When it comes to military operations in Syria, President Trump seems to be acting like a king by trying to unilaterally start a war. That’s unacceptable. As I also said with the Obama administration, any use of force like this demands a vote of Congress.

We can’t keep going on like this. Too many in elected office ignore cries for action—from parents who lost a child, students who lost a friend. These voices speaking truth to power should be the ones we wake up every day to represent. If we don’t, we are failing.

I hope President Trump takes to heart the moving stories he heard today, and we finally act to meaningfully curb gun violence. These powerful voices should spur us to put politics aside and enact new gun safety measures that make our kids, schools and communities safer.

Thank you for your advocacy and passionate insistence that we must do better for our kids when it comes to action on gun violence. I stand with you.

There are many in public office who could learn a thing or two from the courage of these kids, who are standing up today to say "enough is enough." Their peers and classmates are dying because we can't act on gun violence. We owe them better.

In awe of Parkland students like Emma Gonzalez who are speaking out in the wake of the horrific tragedy they experienced. These kids shouldn’t have to be the voices of reason in our country right now, but they are - and we should listen. Emma - thank you. I stand with you.

For all who have challenged whether curling is a sport—if participants are doping, it must be a sport. Case closed!

What is the Trump administration doing to protect the 2018 elections? Likely nothing. Congress, courts, states, cities, counties, NGOs and citizens need to safeguard the integrity of our democracy since the president won’t.

"The NRA has slowly become an organization that marches to the beat of gun manufacturers, not it's members." Sen. tells fellow members of Congress not to be afraid of the NRA. Watch.

54 > 39. Our bipartisan plan to protect Dreamers from deportation got *15* more votes than the Trump plan. This was a sensible plan to solve the problem. President Trump chose to tank it to push a much more cruel and restrictive plan—and it failed. Bigly.

Despite President Trump’s actions, I refuse to give up on protecting Dreamers from deportation. La lucha sigue — the fight continues.

President Trump created a crisis when he unilaterally ended DACA. He asked Congress to clean up his mess, so we did—with a bipartisan plan to protect Dreamers and fund border security. But Trump refused to take yes for an answer and tanked the deal.

The past few weeks, we’ve tried every approach to getting permanent protection for Dreamers. It’s been my primary focus in the immigration negotiations. I firmly believe the bipartisan deal today is our best chance to pass a bill to shield them from deportation.
