Examples of Calling in a Sentence

  1. Tom Hanks:

    I am calling you' chosen ones' because you have been chosen in many ways, first, by the temperament and discipline you've lived by, by the creative fires that are inside of you and the instinctive lunges of your desires... You succeeded because of the aid and the love of others that are in your lives, without a doubt. But you have succeeded mostly because you, and you alone, chose to do so.

  2. Brian Su:

    The burden of maintaining peace and stability should not be placed solely on Taiwan, while ignoring the fact that Beijing also has the responsibility, president Tsai has been cautious in dealing with cross-strait relations and has been calling for cross-strait dialogue since she took office. Still, Beijing refuses to resume talks with Taiwan, and continues threatening Taiwan by flying warplanes close to Taiwan's airspace, among other provocations.

  3. Mike Huckabee:

    I mean I remember those press conferences -- the one in Manila and the one in Turkey prior to that -- where you could see the visible, visceral anger this President had as he spoke about Republicans. And he was so frustrated that there was not just a universal acceptance of his point of view about relocation of refugees, calling people who disagreed with him as un-American.

  4. Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop:

    We are calling for calm. The police response should at all times be proportionate, australia plays an important role in supporting PNG but at the end of the day, it's a sovereign nation.

  5. The Texas senator:

    Democrat Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump both were seeking rebound victories Tuesday after recent setbacks. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has complicated Trump's path to the nomination by winning recent contests like Wisconsin and getting allies elected to state delegate slates. On the Democratic side, Sanders had been on a winning streak up until Tuesday – winning seven of the eight prior contests. Whether Donald Trump and Clinton's performance Tuesday will help either wrap up the race in the coming weeks remains an open question. The campaigns head next to five Eastern states that vote next Tuesday : Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Rhode Island and Delaware. It’s potentially friendly territory for the front-runners. But unless Donald Trump can drive Kasich and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz out of the race, the billionaire businessman still may have to fight all the way until the final primary contests on June 7 – especially with an eye toward delegate-rich California, which may end up the determining race – to see if Donald Trump can clinch the nomination with the necessary 1,237 delegates. As of Tuesday night, Donald Trump had 840 delegates. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz had 559, and Kasich had 146. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who infamously panned Trump's New York values earlier in the primary, had been bracing for a tough showing in the Empire State and showed no signs of throwing in the towel. The Texas senator was already looking ahead, turning The Texas senator attention to Pennsylvania, where The Texas senator delivered a speech calling on Americans to join together to move the country forward. It is time for us to get up, shake it off and be who we were destined to be.
