Julián Castro 3 hours ago:   Friday Apr 19 - 11:02am Whether it’s handing out massive tax cuts to his billionaire donors, or asking our adversaries to influence our elections, Donald Trump always puts his own interests above our nation’s interests.
As President, I will always work toward the best interest of the American people. Julián Castro 16 hours ago:   Thursday Apr 18 - 10:00pm As I’ve said many times, Congress should be subject to the Freedom of Information Act. Now. https://t.co/GstG9V0xjq Julián Castro 17 hours ago:   Thursday Apr 18 - 8:52pm Failure to properly equip our schools and pay our teachers has almost doubled our shortage of educators since 2015. This morning, @rweingarten laid out the crisis at hand and how we can solve it. #FreedomToTeach#FundOurFuturehttps://t.co/EgYpZK49gi Julián Castro 19 hours ago:   Thursday Apr 18 - 6:30pm The American people deserve to hear the full truth. Robert Mueller should testify in front of Congress and the American people. Add your name if you agree. ▶️ https://t.co/nXbgyypMxuhttps://t.co/5l905M0HQ3

We must restore integrity and accountability to the White House. Julián Castro 23 hours ago:   Thursday Apr 18 - 2:23pm Far from exonerating anyone, the Special Counsel report exposes disgraceful behavior by Donald Trump and his inner circle—both in seeking assistance from Russia & attempting to cover it up. Mueller should testify and Congress should investigate charges of obstruction of justice. Julián Castro 1 day ago:   Wednesday Apr 17 - 8:33pm RT @NorthTahoe_Dems: Honored @JulianCastro has now also visited and spoken with @WashoeDEMS.@TheDemocrats have an inspired and inspiring field of candidates and Julián Castro is at the top of this credible, dynamic class. https://t.co/4o5QgbYeWJ
Link to Image Julián Castro 1 day ago:   Wednesday Apr 17 - 7:57pm Donald Trump is once again attempting to use a political appointee to pre-spin a report about an investigation into his own campaign. The full report should be released unimpeded by media stunts. Julián Castro 1 day ago:   Wednesday Apr 17 - 5:50pm Our immigration enforcement system is built around the lie that immigrants present a threat to national security. This lie has allowed Trump & others to demonize and attack immigrants for political gain. My #PeopleFirst immigration plan would overhaul enforcement in this country. https://t.co/2IN5nfYYJs Julián Castro 1 day ago:   Wednesday Apr 17 - 2:46pm Hey y'all.

We’re forced to close our schools because of inaction on the part of lawmakers. Let that sink in. https://t.co/QPnTw9zikf Julián Castro 2 days ago:   Tuesday Apr 16 - 10:51pm Thank you @UChiPolitics and @davidaxelrod for hosting me tonight and allowing me to share my vision for our country’s future.

Invest in renewable energy, cut carbon emissions and convince other countries to do the same. But today we can’t do this, because this POTUS has decided to bury his head in the sand and pretend this isn’t a problem. But we know the truth.

US support for a two-state solution is on the line in November 2020. https://t.co/oDxOfQ7082 Julián Castro 1 week ago:   Monday Apr 8 - 10:59am This is serious.
