How to use robber in a sentence?

  1. Donald Tusk:

    If someone says I will lend you money but please give it back to me in the future, that person is not a ruthless robber, and it's not true (that) debtors are always moral and creditors are always immoral.

  2. Dan Newman:

    Silicon Valley provides a literal and metaphorical wealth of support for candidates. It's a community of people focused on the future, and of course, to paraphrase (bank robber) Willie Sutton, it's where the donors live.

  3. Kevin Brady:

    The super rich? They don't pay this tax. They have a legion of lawyers and tax planners. They have charitable trusts and foundations, these are family-owned, hard-working, risk-taking, determined Americans who are building their business, their farm, their ranch. These are not, as we will hear today, the Paris Hiltons and robber barons of the Teddy Roosevelt days.

  4. Clive Staples Lewis:

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

  5. Josh Hawley:

    We ought to break them up, at the end of the day, here's the deal: The last thing America needs is another Big Tech robber baron who doesn't care anything for free speech, and that's exactly what Twitter is giving us.
