Elizabeth Warren just fired back at Trump’s “TRAIL” insult with an epic dig
A day after her official presidential campaign launch event in her home state of Massachusetts. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) traveled to Iowa to begin wooing voters in the state where bids for the presidency traditionally face their first test in less than a year from today.
Warren surely was responding to President Trump’s offensive attack on her yesterday — a tweet that contained a joking reference to the Native American genocide known as the Trail of Tears — when she opened her speech to supporters in Cedar Rapids, Iowa with a dig at Trump’s legal jeopardy in the multiple investigations of which he is currently the ultimate subject.
Vaughn Hillyard of NBC News reported on Warren’s speech via a series of Twitter posts that demonstrated that the Massachusetts senator won’t be cowed by Trump’s insults and that hinted that she believes that the president may not even be a factor by the time the 2020 elections roll around.
Elizabeth Warren in first minutes of Iowa speech—> “Here’s what bothers me, by the time we get to 2020, Donald Trump may not even be president. In fact, he may not even be a free person. But here’s how I see it – Donald Trump is not the only problem we’ve got.”
After quickly dismissing Trump as so compromised as to be not even worth paying attention to, Warren reiterated the progressive agenda that she began rolling out yesterday and has championed since she first urged the establishment of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau under then-President Obama.
Warren in Cedar Rapids: “We can make change…make big structural change, the kind that puts the power back in the hands of people.” Warren rolls right into list of changes, ending lobbying “as we know it,” strengthen unions…
Elizabeth Warren in Cedar Rapids –> “This is the first full day of my campaign! Woo hoo! ….came straight to Iowa…you don’t come to Iowa & describe a problem and say, ‘We sure better fix that.’”
Senator Warren’s willingness to confront the entrenched monied power brokers was apparent as she again declared her refusal to accept donations from billionaires, their corporations, or their political action committees.
