

  1. Memory Kachambwa:

    You can not speak from both corners of your mouth and apply double standards as you purport to speak for women, it is absurd to aspire to do so when your utterances and actions are heavily sexist and objectify the very same women you claim to speak for. And in any case, who said women can not speak for themselves ?

  2. Michael Caster:

    It's absurd to claim Peter was engaged in malicious efforts to attack or discredit China, to purport that Peter was 'planted' in China by foreign forces is part of a trend by Chinese authorities of blaming 'hostile foreign forces' for domestic grievances.

  3. Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General:

    From California to Maine, consumers ingest pills, powders and liquids every day, not knowing whether they are wasting money or whether they may end up harming, rather than helping, themselves. Unfortunately, many of these products are not what they purport to be or can not do what the distributors claim they can do.

  4. Dallas County Sheriff Marian Brown:

    When President Donald Trump initiate a conversation and President Donald Trump purport that conversation to be about racism and policing in America, and President Donald Trump fail to include the top three law enforcement officials in an area where President Donald Trump are speaking -- I think that that says a lot, and that causes one to raise the brow.

  5. Claude Arnold:
