  • Social media data should be protected at the same level as medical data - it includes sensitive information about our daily lives, relationships, health and finances. As president, I’ll make sure that your personal privacy is protected.
  • LA Memorial Coliseum honors those who fought & died in WWI. The proposal to rename it after United Airlines dishonors those who put their lives on the line for our country. I support the veterans mobilizing to fight the name change
  • Neocons Bolton, Pence & Abrams miscalculated at every step in attempting regime change in Venezuela. The Venezuelan people have seen the devastating impacts of US intervention in Latin America for decades - they need real solutions, not political theater.
  • Trump is for socialism when it comes to taxpayers underwriting military contractors and arms manufacturers. The same money would create more jobs used for rebuilding our country’s infrastructure and green economy, and it would be better for humanity.
  • Coral reefs are a vital ecosystem on the front lines of climate change's devastating impacts. We can’t afford to sit back & watch them die. My OFF Act will ensure a 100% transition from fossil fuels to clean and renewable energy to achieve
  • If we treat people like animals in prison & force them to do dehumanizing things to survive that environment, we perpetuate violent behavior & increase recidivism. Goal of our prisons should be to help ppl become more caring, develop respect & compassion
  • 1 in 3 women in this country are subjected to domestic violence. I was proud to cast my vote today to pass the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act to close gaps in the law and provide resources to help survivors heal and rebuild their lives.
  • Finally. Today we passed legislation to end US support for Saudi Arabia’s genocidal war in Yemen that has killed tens of thousands and caused the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.
  • Our infrastructure is crumbling. We need leadership that puts , to end regime change wars, the new Cold War and arms race, and keep the money in people’s pockets and/or rebuild our country’s bridges, airports, roads, sewer lines, etc.

    Inspiration from a remarkable Nobel Laureate: Martin Luther King Jr. King was assassinated on 4 April 1968, but his non-violent fight for freedom, justice and human rights are just as topical today as they were then.
  • Oil lobbyists have “unprecedented access” to Trump’s administration—meanwhile Pence/Bolton continue their crusade for regime change in Venezuela, the world’s richest oil reserves. The height of swamp politics.
  • We must stand united against neocons/neolibs who drag us from one regime change war to the next, exacerbating the New Cold War, bringing us closer to nuclear war. We must redirect our precious resources to rebuilding our infrastructure, Medicare for All, a green economy, & more.
  • 61,029! Our success isn't driven by mainstream media coverage, celebrity influencers or establishment networks. It's driven by you. Thank you.
  • Central America asylum seekers pose serious challenge—our response must enforce border security, be compassionate, & work to solve root problem which has been exacerbated by decades of US exploitation & regime change wars. Closing border not the solution
  • TV talking heads love trying to goad Trump into going to war w/ Russia. Here’s just one example: is trying to get Trump to prove he's not guilty of appeasement by going to war with Russia over Venezuela.
  • [4/4] …that means sacrificing the wellbeing of our country, then that’s the price he’s willing to pay. A true leader is willing to make personal sacrifice for the wellbeing of our country. Trump is willing to sacrifice the wellbeing of our country for his own selfish interests.
  • [3/4] Trump’s closing the border isn’t because he cares more about security than trade, as he falsely claims, but rather it’s because he wants to prove to his base of supporters that he is tough on immigration. But all he cares about is his political interests, and if…
  • [2/4] …and advanced nuclear tech to Saudi Arabia, the world’s biggest spreader and propagator of terrorist/radical jihadist ideology; selling F-35 fighter jets to Turkey, etc. These examples expose the lie.
  • [1/4] President Trump just said he might close the border even though it will be damaging to our economy, claiming that "safety & security is more important to me than trade.” Really? Selling hundreds of billions in arms sales…
