The hard truth is that this crisis didn’t have to be this bad.
Presidents are supposed to lead by example — and every day Donald Trump proves how incapable he is of doing that.
Trump says mask wearing is "politically correct." Biden calls him a "fool." https://wapo.st/2B7ItCn
. @Dr. Jill Biden and I are saddened to learn of the passing of Larry Kramer, an American hero. Through his activism, Larry taught us all how to speak up and demand our government do its job. His outspokenness raised our consciousness on HIV/AIDS and saved countless lives.
Kramer is best known as the author of the Tony-winning "The Normal Heart," and as a founder of Gay Men’s Health Crisis and ACT UP. https://www.advocate.com/news/2020/5/27/larry-kramer-towering-figure-aggressive-aids-activism-dead-8...
Over the last few months, countless Asian Americans have been threatened, attacked, and blamed for COVID-19. They've cruelly been made the scapegoat by the most powerful man on the planet, President Trump. It has to end.

We’re in the middle of a global pandemic — and not only is Donald Trump preventing people from getting the health insurance they need, but he’s also actively trying to terminate the insurance millions already have. It’s morally reprehensible.
Tune in now as @Tom Wolf joins me for a conversation on how COVID-19 is impacting states: https://www.pscp.tv/w/cZ0gsjFvUEVMQkJiT2xyS2R8MXlOR2FRZ3BxWmdHanrCR-vOQD_-6MpFr5yPmgHDLHGAy58NMnhq5e...
Last year California passed #AB5, affording gig workers protections and benefits like a minimum wage and overtime pay. Now, gig economy giants are trying to gut the law and exempt their workers. It's unacceptable. I urge Californians to vote no on the initiative this November.
George Floyd deserved better and his family deserves justice. His life mattered. I'm grateful for the swift action in Minneapolis to fire the officers involved — they must be held responsible for their egregious actions. The FBI should conduct a thorough investigation.
4 Minneapolis police officers have been terminated following the death of George Floyd, who was seen pleading "I cannot breathe" as an officer put a knee on his neck for several minutes on Monday night, Minneapolis Mayor Frey says. https://nbcnews.to/2TDOb5q
Wear a mask.
Donald Trump's wealthy donors got tens of millions of dollars in relief, while countless small businesses were turned away. It's no wonder he didn't want any oversight. We need a government that works for all — not just the super-wealthy.
The truth is asking for money is the worst part of running for president—especially in times as tough as these. But we’re coming up on our end of month fundraising deadline, and I need your help to ensure we hit our goal.

1 in 4 U.S. workers has filed for unemployment benefits in the last 10 weeks. It’s a crisis unlike anything we’ve seen in our lifetime — and the Trump Administration is failing to do enough to help.
So much of this could have been prevented if we had a president who listened to someone other than himself.
We are months into this crisis, and Donald Trump still doesn't have a comprehensive plan when it comes to COVID-19 or the economy. It's unacceptable. I released a detailed plan laying out what I would do months ago, and have built on it since. Take a look: https://joebiden.com/covid19/
There’s not a single thing the American people can’t do if we do it together.
We have always been able to take crises and turn them into opportunities — and we have the chance to do that once again. If we match our ambitions to the scale of the challenges we face, we can and will transform our country for generations to come.
This ruling goes a long way toward protecting the sacred right to vote, but there's still work to do. We've got to ensure everyone — including individuals formerly incarcerated for felonies — has the right to make their voice heard at the ballot box.
A federal judge rules that former felons in the state of Florida can't be barred from voting because they still owe court fines or fees https://cnn.it/3c1AdAo
To all the members of our military and our military families, especially those who have lost their service member, thank you. We owe you. We can never lessen the magnitude of your loss, but this I can promise you: we will never forget. #MemorialDay
The presidency is about a lot more than tweeting from your golf cart. It requires taking on the ultimate responsibility for the biggest decisions in the world. Donald Trump simply wasn’t prepared for that. I promise you I will be.
Climate change poses an existential threat to our future — and time is running out to address it. We have to get Donald Trump out of the White House and tackle the challenge head-on.
Hunger today isn’t about scarcity — it’s about a massive failure in leadership. If I were President, I’d immediately work with @José Andrés to empower our restaurants to be part of the solution as families go hungry during the COVID-19 crisis. https://joebiden.com/joe-biden-urges-donald-trump-to-address-hunger-crisis/
Folks write letters to me asking all kinds of questions, but Jack's question on my favorite ice cream flavor might be the best one yet. Here’s what I told him: https://joe.link/36qS0Qt
Make no mistake: I believe our best days still lie ahead. We can and will transform this nation — together.
