The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing all of us to change the way we live and work—but doing so will save lives.

America has always been at its best when we pull together in common cause. The challenges we face will require sacrifice, but we all have a responsibility to do everything we can to keep one another safe. If you don’t absolutely need to leave home—don’t.

@CityLittleRock  @WCKitchen , and other local partners have come together with our @ClintonCenter  staff to feed @lrsd  and @pcssdschools  students affected by the school closures in Central Arkansas. I’m grateful to everyone working on this effort.

We all do better when we work together (even when we’re apart).

Happy birthday @SpeakerPelosi , and thank you for your extraordinary leadership.

@MikeBloomberg  @BloombergDotOrgThank  you Mayor Bloomberg. I was proud to talk with this incredible group of mayors who are working so hard on behalf of their communities and our country.

With the passing of Reverend Joseph Lowery, our country has lost a brave, visionary leader in the struggle for justice and a champion of its promise, still unrealized, of equality for all Americans. Hillary and I are grateful for his friendship.

As the numbers continue to rise, we can never forget that there are real people, each with their own lives, stories, families, and friends behind every statistic. My heart is with all those who have lost someone to COVID-19, are fighting the virus, or know someone who is.

While he has been treating patients at his hospital in Northeast Arkansas during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Jared Burks has been living away from his family. Over the weekend, their home was destroyed by a tornado. Please consider giving them your support.

I’m deeply grateful every day, but especially on #NationalDoctorsDay , for the physicians who give their skill, knowledge & care to keep us healthy. Thank you to all doctors & health workers for your extraordinary service & sacrifices on behalf of your patients & your communities.


Even as we protect free speech and assembly, we must condemn hatred, violence and white supremacy. #Charlottesville 

How many more people have to die before we reinstate the assault weapons ban & the limit on high-capacity magazines & pass universal background checks? After they passed in 1994, there was a big drop in mass shooting deaths. When the ban expired, they rose again. We must act now.

Welcome to @Twitter , @POTUS ! One question: Does that username stay with the office? #askingforafriend 

Our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands are in peril. They need our help now.

On this Father’s Day I’m thinking of the thousands of children separated from their parents at the border. These children should not be a negotiating tool. And reuniting them with their families would reaffirm America’s belief in & support for all parents who love their children.

BREAKING: We just learned that the @ClintonCenter  has been bugged.

The heartbreaking violence in Venezuela must stop. I stand with President , the National Assembly, and the people of as the #Venezuela  embrace their right to live in peace, choose their leaders, and decide their future, in harmony with their neighbors.

Walking away from Paris treaty is a mistake. Climate change is real. We owe our children more. Protecting our future also creates more jobs.

Barbara Bush was a remarkable woman. She had grit & grace, brains & beauty. She was fierce & feisty in support of her family & friends, her country & her causes. She showed us what an honest, vibrant, full life looks like. Hillary and I mourn her passing and bless her memory.
