  • In October 2021, Paxton told a crowd in El Paso, TX that he still believes Trump won the 2020 election, and that Biden's presidency amounts to an "overthrow". [1]

  • "President Trump’s revised immigration order is necessary to protect the homeland from those who wish us harm." [1]

  • "This case is about abusing the power of the subpoena to force Exxon to turn over many decades’ worth of records, so an attorney general with an agenda can pore over them in hopes of finding something incriminating, [It] ... represents an effort to punish Exxon for daring to hold an opinion on climate change that differs from that of radical environmentalists." [1]

  • Before rioters assaulted the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, Paxton spoke at the Trump rally near the White House, saying, "What we have in President Trump is a fighter. We will not quit fighting. We’re Texans, we’re Americans and the fight will go on.” [1]

  • On March 22, 2022, Paxton sent a letter to Austin ISD declaring that Pride Week illegal: "By hosting ‘Pride Week,’ your district has, at best, undertaken a week-long instructional effort in human sexuality without parental consent... Or, worse, your district is cynically pushing a week-long indoctrination of your students that not only fails to obtain parental consent, but subtly cuts parents out of the loop. Either way, you are breaking state law.” [1]

  • "The Texas Constitution clearly defines marriage as between one man and one woman, as Texas voters approved by an overwhelming majority, the law of Texas has not changed, and will not change due to the whims of any individual judge or county clerk operating on their own capacity anywhere in Texas. Activist judges don't change Texas law, and we will continue to aggressively defend the laws of our state and will ensure that any licenses issued contrary to law are invalid." [1]

  • "The federal government does not have the authority to govern the medical profession and set family policies, including what may constitute child abuse in state family law courts, it is time for the Biden Administration to quit forcing their political agenda." [1]

  • "Thanks to the Court of Criminal Appeals’ Stephens v. State decision, Texans will now have to rely on Democrat local officials in blue strongholds to enforce election integrity, we know that will never happen. Not only is the court wrong on the law – in fact, I recently filed a motion for rehearing – but its decision makes it much more likely for the left to steal Texas elections through illegal means." [1]

  • "I will not allow Texans to be coerced into getting a vaccine because the federal government is giving them an ultimatum to choose between their health or their child’s preschool education, these unconstitutional mandates have no place in our country, and they are not welcomed here in Texas." [1]
  • "We’re one of the most generous states in the country for early voting and giving access to voting but the Biden administration is looking to run states." [1] FYI this is objectively false, Texas is amongst the worst states in the U.S. when it comes to voting access/rights. [2]
  • "The decision to openly violate state law and devote district resources to defending Superintendent Martinez's unlawful actions is irresponsible, but if school districts decide to use their limited funding to try to get away with breaking the law, my office will oppose them and uphold the rule of law in Texas." [1]
  • "Today's ruling enjoining Obamacare halts an unconstitutional exertion of federal power over the American health care system while our multistate coalition lawsuit works its way through the courts, our lawsuit seeks to effectively repeal Obamacare, which will give President Donald Trump and Congress the opportunity to replace the failed social experiment with a plan that ensures Texans and all Americans will again have greater choice about what health coverage President Trump and Congress need and who will be President Trump and Congress doctor." [1]
  • In 2022, Ken Paxton, as TX Attorney General, sent a letter to DirecTV urging them to reverse their decision to drop One America News Network (OANN), calling it "highly troubling and disappointing" that they would bow to pressure from "powerful left-wing voices". [1]
