Elizabeth Warren Goes Ballistic on Trump in Blistering Social Media Onslaught

Following Donald Trump’s primary win in Indiana last night, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren blasted the Republican frontrunner on social media for building “his campaign on racism, sexism and xenophobia,” vowing to ensure “Trump’s toxic stew of hatred and insecurity never reaches the White House.”

Here's the message she posted on Facebook:

Democrat Warren has largely stayed on the sidelines of the nominating process for her own party this election cycle, but the progressive politician consistently slams Republican candidates for their positions on big banks, labor laws and women’s rights.

Shortly after Trump’s rival Ted Cruz (whom Warren has also attacked on social media) announced his decision to suspend his campaign, Warren took to Twitter to eviscerate the only remaining candidate with a chance to clinch the Republican nomination.

Warren went on to attack Trump for inciting violence, attacking POWs, supporting illegal torture tactics and putting out “contradictory and nonsensical national security ideas” before promising to fight the Republican frontrunner all the way to Pennsylvania Ave.

This isn’t the first time Warren has unleashed a social media tirade on Trump. In March, she sent a tweet storm bashing “loser” Trump for his “petty bullying, attacks on women, cheap racism and flagrant narcissism.”
