Elizabeth Warren: Trump Represents 'Domestic Terror' And 'White Nationalism'
Warren spoke at American University Washington College of Law
As if Sen. Elizabeth Warren's fake claims of Native American ancestry wasn't enough for her to climb back under a rock, it seems her ongoing criticism of President Donald Trump hasn't changed.
Warren spoke at American University Washington College of Law, but predictably used it as an excuse to slam Trump on his policies claiming he promotes 'white nationalism' and supports “domestic right-wing terrorism.”
Warren stated Trump’s election poses a menace to democracy.
“He cozies up to white nationalists,” Warren said on Thursday.
“He undermines the free press and incites violence against journalists.”
“The 2016 election provided a stark reminder that we must remain vigilant and fight for our democracy every single day,” Warren said.
“That starts with protecting our elections and democratic processes, and making it clear that there will be severe consequences for those – foreign or domestic – who meddle, hack, or undermine them.”
“It means ensuring a meaningful opportunity for every American citizen to vote,” Warren said.
“And it means fighting for equal justice and protection under the law for all.”
“It also requires us to speak out against hateful rhetoric that fuels domestic terrorism of all kinds, whether in San Bernadino or Charleston, Orlando or Charlottesville, Fort Hood or Pittsburgh,” Warren said.
“We must speak plainly about all of these incidents.”
“Just like the hateful terrorism of Al Qaeda and ISIS, domestic right-wing terrorism is completely incompatible with our American values,” Warren said.
Warren went far has claiming Trump “embraces dictators of all stripes,” as she attempted to paint a grave picture of the state of global affairs under this president.
“Let’s start with a serious problem: Around the world, democracy is under assault,” Warren said. “Authoritarian governments are gaining power.”
“Right-wing demagogues are gaining strength,” Warren added. “Movements toward openness and pluralism have stalled and begun to reverse.”
“Inequality is rapidly growing, transforming rule by-the-people into rule by-wealthy-elites,” Warren said.
Warren conveniently ignored the President's success, including halting North Korea’s development of nuclear weapons, underminingISIS, and standing up to Iran for funding terrorism.
Instead, she turned r cutting a “bloated defense budget” and the end of “reckless, endless wars in the Middle East.”
Warren’s speech involved leftist concerns, including corporations’ alleged mistreatment of American workers, and unions to the threats of “cutthroat capitalism” and the traps of free trade.
“But as it’s currently written, Trump’s deal won’t stop the serious and ongoing harm NAFTA causes for American workers,” Warren said.
“It won’t stop outsourcing, it won’t raise wages, and it won’t create jobs.”
She also maintains the agreement promotes “big drug companies” and fails to address climate change.
“For these reasons, I oppose NAFTA 2.0 and will vote against it in the Senate unless President Trump reopens the agreement and produces a better deal for America’s working families,” Warren said.
