President Donald J. Trump
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C.   20500


Dear Mr. President,


As you are increasingly making clear to the American people, the coronavirus is very serious and spreading quickly around the world and across our country.  As this pandemic spreads, you are giving us the proper cooperative and voluntary protocols:  stay home, wash your hands often and practice social distancing.


A bold agenda of change is vital to beating Donald Trump

March 16, 2020

Sunday’s Democratic debate between Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden made one thing clear: Sanders may not be winning the most states, but he is winning the message battle of direction and priorities. He represents where most Democrats are — in their hearts and their heads — on the issues. Former Vice President Biden is winning on electability — on the belief that he would be the better candidate to take on President Trump.

Why I support Sen. Bernie Sanders

March 10, 2020

I am proud to endorse Sen. Bernie Sanders for president of the United States.

While I consider Joe Biden, his opponent for the Democratic Party nomination, a decent man, I stand with Sanders.

Here is why.

I stand with Sanders because it is vital that President Donald Trump be voted out of office in November. Poll after poll has shown that Bernie Sanders leads Trump, generally with a greater margin than other contenders. Sanders has the highest popular approval rating of any public official in America.


No, President Trump, the never-ending war in Afghanistan is not ending

March 2, 2020

Don’t fall for the hype.

That is the one lesson that we all should have learned about President Donald Trump. He’s a salesman, not a statesman. He offers up fantasies, not facts.

The most recent agreement with the Taliban in Afghanistan is a clear example of this.

In the 2016 campaign, Trump had the good sense to promise to end America’s forever wars and bring the troops home. Afghanistan, our longest war now in its 19th year, is a classic example.


The important word in ‘democratic socialism’ is ‘democratic’

February 24, 2020

After the Nevada caucuses, Bernie Sanders is now the front-runner in the Democratic presidential race.

In South Carolina, the next primary, former Vice President Joe Biden is the favorite, buoyed by his support among African American voters. But Sanders will come into the state with real momentum, having won the popular vote in each of the first three contests.


Kerner Report set standard for what a serious presidential candidate should champion

February 17, 2020

As the Democratic presidential primaries move onto Nevada, South Carolina and the many Super Tuesday states, candidates turn their attention to people of color, and particularly African Americans.

Many candidates find their rhetoric contradicted by their record; their promises conflicting with their performances.

Donald Trump now seeks to woo black voters by taking credit for the economy, by touting the first steps in reducing mass incarceration, and by hyping so-called “opportunity zones.”
