Watch: Elizabeth Warren Trashes Trump Over 'Money-Grubbing' During Housing Crisis

Elizabeth Warren continues to carry her torch for the Democratic Party as both a Massachusetts senator and party super delegate. After engaging in a brutal Twitter war with the Republican “presumptive nominee” Warren is taking on the Republican billionaire every chance she gets.


“Donald Trump was drooling over the idea of a housing meltdown because it meant he could buy up a bunch more property on the cheap,” Warren said Tuesday night at a Washington, D.C., gala for the Center for Popular Democracy.

“What kind of a man does that?” Warren asked rhetorically. “Root for people to get thrown out on the street? Root for people to lose their jobs? Root for people to lose their pensions? Root for two little girls in Clark County, Nevada, to end up living in a van?”

Progressive Warren warned the crowd that Trump’s economic policies would not only make America less great—they would throw the country into a recession.

“I’ll tell you exactly what kind,” Warren continued. “A man who cares about no one but himself. A small, insecure money-grubber who doesn’t care who gets hurt, so long as he makes some money off it. What kind of man does that? A man who will never be president of the United States.”

Warren also pointed out that Trump’s flip-flops are hazardous as well.

“Sometimes Trump claims he is tough on Wall Street. But now he’s singing a very different song. Last week, he said that the new Dodd-Frank financial regulations have, and I’m quoting here, ‘made it impossible for bankers to function’ and he will put out a new plan soon that ‘will be close to dismantling Dodd-Frank,'” Warren said.
