Happy birthday @SpeakerPelosi
, and thank you for your extraordinary leadership.
We all do better when we work together (even when we’re apart). twitter.com/chefjoseandres…
Congress needs to act to make voting by mail the norm going forward, with the specifics outlined by election expert Marc Elias below to make it accessible for all. twitter.com/marceelias/sta…
, and other local partners have come together with our @ClintonCenter
staff to feed @lrsd
students affected by the school closures in Central Arkansas. I’m grateful to everyone working on this effort.
America has always been at its best when we pull together in common cause. The challenges we face will require sacrifice, but we all have a responsibility to do everything we can to keep one another safe. If you don’t absolutely need to leave home—don’t.
The COVID-19 pandemic is forcing all of us to change the way we live and work—but doing so will save lives.
I remember the day you were born like it was yesterday. Being your dad is the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Happy birthday, @ChelseaClinton
Happy 80th birthday, @repjohnlewis
. I'm grateful every day for your leadership, friendship, and example.
Good to be back in Puerto Rico. The partners we’ve met are powerful examples of what’s possible when you bring people together with the simple goal of trying to improve lives.
I hope you’ll join us as the conversation continues: live.clintonfoundation.org twitter.com/clintonfdn/sta…
Today, I’ll be visiting @ClintonFdn
partners and @ClintonGlobal
commitment-makers who are supporting the ongoing recovery and resilience efforts in Puerto Rico. I’ll be posting updates on Instagram, follow along: instagram.com/clintonfoundat…
It’s not every day that I find myself in agreement with Russian leaders, but today I argue that the U.S. should accept their offer to extend #NewSTART
— the only agreement that limits the size of our nuclear forces. We must avoid a return to brinksmanship. nytimes.com/2020/02/10/opi…
I’m grateful for the terrific job Judge Batts did in her 25+ years on the bench. Her wisdom and compassion will be missed, but her remarkable impact on America's justice system will endure. twitter.com/clintonfdn/sta…
Congratulations to the Kansas City @Chiefs
on a hard-fought victory in #SuperBowlLIV
The aid package worked. The Mexican economy began growing again within a year, and Mexico paid back the loan in full, plus $600M in interest, 3 years ahead of schedule. It is always a good policy to be a good neighbor 🇺🇸🇲🇽.
25 years ago today, the US pledged $20B in aid to prevent the collapse of Mexico’s economy. Many people said that we should not get involved and let Mexico fend for themselves—but it was the right thing to do for Mexico and for the US.
I have had the opportunity to meet so many inspiring and talented people in this program with diverse backgrounds, working across sectors, from all over the country. I look forward to meeting our incoming class! twitter.com/ClintonCenter/…
I’m deeply saddened by the tragic loss of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, & all who died in today's accident. Kobe lived a very large life in a very short time. My prayers are with Vanessa, Natalia, Bianka, Capri, and all those who lost loved ones today. wjcf.co/2U0jiZY

Albright was sworn in as U.S. Secretary of State. Nominated by President @BillClinton
, she was the first woman to serve in that role.
I liked and admired Jim Lehrer. He believed news is a public good, not a commodity. And he was always completely on the level in reporting, interviewing, and moderating debates. His life was a gift that strengthened our democracy.
I was proud to sign the bill making MLK Day a national day of service. 25 years later, Americans have given millions of hours to improve our country, proving true Dr. King’s belief that “everyone can be great because everyone can serve.”
Honor him by doing your part today.
Martin Luther King Jr. said, “There is an invisible book of life that faithfully records our vigilance or our neglect.”
We must remain vigilant in defending and advancing the progress he lived and died to achieve—today, tomorrow, and every day.
We did everything we could to help Los Angelinos get back on their feet. 26 years later, we can and should do it again - and help our fellow Americans in Puerto Rico. twitter.com/lacity/status/…
My heart is with the people of Haiti. Today and every day I remember those who lost their lives in the earthquake, including my colleagues from the UN, and those who persevere to build a future worthy of their labors, gifts, and sacrifices.
I know there's a lot going on in the world but what's going on in Puerto Rico, with the earthquakes, is very important, and deserve everyone's attention.
Proud the work of @ClintonFdn
continues. We’re responding in wake of natural disasters with @ClintonGlobal
; helping children lead healthier lives via @HealthierGen
; and inspiring the next generation of leaders with @PLSprogram
I remain hopeful that Brexit will respect the Good Friday Accords and the sacrifice and vision of so many people, more than two decades ago.
I care deeply about the people of Northern Ireland, and I’m thankful their leaders are coming together in the spirit of the Good Friday Accords to stand-up the Executive and restore the government functions that people of all communities require.
The devastation caused by the wildfires in Australia is heartbreaking. Here are some ways to help:
From responding in the wake of natural disasters to helping children lead healthier lives — when you give to the Clinton Foundation, you’re helping improve lives across the United States and around the world. wjcf.co/33IfTQk
If there’s anyone with the strength and courage to fight this, it’s you, John. Hillary and I love you, and we join with millions of other Americans in praying for you and your family. twitter.com/cnnpolitics/st…
Felix Rohatyn was a creative problem solver. I will always be grateful for his service as Ambassador to France when I was President, during which he helped strengthen the bonds of friendship between our countries and develop new means of cooperation. Hillary & I mourn his loss.
Terrific day visiting @ClintonFdn
programs across New York City — I’m grateful for our partners who are making a real difference to improve the lives of local children, families, and communities.
& I worked hard on this issue, especially adoptions out of foster care, which increased 80% in 4 yrs after Congress acted in a bi-partisan way to simplify & speed up the process. Grateful to all who worked on it, including Tom DeLay, an adoptive parent himself.
Congratulations to you and your family, Michael. This is a beautiful story. Our country could use more of it.
Our shared belief in the power of possibility drives our work at the @ClintonFdn
. And on #GivingTuesday
, when so many come together for good, you can help us create hope. wjcf.co/380IUu0
, we should stand with all those living with HIV/AIDS, remember those who have lost their lives and their loved ones to the epidemic, and recommit ourselves to ending it once and for all.
Glad you’re home and doing well, Mr. President. Happy Thanksgiving to you, Rosalynn, and your family. twitter.com/cartercenter/s…
Look forward to bringing this talented group of young leaders together in Edinburgh for #CGIU2020
The 1990s were a period of unprecedented economic growth (h/t @BillClinton
!). Tune in today to a conference Bill and I are hosting out of Little Rock to review what worked then and how we can all help now to build an economy that leaves no one behind. twitter.com/ClintonCenter/…
I hope you’ll tune in today as we discuss proven policies and new approaches for expanding economic opportunities for all Americans. twitter.com/clintoncenter/…
Every American who has ever put on this nation’s uniform in war or in peace has assumed risks and made sacrifices on our common behalf. Today we should join as one and thank them and their families for the debts we can never fully repay.

Kay Hagan loved the people of North Carolina and served them with honor, integrity, and skill. I’m saddened by her loss.
John Conyers was a champion for justice & equality who spent over 50 years in Congress fighting for the people of Detroit & beyond—including by co-sponsoring the Voting Rights Act, taking a role in the creation of Medicare & defending the Constitution on the Judiciary Committee.
Great time on Saturday visiting the Wash World Laundromat to see how our programs are helping families turn an everyday routine into an investment in their children's future. twitter.com/clintonfdn/sta…
Today's visit "was part of a much larger project from @2SmallToFail
... The initiative helps turn otherwise utilitarian spaces like laundries, groceries and clinics into places where parents and caregivers can read, talk and play. nola.com/article_75891d…
