@Donald J. Trump’s energy plan puts America first. Joe Biden's energy plan puts giveaways to Joe Biden's crooked friends first. It's Solyndra on steroids.

.@VP joined our Congressional Delegation, @Coach_EdOrgeron, @LouisianaGov, Key members of the @whitehouse Coronavirus Task Force, state legislatures, & leaders of LA's higher education institutions to discuss the importance of reopening our schools this fall at every level.

Cuomo may not take protecting seniors in nursing homes from COVID-19 seriously—but @realDonaldTrump’s administration does.

Today’s announcement of increased testing for seniors and staff in nursing homes nationwide is a game changer.

We MUST safely re-open our schools this fall.

→ Students need it to happen: their educational, developmental, and social needs depend on it.
→ Working parents need it to happen.

Getting kids back in the classroom is critical to getting America back on its feet.

Don't let Joe Biden tell you his energy plan is moderate. He had Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez write it—that should tell you all you need to know. Their radical plan = higher energy costs. Higher energy costs = a hidden tax on low income families.

Disgusting to watch Cuomo laughing on late night TV & bragging about his COVID response when he has the highest death toll in the nation—including 6,000+ seniors killed by his nursing home policies. What a slap in the face to families who lost loved ones. https://nypost.com/2020/07/13/jimmy-fallon-welcomes-gov-cuomo-during-first-show-back-in-studio/

The evidence—scientific, health and economic—argues overwhelmingly for schools to open in the fall https://on.wsj.com/3gYLgNE

Excited to join  @Vice President Mike Pence  @Mike Pence in Baton Rouge today to discuss the plan for safely re-opening America's schools. It can be done—and it's absolutely critical to keeping our students on track and getting our country and economy working again. This shouldn't be a partisan issue.

You know Cuomo’s nursing home scandal is bad when even Democrats in the New York State Legislature are holding hearings to investigate the thousands of seniors killed on his watch. This is just the beginning. He won’t get away with this.

NEW: The New York State Legislature will hold public hearings on how  @Andrew Cuomo Administration handled State-regulated nursing homes during the outbreak. More than 6,000 seniors died from  #coronavirus. The hearings will be held August 3 & 10 Part of series of Covid hearings.

What a joke. Cuomo will say anything to try to pin his own COVID scandal on  @Donald J. Trump. Let’s review what happened on Cuomo’s watch: – 6,000+ nursing home deaths – 500% more nursing home deaths per capita than Florida – 50%+ New York COVID deaths a result of local failures

"Trump’s COVID scandal makes what Nixon did at Watergate look innocent. Nobody died in the Watergate scandal. Thousands of people are going to die in this COVID scandal." -Gov. Cuomo

Last week Cuomo shamelessly tried to blame nursing home staff for the thousands of deaths his own orders caused by putting out a phony report with shady data. Republicans in Congress exposed him. This isn’t over—we won’t stop until he’s held accountable. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/congress/exclusive-in-letter-to-cuomo-scalise-blasts-dubious...

✍️  @Steve Scalise to Cuomo: “blame-shifting, name-calling and half baked data manipulations will not make the facts or the questions they raise go away." Grieving families deserve answers and, rest assured, we will not give up until we get those answers. https://www.propublica.org/article/andrew-cuomos-report-on-controversial-nursing-home-policy-for-cov...

ICYMI: RM  @Steve Scalise "sent a scathing letter to Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, accusing him of producing a faulty report that deflected blame from his administration for thousands of coronavirus nursing home deaths." https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/congress/exclusive-in-letter-to-cuomo-scalise-blasts-dubious...

NEW: Cuomo keeps trying to dodge accountability for his deadly nursing home order. This half-baked report is just the latest attempt. Blame-shifting, name-calling and faulty data won't make this go away. Grieving families deserve answers & we won't give up until we get them.

Here is the senior Democrat lawmaker refusing to uphold the law and not taking a stand against violence and vandalism. Last I checked, vandalism is a crime. The anarchists should be condemned and held accountable.

Dear Speaker Pelosi: 

The mob violence against people and property must end, and law and order must be restored.

As Governor Cuomo releases flawed data and passes the buck on his own failed policies,  @Steve Scalise is holding his feet to the fire Readmitting COVID-positive patients into NY nursing homes was a disastrous decision that he must be held accountable for.

NEW: @SelectGOP RM @SteveScalise dismantles the numerous flaws and highly suspicious claims in the Cuomo administration's report about nursing home deaths.

"This flawed use of data incorrectly colors every assertion made in the report."

EXCLUSIVE: “In addition to being dubious on its face, this conclusion was reached through a flawed methodology."  @Steve Scalise sent a scathing letter to  @Andrew Cuomo, accusing him of producing a faulty report that deflected blame from his administration. https://washex.am/2ZdZsMQ

🚨🚨 NEW: I just sent a letter to Cuomo exposing his phony nursing home report. Blaming other people and putting out flawed data to cover up the deaths caused by his own policies won’t make this go away for him. We won’t let him get away with it.

Absolutely shameful. Violent far-left mobs across the country are undermining the rule of law. Members of the people's house should be condemning mob rule, not excusing it.

Reporter asking about Christopher Columbus statue in Baltimore: "Shouldn't that be done by a commission or the city council, not a mob in the middle of the night throwing it into a harbor?"

Speaker Nancy Pelosi: "People will do what they do."

It’s called vandalism. It’s a crime. It should be prosecuted.

The Speaker of the House is now condoning violent far-left mobs destroying cities. Will the media ask every House Democrat if they agree with their Speaker saying violent mob rule is now acceptable in America?

As a mother and a former teacher, I know firsthand students rely on their schools for sense of purpose, vital nutrition, and a place of stability. That is something worth fighting to protect. It’s time for students to return to the classroom. https://www.columbiatribune.com/opinion/20200708/itrsquos-time-for-students-to-return-to-classroom

After ordering patients who tested positive for  #COVID19 back into nursing homes, Governor Cuomo is blaming nursing home workers for his failures. New Yorkers deserve answers, and House Republicans won’t stop fighting until we get them. https://republicans-energycommerce.house.gov/news/governor-cuomo-cant-pass-the-buck-on-his-deadly-mi...

It took a President like  @Donald J. Trump to finally get a historic trade deal out of Mexico that puts American workers first.  #USMCA is a big win. 🇺🇸🇲🇽

We are building a powerful economic and security partnership with Mexico—addressing complex issues that had been unresolved for many years.

Dr. Tedros must testify under oath and provide  @Select Committee Republicans with a forthright response on the origins of this virus:

"Until you appear under oath, America and the world will not know the origins of this crisis."

@SteveScalise, @RepJamesComer, @Jim_Jordan, @RepBlaine, @RepWalorski and @RepMarkGreen demand answers on false China info WHO gave to Congress.
