How to use straighten out in a sentence?

  1. President Trump:

    He made such a fool out of himself. What people dont report is the letter he had to do to straighten out his testimony because his testimony was wrong, but Nancy Pelosi... doesnt talk about it.

  2. Donald Trump:

    I had the good sense to leave Atlantic City, which by the way, Caesars just went bankrupt. Every company — Chris [Christie] can tell you — every company virtually in Atlantic City went bankrupt, i left Atlantic City before it totally cratered, and I made a lot of money in Atlantic City, and I'm very proud of it.... By the way, this country right now owes $19 trillion. And they need somebody like me to straighten out that mess.

  3. Communication Minister Rudiantara:

    Google has an office in Indonesia, but digital age transactions do not go through that office. That is what we're looking to straighten out.

  4. President Trump:

    All I can say is, our Justice Department and our FBI, at the top of each because inside they have incredible people, but our Justice Department and our FBI have to start doing their job and doing it right and doing it now because people are angry, what’s happening is a disgrace. And at some point, I wanted to stay out, but at some point if it doesn’t straighten out properly, I want them to do their job, I will get involved and I’ll get in there if I have to.

  5. President Barack Obama:

    Have you noticed that everyone of these candidates say, 'Obama's weak. Putin's kicking sand in his face. When I talk to Putin, he's going to straighten out,' then it turns out they can't handle a bunch of CNBC moderators at the debate. Let me tell you, if you can't handle those guys, then I don't think the Chinese and the Russians are going to be too worried about you.
