Elizabeth Warren to Call Out Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell in Upcoming Speech
Senator Elizabeth Warren plans to land a few more verbal jabs against Donald Trump during a speech in Washington D.C. on Thursday night.
According to excerpts obtained by the Boston Globe, the Massachusetts lawmaker will call the presumptive Republican presidential nominee a “loud, nasty, thin-skinned fraud” over his remarks about the judge who’s handling the Trump University fraud case.
“Judge [Gonzalo] Curiel is one of countless American patriots who has spent decades quietly serving his country, sometimes at great risk to his own life,’’ Warren will say in the speech. “Donald Trump is a loud, nasty, thin-skinned fraud who has never risked anything for anyone and serves nobody but himself.’’
The address, which will be delivered at the American Constitution Society’s national convention, will also include critiques of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan.
ABC News reports that Warren will argue that Trump isn’t all that different from other Republican candidates and that the GOP leaders helped set the stage for the business mogul’s rise to power.
“Trump isn’t a different kind of candidate,” Warren will say. “He’s a Mitch McConnell kind of candidate. Exactly the kind of candidate you’d expect from a Republican Party whose ‘script’ for several years has been to execute a full-scale assault on the integrity of our courts.”
Prior to Thursday’s speech, Warren and Trump have spent months going back and forth on Twitter, exchanging heated comments about each other.
The Republican nominee has labeled the Massachusetts senator as “goofy Elizabeth Warren” and recently blasted her over allegedly flipping foreclosed houses. Warren has fired back on several occasions, including a lengthy tweet storm where she called him out for his campaign’s “racism, sexism, and xenophobia.”
Since Warren is reportedly going to endorse Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee and may end up being her vice presidential candidate, expect the war with Trump to continue throughout this election cycle.
