Trump’s 1. grossly negligent handling of the Coronavirus crisis was 2. reasonably likely to cause death/serious bodily injury to others & 3. was a substantial factor in bringing about the death of others (which is the legal definition of “causation”). This is not a close call. https://t.co/lkyFG3afKI

Putin didn't fight corruption in Russia, he simply legalized it, abusing state power to favor his oligarch cronies & punish those who wouldn't obey. Trump's efforts to do similar in a stronger US system must be resisted.

I must confess, Trump hiring a corrupt GOP donor to destroy the US Postal Service so he could steal the 2020 election during a deadly pandemic was not on my Dystopia Bingo card. We always underestimate what this party of traitors is willing to do. pic.twitter.com/16NJoarUTh

The "war on terror" has been unleashed on Americans: “It’s important to remember that the DHS and ICE were only founded in 2002, and the CBP only reorganized in 2003. These instruments of terror are entirely creations of the War on Terror.” — @indica https://t.co/5JlG17Cnoa

We've seen 151,000 deaths and a 33% decline in our economy—yet, members of the Trump Administration and their donors are continuing to profit off this corrupt response to COVID-19. It is long past time that we pass the CORE Act and #StopCOVIDCorruption.https://t.co/HoXiR5yRRS

Wrong! We have more cases because we have tested far more than any other country, 60,000,000. If we tested less, there would be less cases. How did Italy, France & Spain do? Now Europe sadly has flare ups. Most of our governors worked hard & smart. We will come back STRONG!

1. Americans should be concerned about TikTok's access to our info and its relationship with the PRC;
2. Any action against TikTok should be in compliance with applicable law; and
3. I have confidence Silicon Valley has the talent to fill any "TikTok void" in American lives.
