Serving the people of Illinois. Democratic Whip.
The President’s scorched-Earth trade policies aren’t working, and American consumers are paying the price.
Today marks the 45th anniversary of the Equal Educational Opportunities Act, which prohibits discrimination in our schools. @BestyDevosEd should use this opportunity to recommit to the mission of that bill - ensuring equal participation & an equitable education for every child.
My heart goes out to Officer Ronald Prohasca’s family and friends. This is a tragedy.
When a passenger on their plane had a medical emergency mid-flight, these capable @ScottAFB service members stepped in quickly to help. I’m grateful every day for the service and sacrifices of the men and women in our armed services.
94% of Americans (93% of gun owners) want background checks on every gun sale. Retweet if you do too.
White supremacists were responsible for every incident of race-based domestic terrorism in the U.S. in 2018. Every single one. But for some reason, the DOJ decided not to share this information with Congress despite my repeated requests. Why? There’s no good explanation.
Why won’t Sen. McConnell allow a vote on election security legislation? Ever since 2016, when our top intelligence chiefs urged him to speak up and he refused, he has consistently failed to stand up to Russia’s election interference. Inaction is putting our democracy at risk.
I cannot believe that in the history of the White House, in that Oval Office, any president has ever spoken the words that I personally heard our president speak yesterday. President Trump said things that were hate-filled, vile, and racist. He used those words repeatedly.
