WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) took to social media on Monday afternoon, launching a veritable Twitter tirade against Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump.
In 140 character attacks, Warren lambasted the New York real estate mogul and reality TV star. Firing off a list of Trump failures, Warren made haste in eviscerating “the Donald.”
“Lets be honest – Donald Trump is a loser.” – U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren
The Democratic Progressive who has made a mission of abating Wall Street’s hold on the Middle Class, began with Trump’s known business failures and corporate bankruptcy strategies. Warren named in particular the failed Trump University, aka the Trump Wealth Institute, currently the subject of a consumer class action lawsuit.
Moving quickly to Trump’s campaign discourse, Warren painted a picture of an insecure, schoolyard bully.
“Trump seems to know he’s a loser,” Warren said. “His embarrassing insecurities are on parade; petty bullying, attacks on women, cheap racism, and flagrant narcissism.”
Calling on Democrats to band together to ensure that Trump not be elected, the Commonwealth’s “blue collar” senator warned of an America torn apart, communities broken and a march backward to days where racism and sexism were accepted standards.
“Many of history’s worst authoritarians started out as losers – and Trump is a serious threat,” Warren said. “The way I see it, it’s our job to make sure he ends this campaign every bit the loser that he started it.”
Warren, who has not endorsed either democratic candidate in the presidential race has been floated as a possible pick for Vice President.
Warren’s remarks on Facebook
Let’s be honest – Donald Trump is a loser. Count all his failed businesses. See how he kept his father’s empire afloat by cheating people with scams like Trump University and by using strategic corporate bankruptcy (excuse me, bankruptcies) to skip out on debt. Listen to the experts who’ve concluded he’s so bad at business that he might have more money today if he’d put his entire inheritance into an index fund and left it alone.
Trump seems to know he’s a loser. His embarrassing insecurities are on parade: petty bullying, attacks on women, cheap racism, and flagrant narcissism. But just because Trump is a loser everywhere else doesn’t mean he’ll lose this election. People have been underestimating his campaign for nearly a year – and it’s time to wake up.
People talk about how “this is the most important election’ in our lifetime every four years and it gets stale. But consider what hangs in the balance. Affordable college. Accountability for Wall Street. Healthcare for millions of Americans. The Supreme Court. Big corporations and billionaires paying their fair share of taxes. Expanded Social Security. Investments in infrastructure and medical research and jobs right here in America.
The chance to turn our back on the ugliness of hatred, sexism, racism and xenophobia. The chance to be a better people.
More than anyone we’ve seen before come within reach of the presidency, Donald trump stands ready to tear apart an America that was built on values like decency, community and concern for our neighbors. Many of history’s worst authoritarians started out as losers – and Trump is a serious threat. The way I see it, it’s our job to make sure he ends this campaign every bit the loser that he started it.
Warren joins AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka in spreading the Democrats message against racism and xenophobia. Trumka has been canvassing the country, speaking on behalf of the nation’s largest labor union in an organized anti-Trump campaign.
