Quoted @CNN

President Trump has announced that the United States will terminate its relationship with the World Health Organization, a move he has threatened throughout the coronavirus pandemic

Trump’s Tantrum Diplomacy is eroding U.S. credibility on the international stage. Withdrawing from @WHO during a global pandemic is a recipe for disaster and increases the cost of the American response. We must instead rally the world to confront COVID-19.

If we are complacent, if we are silent, we are complicit in perpetuating these cycles of violence.

None of us can turn away. We all have an obligation to speak out.

 60,541  2,769  12,186

You can't defeat bigotry; it only hides. And when leaders give it oxygen — as Donald Trump has done — it comes roaring back.

We all have a moral obligation to stand up, speak out, and hold people accountable.

Today, in lifting our ambitions and our imaginations to the heavens, the United States has once more reshaped the future of space travel.

 17,316  1,169  3,305

Every day that Donald Trump spends in the White House, he further debases the values and ideals of our nation. He is wholly unfit to be president.

 48,123  2,270  11,230

This is no time for incendiary tweets. This is no time to encourage violence.

This is a national crisis — and we need real leadership right now.

 214,970  15,051  32,632

We are a country with an open wound.

None of us can turn away. None of us can be silent. None of us any longer can hear those words — “I can’t breathe” — and do nothing.

We must commit, as a nation, to pursue justice with every ounce of our being.

 56,179  2,936  13,165

It’s time for us to take a hard look at uncomfortable truths.

It’s time for us to face the deep, open wound we have in this nation.

We need justice for George Floyd.

Tune in as I address the unfolding situation in Minnesota and the killing of George Floyd:

 31,319  3,397  8,321

This is not abstract: a black reporter was arrested while doing his job this morning, while the white police officer who killed George Floyd remains free. I am glad swift action was taken, but this, to me, says everything.

 76,586  1,554  12,480

I will not lift the President’s tweet. I will not give him that amplification. But he is calling for violence against American citizens during a moment of pain for so many. I’m furious, and you should be too.

 153,116  4,345  27,165

I will be speaking more about the events in Minnesota later today.

 73,334  3,075  7,078

Enough.

Quoted @NPR

COVID-19 is killing black Americans at a rate three times higher than white people – and it's most likely costing them their ability to recover from this economic crisis. From @planetmoney, how this health crisis is only making racial disparity worse.

We can’t allow this crisis to exacerbate the disparities that plague our nation.

 26,977  1,902  5,125

We’re months into this crisis, and Donald Trump still doesn't have an effective national testing strategy.

I do:

 39,184  2,806  9,235

Ordinary people doing extraordinary things. That's the story of America — and we’re seeing it written every single day. It gives me hope.

 13,074  734  3,793

100,000+ lives lost across the country.
1,700,000+ confirmed U.S. cases.
40,000,000+ unemployment claims filed.

Donald Trump has failed our nation.

 139,599  9,212  28,878

Today, we learned that another 2.1 million people filed for unemployment last week, bringing the total number of new claims since this crisis began to more than 40 million. It's just the latest evidence of Donald Trump’s utter failure of leadership.

 24,103  2,442  6,608

Thirty years ago, I proudly cosponsored the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act. It was an enormous step forward, but there's more work to do. So today, I’m releasing my plan to achieve full participation and equality for people with disabilities:

 23,165  1,092  5,583

I can’t believe I have to say this, but please don’t drink bleach.
