The Trump Admin is intent on making cruelty to immigrants their legacy. They’re now seeking to detain families, including young children, indefinitely in inhumane conditions. The courts should block it. And people of decency and conscience should denounce it.

As long as we are claiming constitutional powers we don't have, I hereby order the President to stop tweeting.

Mr. President, you clearly know very little about people of my faith. We believe politicizing religious belief like this is dangerous and wrong. We value vigorous debate about difficult issues, not ignorance and bigotry. We value basic human decency. An American value. Try it.

Social media platforms and the U.S. government must continue to identify and combat state-backed information operations online, whether they’re aimed at disrupting our elections or undermining peaceful protesters who seek freedom and democracy.

As Trump has alienated so many of our key allies, and brought low our standing in the world, Congress must stand up. Was proud to join Nancy Pelosi at the Munich Security Conference and champion human rights. Showing leadership when the president won’t. That’s @NancyPelosi .

This video is a testament to the rapid advancement of deepfake technology. But beneath the humor, the nearly-imperceptible shifts between faces reveal an undeniable fact: It’s now harder than ever to discern fact from fiction. And that poses a serious threat to our democracy.

I say this to the President, and his defenders in Congress: You may think it’s okay how Trump and his associates interacted with Russians during the campaign. I don’t. I think it’s immoral. I think it’s unethical. I think it’s unpatriotic. And yes, I think it’s corrupt.

The U.S. government is finally open again. RT if you think Congress should pass legislation to prevent future shutdowns.

Mr. President, I see you’ve had a busy morning of “Executive Time.” Instead of tweeting false smears, the American people would appreciate it if you turned off the TV and helped solve the funding crisis, protected Dreamers or...really anything else.

I’ve been on the Intelligence Committee for over 10 years. On terrorism and other threats, I’ve received more briefings from FBI, CIA, and DHS than I could count. How many times have any of them said we need a wall across the southern border? Zero.
