It is beyond unacceptable that an officer will lose his career, and that America will lose the services of a capable and courageous officer, because of political interference. Donald Trump's disrespect for the military has no bounds. https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/08/politics/vindman-retiring-alleged-white-house-retaliation/index.html

We need a Secretary of Education who actually believes in public education...and public health.

Thank you,  @Ady Barkan—for your courage, thoughtfulness, and leadership. We are united to elect  @Joe Biden in November to advance our shared values and restore compassion to the Oval Office.

.@JoeBiden is everything Trump is not. He has turned loss into purpose: the purpose of public service.

Although he & I have different perspectives on the world, winning this election is essential.

Then we can continue our struggles for justice with a compassionate president.

I'm working on a new book called Trust: America's Best Chance, set to come out on October 6th.  

In order for our country to move forward, it will be more important than ever to build trust—in our institutions and leaders, in each other, and around the world in America itself.

Americans are stepping up to serve amid ongoing crises. Grateful for the bipartisan leadership of Senator  @Senator Chris Coons and others with the  #CORPSAct to transform our national recovery into an opportunity for national service. Congress should act swiftly. https://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-oped-to-heal-america-look-to-national-service-20200706-522bbr...

@Jaime Harrison and  @Cal Cunningham are proving every day, and especially with their strong fundraising last quarter, that there is no such thing as a permanently "red state." Please chip in to split a donation between their campaigns to keep up the momentum: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/wintheerapac-cunningham-harrison?refcode=20200707pbtweet

59 years ago today I was released from Parchman Farm Penitentiary after being arrested in Jackson, MS for using a so-called "white" restroom during the Freedom Rides of 1961.

This is a moment for the USA to be leading the flawed and important  #WHO, responsible for coordinating global public health. Leading. Not leaving.

You may have heard that the US Capitol Building was built with slave labor. That's true.

But what most people don't know is the extraordinary story behind the statue that sits on the top of the dome, called The Statue of Freedom.

This thread is going to be worth your time. 1/17

Indiana must confront the racism that threatens lives even in one of its most progressive cities. This is a moral emergency.

This violent show of racism is absolutely sickening. Something is deeply wrong in Indiana. https://news.yahoo.com/video-shows-black-man-pinned-to-tree-in-what-he-calls-attempted-lynching-at-i...

Vanessa Guillen and her family deserve justice. And all who serve in uniform deserve greater support when it comes to sexual assault and harassment. Congress should launch an independent investigation and take steps so no family faces this kind of news. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/06/us/fort-hood-soldier-vanessa-guillen-remains-found.html

Imagine, for a moment, having a president more concerned with defeating this virus than protecting Confederate statues.

"They're not going to sit idly by and ensure the lines move swiftly. They're recruiting these folks so they go to polls and either intimidate voters, or at a minimum slow the process." —  @Marc E.

Well, meet my likely opponent. I'm a proud first-gen American, daughter of a single mom, and Iraq and Air Force veteran. And unlike him, I'm running in  #TX23 to fight for affordable health care, good jobs, and an economy that works for everyone. Join us: https://secure.actblue.com/donate/trumpvgoj

Tony Gonzales ( @Tony Gonzales) will be a GREAT Congressman for Texas! A Navy veteran, he is Strong on the Economy, Life and the Second Amendment. We need him to defeat the Radical Left in November. Tony has my Complete and Total Endorsement!  #TX23 https://secure.winred.com/tony-gonzales/donate

We can now see the most thorough accounting yet of the ways COVID-19 is disproportionately ravaging Black and brown communities. https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/07/05/us/coronavirus-latinos-african-americans-cdc-data.html

America would be better off if we got rid of the Electoral College.

If you ever find yourself attacking NASCAR from the right, you are wrong. If you find yourself doing so while leading a country through a combination of national emergencies, you are unfit. If you are eligible to vote in November 2020, you know what to do.

This kind of partisanship throws common sense, and American lives, under the bus. Fortunately this Senator is up for re-election, and Iowans can elect  @Theresa Greenfield to replace her this fall.

CNN's Dana Bash: You said in 2014 that Obama showed "failed leadership" with Ebola, when only 2 Americans died. Would you say Trump's showed failed leadership with coronavirus as 130,000 Americans have died?

Sen. Joni Ernst: "No, I think that the president is stepping forward"

Our lives depend on the wisdom and judgment of the President of the United States.

This is how a president should address us this July 4th - with an honest and authentic love for what is best in our country, and a determination to unify Americans to make our union more perfect.

Our nation was founded on a simple idea: We're all created equal. We've never lived up to it — but we've never stopped trying. This Independence Day, let's not just celebrate those words, let's commit to finally fulfill them. Happy #FourthOfJuly!

On this  #IndependenceDay we can commit to achieve, rather than merely assert, greatness for America. That includes delivering for Black and brown Americans a truly equal guarantee of the rights of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

Happy Fourth of July! Help protect our country and wear a mask.

Black families pay more property tax than white families with identically valuable homes. Think about that.
