So happy to be at @Netroots_Nation today. Grassroots activists are the heart of the progressive movement #NN18
I’ve learned the most by doing. I’ve knocked on doors in Orange County, California to help convince voters to throw Republicans out of Congress.
I’ve rallied with thousands of people in Salt Lake City, Utah to demand that the president re-unite immigrant families immediately. #NN18
And I’ve been talking to voters in town halls from Denver to Minneapolis – Orlando to right here in New Orleans just last night. #SteyerTownHall #NN18

We are building a movement of people who are ready to retake Washington, state houses, and city halls. I believe in 2018 we will win. #NN18
We’ve registered 80,000 people to vote. We have tens of thousands of young people across the country carrying our message door-to-door, phone-to-phone, and online.
We’ve held more than 40 town halls and candidate forums in communities across the country.

Mr. Bannon got his hands on Mr. Trump’s electoral strategy again. Since the interview ran three times this weekend, we can expect more racism, nationalism, and chicanery than ever. They won’t stop until every minority has been demonized.
Mr. Bannon made it clear—Impeachment will motivate base voters. This is inevitable. The question is whether Congressional Democrats will have the courage to stand up with their base.
What are we talking about? Why should voters listen? Any politically minded person should know this: in the 75 most competitive congressional races, 67% of the @Need2Impeach signers are infrequent midterm voters. WE WILL NOT STOP giving them a reason to show up on Nov. 6.

My response to Mr. Trump's budget:

If you follow the money to understand priorities and values, Donald Trump’s irresponsible budget plan will make your hair stand on end. (/1)
First, his infrastructure scam neglects crucial environmental protections for our air, water, and wildlife, while allowing the billionaires in his cabinet and his corporate allies to build dirty fossil fuel pipelines and toxic waste dumps that harm our communities. (/2)
It also continues his misguided and execrable racist agenda with a direct assault on communities of color by proposing a $25 billion wall between the U.S. and Mexico. (/3)

If you didn’t think that speech reflected the real state of the union under Trump, you’re not alone. 59 percent of Americans believe this is the “lowest point in our nation’s history that they can remember.”…
Trump conveniently forgot a few things from the past year:
Remember when the Interior Dept. shut down its Twitter accounts after tweets showed Trump's inauguration crowd was far smaller than Obama's? That was just Day 1.

Like you, I was disappointed with the Democratic leadership's choice to end the shutdown without securing protection for Dreamers. We ask the American people to trust that Democrats have their best interests at heart, but it's just empty words if we cave when it matters the most.
It's not enough to just be a little better than Donald Trump and the GOP. We have to be principled and trustworthy. We have to do what's right and not just what's convenient.
Our impeachment effort, nearly four and a half million strong, grows by thousands every day. The other night, we asked our list a few questions in a poll about DACA and the Dreamers. The answers were illuminating:
