*It’s @realDonaldTrump ’s warped definition of socialism. For the rest of us, it’s just more fascism.

Black women earn just 61 cents for every dollar made by white men. Today, #BlackWomensEqualPayDay , represents how far into the year black women have had to work to earn what white men did in all of 2018. This is unacceptable. Everyone deserves #EqualPayForEqualWork .

Those houses are how small you looked when you let @realDonaldTrump  trash your wife.

We need a ban and buyback of assault weapons and high-capacity magazines: past, present and future. The public wants these weapons gone and it is Congress's job to make that happen. #EnoughIsEnough 

We need background checks. We need a ban and buyback of assault weapons. We need red flag laws. Most of all, we need action from the Senate. Now. #EnoughIsEnough .

Another airport dinner for me and a fellow patron asks the server why she has to pay the 17 cent “employee benefit” on her bill. “That’s my health care,” the minimum wage worker explained. Can’t we do better than this? Should this poor guy have to explain this? #HealthcareForAll 

My colleagues @Ilhan  & @RepRashida  should be allowed to visit #Israel . Democracies don’t ban visiting leaders from other democracies.

#BREAKING Good guys had guns. Over 100 #Philadelphia  officers were on scene trying to take down a shooter firing hundreds of rounds for 7 hrs. 6 were shot. Thank god for our cops but can we cut the bullshit that we are all safer if more non-cops have guns? #EnoughIsEnough 

Keeping the brave law enforcement officers and residents of #Philly  in my thoughts. We are with you.


I’m done listening to lectures about being un-American from the party whose Kentucky senator just blocked a bill to save 9/11 victims.

I quoted @realDonald Trump calling African countries “shithole countries” on the @HouseFloor . @RepDougCollins  formally objected to the Parliamentarian that saying “shithole” is vulgar. He’s right. So why won’t he & @HouseGOP  object to Trump saying it?

Scary. A constituent just confronted me and told me I support open borders. I told her that’s not true and I’ve never said that. She said “ said you do.” Guys, this is what we are up against. We aren’t battling ideology. We’re battling misinformation.

How about this: @realDonaldTrump , if you’re so damn innocent, then why don’t you lift the DOJ ban on indicting a sitting president? If you didn’t do anything wrong, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about, right? #Mueller 

Take this to the bank, : you turn over former U.S. Ambassador to Putin, you can count on me and millions others to swiftly make you an ex-president.

Are you for real? My dad was a cop. I was first in family to go to college. Now I’m in Congress. @realDonaldTrump  was given daddy’s millions. And you’re a felon. Do the math.
