Domestic right-wing terrorism is completely incompatible with American values. It is a threat to American safety and security. In a Warren administration, we will use every tool we have to defeat it. Here’s my plan to address white nationalist violence and associated acts of terror.
Lynching is a horrific stain on our country's history, and it is beyond disgraceful for Donald Trump to invoke one to avoid being held accountable for his crimes. Nobody is above the law, not even the president of the United States.
The Trump administration is arguing that the Supreme Court should undo the progress we've made and let employers fire LGBTQ+ people because of their gender identity or sexual orientation. We need a president that will fight discrimination and protect LGBTQ+ rights. #RiseUpOct8
They’re allowing Trump to spend over $1 million a week right now for ads on their platform—including ones that air the same lies that TV stations won’t. Here’s an example of an ad that Facebook let Trump run despite being obviously untrue:
I support bringing our troops home from Syria. But President Trump's reckless and unplanned withdrawal undermines both our partners and our security. We need a strategy to end this conflict, not a president who can be swayed by one phone call.
“Trump is lying about his calls with China because his trade war is failing, and he's scrambling. We need a real plan to fix our economy before there’s another downturn. I’ve got one.”
“Donald Trump is a walking, talking conflict of interest. No president should be allowed to push the rules of our government to benefit their personal bottom line. My anti-corruption bill—the biggest since Watergate—tackles this kind of corruption head on.”
American security and prosperity depend on robust diplomacy. Our diplomats are the front line of our engagement with the world. Through a toxic combination of malice and neglect, Donald Trump has declared war on the State Department. In one of his first acts, he attempted to cut the State Department’s budget by a third. Some senior career officials were pushed out, while others resigned in protest. The State Department has lost 60% of its career ambassadors and 20% of its most experienced civil servants.
Payday lenders spent buckets of money on Trump's campaign and properties. Then Trump's @CFPB director, Kathy Kraninger, did the predatory payday lending industry a huge favor by rolling back important regulations. It's corruption, plain and simple.
Mueller’s statement made clear what those of us who have read his report already knew: He’s referring President Trump for impeachment, and it’s up to Congress to act. But impeachment isn’t supposed to be the only way that a President can be held accountable for committing a crime.That’s why I’ve got a plan to make sure that no President is above the law.That’s why I came out in favor of impeachment after reading all 448 pages of Mueller’s report. This is not about politics — it’s our constitutional duty as members of Congress. It’s a matter of principle.
