The first thing you learn in the White House is that a president’s words have the power to send armies marching and markets tumbling. We saw that again today. Thru his recklessness, this @POTUS  may actually TWEET us into a recession!

Join me in wishing Justice Ginsburg a speedy recovery. Now more than ever, she is desperately needed on the Supreme Court. Her grit and determination should be an inspiration to us all.

The inaction and denialism of Trump and Bolsonaro are threatening not just our lives, but also future generations. Americans and Brazilians must come together to defeat these rightwing demagogues and act immediately to save the planet—our only home—from climate catastrophe.

By averting climate catastrophe we will save $70.4 trillion over 80 years. A #GreenNewDeal  is the only economic and the moral choice.

No one should *ever* be fired because of who they are and who they love. We need a president who supports the Equality Act and we need her now.

Our economy is showing signs of weakening due to the president’s trade war, and these back-and-forth tariffs will only make things worse. We can’t afford these self-inflicted wounds any longer. President Trump should end this trade war today.

Yesterday I was in Paradise, California, a town nearly destroyed by a wildfire that killed 86 people. Climate change is making these fires worse. From a moral perspective, we have no choice but to act. We need bold action and a Green New Deal.

“Some of Mr. Trump’s advisers privately expressed concern that the ferocity of Mr. Trump’s response could derail the negotiations permanently and could unsettle supporters during an election year.”
