Watch: Elizabeth Warren Isn't Holding Back About the Threat Donald Trump Poses to the Public
Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) did not mince words on Tuesday when responding to Donald Trump's victory in the Indiana primary. While the Massachusetts senator has often lashed out at Republicans on the social network, Warren believed that Trump's new status as the "presumptive nominee" called for a new roast.
.@realDonaldTrump is now the leader of the @GOP. It's real - he is one step away from the White House.— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren) 1462329992
Here’s what else is real: @realDonaldTrump has built his campaign on racism, sexism, and xenophobia.— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren) 1462330018
There's more enthusiasm for @realDonaldTrump among leaders of the KKK than leaders of the political party he now controls.— Elizabeth Warren (@Elizabeth Warren) 1462330051
Donald Trump took a few days to respond:
I hope corrupt Hillary Clinton chooses goofy Elizabeth Warren as her running mate. I will defeat them both.— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1462576558
Let’s properly check goofy Elizabeth Warren’s records to see if she is Native American. I say she’s a fraud!— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1462576577
Goofy Elizabeth Warren and her phony Native American heritage are on a Twitter rant. She is too easy! I'm driving her nuts.— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1462589084
“[Warren] has had a big, failed record as a senator, and all of a sudden about a week ago she started tweeting violently about me,” Trump told Fox’s Bill O’Reilly on Fox News a week after being declared the "presumptive nominee."
Trump insists that the popular senator is “not highly respected" despite other Democrats vying for her endorsement and being called "the biggest power player in progressive politics."
But it's not just his offensive language that troubles the Massachusetts senator. Warren believes that under a Trump presidency, “It will be more of a government that works for a thin slice at the top."
“Increasingly, we live in a world where the economy works for a narrower and narrower slice of America," she told Mic.com in a video Wednesday, adding, "This is our chance, right here in 2016, to change that.”
