You know how you can tell that your vote is important and will matter in this election? Because Trump and the Republican Party are trying to stop you from voting. Don’t let them get away with it.

This is what voter suppression looks like. In the year 2020, people shouldn't have to wait in line for 5 hours to exercise a constitutional right to vote. We need federal law which respects democracy and makes it easy to vote in every state and end all forms of voter suppression.

Together, we will defeat bigotry and create a nation that works for all of us. Join our live town hall now with @RashidaTlaib , @IlhanMN , @keithellison , @AbdulElSayed  and more:

Let me be as clear as I can be. Despite what Trump's extreme, right-wing Supreme Court nominee may believe, it is women, not the government, who have the right to control their own bodies. Abortion is a constitutional right — period.

Trump is lying again about COVID-19. Last night he said; "What we’ve done has been amazing, and we have done an amazing job, and it’s rounding the corner.” The truth: His policies have given us the highest per capita COVID death rate of any major country.

Together, we can win Michigan, defeat Donald Trump, and create a country that works for all of us, not just the 1%. Join me and @RashidaTlaib  this Tuesday, October 20 for a virtual town hall with special guests. Watch at .

The real looting in America is 644 billionaires becoming $931 billion richer during a pandemic, while Republicans continue to deny 25 million+ unemployed Americans the $600/week they need to pay for rent & put food on the table. We need an economy that works for all, not the 1%.

More than any other group of people I can think of, it has been the Native American people who have told all of us that you cannot go to war against the environment and expect to have an environment that’s supportive of us.


I am once again asking you to wear a mask.

Donald Trump believes climate change is a hoax. Donald Trump is an idiot.

Trump just had peaceful demonstrators viciously attacked. No, Mr. President. This is not a dictatorship. This is the United States of America. Our citizens have a constitutional right to peacefully protest. It's called the First Amendment.

Let us go forward together. The struggle continues.

Once a vaccine for coronavirus is developed, it should be free.

Mr. President: You attack “socialized medicine” every single day. Well, let's be clear. The excellent care you received at Walter Reed was at a 100% government-funded, government run hospital. For Trump, "socialized medicine" is bad for everyone but himself. Total hypocrisy!

What a hypocrite. Elon Musk has received billions in corporate welfare from U.S. taxpayers. Now he wants to stop 30 million Americans who lost jobs from receiving $600 a week in unemployment benefits, while his wealth has gone up by $46.7 billion over the past 4 months. Pathetic.
