The real question isn’t who is or isn’t a racist—the question is who is or isn't doing something about it. As president, I will create an office in the White House to deal with the problem of white supremacy and hate crimes.

Tonight, I shared my vision for our country—it's the same one I've had for two decades. My entire career I've run toward big problems and accomplished things that people said were impossible—and every time, it was through uniting folks around a common purpose to get the job done.

If you take one thing away from tonight's #DemDebate ...

The test of America right now? It’s not a referendum on Donald Trump—it’s a referendum on who we are and who we’re going to be as a people. #DemDebate

So grateful for the opportunity to share my vision for how we can build a more fair and just country for all Americans during last night's #DemDebate . I truly believe at my core that when we join together and work together, we will rise together—let’s get it done.

We have had more people die due to gun violence in my lifetime than in every single war we've been involved in, starting from the Revolutionary War, combined. As president, I will lead a movement for major reform of our gun safety laws. We can’t let this bloodshed continue.

I’ve heard story after story about how farmers are struggling to survive because of corporate concentration in the ag sector. We need policies that support family farmers & ranchers—that’s what I’ve fought for in the Senate & will fight for as president.


The president is weak. And wrong. White supremacy is not a mental illness, and guns are a tool that white supremacists use to fulfill their hate.

These are the 4 documents marked committee confidential that I brought up in my questioning of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh last night -->

The Trump administration posted an unsearchable pdf of the Mueller report so it would be harder for you to read. We made it easier. Here’s a searchable version:

What you do matters. What you say matters. No matter how big the fight Or inevitable the conclusion seems Stand up. Speak up. Wrong, temporarily victorious Is never greater than Right, forever vigilant.

I’m running for president. Join me on this journey.

The fact that Kavanaugh believes that a President should not be subject to civil litigation or criminal investigation while in office means that Trump just nominated a justice who has already reached conclusions on these serious questions. That should raise enormous red flags.

Robert Mueller’s statement makes it clear: Congress has a legal and moral obligation to begin impeachment proceedings immediately.
