Twitter Media Studio : Today I want to wish everybody a happy Fourth of July weekend. I hope that today, we take a look at where we have come from as a nation, the good and the bad, and where we want to go together in the future.

iPhone : She wants to create millions of good-paying jobs and rebuild our infrastructure and energy systems. She has been one of Trump’s strongest opponents in Congress. Her voice is important as we push forward with the important work of making a more fair and just America for everyone.

iPhone : I’m proud to endorse BonnieWatsonColeman for re-election. Bonnie has always been a strong, progressive voice in the fight for the needs of working families. She understands health care is a human right and the importance of a Medicare for All, single-payer program to cover everyone.

Twitter Web App : The business model of the pharmaceutical industry is unfettered greed.

This is not the time for corporate profiteering of off death and suffering.

We must guarantee that coronavirus treatments and vaccines are free to all Americans.…

Twitter Web App : We need to reduce the military budget by 10% and use the savings to invest in distressed communities around the country that are experiencing extreme poverty, mass incarceration, deindustrialization and decades of neglect.…

Twitter Media Studio : We need progressive leaders like Charles Booker running for office, all over the country, at every level of government. That is how we carry on our movement to build a nation that is based on justice.

Twitter Web App : Rent is due for millions today, at a time when more than 45 million Americans have filed for unemployment.

We need to suspend rent and mortgage payments nationwide.

We also must extend the $600/week expansion of unemployment benefits, which expires at the end of the month.

Twitter Web App : In my view, the time is long overdue for us to take a hard look not only at the size of the Pentagon budget, but at the enormous amount of waste, cost overruns, fraud, and at the financial mismanagement that has plagued the Department of Defense for decades.

Twitter Web App : Thank you Charles Booker for running an inspiring campaign to fight for progressive issues and uplift the working people of Kentucky and the entire country. We look forward to seeing you lead the struggle for justice for years to come.…

Twitter Web App : Congress must ensure that the treatment and the vaccine for coronavirus are free to all Americans. You should not have to go into debt to survive a pandemic.

Twitter Web App : Eugene Victor Debs, union leader and Socialist presidential candidate, was arrested 102 years ago today after he delivered an anti-war address during WWI. In this video, Bernie Sanders, Danny Glover and I discuss what the radicalism of Debs teaches us.

Twitter Web App : More Americans have died from the coronavirus than were killed fighting in World War I.

Tens of millions have lost their jobs and are in danger of eviction.

Now is the time to invest in jobs, education, housing and health care here at home, not a $740 billion defense budget.

Twitter Web App : As a company, Gilead is now worth over $15 billion more than before the pandemic, in part because it expects to make enormous profits by charging over $3,000 for a drug they had already developed years ago.

Their greed must be stopped.…

Twitter Web App : This is a major victory for reproductive rights. The Supreme Court has confirmed it over and over again: the decision to get an abortion is a constitutional right, whether extremist Republican legislators like it or not.…

Twitter Web App : Happy #Pride to our LGBTQ+ family celebrating today. Fifty-one years after the Stonewall uprising, we remember the many LGBTQ+ activists who have fought for justice, equality and civil rights. The struggle continues and we stand with you.

Twitter Web App : Trump denies science. The pandemic spreads. One way to help save lives and prevent illness is for Congress to pass my amendment which calls for the production and distribution of free, high-quality masks for every American household.

Twitter Web App : Just when you think Trump cannot be more vile or racist, he outdoes himself. This morning he shared a video in which a supporter of his yells, "white power." Let us stand together and make certain that this "stable genius" is defeated, and defeated badly, in November.
