And the most polluting incinerators in America hurt low-income and minority neighborhoods the most. We need clean air and water for all—not a government that works on behalf of polluters. https://t.co/2X6efs0jMu Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Saturday May 25 - 11:41am I agree with these 76 retired generals and admirals, who warn that a war with Iran would be a disaster for the region and for U.S. security, and who urge Trump to pursue diplomacy rather than an unnecessary conflict. https://t.co/tciy0Id8Qc Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Friday May 24 - 6:42pm I understand President Trump is blocking a resolution at the @WHO that would require drug companies to disclose actual R&D costs for pharmaceutical drugs. Nobody should believe Mr. Trump when he talks about taking on Big Pharma. https://t.co/2XaXURjjlv Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Friday May 24 - 4:31pm Let me be clear: it is a disturbing attack on the First Amendment for the Trump administration to decide who is or is not a reporter for the purposes of a criminal prosecution. Donald Trump must obey the Constitution, which protects the publication of news about our government. https://t.co/5JtHNHH2BE Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Friday May 24 - 2:01pm Young people have already demonstrated that they can take on powerful fossil fuel companies and force politicians to answer their call to action.
To the more than 1 million people walking out for climate justice today: I stand with you. https://t.co/65rBGcvJTz Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Friday May 24 - 8:30am I was right about Vietnam.
I was right about Iraq.
I will do everything in my power to prevent a war with Iran.
I apologize to no one. https://t.co/Lna3oBZMKB

I've got a better idea. We're going to make Wall Street pay its fair share and stop reckless speculation. https://t.co/c1U272rzpS Bernie Sanders 3 weeks ago:   Thursday May 23 - 3:48pm I support the Transport Workers Union in their struggle against American Airlines. This is what a strong union and strong union leadership is about: https://t.co/7EINUWs4xl
