United States Senator from South Carolina
Stopped by Vital Aging in Kingstree today on the way back home to Charleston — loved getting to chat with everyone about what’s going on in Washington!
On this #MLKDay , we look to Dr. King in our pursuit of a more civil and fair America—an America where one’s race, gender, or zip code does not dictate their opportunity. We must put aside our differences and commit to unity over division.
I spoke at the U.S. Conference of Mayors Winter meeting today about #OpportunityZones , and I’m thrilled to see so many mayors from across the country support this effort to help those most in need!
The House Democrat impeachment resolution says 11 times there is “overwhelming” evidence against the President...but we’ve yet to hear it (hint: because it’s not there). @SenJohnBarrasso and I talking on our dinner break about the charade this has become.
You mean...besides growing up in a poor single parent household where we had to use the oven to heat the house? Or when we couldn't afford Christmas presents? Or when I owned 4 shirts total?
Some in our party wonder why Republicans are constantly accused of racism — it is because of our silence when things like this are said.
This is a plan we can be proud of because it speaks to the hearts of everyday, hardworking Americans! And I am proud to say that our #TaxReform package includes my bipartisan #IIOA , which will help distressed communities all over the country. Today is a great day.
A secure border is one of the defining characteristics of any nation. We are a country with a big heart, but we are also one of laws. Democrats need to come to the table and end this shutdown instead of letting their distaste for the President drive them away from real solutions.
I grew up in a single-parent household, w/ a mom who worked 16 hours a day I know what it feels like to live paycheck to paycheck. I know what it feels like when you’re hopeless. I can relate, and I feel your pain. I see you. We see you. #TaxReform
Earlier this afternoon in HELP Committee I discussed censoring conservative views. Russians trying to influence our elections? Kick them off. People trying to incite violence and hate? Goodbye. But They are hardly "unsafe to the community".
After being briefed by the FBI today and having the opportunity to read the report myself, I am now even more confident in Judge #Kavanaugh ’s nomination and fitness for the court. (1/2)
