In this difficult time, Jane and I want to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving. We are especially mindful of those families who have lost loved ones during the pandemic, and who will feel those losses so keenly today. Best wishes to all.
The year 2020 has been very difficult for mental health. The pandemic, isolation and economic downturn has greatly increased depression, anxiety and suicidal ideation. When we talk about real health care reform, we mean a major expansion of mental health services.
As we approach Thanksgiving, a very special thanks must go out to the millions of courageous doctors, nurses and all health care workers who are putting their lives on the line battling this horrific pandemic. You are true heroes and heroines. Thank you.
Yesterday, Trump took full credit for the 30,000 Dow Jones, but took zero credit for 260,000 Americans who died from COVID, 40 million who face eviction or 26 million who don't have enough food to eat on Thanksgiving.
No, Mr. President. The stock market is not the economy.
The Democrats must make it clear: Do we stand with the struggling working class of this country, or powerful special interests? https://t.co/Bm0PWhnb6D

Workers in the richest country in the world should not have to go on strike to get the PPE and staffing they need to do their job.
I stand with @SEIU health care workers and all essential workers fighting for their rights and our collective safety. https://t.co/IQsBALGjnD
If Amazon workers in Alabama – a strong anti-union state – vote to form a union, it will be a shot heard around the world. If they can negotiate higher wages and better working conditions in the South, it will benefit every worker in America. I strongly support their efforts. https://t.co/ywldDO5hzv
Our young people are the most progressive generation in U.S. history, and they're making their voices heard. As a result of a huge increase in voter turnout, people under 30 played a major role in Biden's victory. They are transforming America. https://t.co/8c8x9qjSox
There are a lot of good reasons to veto the Defense Bill, including it's $740 billion cost. But Trump's reason is not one of them. Yes. In the year 2020, American troops should not be living in army bases named after Confederate military leaders who fought to defend slavery.

All workers are entitled to decent wages and working conditions, which is why I stand with the Amazon warehouse workers in Alabama exercising their constitutional right to form a union. Mr. Bezos, the wealthiest person in America, must not interfere in this election.
Health care is a human right, not a job benefit. We cannot continue spending twice as much per capita as any other country, while 92 million are uninsured or under-insured, and 68,000 die unnecessarily each year. Medicare for All is coming sooner or later. Let's make it sooner.
We must never "normalize" authoritarianism. In ways that would've been beyond belief a few years ago, Trump and his team, through outrageous lies and conspiracy theories, are undermining American democracy. They must not and will not succeed.
Nero fiddled while Rome burned. Trump, the most dangerous president ever, golfs and sends out bogus tweets in an outrageous and desperate attempt to overturn an election he lost by more than 6 million votes. Bye-bye, Trump. You will not destroy American democracy.
This is what Georgia's senate runoff elections mean: strong COVID relief, $15 minimum wage, expanded healthcare, tackling climate change, addressing systemic racism and immigration reform – and removing Mitch McConnell as Majority Leader. Let's do it.
In 2016, when Trump won MI, PA and WI by 77, 000 votes, it was part of his "landslide" victory.
In 2020, when Biden won MI, PA and WI by 255,000 votes, and won the popular vote by 6 million, it was "voter fraud."
We will not allow Trump to destroy American democracy.
It is beyond pathetic for a sitting president to try to subvert the results of an election. It is even worse when the Republican Party, with few exceptions, remains silent over this outrageous attack on democracy. The GOP has ceased to be a political party. It is now a cult.
We must do everything possible to make me sure we become a vibrant democracy, and that means doing the exact opposite of what Trump and his authoritarian friends want to do. https://t.co/FXYsaOoWgq
