Barbecue isn’t magic, but coming together for a meal can help facilitate some important conversations and build new relationships. Glad to relaunch this bipartisan Senate tradition in honor of my friend, Sen. Johnny Isakson—a man who always strives to bring people together.
Honored to meet today with EU Executive VP @TimmermansEU alongside @SenatorBraun to discuss bipartisan climate solutions and how we can work together to overcome the climate challenges facing the United States and the world.
Impressed by the First State and @JohnCarneyDE for working to make Delaware a cleaner, more sustainable state. #GoodToBeFirst news.delaware.gov/2021/09/17/gov…
I'm closely watching developments in Khartoum and condemn any attempt by military leaders to undermine #Sudan’s transition. I support @SudanPMHamdok & civilian leaders' efforts to advance peace & democracy. Security sector reform & civilian oversight of the military are critical.
As long as the coronavirus exists somewhere, it will continue to threaten the health & economic well-being of Americans here at home. I support President Biden’s efforts to lead the world in securing commitments to vaccinate 70% of the planet by Sept 2022. npr.org/2021/09/22/103…
As we fight COVID-19 here at home, we need to continue our efforts overseas. That’s why today, I announced we’re increasing our total vaccine donation to over 1.1 billion doses — more than every other country combined. That’s American leadership on the global stage.

Sixty years ago, President Kennedy signed legislation that established the Peace Corps. Today, I send my gratitude to all returned Peace Corps Volunteers—including hundreds of Delawareans—who answered the call to serve and build new relationships since 1961. #PeaceCorpsNow
This is unacceptable. Preventing the SBA from having leadership in place is slowing aid to small businesses and workers at a critical time in our recovery. Syed is well-qualified for this position and he deserves consideration and a vote. #ConfirmDilawar
Today I attended a Small Business Committee hearing to consider Dilawar Syed’s nomination to help lead @SBAgov. Not one of my Republican colleagues attended, blocking his nomination for the third time. sbc.senate.gov/public/index.c…
I was honored to join @TheICCFGroup last night to celebrate global leaders in conservation and recognize Colombian President @IvanDuque for his outstanding leadership in fighting deforestation in the Amazon and advancing our shared climate goals.
ACT for #ALS has the most cosponsors of any bill that has not received a vote on the House floor. Republicans and Democrats agree—it’s time to get this passed. #ACTforALS

I look forward to supporting the President’s agenda and working with members of both parties in Congress to make sure the United States leads by the power of its example.
As the President said, “The future belongs to those who embrace human dignity” and “Democracy remains the best tool we have to unleash our full potential.”
The President laid out his vision for saving lives now, vaccinating the world, and Building Back Better by supporting and financing infrastructure consistent with international best practices and standards.
President Biden is determined to lead, but we the U.S. will not go it alone as we end the pandemic, tackle the climate crisis, ensure the responsible development of emerging technologies, and combat terrorism with a modern approach.
In his first address to the UN General Assembly as President, @POTUS reaffirmed his commitment to rebuilding alliances and revitalizing partnerships by focusing on the challenges of the present and the future, not the challenges of the past. #UNGA
Strong, forceful, and welcome message from President Biden at #UNGA: The United States can once again pull the world together to confront our challenges – from the pandemic to climate change. twitter.com/atrupar/status…
Climate change is driving migration, poverty, loss of life, and loss of opportunity. We have to see how all of this is connected and we have to hear a call toward a just transition if we are to be faithful. #ClimateWeekNYC
One of the most important investments students can make in themselves and their futures is to apply to college. No matter the institution, making this commitment can open doors to lifelong opportunities. Submit your application today! #WhyApply twitter.com/American_CAC/s…
I was honored to join @annenbcnews to kickoff the @NotreDame Forum on a just transition to a sustainable future, and to be on campus when the university’s president, Rev. John Jenkins, announced that Notre Dame will be carbon-neutral by 2050. Go Irish!  magazine.nd.edu/stories/heedin…
We’re going to pay for climate change one way or the other – we should make some hard choices up front and proactively invest in leaving our children and grandchildren a cleaner and more sustainable world.
We’ve seen the cost of inaction on climate, from the devastation of the California wildfires to flooding in my hometown of Wilmington after Hurricane Ida. 🧵
Today, we mark a year without Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. While her absence is heavy on the hearts of many Americans today, her life and legacy continue to serve as inspiration for us all to uphold justice & march persistently toward equality. May her memory be a blessing.
Joined the Delaware Vol. Firefighter’s Assoc. to celebrate 100 years of service. From fighting fires in the west to assisting with flooding & pandemic response at home, our firefighters & EMTs are always there for us. I’m committed to ensuring they have the resources they need.
HBCUs – in particular – are engines of opportunity for students, producing top graduates and world class research. Take the next step and invest in your future by applying to some of America’s premier institutions. #WhyApply
Join me in helping encourage and inspire students to apply to college this year using the hashtag #WhyApply! twitter.com/American_CAC/s…
My full statement with @SenatorMenendez on the Executive Order on Ethiopia signed by President Biden today: coons.senate.gov/news/press-rel…
In the coming weeks, Chairman Menendez and I will unveil a new legislative effort that builds on today's action by the WH to drastically bolster U.S. efforts to pursue accountability for the carnage in northern Ethiopia and help galvanize a political process to end the conflict.
I fully support President Biden’s continued focus and engagement on the crisis in #Ethiopia. Ongoing human rights abuses warrant an unequivocal response: We will not tolerate war crimes, crimes against humanity, and ethnic violence. cnn.com/2021/09/17/pol…
Why invest in rail infrastructure? This new @Amtrak & @Siemens ALC-42 is why we must invest — to boost our transit system for better, faster & more efficient travel. The Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act will invest $66B in rail, helping create high-quality, good-paying jobs.
During #HispanicHeritageMonth, we celebrate the Hispanic community in Delaware and across the country, which has played a vital role in shaping our history, culture, and identity. This month, we recognize their immense contributions to our communities each and every day.
Proud to join my friend @SenatorWarnock in supporting the inclusion of the Community Revitalization Fund in Build Back Better legislation. This Fund would directly support community-led civic infrastructure projects that complement affordable housing investments.
G’mar Chatima Tovah to all those observing Yom Kippur, the holiest day in Judaism. To the Jewish community in Delaware and beyond, I wish you an easy fast and a meaningful day of atonement and reflection.
One year ago, the UAE took the bold step to normalize relations with Israel by signing the #AbrahamAccords. I was pleased to see Bahrain, Morocco, and Sudan followed. I will continue to support the spirit of this effort and encourage other countries to follow their example.
For anyone who knows or is a child abuse victim, there are professional trauma-informed child welfare centers around the country to help you seek justice. What happened in this case should not ever have to happen again. nationalcac.org/find-a-cac/
I was struck by the strength, determination, and persistence of these four women and others in pursuit of accountability in this investigation. Thank you for the courage to testify today and to insist on justice. npr.org/2021/09/15/103…
I appreciate the work of all State Dept. & USG personnel working tirelessly to support evacuations & repatriations of Americans & Afghans. I look forward to continuing to coordinate with all agencies of the U.S. government, advocacy groups, & partners to complete these efforts.
I’m also encouraged today to see the launch of the bipartisan, national organization @welcomeus supported by three former presidents – Presidents Bush, Obama, and Clinton – and dozens of faith groups and nonprofits to welcome Afghans to the United States. twitter.com/welcomeus/stat…
I was pleased to hear from Secretary Blinken that the State Department is continuing their work to expand SIV eligibility and evacuate personnel affiliated with U.S.-funded institutions like @RFERL, @NEDemocracy, AUAF, and other civil society partners across Afghanistan.
As we hear from @SecBlinken on the issues before us in Afghanistan, I’m focused on evacuating remaining US citizens & Afghans at risk, ensuring humanitarian access & maintaining counterterrorism capacity. I’m glad the Biden admin & the State Dept. are focused on these challenges.
Why does climate resiliency matter? With so many folks living in flood-prone communities burdening inequities of climate change, there’s a critical need for robust funding – like $46B in the Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act – to tackle climate resiliency & flood mitigation.
This National #SmallBusinessWeek, we recognize and celebrate small business owners across Delaware and the nation for their contributions to our economy and resiliency in the face of COVID-19. Show your support for Delaware small businesses this week by shopping local!
Millions of Americans – particularly younger Americans – are eager to serve their community and address climate change. That’s why we’re working to make the Civilian Climate Corps a reality. twitter.com/SenSchumer/sta…
Today, we commemorate the near 3,000 people killed on the 9/11 attacks and the thousands more injured, and we send love to their beloved ones. We find strength in broken place. We find light in the darkness. And we find purpose to repair and rebuild. We will #NeverForget.
Delaware saw the highest number of COVID-19 cases since January. 665 positive results just today. Folks, vaccines are saving lives and protecting us and those around us – and they work. If you haven’t been vaccinated yet, please join the 500,000+ Delawareans that have. twitter.com/tough_schmidt_…
Do you hear that? It’s the sound of the bipartisan infrastructure bill bringing good-paying union jobs to Delaware’s largest port, and $17B to modernizing our nation’s essential ports and waterways for the benefit of all Americans.
The Texas law violates constitutionally protected reproductive rights, period. I’m glad to see Attorney General Garland bring the full force of President Biden’s Justice Department to bear against the state’s abortion ban. twitter.com/therecount/sta…
