Read Former President Bill Clinton's Tweets

On this 4th of July, I'm hopeful that we continue to work on and build upon the ideals of equality and freedom, expanding the definition of "Us" and shrinking the definition of "Them." How we respond to this moment in time may define what our country is like for a very long time.

Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them. And some are John Lewis. Watch Good Trouble and see what I mean.

I am proud to join the #TipYourCap2020 campaign in honor of the centennial of the Negro Leagues and the talented men and women who played in them from 1920 through 1960. The Negro Leagues made baseball better and America better.

I loved Steve Bing very much. He had a big heart, and he was willing to do anything he could for the people and causes he believed in. I will miss him and his enthusiasm more than I can say, and I hope he’s finally found peace.

America’s greatest strength is our diversity. This week’s Supreme Court rulings protecting LGBTQ+ rights in the workplace and blocking the termination of DACA have made America better, fairer, and stronger.

Juneteenth is both a remembrance and, particularly this year, a reminder that the journey toward true equality and justice is far from over. The millions of people across the country demanding change have brought new hope to a very old fight. We must keep pushing.

No one deserves to die the way George Floyd did. And the truth is, if you’re white in America, the chances are you won’t. That truth is what underlies the pain and the anger that so many are feeling and expressing.

Today, and every day, we remember the brave men and women who sacrificed so much for their fellow Americans. Your country is forever grateful. 🇺🇸

I'll always remember Eddie Sutton as a good man, who cared about his players, got the best out of them and prepared them well for life after basketball. And I will always love him for being a ferocious, loyal friend. My full statement on his passing here:

For Immediate Release: May 24, 2020

Losing Open Skies is a major blow to international arms control efforts. One more critical line of communication with Russia closed. One less opportunity to prevent disaster before it happens. They will come for New START next, opening the floodgates to a new nuclear arms race.

Bill and I were saddened to hear of the passing of Wilson Roosevelt Jerman at the age of 91 from COVID-19. Jerman served as a White House butler across 11 presidencies and made generations of first families feel at home, including ours. Our warmest condolences to his loved ones.

Annie Glenn’s courage inspired so many throughout her life, as did her kind, compassionate voice for the elderly and people with disabilities. My full statement on her passing here:

Little Richard was a great talent and a big part of my childhood so it was an honor when he played at my inauguration in 1993. His music influenced countless musicians and we still feel it today. I will miss him and his unforgettable charisma.

Today, @ClintonCenter served its 250,000th meal to children, families, and people in need. This could not have happened without dedicated staff, volunteers, and partners like @WCKitchen, @CityLittleRock, and local school districts. I am deeply grateful to all of them.
