Examples of clearly in a Sentence

  1. George Ciccariello-Maher:

    Trump makes hay out of the fact that white men, in particular, feel as though they’re the victims of this society, despite being in absolute control of it, and this is something that is powerfully dangerous, and it’s why we’re not seeing only the rise in violent attacks, more generally, and the rise of far-right movements, but we’re certainly seeing, you know, clearly, sort of some very serious incidents of mass violence, as well.

  2. Thomas Merton:

  3. Viktor Orban:

  4. Vice President Al Gore:

    I know that many of my supporters are disappointed, i am too. But our disappointment must be overcome by our love of country. And I say to our fellow members of the world community, let no one see this contest as a sign of American weakness. The strength of American democracy is shown most clearly through the difficulties it can overcome. Some have expressed concern that the unusual nature of this election might hamper the next president in the conduct of his office. I do not believe it need be so. President-elect Bush inherits a nation whose citizens will be ready to assist him in the conduct of his large responsibilities. I, personally, will be at his disposal, and I call on all Americans -- I particularly urge all who stood with us -- to unite behind our next president.

  5. Chris Zaccarelli:

    The Fed clearly will not raise interest rates, but I think you will see a slight move in position where The Fed is going to suggest that they are looking to raise rates at least once this year.
