Every American citizen deserves justice under the law.

A  #PPPloan enabled a woman-owned  #smallbiz in  #Jupiter  #Florida to rehire all its employees & offer free house cleaning services for first responders.  #PPPworks  #smallbizbigimpact

My bipartisan bill increasing flexibility for the #PPP is on its way to @realDonaldTrump's desk.  This is about relief for small businesses and workers.  I’m glad to get it done.

Yesterday, the Senate passed the  #PPP Flexibility Act of 2020. Here’s what you need to know: - The loan forgiveness period for  #smallbiz has increased from 8 to 24 weeks - Now 60% must be on payroll - The rehiring deadline is extended from June 30 to December 31, 2020

Great to see  @SpaceX complete another successful launch from  @NASA's Kennedy Space Center Space Center in  #CapeCanaveral tonight. Sen Rubio recognizes the importance of public-private partnerships in the  #spaceindustry & is committed to strengthening them through his American Space Commerce Act.

Liftoff!

In the wake of last night's demonstrations, there are numerous instances of vandalism to sites around the National Mall. For generations the Mall has been our nation’s premier civic gathering space for non-violent demonstrations, and we ask individuals to carry on that tradition.

Conference Chairman @SenJohnBarrasso:

Peaceful protests are important and necessary.

But these peaceful protests have been hijacked by violent criminals.

They dishonor the memory of George Floyd and the cause for which the protesters first took to the streets.

Senate Republicans stand with those *peacefully* protesting the murder of George Floyd.
 
Peaceful protest is in the fabric of America & is how social change occurs.
 
But riots + violence only create more pain.
 
It destroys neighborhoods & hurts innocent people.

IT MUST STOP.

Right now, we can’t hear the peaceful protesters’ voices over the sounds of shattering glass and splintering woods.
 
Violence is not the answer—we need to come together, lift each other up, and ensure justice is served.

You do not advance peace by committing assault. 

You do not advance justice by inflicting injustice upon your neighbors. 

You do not promote the rule of law through anarchy.

I saw the video.
 
George Floyd was murdered.
 
It’s heartbreaking.
 
Peaceful protest is the right of every American.
 
But the rioting and looting must stop. 

And it must stop today.

I spoke to many local law enforcement leaders today. They’re working hard to protect peaceful protestors and our communities and deserve our absolute thanks and respect. Violence against them is unacceptable. We need unity, not more violence.

Our nation is hurting.

George Floyd’s death was horrific and justice must be served. A single act of violence at the hands of an officer is one too many. 

George Floyd deserved better. All black Americans do. Indeed, all Americans do.

Right now our communities are hurting, and engaging in rioting and looting is not helping solve the problem. It’s time to stop fanning the flames of violence so our country can begin to heal.

There must be justice for George Floyd. Right now, we have to work together with our friends and neighbors—as one nation—toward solutions to these recurring cases. These Iowans have found a place to start.

Racial discrimination has absolutely no place in our country. The senseless murder of  #GeorgeFloyd is unacceptable & those responsible should be held accountable. We need to do our part to change these attitudes that exist, but at the same time, we need to do so in a peaceful way

If you are a non-violent protestor, selflessly saying “enough is enough”...we admire and respect your vigilance. It’s what we need.

For those that believe violence is a way to take advantage of this situation...we can’t tolerate that.
