what Donald Trump said

I'm asking you to help Democrats stand up to injustice
Friend --

Today, Donald Trump attacked me on Twitter. He said that I'm "all talk" and "no action."

I've been beaten bloody, tear-gassed, fighting for what's right for America. I've marched at Selma with Dr. King. Sometimes that's what it takes to move our country in the right direction.

We refuse to stop now. We're not done fighting for progress. We're ready for the next four years.

Are you with us? Join me and chip in whatever you can today to help Democrats stand up to injustice.

While we have made progress toward a vision of a more fair, just and open country, the majority of Americans are afraid this country is headed in the wrong direction.

Some leaders reject decades of progress and want to return to the dark past, when the power of law was used to deny the freedoms protected by the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and its Amendments.

I remember when segregation was the law of the land that ordered our society in the Deep South. The forces of law and order in Alabama were so strong that to take a stand against this injustice, we had to be willing to sacrifice our lives for our cause.

It took massive, well-organized, non-violent dissent and criticism of this great nation and its laws to move toward a greater sense of equality in America. We had to sit in. We had to stand in. We had to march. And that's why more than 50 years ago, a group of unarmed citizens, black and white, gathered on March 7, 1965, in an orderly peaceful non-violent fashion to walk from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama.

Often, the only way we could demonstrate that a law on the books violated a higher law was by challenging that law. By putting our bodies on the line and showing the world the unholy price we had to pay for dignity and respect.

We need leaders who will stand up and speak up and speak out for Americans, not someone who will work against us. Not someone who will move us backwards.

That's why I will do everything in my power to take on injustice. Will you join me?

Chip in now and help us keep working for what is right:
