October 14

  • Yesterday, Vice President Biden traveled to Florida where he delivered remarks on his vision for older Americans and encouraged Floridians to make a plan to vote.

You can watch full remarks of Pembroke Pines and Miramar
  • Yesterday, the first day of early voting in Texas, Jill Biden traveled to El Paso, Dallas, and Houston to encourage voters to cast their ballots for the Biden-Harris ticket by voting early in their communities.
  • HBCU Times published Kamala Harris’s op-ed on the Biden-Harris pledge to HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) and MSIs (Minority-Serving Institutions) in its fall issue. As a graduate of Howard University, Senator Harris writes that “every signal that we students received at Howard told us that we could be anything. We could come as we were and leave as the people we aspired to be.”
  • Biden for President launched “Looks Out,” a seniors-targeted ad featuring a testimonial from Mike Miller, a Michigan steelworker, about the importance of protecting Social Security. 
  • Biden for President released a new national ad series featuring millennial men in conversation and a rap battle ad with Ultimate Rap League, as the campaign continues its efforts to mobilize Black voters. The “Conversation Series” highlights four young Black men discussing issues impacting Black communities. The series includes five different ads, Bottom Line,” “Hate,” “Just Say,” “Silencedand Resources,” ranging from 15-seconds to 60-seconds.

JOE’S SOCIAL MEDIA TO AMPLIFY 

@JoeBiden: In January, I said President Trump was the worst possible leader to deal with a public health crisis. And everything we’ve been through in the months since has proven that to be true.

@JoeBiden: When President Trump was told one thousand Americans were dying every day from COVID-19, he shrugged it off and said, “it is what it is.”

It is what it is?

This president doesn’t even pretend to care about the Americans he swore to serve. It’s disgraceful.

@JoeBiden: Jill, Kamala, Doug, and our families all extend our warmest wishes to all who observe Yom Kippur. May you have an easy and meaningful fast. And may you be sealed in the Book of Life.

@JoeBiden: Once again, we are called to ask ourselves whether justice could be equally applied in America. But what’s clear is that today in America, Black women deserve better.

@JoeBiden: The Trump Administration says “the entire ACA must fall.” They are arguing to strip millions of Americans of health care in the middle of a pandemic. We can’t let him win.

@JoeBiden: Just months ago, Donald Trump was planning to allow oil and gas drilling off the coast of Florida. Now, with 56 days until the election, he conveniently says that he changed his mind. Unbelievable. You don’t have to guess where I stand: I oppose new offshore drilling.

@JoeBiden: Unlike Donald Trump, I’ll listen to the experts and heed their advice — especially when it comes to matters of health and safety. You should expect nothing less from your president.

@JoeBiden: This economy may be working great for Donald Trump and his wealthy friends — but it’s not working for the rest of America. It’s time we change that.

  • Recent polls including Quinnipiac, Politico/Morning Consult, and YouGov reveal that the American people do not feel safe in Donald Trump’s America: not safe from the spread of COVID-19, not safe from economic ruin, not safe from crime and looting, not safe from racially motivated violence, not safe from bad cops.

@JoeBiden: They’re rooting for chaos and violence because they think it helps them win a second term. Now ask yourself, is that really who you think should be running the country?

@JoeBiden: Heather Heyer was a brave young woman who saw what was happening in her hometown of Charlottesville and decided to fight against it. Let us honor her memory by continuing to stand against hate.

JOE’S TWEETS TO AMPLIFY:

  • @JoeBiden: Don’t forget that in the middle of this pandemic, the Trump Administration is in court trying to eliminate Obamacare and rip health insurance away from millions. It’s heartless. I’ll protect and build on the ACA to ensure everyone gets the care they need.

  • In a recent YouGov poll, Biden is leading Trump in both Wisconsin and Pennsylvania— key battleground states. 

JOE’S TWEETS TO AMPLIFY

@JoeBiden: Every single eligible American should have the opportunity to vote-by-mail this November. If it’s good enough for Donald Trump — then it’s good enough for you and me.

@JoeBIden: It’s been six years since Michael Brown’s life was taken in Ferguson — reigniting a movement. We must continue the work of tackling systemic racism and reforming policing.

@JoeBiden: Giving the Trump administration another four years in office would have catastrophic implications for future generations. His victory would threaten the future of our democracy, and we must vote him out this November

JOE’S TWEETS TO AMPLIFY

@JoeBiden: Every moment with your loved ones is precious. I know that in my core because I’ve learned it through loss. It’s why as president, I’m going to do everything I can to get this virus under control and get our lives back to normal as soon as we can.

@JoeBiden: The fight for civil rights is what drove me to get involved in politics in the first place. It’s why I fought for and helped secure a 25-year extension of the Voting Rights Act. And it’s why as president, I’ll immediately sign the John R. Lewis Voting Rights Act into law.

@JoeBiden: The scenes of death and destruction from Hiroshima and Nagasaki still horrify us 75 years later. They reach through history to remind us of the hideous damage nuclear weapons can inflict—and our collective responsibility to ensure they’re never again used.

  • The latest Ipsos poll conducted for Reuters has Joe up by 11 points over Trump. 

JOE’S TWEETS TO AMPLIFY

@JoeBiden: Weapons of war have no place in our communities. When I was a senator, I took on the @NRA and secured a 10-year ban on assault weapons — and as president, I’ll ban these weapons again.

@JoeBiden: I truly believe that we can revitalize American manufacturing and create a better economy at the same time. I want to build an economy that brings everyone along — one that works for the middle class, not just the wealthy and well-connected.

@JoeBiden: Growing up in Scranton, I learned the importance of hard work, treating others with dignity and respect, and leaving no one behind. Those values have guided my entire life — and they’re the values I’ll bring back to the White House.

@JoeBiden: It’s hard to believe this has to be said, but if I’m elected president, I’ll spend my Monday mornings working with our nation’s top experts to control this virus — not insulting them on Twitter.

JOE’S TWEETS TO AMPLIFY 

@JoeBiden: You won’t have to worry about my tweets when I’m president.

@JoeBiden: It’s not enough to just go back to the way things were before these crises — we need to build back better than ever. We have to create a new American economy where everyone gets a fair return for their work and an equal chance to get ahead.

@JoeBiden: This pandemic has put a bright light on the disparities that have plagued our nation for too long. We’ve got to make sure these communities get the help they need now — and root out the systemic racism that created these inequalities in the first place.—

@JoeBiden: The last three months were the worst period for economic growth our nation has experienced in the 70 years since we started measuring it — a drop of nearly 33 percent. Let’s be clear: This is no act of God, it’s a failure of presidential leadership.

@JoeBiden: Donald Trump has shown that he can’t beat the pandemic or turn the economy around. And he is unsurprisingly stoking the flames of division for political gain. He is the worst possible person to lead our nation through this moment.

@JoeBiden: Donald Trump voted by mail. You should be able to as well.

@JoeBiden: I have no illusions about how tough the road ahead is. But I’m optimistic for one reason above all others: I know the history and the heart of this country. There is nothing we’re unable to achieve when we do it together.

@JoeBiden: Our students and educators deserve better than four more years of Betsy DeVos. It’s time for a Secretary of Education who is actually a public school educator.

@JoeBiden: My plan to create a 21st century care and early childhood education workforce will put 3 million Americans to work — and free up millions more people to join the paid labor force. It’s a fresh, bold approach that will help us recover faster and stronger.

@JoeBiden: In honor of John Lewis, C.T. Vivian, and all the essential workers who have selflessly risked their lives, the Senate should pass a bill that ensures working people get real relief — extended unemployment insurance, rental support, and guaranteed sick leave. #StrikeForBlackLives

JOE’S TWEETS TO AMPLIFY 

@JoeBiden: The hard truth is that it didn’t have to be this bad, but Donald Trump ignored the experts and refused to take action. He has failed our nation.

@JoeBiden: I know of no man with more courage than John Lewis. He was a giant walking among us. When I saw him, I couldn’t help but think one thing: “I haven’t done enough.” May his life and legacy inspire every one of us to strive for justice, equality and what is right.

@JoeBiden: Eleven. That’s how many times we’ve broken the single-day record for new COVID-19 cases in the last month. This virus isn’t going to “just disappear” like President Trump wants. It’s surging — and we need real leadership from this White House to slow its spread.

JOE’S TWEETS TO AMPLIFY

@JoeBiden: I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Donald Trump is the worst possible person to lead us through a public health crisis.

@JoeBiden: We are months into this crisis, and our health care workers are still being forced to reuse masks. It’s unacceptable. Mr. President, fix the PPE shortages before you tee off for yet another round of golf.

July 16

JOE’S TWEETS TO AMPLIFY 

@JoeBiden: There is no time to waste when it comes to addressing the existential threat of climate change. If I have the honor of being elected president, we’ll get to work delivering results on day one.

@JoeBiden: Mr. President, “Open everything now,” isn’t a strategy for success. It’s barely a slogan. It’s long past time for you to step up and do your job.

@JoeBiden: In January, I sounded the alarm regarding COVID-19. Over five months later, President Trump still hasn’t taken the action needed to respond to the virus. It’s unacceptable. This president has failed the American people every step of the way.

@JoeBiden: I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Donald Trump is the most corrupt president in modern American history. Every day that he remains in office, he further threatens the future of our democracy. We have to vote him out this November.

JOE’S TWEETS TO AMPLIFY

@JoeBiden: This is our moment to imagine and build a new American economy — one where everyone gets a fair return for their work and an equal chance to get ahead.

@JoeBiden: Four years of Betsy DeVos is more than enough. We need a Secretary of Education who is actually a public school educator.

Below is Joe Biden’s newsletter for June 16, 2020. Please submit questions and feedback here.

We are at a time for our country that is both deeply challenging and painful, but also at times, hopeful.

We continue to wage a battle against this virus, but our frontline workers and local businesses set an example for us all.

And we are having an important reckoning. Black Lives Matter. Black Voices Matter.

In recent weeks, we’ve seen a record number of people join this campaign, and sign up for emails like this one. Our team is growing, Jane! And thanks to your early support, we have a great campaign to welcome them.

It shows there is a keen interest in making sure we make this campaign as strong as we possibly can. I couldn’t agree more.

So, Jane, you know the drill, I’m going to take this time to update you on what I’ve been up to, where the campaign is moving, and some things I’m reading and thinking about.

I hope you enjoy it. I’m so glad you’re here, I’m so glad you’re on this team. We are better for having you here, and I am better for having a diverse and powerful coalition of people by my side.

Joe At the end of this month is our first end-of-quarter deadline of the general election. You bet people will put our numbers side by side with Trump’s to compare. We have a long way to catch up to him, but I bet if we have a huge month, we can make that gap pretty small. We both know that will send Donald Trump into a tailspin, Jane. So I hope you’ll donate today, $18 or whatever you can spare, directly towards that end-of-quarter number. I’ll be so grateful, I’ll be calling a few people who chip in to this newsletter to thank them myself:If you’ve saved payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:$18 ➞$36 ➞$126 ➞$234 ➞$324 ➞Other ➞What I’m Reading This Week:
“To my white friends, the time for talk has passed. Now is the time for work.” – The Washington Post
A great reflection piece about the way that racism has affected every aspect of life for Black Americans. Does it impact law enforcement? Absolutely. But it’s not just law enforcement, it’s across the board. It’s in housing, it’s in education, it’s in everything we do. An important step we all need to take is acknowledging how real it is, and then doing the work to fix it.  

“Three weeks after Memorial Day, the coronavirus is surging dangerously in states that opened quickly” – The Washington Post
Re-opening safely and strategically not only saves lives, it’s good for business. We can’t rush into this in the short term or we will suffer long-term. I released a plan about opening up safely so that our economy can grow back stronger than ever. You can read it here: https://joebiden.com/reopening/

“Bubba Wallace emerges as NASCAR’s improbable, yet ideally suited change agent” – The Washington Post
NASCAR took a big step in the right direction last week when it banned display of Confederate flags at sporting events and properties. It was the right thing to do and it sent a loud message that hate has no place in this country, and inclusivity in sporting events matters. I applaud this young man for moving this sport, and this country, forward.  

“Doctors Are Covid’s First Historians” – The New York Times
This is a really powerful animated article of what nurses and doctors have experienced over the past three months and counting. It is not a normal virus, these are not typical times, and these are not average people — they are American heroes.  

“Give Black Scientists a Place in This Fight” – The Atlantic
The COVID-19 crisis is disproportionately affecting communities of color and specifically Black communities. We know this. We cannot deny this or turn away from it. Which is why it is important that Black scientists, doctors, leaders, and community members are leading the discussions and solutions.Campaign Updates

June marks Pride Month, and our campaign launched “Out for Biden,” a community for our LGBTQ+ supporters to get involved, volunteer, and be an important voice in our campaign. You can click to learn more and join here >>

Before yesterday, in more than half of states, LGBTQ+ people could get married one day and be fired from their job the next day under state law, simply because of who they are or who they love. But yesterday morning, the Supreme Court issued a landmark 6-3 ruling affirming that LGBTQ+ Americans are entitled to equal rights under the law. You can read my statement here.

The work is not yet finished. This month also saw an incredibly inhumane reversal of protections for transgender people by Trump’s Administration.

During Pride month. Four years to the day that a terrorist killed 49 people — many in the LGBTQ+ community, at Pulse nightclub. It’s despicable, and unacceptable.

I’ve said it before, but transgender rights are one of the big civil rights issues of our time, and this is yet another example of what is on the line this election. I hope you’ll take a moment to watch a conversation I had last month that was very important to me:This past week my campaign released an open letter to Facebook, demanding more accountability and significant changes to its ad policies. We saw in 2016 the role social media can play in swaying an election, especially the spreading of false information.

So far, Facebook has failed to enact any real reforms to stop the spread of disinformation on its platform. And with less than 150 days until Election Day, time is running out.

Read our open letter here and sign on to demand Facebook change its policies:Like I mentioned earlier, my team and I released a plan for re-opening the economy in a way that is safe, smart, and intentional. You can read the Biden plan for an effective re-opening that jumpstarts the economy here.

My team has also been hard at work updating our COVID-19 plans for health and safety as well as for the economy with the latest information — the kind of thing an administration should be tracking and updating. You can read all of my team’s plans to date on the website here. I know these plans will help a lot of people, and I hope you will see some that will help you and your family, Jane.READ THE POLICY PLANS >>Finally, this past week I had the honor of meeting the family of George Floyd in Houston, Texas. I promised them George would not just become another hashtag — and I intend to keep that promise.

His family needs justice. His daughters need justice. And we need real police reform to ensure this never occurs again. Because when we do nothing — it occurs again.

I’ve called on Congress to:

– Outlaw chokeholds,
– Improve oversight and accountability,
– Create a model use of force standard,
– And stop the transfer of weapons of war to local police forces.

It’s just a start, it’s nowhere near enough. But Congress can do it, and they needed to do it a long time ago.

You can join us in signing our petition that demands Congress ban chokeholds and pass the real reform we need urgently, now:Hey, Joe!

Question from Nancy in New Jersey: This is a difficult time for us. I have two black sons, what would you tell them about the future of this country?
This moment is a wake-up call, it really is. Systemic racism is a deep wound in our society, and we cannot let this wound scab up again without addressing the underlying problems, or we’ll never fully heal. I would tell your sons that George Floyd’s words didn’t die with him. They are echoing across the country and they speak to a nation that has lost more than 117,000 people to a virus, where tens of millions of people have lost their jobs, and we can’t ignore that the Black community is being hit the hardest both in terms of health and economically. There are things we can and must do to chip away at systemic racism and reform law enforcement — and with the right leadership we can make progress. And if I’m elected president I will not only lead on these issues, but I promise to listen, too.

Question from Jason in California: How do you stay positive right now?
For me, it all comes down to family. Especially my grandkids, who are smart and engaged and determined to make their mark on this country and leave it better than they found it. They inspire me. We will get through this, and we will do it by taking care of ourselves and one another.Spread the Faith

Black-led organizations and nonprofits have seen an outpouring of support with people across the country donating to organizations, signing petitions, and joining movements. 

My campaign was able to fundraise for the NAACP, and I’m proud to report we raised hundreds of thousands of dollars through grassroots supporters such as yourself, Jane. I’m so grateful, and I want to keep up the momentum. 

If you’re able, will you consider donating to the NAACP if you haven’t already, or donating again if you already have? You can do that here:DONATE TO THE NAACPWhat’s Coming

Grassroots fundraiser with President Obama. Had to save this for last, Jane. On Tuesday, June 23rd, my friend Barack Obama and I are holding a virtual fundraiser for anyone who chips in to buy a ticket, any amount. Keep an eye on your inbox for more information and some more special opportunities surrounding the event.

In the meantime, you can chip in here any amount to buy your ticket and my team will send you a link to the virtual fundraiser on June 23rd:BUY A TICKETThanks for reading, Jane. It means a lot to me,
