economic growth has peaked at 3.5% in two of the ten quarters of Trump’s presidency 3.5% is strong but when Trump says it’s the best economy ever, remember: 3.5% would rank as Obama’s 7th-best quarter of growth, GWB’s 8th-best, and Clinton’s 18th-best

“This is a strategic blunder of epic proportions that Netanyahu and his advisers have made, turning Israel into a branch of the Republican Party. This is a tiny little country in a very bad neighborhood that needs all the friends it can get.”

In 2016, says, many white voters “didn’t have skin in the racism game. It was okay for them to not disqualify him over it. What Trump is doing now is putting skin in the game for middle-of-the-road white voters.“

It’s beyond trite at this point to categorize anything Trump does as a new low, but the President working against our congressional delegation in the international arena... new low. And it is beyond a new low, it is betrayal of country & our Democracy

Tamir Rice, 12 years-old black boy carrying a TOY GUN was percieved as a BLACK MAN carrying a GUN in an OPEN CARRY STATE of OHIO. He was SHOT and KILLED by police.

Every day in this presidency unprecedented things happen but just let this sink in: none of those wounded in a mass shooting would meet w/the President. That comes just after a poll showing majority of US considers him racist. Beyond his base he's approaching maximum illegitimacy

We have lost our moral authority as a country. This is about racism & resentment politics plan & simple. There is no bigger issue. & for those establishment Dems who argue this issue is a “distraction” from talking about real issues like healthcare, u are also part of the problem

When 600 agents were making a show of arresting 680 undocumented immigrants working at Mississippi processing plants, did anyone bother to arrest the employers? Or did they leave them undisturbed in the back room counting their money?

Furthering this conversation from earlier, well clearly racism isn’t a disqualification for really rich guys who could care less behind their gated mansion walls if the country went up in flames

Senator McCollister Aug 7
Years from now, when Donald Trump is just a painful memory, Republican lawmakers everywhere will try to say they “never liked him.”

I’m picking up on this sense that middle of the road white Americans now sense they have skin in the game. I would argue historically they have seldom had skin in the racism game - it wasn’t their problem or issue, Trump’s destructive politics is impacting them & their future now

Mental health is an important issue, but for the debate, it’s a bait & switch. There’s no strong statistical connection between mass shootings & this issue. Don’t let politicians bamboozle us & move us away from the real debate about guns in our society

I’m already on record, but I think I must reemphasize it again for those who might just now be paying attention: Democrats, white nationalism & racism are not a distraction, this IS THE ISSUE. This is everything, this is literally Life and death. There is no issue more important

When I was in Congress 8 yrs ago, our biggest domestic terror threat was Muslim American men radicalized by Islamism. Today, our biggest domestic terror threat is white American men radicalized by white supremacy. Conservatives must be honest enough to acknowledge this.

2020 elections shouldn’t be about healthcare, it must be about the heart & soul of this country, who we are as a people morally & who we want to be going forward. All the Dem candidates must get bigger in this moment not narrower. The candidate with the biggest moral vision wins
