For generations, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders have been integral to our nation’s progress—often in spite of mistreatment and discrimination. Today, I'm proud to release my comprehensive policy to address barriers and empower the AAPI community.

When I served, one of the things keeping me safe just as sure as my body armor was the fact that the flag on my shoulder represented a country that kept its word. Our allies and our adversaries knew it, but this president has torn that to shreds. #DemDebate 

Universal health coverage is not a radical idea. Eliminating all private insurance is. No industrialized country has gone that far. This goes further than what is acceptable in Denmark the country. How’s that going to fly in Denmark, South Carolina? #DemDebate 

I’m saddened by the loss of Mayor@justinflippen,  who was so encouraging and kind whenever we saw him. My prayers go out to his family, loved ones, and the city of Wilton Manors. Our communities owe so much to public servants like Justin.

What none of us can live with is four more years of your chaos, cruelty, and division.

While details are still emerging in Milwaukee, this much is clear: We mourn another devastating tragedy. My heart goes out to all who lost loved ones. May we find the strength and will to act against gun violence, and never accept the unacceptable.

This is horrifying. My prayers go out to Alexa’s family, loved ones, and every trans woman who fears they are next. We must put an end to this violence. Mi más sentido pésame. #SeLlamabaAlexa 

We are building a movement based on a new kind of politics—one defined not by who we reject but who we bring along, and one shaped not by looking to yesterday but to our common future. This is our story, our shared vision for the country we love.


My marriage has never involved me sending hush money to a porn star. I’m ready to have a debate with Donald Trump on family values. #CNNTownHall 

Iowa, you have shocked the nation. By all indications, we are going on to New Hampshire victorious. #IowaCaucuses 

Trayvon Martin would have been 25 today. How many 25th birthdays have been stolen from us by white supremacy, gun violence, prejudice, and fear? #BlackLivesMatter 

@AndrewYangVFA  started out unknown, but went on to make a big impact with his campaign built on preparing for America’s future. Andrew, we’ll miss you and #YangGanghe  on the trail, but I can’t wait to work together to help prepare America for the challenges ahead.

The president’s interference with the prosecution of his personal friend, Roger Stone, is dangerous. We can’t afford four more years of corruption.

Barack Obama was an excellent president. What's disappointing is that someone in this race would suggest otherwise.
