Examples of rejection in a Sentence

  1. Harlem Desir:

    We believe that the racist remarks, anti-Semitic remarks, spread through the Internet today or in other media do not fall in the category of expressing an opinion, rather there should be law that allows for us to suppress a rejection of others and a call for violence and a call for death.

  2. Ed Kranepool:

    As you get closer to 80 they’re going to say you’re too old, there’s more chance of rejection, that type of thing, so my doctor says now is the time.

  3. Agnese Ortolani:

    The comedian capitalized on a broad rejection of the country's political elites and Mr Poroshenko's widespread unpopularity among the electorate, mr Zelenskiy's policy platform — beyond a focus on anti-corruption issues and a broad, pro-Western agenda — remains unclear.

  4. Judge Carlos A. Samour Jr.:

    The jury was not able to return the sentencing verdicts you were hoping for, it feels like rejection. It feels like you were asking for something and were rejected. It feels like defeat.

  5. Charles Krauthammer:

    I think this argument between him and the Wall Street Journal over what is essentially two percent of the rate, I think it's slightly overexaggerated. It's not going to make any difference in the real world if there's a one or two percent lower rate, and I think what's he's doing is trying to win votes with the sweetener of the child tax credit, there's nothing wrong with that. And it's true that a pudding has to have a theme, but a tax plan doesn't have to have a theme. The theme here is that you're lowering the rate, particularly on the corporate side. You're lowering the tax on investment and return, capital gains, which is what everybody on the right has always said is the engine to drive growth. So, you've got very serious pro-growth elements in here, and you've got a sweetener for the child tax credit, that that's a rejection of Reaganism I find slightly over the top.
