In addition to getting these illicit products off the market, FDA's next step should be restricting online sales and banning flavors that appeal to kids.

Positive step in response to my letter questioning FDA’s lack of action back in June. But, long overdue. There are tons of e-cigarette devices & flavors on the market in violation of existing rules.

President Trump’s refusal to show U.S. leadership on freedom of the press at home and abroad is deeply troubling. There is no grey area when it comes to this issue.

I’m pressing Secretary of State Pompeo to address rising global authoritarianism and a crackdown on freedom of the press. Violence and murder against journalists and dissidents is barbaric and unacceptable.

The disappearance and possible murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi is disturbing to say the least. It is time for Saudi Arabia to tell the truth. America deserves answers.

Our bill would prohibit foreigners who improperly interfere in our elections from coming to the U.S., and bar them from entering our country in the future. Vladimir Putin exploited our immigration laws to undermine our democracy in 2016. We must ensure that never happens again.

We have a moral obligation to our kids and grandkids to leave future generations with a planet that is not plagued by catastrophic droughts, famine, wildfires, hurricanes, and sea-level rise. We have the tools and know-how to do it, it’s time we rise to the challenge.

Pres Trump decided to step away from the rest of the world, step away from our allies & trading partners, & leave the Paris agreement. I hope after this week’s announcement from the UN, at least someone in the White House will have second thoughts about that disastrous decision.
