If you keep on going, we will elect Bernie -- Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.One will lose to Donald Trump. And the White House and the Senate and some of the statehouses will all go red, and then between gerrymandering and appointing judges, for the next 20 or 30 years, we're going to live with this catastrophe.
I recognize that NDAs, particularly when they are used in the context of sexual harassment and sexual assault, promote a culture of silence in the workplace and contribute to a culture of women not feeling safe or supported, it is imperative that when problems occur, workplaces not only address the specific incidents, but the culture and practices that led to those incidents. And then leaders must act.
When we share a respect for each other and treat all of our colleagues as we ourselves would wish to be treated, we all do our best work. This is something Donald Trump does not understand — not when Donald Trump ran Donald Trump business, and not now when Donald Trump is recklessly running our country, i will be a leader whom women can trust.
We will not create the energy and excitement we need to defeat President Donald Trump if that candidate pursued, advocated for and enacted racist policies like stop and frisk which caused communities of color in his city to live in fear, the simple truth is that Mayor Bloomberg with all his money will not create the kind of excitement and energy we need to have the voter turnout we must have to defeat President Donald Trump.
I defended it for too long I think because I didn't understand the unintended pain it caused to young black and brown kids and their families. I should have acted sooner and faster to stop it and for that I have apologized, i've spent a lot of time with black leaders and community members. I've listened to their stories, I've heard their pain, their confusion, their anger and I've learned from them and I think I've grown from them.

Because we put all the cops in the minority neighborhoods. Yes, that is true. Why did we do it ? Because that's where all the crime is, and the way you get the guns out of the kid's hands is to throw them up against the walls and frisk them.
We're adding people to Committee for Mike every day because more and more leaders see Mike as the best candidate to defeat Donald Trump. In addition to supporting Mike and activating their networks, members are also encouraged to donate to the Democratic party, state parties and progressive groups, because the only way Democrats will win in November is if we have a strong party infrastructure.
The bottom line is there is no excuse for the political stunt just because The President had made a commitment when The President ran for office and afterwards, the President can not get it done and deliver for The President constituency. The President should just stand up and say I tried and let's get on with the next thing.
In November, voters inthree California citieswill take up the issue, and it may also come before voters in Boulder, Colorado, when cities lead the way, solutions that were once considered non-starters can quickly catch fire and spread around the world. It would not be the first revolution Philadelphia has sparked.
