Make that a threefer.

The President's lead advisor on immigration views it as a positive benefit if a policy can hurt the US higher education industry, which is exactly what today's announcement from ICE will do.

This is a twofer: Trump screws over foreigners who dare compete with Americans *and* pressures universities to put on a happy face and open classrooms this fall.

This is bad. ICE just told students here on student visas that if their school is going online-only this fall, the students must depart the United States and cannot remain through the fall semester.

Donald Trump has harassed, abused, assaulted and denigrated women for years.  

And laughed about it. It's disgusting.

This is our new video.

It deals with some of Trump's horrible history with women and explains what needs to be done to end his abuse forever.

He never cares who is hurt as long as he gets his way. See ⤵️ https://twitter.com/Teri_Kanefield/status/1280166218087845888 They want all non-Americans out. (He wants everything to open as usual, even as the virus surges. Schools closing will wreak havoc with the economy because parents, too, need to be home.)

Two comments: 

I see it as part of the cultural war against immigrants. 

Also, retaliation against schools and colleges going online,  which Trump thinks is being done to hurt his chances for reelection. He wants us to pretend all is normal even as people die by the thousands. 2

 @Justin Wolfers Cruelty is the point.  @Teri Kanefield care to comment?

244 years after America declared independence from a tyrant, Trump behaved like a racist tyrant himself and accused his critics of being un-American while engaging in the most un-American behavior imaginable: Refusing to protect American lives. https://rantt.com/trump-unpresidented-week-180-russia-covid-19-july-4-racism

Soviet Govt response after Chernobyl: “the radiation level is absolutely safe to people’s health. On the country’s western border, radiation level is within the limits of the natural background.”

@Kayleigh McEnany: "I think the world is looking at us as a leader in COVID-19”

We jail & imprison people for conduct that stems from abuse & trauma, and then abuse and traumatize them in jail & prison instead of helping them at all. https://twitter.com/zoepulitzer/status/1279951900906082304?s=21

 @Scott Hechinger An overwhelming majority of women behind bars, cis and trans, have experienced domestic and/or intimate partner violence. This trajectory from abuse to arrest to incarceration is utterly unjust and fails so many families and communities.

We must Abolish ICE. Pass it on.

Retweet if you want to see Trump’s tax returns.

Keep hearing Trump has been great for the economy from Trumpers. 30+ million unemployed. 11%+ unemployment. Covid-19 has 🎆 in multiple States. Trump is 100% to blame for a pathetic initial response & reopening the country too soon. Our economy sucks.

NEW: Trump's NLRB is considering killing a legal doctrine that has protected unions since FDR was president. The request came from the National Right to Work Committee Legal Foundation...in a union's dispute with a Trump megadonor. https://tyt.com/stories/4vZLCHuQrYE4uKagy0oyMA/dAkWUd1m1fkOUQywkERhU

 #COVID cases in Canada are down 82% from their peak.  #COVIDー19 cases in Italy are down 97% from their peak.  #CoronaVirus cases in New Zealand are down 100% from their peak. The  #CoronavirusPandemic in the USA is higher than ever and out of control. That's the Trump Virus.

I get so anxious seeing people gathering with family & friends (even only a few) without masks. The only reason businesses are open is because the government thinks business is more important than our health & lives. There’s no vaccine or treatment. The pandemic isn’t over.

My friend & former  @US Labor Department Secretary  @Robert Reich is right:  @OSHA_DOL abandoned workers by refusing to issue an Emergency Temporary Standard for COVID-19. The Senate needs to pass  @Sen. Tammy Baldwin &  @Tammy Duckworth’s bill to make OSHA implement workplace safety rules for the pandemic.

Former U.S. Labor Secretary Robert Reich says the U.S. government and OSHA are dropping the ball right now when it comes to protecting American workers.

The fact that Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans are trying to ram through a $740 billion defense bill, but ignoring legislation to provide housing and food relief to Americans as the pandemic worsens tells you all you need to know about their priorities.

United States: 4 percent of the world's population. 24 percent of the world's wealth. 14 percent of world's carbon emissions. 25 percent of the world's Covid-19 cases. 25 percent of the world's Covid deaths.

Robert Reich wrecks Trump's propaganda of a rapid economic recovery.

The death rate from Covid-19 in Navajo nation is now higher than any single state. We should all be outraged by the suffering and neglect continually inflicted on Native peoples.

What's a "fair" economy and how do we create one? Good stab at an answer here (including, modesty aside, a piece by yours truly): https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/opinion/america-inequality-coronavirus.html#three

Trump was so intent on having a good economy by election day that he resisted doing what was necessary to contain the virus. Now, instead of the economy roaring back, infections are roaring back. http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/jul/05/donald-trump-reopen-america-covid-19-coronavirus

In this pandemic, the wealthiest 113 New Yorkers have over $500,000,000,000 (more than a half trillion). Meanwhile, more than 2 million New Yorkers are waiting in line at food banks for up to 6 hours in order to feed their families. This is the stuff revolutions are made of.

Your reminder that America's richest 1 percent now own half the value of the U.S. stock market. The richest 10 percent own 92 percent. So when Trump says the stock market is the economy, know who he's really talking about.

So let me get this straight: Extending additional unemployment benefits to out-of-work Americans during a pandemic will make them lazy and lead to socialism, but trillions in bailouts to Wall St. bankers and corporate execs is good for the economy?

We face a similar situation with testing. A great leader would make sure tests were available for everyone. A good one would at least take accountability. A bad one would take mine.

A great leader would procure masks for every American. A good one would require mask use. A bad one doesn’t care.

Trump wants Americans to get back to work to spur a recovery to spur stock market growth to spur his re-election. That much he’s clear on. But to the extent he ever tried, he has now completely quit on us.
