President admits he was distracted by impeachment and that impacted his decision making. Fails to mention the 11 rallies and 9 rounds of golf he played.

This virus is insidious. It's my family, it's your family.

Your actions don't just impact you — they impact the people around you.

I'd love to see  #sanctions relief for  #Venezuela. How about first they release political prisoners, free the press, stop oil gifts to Cuba, and agree to a timetable for free and fair elections. Maduro could do all of these things today, right now.  #SinVerguenza
