The situation in Kashmir remains deeply concerning, with thousands of civilians still detained without charges and with no access to the outside world. Fundamental human rights like free speech and access to information must be protected.

Yet again, Trump’s campaign wants foreign help to win an election. Giuliani is Trump’s personal lawyer, acting on his behalf, in his campaign’s interest. Their goal now is the same as 2016: Get dirt on a political opponent. But this time, they can't plead ignorance of the law.

As long as we are claiming constitutional powers we don't have, I hereby order the President to stop tweeting.

Russia was kicked out of the G8 because they invaded and annexed part of Ukraine. Then Russia attacked US elections. They used chemical weapons in the UK. Now Trump wants to let them back in. Why reward their behavior? Sometimes the simplest answer is the right one: 💲

The Trump Admin is intent on making cruelty to immigrants their legacy. They’re now seeking to detain families, including young children, indefinitely in inhumane conditions. The courts should block it. And people of decency and conscience should denounce it.

Mr. President, you clearly know very little about people of my faith. We believe politicizing religious belief like this is dangerous and wrong. We value vigorous debate about difficult issues, not ignorance and bigotry. We value basic human decency. An American value. Try it.

The Trump Administration is making it harder and more costly for countless women to receive care by going after Planned Parenthood. Their new rule will reduce access to birth control, cancer screenings, and reproductive choice. Only the latest front in the war on health care.

Social media platforms and the U.S. government must continue to identify and combat state-backed information operations online, whether they’re aimed at disrupting our elections or undermining peaceful protesters who seek freedom and democracy.

Twitter and Facebook announced they found and removed a large network of Chinese government-backed accounts spreading disinformation about the protests in Hong Kong. This is just one example of how authoritarian regimes use social media to manipulate people, at home and abroad.

As Trump has alienated so many of our key allies, and brought low our standing in the world, Congress must stand up. Was proud to join Nancy Pelosi at the Munich Security Conference and champion human rights. Showing leadership when the president won’t. That’s .

The El Paso attack by a white supremacist is only the most recent in a growing trend of domestic terror, fueled by racism and hate. It’s time for the law to catch up. We should create a narrowly-tailored domestic terrorism law that protects civil liberties. Here's my bill:

The Trump Administration’s management of the federal government is rife with incompetence, paranoia and politicization. The damage at the State Department will be felt for decades, but more importantly, so will the damage to America’s security and standing in the world.

Not content to provoke division at home, Trump now enlists our allies to do so abroad. Denying Reps. Omar and Tlaib entry to Israel and the West Bank is short-sighted and wrong. Israel does itself no favors by allowing itself to be used in Trump’s poisonous electioneering.

This video is a testament to the rapid advancement of deepfake technology. But beneath the humor, the nearly-imperceptible shifts between faces reveal an undeniable fact: It’s now harder than ever to discern fact from fiction. And that poses a serious threat to our democracy.

Immigration raids in Mississippi result in even more children separated from their families. Right on the heels of the El Paso shooting which targeted immigrants. And now, a new rule to cut legal immigration. Trump thinks racial politics is good politics. Let’s prove him wrong.

My heart breaks for California Highway Patrol Officer Andre Moye and his loved ones. A routine traffic stop ended in tragedy after an extended shootout. We thank our CHP officers who risk their lives every day to provide us with the highest level of safety, service and security.

The bald eagle is the proud symbol of our nation. Should it become extinct, it will be a tragic symbol of our selfishness and greed. The Endangered Species Act helped rescue the eagle from its plight, but now that law is being weakened. For Trump’s donors and allies. For money.

Trump brings conspiracy theories from the darkest corners of the internet to the Oval Office. Lies about Obama's birth, JFK’s death, or now, that the Clintons are responsible for murder... Trump has lied over 12,000 times. He’s the most dishonest president in our history.
