U.S. senator from New Jersey and Democratic candidate for president.
Thank you, @RepJohnRCKing, for your leadership in South Carolina and for having faith in me. Your activism on so many issues—education, investment in rural communities—inspires. We’re lucky to have you on the team! https://www.apnews.com/bf210950da8b44fc9591f506c90090c7
Today there are more Black men in our criminal justice system than were enslaved in 1850. If you care about fixing our broken criminal justice system—and you should—tune in to #FindingJusticeBET hosted by @SoledadOBrien Sunday 9/8c.
My granddad was one of the first black members of the Ford UAW. His union was an advocate for him—eventually enabling him to send my mom to college. I know what a strong labor movement can do for American families, and I know we need to do a better job making the case.
Wishing everyone who celebrates a wonderful and joyous Holi. What an awesome reminder of the victory of light over darkness and good over evil. #HappyHoli
Absolutely devastating—we need Medicare for all. https://nbcnews.to/2FgPJdy
My heart is with the thousands displaced & over 200 killed in southeastern Africa as a result of Cyclone Idai—possibly the worst disaster ever to hit the southern hemisphere. Please do what you can to help victims: https://to.pbs.org/2FfAEJ6
What we say about other people often says more about us than who we're talking about. I believe you judge a leader not by how they push people down but how they help them up—and President Trump has a lot to learn.

The historic flooding in the Midwest is heartbreaking—homes destroyed, entire farms wiped out—and further proof that we need to fix our nation’s infrastructure & address climate change.

The vast majority of gun owners in America believe in and support common-sense gun safety measures like universal background checks. The problem is we have members of Congress who seem more concerned about the NRA than what will actually make us safer. https://www.njtvonline.org/news/video/booker-discusses-importance-common-sense-gun-safety/

@CoryBooker ty Cory! “Love means that I see you, I see your worth, I see your dignity,” Booker said at that rally last month. “Your destiny is my destiny.” https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/18/opinion/cory-booker-2020.html

“The privileged can break laws and not have to worry about it. There’s no difference between blacks and whites for using marijuana, or even selling marijuana, but blacks are almost four times more likely to be convicted,” said Sen. @CoryBooker. https://interc.pt/2Tkm1t4
In Davenport, Iowa this weekend, Sen. @CoryBooker offered veiled criticism of the light-hearted way two of his rivals for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senators @KamalaHarris and @BernieSanders, have joked about their past use of marijuana. https://interc.pt/2TSyQiH

“Now we have presidential candidates, senators, bragging about their pot use while there are kids who can’t get a job because they have a nonviolent offense for doing things that two of the last three presidents did,” said Sen. @CoryBooker. https://interc.pt/2TkmUlo

Worth reading by @davidcicilline - when we finally wake up from our learned helplessness on antitrust, these companies will have used the time to make reform harder. @ewarren and @CoryBooker have been talking about this and more candidates should be. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/19/opinion/facebook-antitrust-investigation.html
Critical military construction projects like those at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard could lose funding to pay for Trump's border wall. Congress voted to revoke this emergency declaration—we should not put our national security at risk for a wall we don't need. https://www.fosters.com/news/20190318/shipyard-funds-eyed-to-build-border-wall
I've reached out to David—this type of fear-mongering from President Trump is just a weak attempt to distract from his disastrous tax cuts. https://www.cnbc.com/2019/03/17/trump-criticizes-gm-over-lordstown-ohio-facility-closure.html
So so grateful and honored to have you on the team! https://twitter.com/marygeren/status/1106555206706307074
David Brooks is basically right about @CoryBooker. But I think the message is missing one key element. But I’ll save that one element for Cory. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/03/18/opinion/cory-booker-2020.html
there could be 100 people in a room, and 99 don’t believe in you, but all it takes is one, and that one is @CoryBooker tweeting about coffee. https://twitter.com/bananafitz/status/1107758387809251329
It’s not enough to simply decriminalize marijuana—we must repair the damage done to those communities that have been most harmed by the failed War on Drugs, and we must expunge the records of those who have served their time. https://www.newsweek.com/cory-booker-asks-government-legalize-marijuana-again-time-presidential-1356074
Trump’s ban on transgender Americans serving in the military is insulting and deeply un-American. The next president should immediately end this ridiculous policy—if elected, I plan to do so. https://www.nbcnews.com/feature/nbc-out/cory-booker-pledges-undo-trump-s-un-american-trans-military-n984341
I love that our town halls aren't just opportunities for me to meet voters - they're opportunities for people to meet one another, to share ideas, to form community. Thank you, Davenport!

What’s one of the best ways we can lift more Americans out of poverty, whether they live in Newark or in rural Iowa? Expanding access to the earned income tax credit. Great discussion today with @JDScholten and @JosephNSanberg on this important topic.
Thanks so much for coming out! https://twitter.com/zach_bernstein/status/1107076158372368384
If you're struggling to make ends meet— Worrying about your kids having access to clean water and air— If your health care bills are causing more pain than comfort— you aren’t alone. We need to channel our common pain into a common purpose.
I don't care if you're a first-generation American or if your roots here go back centuries. We are one nation under God, and if I have my way, I'm going to make us a lot more indivisible.
Here’s what a political system without the poisonous influence of the NRA looks like: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cnn.com/cnn/2019/03/15/asia/new-zealand-gun-control-intl/index.html
We must have a beloved community—where health care is a right & child poverty is a wrong. Where we say proudly & boldly that everyone who works a full time job can have a living wage. Thank you New Hampshire for welcoming me into your homes to listen to my vision for our nation.
Congratulations, Dylan! I am so happy for you. Your story gave me hope today. https://twitter.com/CBSEveningNews/status/1106319888799465473
Grateful for the incredible community of folks who took the time to meet with me this morning in Lebanon, New Hampshire.
@hennessey4nh - thank you for being such a great host. New Hampshire 5 is lucky to have you!
I’m sickened by the news coming out of New Zealand—the horrific terrorist attack targeting Muslims at prayer that killed at least 49 people. The rising tide of white supremacy and Islamophobia around the globe must be met with our determination to work against hate.
Black history is American history. Too often we treat it like a footnote. Glad to see the Evers' home—and their legacy—being recognized. https://twitter.com/benniegthompson/status/1105635870869204993

Constantly inspired by the resolve of the families of Sandy Hook victims and grateful for their leadership in holding the NRA and gun industry accountable.

Today’s historic vote should make it clear to the Administration that US involvement in the horrific Yemen war must end. Congress must reassert its constitutional role & end US support for the Saudi-led coalition’s war which has caused the worst humanitarian crisis on the planet.
Our country celebrates the ideals of equality but not every American enjoys them. We don't have equal rights when an LGBTQ American can be denied justice at work, home or elsewhere because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. I'm proud to support the #EqualityAct.
Let me repeat: This is further proof that our criminal justice system is broken. There are thousands of people—mostly people of color and low-income Americans—with much longer sentences for minor drug offenses. We've got to do better. https://twitter.com/JoyAnnReid/status/1105864238369783818
And there are countless more burdened by intergenerational poverty for whom college was never an option. This problem extends beyond celebrity—we need to address the wealth gap and the injustices it creates. https://twitter.com/IsaacDovere/status/1105492759136358403
Inspired! I applaud @GavinNewsom’s decision to impose a moratorium on this immoral and ineffective policy. Because of his leadership and the activism of people across the country, 737 human beings will not be put to death in the name of the people. https://twitter.com/nytimes/status/1105661017873358848
If you want more kindness in the world: be more kind. If you want more love in the world: be more loving. If you want more hope in the world: be an agent of hope in another’s life. One small ray of light can lead the world out of darkness.
The vast majority of Americans agree that we need critical common-sense gun safety measures like an assault weapons ban and universal background checks. We need to elect more people to office who represent the will of the American people, not the NRA.
As president I will continue to fight to legalize marijuana, but we should go further—we need to expunge records and reinvest in communities most hurt by the failed drug war. Let's focus on restorative justice, not just ending the prohibition on marijuana. https://twitter.com/hashomatic/status/1104864826369687552
The US spends more on health care per person than any other country in the world yet we report worse health outcomes than our peer nations. Medicare for All is the best way to ensure that every American has access to quality, affordable health care.
