Trump at an indoor rally: “Our nation is up against the most sinister forces…This nation does not belong to them, this nation belongs to you.”
Them=everyone who voted against him
You=everyone who voted for him
Sinister force=anyone against him fueling the divide

Despite acknowledging the severity of the problem, @POTUS remains in denial by continuing to entertain the possibility of getting 10 GOP votes for voting rights -when in reality, ZERO Republicans voted in support of the #ForThePeopleAct.#EndTheFilibusterhttps://t.co/2Aplr95hzw

Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) disagrees with my tweet that no Republican voted in favor of child allowances, tweeting instead that no Democrat wanted to enlarge them. Utter hypocrisy. As I argue in today’s Guardian, the Republican Party is anti-family.https://t.co/VPOUSzGCcO

The next time you hear Republicans start to talk about ‘family values’ this or ‘party of the working class’ that, remember: every single Republican in the House and the Senate voted AGAINST giving working families direct monthly payments of up to $ 300 per child.

“I gave a little blood on that bridge in Selma. I almost died. Some of my friends and colleagues were murdered. I’m not asking any of you to give any blood. I’m just asking you to go and vote like you’ve never voted before.”

Thanks to the American Rescue Plan, child tax credit payments start going out TODAY. That’s up to $ 3,600 a year, per child, going into the pockets of working parents across America.
Here’s a reminder that ZERO Republicans voted for it. Not even one.

Americans with disabilities voted in record numbers in 2020, but new state laws could discourage turnout moving forward.
Today, I met with advocates who are disabled to hear about their experiences casting their vote, and discuss protecting the right to vote. pic.twitter.com/lZDa4KIPEf
