I want to express my sincere condolences to the family of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a titan & legend on the Supreme Court whose undeniably brilliant legal mind & dedication to justice & equality moved our country forward. We’ve lost a champion tonight, but her legacy lives on.

Justice Ginsburg’s dying wish was that her seat would not be filled until a new president is installed! Senate Democrats, do not back down. You have a tough fight ahead but our future is on the line! No SCOTUS appointment before the election!!!

Today, I’m also reminded of the courage of the heroes onboard  who sacrificed their own lives to take control of the plane from terrorists so it could not be used as a weapon agnst their fellow citizens. They used their final moments in service to their country.

The heroism demonstrated by 9/11 first responders & ordinary citizens who sacrificed their own lives to save their neighbors is the type of courage we are seeing today among our doctors, nurses, postal workers, & other essential employees working during the coronavirus pandemic.

I’ve never seen a more disgusting & pathetic excuse for a human being than Donald Trump! Several news orgs + Fox confirm Trump called US war dead losers & suckers just like he called Sen. McCain! Trump is a con who only cares abt his next hustle! HE is the loser, not our troops!

While Trump sits in the White House and McConnell does nothing, families are being EVICTED. We passed the Heroes Act 105 days ago, but McConnell has buried it in his legislative graveyard. He is the self-proclaimed GRIM REAPER, now we know why!

When will it stop? When will the police that we pay to protect & serve stop killing black people? In the words of Doc Rivers: “We keep loving this country, and this country does not love us back?” But love doesn’t last forever!

Another unarmed black man, shot in the back, by a WI police officer! No matter the outrage at the killing of George Floyd by a police officer, knee on his neck, the killing of black men continues. Is this a defiance by the police that indicates they don’t intend to stop?

For THREE years, I warned the American people & my colleagues that this president was a threat to our democracy. Yet here we are today, voting on a measure to save the Postal Service, because it is being sabotaged by a desperate president in order to cheat in the 2020 elections.

Our is under attack. Our future is under attack. Our democracy is under attack. I have never backed down from a fight and I won’t stop now. I will not allow for Trump and DeJoy to undermine our postal service.

Held a press conference at Central USPS in LA. Demanded DeJoy & Trump stop the destruction of the ! Seniors can’t get meds. Families can’t get groceries delivered. Vets can’t get disability benefits, all b/c Trump wants to stop mail-in voting. Afraid he won’t get re-elected!

B4 oversight hearing DeJoy announced he’s stopping changes he’s been making to USPS until after elections. Trump & DeJoy can’t be trusted. How much damage have they already done? Have they accomplished what they set out 2 do & undermine mail-in voting? Let’s keep the pressure up!

DeJoy talks about not making any changes until after the elections. I don’t support any changes before OR after, and keep your hands off the blue mailboxes! I’m fighting to fund $25 billion & IMPROVE services, not dismantle services!
