Warren: Trump Has More Support From White Supremacists Than GOP Leadership
Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren railed against Donald Trump for his rhetoric, which she believes has led to violence and his appeal to white supremacists.
The Hill reports:
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Saturday blasted Donald Trump and the Republican Party while hitting the campaign trail for Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in the battleground state of Ohio.
“Donald Trump has repeatedly invited his supporters to commit a horrific act of violence against his opponent, against another human being. I just want you to think for a minute — what kind of a man does that?” she asked.
“A bully, a twisted bully who can’t fight his own fight, who can’t win a fair fight, who will never be a president of the United States, that’s who.
“Let’s face it: Trump has more support from the Aryan Nation and the KKK than he does from the leaders of his own party,” she said.
Warren then criticized the Republican presidential nominee for launching “one racist attack after another” on President Obama, referring to Trump’s years-long campaign to cast doubt on Obama’s birthplace, a theory Trump backed away from on Friday.
She also slammed Trump over his Trump University controversy, his alleged connections to Russian interests, and his own business scandals to reiterate that he is unfit to be in the White House.
“What kind of a man does that? A man with a dark and ugly soul. A man who will never be a president of the United States,” she said.
Warren attempted to fire up the Democratic voter base in Ohio after the latest polls showed Clinton’s supporters to be less enthusiastic than Trump’s.
“At this point in my election, a poll came out that showed me down 4 points. Now what do you do at that point? Well, you can whimper. You can whine. Or you can fight back. Me, I’m fighting back in this race. How about you?” she said to a cheering crowd.
