This is a silly sideshow from President Shutdown. Get your facts straight. And take a bipartisan deal. Don't inflict senseless pain on federal workers, our government, and America's reputation. You've done enough.

Now he demands $5B from taxpayers for the wall or we get a . But: > He said Mexico would pay for it > Congress gave him $1.3B for border (not "boarder") security in '17 and he didn't spend it > His own border patrol says we need sensors/fence/etc but the wall's dumb

President Trump blew the whole Iran deal up—over his own military leaders' objections, by the way—because of his insecurity over President Obama. An insecurity which, I might add, Saudi Arabia has played like a cheap fiddle.

The Iran deal did not "give" Iran one penny; it released Iran's own money frozen in bank accounts. It imposed restrictions and inspections on Iran for decades and prohibited the country from ever purchasing, acquiring or developing any nuclear weapons.

President Trump is delusional and clearly has never read the Iran deal.

The days of Congress enabling President Trump’s lies and misdirection are coming to an end. In divided government, Democrats aren’t gonna just go along with whatever the tweet du jour is. We’re going to demand he act like an adult.

Trump’s labor secretary once signed off on the "deal of a lifetime" for wealthy sex offender Jeffrey Epstein. Now senators want to know why.

“Proud” ?? To hurt the economy? To force federal workers (many in Virginia) to go without pay? To demonstrate to the world that America can’t even do the basic functions of governing? Make no mistake: Donald Trump is cheerleading a shutdown.

America’s position as a global moral leader is fragile. From caging children to allowing a journalist’s murder, we can’t let this stand. On , let’s look in the mirror and commit ourselves to again making America the world’s beacon for equality and rights for all.

Our troops who serve in overseas wars deserve a Congress with the courage to weigh in on those wars. We support ⁦⁩ efforts to pass an Authorization to Use Military Force that puts Congress back in the driver seat.

The Justice Department Inspector General should investigate how serial sexual abuser Jeffrey Epstein got what the called “the deal of a lifetime” — including Alex Acosta’s role in it. I’m leading this letter with to demand they do just that.

As we begin Hanukkah, it’s important to consider how many Jewish families still don’t live free from hate because of the alarming rise in anti-Semitic acts in recent years. This holiday teaches us to seek the light - so let’s pray for more for the world, especially in dark times.

President Bush stands as a model of dignity in public service. From flying combat missions in WWII, to signing the Americans with Disabilities Act and bringing the Cold War to a peaceful end, he carried his accomplishments with such humility. My condolences to the Bush family.

From excusing Jamal Khashoggi’s murder to aiding this disastrous war in Yemen, the Trump administration is essentially playing the part of Saudi Arabia’s defense lawyer. That’s not what America’s role in the world should be — and it’s time we all stand up against it.

For too long, the US has been involved in a Yemeni civil war that’s killed thousands and forced millions to the brink of famine. And as Trump kowtows to the Saudis, it’s up to Congress to demonstrate America’s moral leadership. We need to end US support for this war now.

More delays and misdirection from this President. He’s said the same thing before, but rejected a bipartisan offer to protect Dreamers and fund billions in border security this spring. He would rather use these young people as pawns in his game. Some “heart.”

Soon to be overheard in elementary schools across America: Teacher: “Jimmy, you got an F on your science test. Did you even read the assignment?” Jimmy: “Yes. I just don’t believe it.”
