Heartbroken by the devastation caused by the recent explosion in Beirut. My thoughts are with those in Lebanon & around the world touched by this tragedy. The Lebanese people are strong and I know in time they’ll come together & heal. The rest of us should do all we can to help.

Through his faith in principled compromise, and his ability to see his adversaries as human beings, John Hume helped forge the peace that has held to this day. My full statement on my friend's passing here:

I’ll always be grateful for Sergeant First Class Glenn Powell — for his friendship and his commitment and service to his country. He ensured it was possible for all of us to travel, making him an unsung hero in the White House. I’ll miss him and his smile very much.

Hillary and I were blessed by his friendship, support and wise counsel. We’ll miss him so much, but we’ll always be grateful that he lived to see a new generation of Americans take to the streets in search of his long sought “beloved community.”

John Lewis gave all he had to redeem America’s unmet promise of equality and justice for all, and to create a place for us to build a more perfect union together. In so doing he became the conscience of the nation.

Hillary and I are happy to hear Justice Ginsburg is out of the hospital. Having her on the job makes us feel better every day.

Reverend Vivian was a man of faith and a giant in the fight for civil rights. He believed in our basic humanity and that all us who share it are entitled to the same rights. Throughout his long, good life he pushed us to do and be better. May he rest in peace.

The tragic events in Srebrenica awoke the world to the horrors of the conflict and triggered the efforts that ended the war. Today we must remember— as we did when I had the honor to be in Srebrenica in ‘15— so we never make those mistakes again. Video:

Grateful for 25 years of partnership — working towards peace, prosperity and security — in Vietnam and Southeast Asia. And to all of those whose support made it possible, including Senators McCain, Kerry, Kerrey, Robb, and Cleland and Congressman Peterson — all Vietnam veterans.

On this 4th of July, I'm hopeful that we continue to work on and build upon the ideals of equality and freedom, expanding the definition of "Us" and shrinking the definition of "Them." How we respond to this moment in time may define what our country is like for a very long time.

Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them. And some are John Lewis. Watch Good Trouble and see what I mean.

I am proud to join the campaign in honor of the centennial of the Negro Leagues and the talented men and women who played in them from 1920 through 1960. The Negro Leagues made baseball better and America better.

I loved Steve Bing very much. He had a big heart, and he was willing to do anything he could for the people and causes he believed in. I will miss him and his enthusiasm more than I can say, and I hope he’s finally found peace.

America’s greatest strength is our diversity. This week’s Supreme Court rulings protecting LGBTQ+ rights in the workplace and blocking the termination of DACA have made America better, fairer, and stronger.

Juneteenth is both a remembrance and, particularly this year, a reminder that the journey toward true equality and justice is far from over. The millions of people across the country demanding change have brought new hope to a very old fight. We must keep pushing.

No one deserves to die the way George Floyd did. And the truth is, if you’re white in America, the chances are you won’t. That truth is what underlies the pain and the anger that so many are feeling and expressing. My full statement on his death:
