It's August 10th, and President Trump still doesn’t have an adequate national testing strategy.

President Trump says: “It is what it is.” The president, his aides, his party in Congress aren't even awake to what’s happening in our country That's the reason why Senate Republicans delayed for four long months and that's the reason why we’ve been unable to find an agreement

Pres. Trump's executive order on evictions doesn't even guarantee a moratorium on evictions, let alone identify specific funds to help people who've fallen behind on rent It’s less of an executive order and more of an "executive suggestion" The American people need real relief!

President Trump's executive order on unemployment benefits is put together in such a sloppy way that it'll take weeks or months for states to even implement. Millions could lose everything before they ever see a check. Republicans must get back to the negotiating table!

President Trump’s executive orders are hardly worth the paper they’re printed on. They leave out funding for: —COVID testing, tracing & treatment —Our schools to safely reopen —Food assistance —State & local governments —Our 2020 elections —Post Office

Then-Candidate Donald Trump promised that he would never touch Social Security. Well guess what: deferring the payroll tax is a backdoor way of weakening Social Security. The executive order is just another false promise made by Donald Trump.

Senate Minority Leader Schumer says executive orders for coronavirus relief that President Trump signed on Saturday are going to be “minimal at best.” Republicans “have to meet us in the middle,” Schumer says.

More than 160,000 Americans have died from coronavirus. Over 5 MILLION Americans with the virus. President Trump’s answer? Months of delays, downplaying the pandemic and scam executive orders that won’t fix the problems.

. thinks that America’s senior citizens don’t know that eliminating the payroll tax would defund Social Security and Medicare. But they do. And I’m sure they’ll remember. Quote from :

JUST IN: Sen. Chuck Schumer tells that President Trump’s COVID-19 executive orders are “unworkable, weak and far too narrow.” “The event at the country club is just what Trump does — a big show but it doesn’t do anything.”

Instead of putting in the work to solve Americans’ problems, Pres. Trump chose to stay on his golf course to announce unworkable, weak & narrow policy announcements to slash the unemployment benefits that millions desperately need and endanger seniors’ Social Security & Medicare

The statement by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence pulls back the curtain on Putin’s disinformation operations The fact that Pres. Trump & some Senate GOP have echoed this campaign and done nothing to stop it should alarm every American

Pres. Trump & The Hill’s tweet left out a very important word: SAFELY. It’s literally the word I said right before this. I've said repeatedly we can only open schools if we do it safely—I've advocated hundreds of millions from the fed govt to open them safely which Trump opposes

President Trump & Senator McConnell for months have refused to act and downplayed the threat of COVID. Now they seem to be walking away from the table. What will it take for Republicans to take COVID seriously? Democrats will not stop fighting for Americans across this country.

Today's jobs report shows the economic recovery spurred by the investments Congress passed is losing steam. More investments are urgently needed. Americans are hurting, yet President Trump and GOP appear ready to walk away from the negotiating table. From & me:

To Postmaster General DeJoy: and I are demanding the USPS begin paying overtime again and hire back workers who were unfairly fired so that the mail is delivered on time including medicine, paychecks, absentee ballots, and more!

When it comes to elections, education, and food assistance. When it comes to health care coverage, testing and tracing, and Medicaid. Senate Republicans continue to pinch pennies during a national emergency. We won't stop fighting to get Americans the relief they deserve.

If Senate Republicans are finally worried about how little many of our essential workers are making, they’d support our proposal to give essential workers hazard pay.
