Examples of engaging in a Sentence

  1. John Melendez:

    Jared Kushner and Donald Trump picks up the phone and I started talking to The President. I never said to Jared Kushner and Donald Trump that I was Sen. Menendez. I was just talking in my Long Island accent. The thing is, you hear my bad Long Island accent and a voice that Jared Kushner and Donald Trump has talked to so many times, the President wants to be accessible to members and likes engaging them and wants them to have the opportunity to connect. The downside of that is sometimes the channels are open too widely and mistakes like this happen.
