Hi @JoeBiden and @realDonaldTrump! We're going to teach little kids tomorrow about your debate tomorrow morning on https://www.LittleNewsEars.com We wish you the best of luck!

The Trump administration’s threats to defund Seattle, Portland, and New York are a gross misuse of federal power and blatantly unlawful. Trump, the Department of Justice, and Barr’s obsession with Seattle and me is irrational and most importantly, a huge distraction.
