The hypocrisy of this president. After months of vilifying vote-by-mail and making baseless claims of voter fraud, he’s voting by mail this November. The only thing fraudulent about this year’s election is Trump himself. We must vote him out.

Under and ’s leadership, we'll increase benefits and provide more accurate cost-of-living adjustments that reflect the high costs facing older Americans. And we will keep Social Security strong for today’s workers and retirees, and for generations to come.

For decades, Democrats have fought to protect Social Security from those who want to privatize it, cut its benefits, erect barriers to coverage for disabled workers, and raise the age of retiree eligibility. And we aren’t stopping now.

For 85 years, Social Security has allowed Americans to retire with dignity, and provided a financial lifeline to disabled workers, survivors, and children. And yet, as we celebrate this anniversary, Trump has launched an all-out assault on the way Social Security is funded.

Black women are the backbone of the Democratic Party and the lifeblood of the American workforce. During this pandemic, they have been on the front lines as essential workers, risking their lives to help keep us safe. And yet, they still aren’t paid equally for their work.

The Supreme Court just upheld a ruling that makes it easier for Rhode Islanders to cast their vote by mail. Thank you and for your leadership. Every American should be able to vote safely and easily. Make a plan to vote:

Nearly 1 million new unemployment claims last week. Nearly 30 million Americans out of work. Over 166,000 deaths. And what is this president’s response? To cut benefits and attack critical programs like Social Security.

Those who gathered in Charlottesville in the name of racism were wrong, and it is up to all of us to stand up for what is right.

Unlike Donald Trump, and know there are not ‘many sides’ to the issue of white supremacy. There is right and wrong. It was this display of unbridled hatred that inspired Vice President Biden to take on Donald Trump and restore the soul of our nation.

This November, voters will not only make their voices heard on critical issues like health care, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Bigotry will also be on the ballot. And as Americans, we need to elect a president who will fight for dignity, equality, and justice for all.

It was a result of the systemic racism that plagues every aspect of our society. Make no mistake: The same sentiment that took to the streets in Charlottesville also took the life of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

What we saw three years ago was not an isolated incident. It was the product of a country being led by those more interested in stoking fear and division than hope and unity, by those who believe in fueling hate instead of fighting it.

Instead of condemning the neo-Nazis and Klan members leading this movement, President Trump defended them as ‘very fine people.’ And ever since, Trump and his allies have not only allowed such hatred to go unchecked, they have actively encouraged and enabled its perpetrators.

Three years ago today, our nation watched in horror as hate and bigotry flooded the streets of Charlottesville. White supremacists, emboldened by this president, left their hoods at home and marched in torchlight, unafraid to show their faces.
