Twitter Web App : Andrea Circle Bear was jailed for a non-violent offense & died from COVID-19 while giving birth on a ventilator. Paul Manafort was released for fears of the virus. AG Barr won’t answer my questions about who's prioritized. We deserve real answers. elle.com/culture/a32947…

iPhone : The number of children getting their routine vaccinations during this pandemic has significantly dropped, including a 70% decrease in measles vaccines in MN.

We cannot make this crisis worse by not getting vaccinated. The Administration must address this.

iPhone : In the United States in 2020, internet should be a basic human right. Especially during this continuing pandemic, we must prioritize access for all communities. Thank you Amy Klobuchar for championing this bill - I look forward to working to pass it through both chambers! twitter.com/whipclyburn/st…

iPhone : In Arizona, Native Americans were forced to travel up to 280 miles to vote. That’s voter suppression. AG Barr must work with Tribal governments on solutions now.

iPhone : There are millions of Americans that are still unemployed and suffering due to the White House’s botched response to this virus. This is not a time for Donald Trump to be taking a victory lap. twitter.com/benpershing/st…

iPhone : The Alec Smith Insulin Affordability Act that Nicole Smith-Holt fought for takes effect in MN today. Nicole lost her son Alec because he rationed his insulin when he couldn't afford it. Now big pharma is suing MN to stop the bill that will help many Minnesotans. It’s disgraceful. twitter.com/aarpmn/status/…

iPhone : Happy 60th anniversary of Somalia’s independence! Today in Minnesota and around the world we celebrate and honor the history and tradition of the Somali community.

iPhone : I want to thank Amy Klobuchar and several other senators for speaking out on the Senate floor today, and for demanding action to ensure fair and safe elections.

As Sen. Klobuchar said, “We would rather put ballots in the envelope than voters in the hospital. It is that simple.” twitter.com/civilrightsorg…

Twitter Web App : But the Trump administration has been seizing tax refunds from borrowers that defaulted on their loans anyway. In a time of crisis. This must stop immediately and funds must be returned.

Twitter Web App : We’re in a pandemic, and during this uncertain time, student loan debt is a huge burden for many Americans. That’s why in the CARES Act Congress included a provision that temporarily suspended the collection of all federally held defaulted student loans.

iPhone : Happy Canada Day to our neighbors to the north!🇨🇦🇨🇦🇺🇸🇺🇸

Let’s remember the banner that hung outside the Canadian Embassy for years and the words that still ring true today: “Friends, Neighbors, Partners, Allies."

iPhone : I’m proud to be leading the Senate version of James E. Clyburn’s #InternetforAll Act that will expand access to affordable, high-speed internet. Too many Americans do not have access to the internet. Let’s get this done. twitter.com/whipclyburn/st…

iPhone : Chris risked his life serving in the military for our country.

While he was serving, he voted by mail. He believes Americans shouldn’t have to risk their lives to vote.

It’s time to prepare for the election. We need to pass my bill that will get it done. twitter.com/capaction/stat…

iPhone : As Marc E. Elias points out, the President’s rhetoric that voting by mail is fraud makes one thing clear: he’s suppressing people’s right to vote.

Our country cannot listen to his lies. Its time to expand early voting and vote by mail.

iPhone : Just spent the last hour w/colleagues on the Senate floor leading effort to call for action to help states run safe elections.

It’s time to expand early voting & vote by mail.

Election Day is 126 days away.

The President can tweet what he wants. The voters want to vote.

iPhone : When it comes to the coronavirus, Americans trust the experts.

And the Trump administration must do the same by actually listening to health experts instead of pushing a misleading narrative that puts the American people in harm's way.

iPhone : Together our country will get through this crisis, but Congress cannot sit idly by and take a back seat. It’s time the Senate takes action on the HEROES Act to help the American people—now.
