Warren: President Trump Wants You to ‘Blame People Who Aren’t the Same Color'
The presidential candidate was addressing an audience of several hundred supporters
2020 hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) continued with her anti-Trump rhetoric on Wednesday claiming President Donald Trump is intentionally dividing Americans to conceal 'corruption' in Washington.
The presidential candidate was addressing an audience of several hundred supporters in a large back yard not far from Lake Winnipesaukee.
The town hall meeting was the second of that day following an event in the town of Franconia, in the White Mountains.
Warren was asked what she would do as president to unify the country.
She gave a long reposne, which is as follows:
Look, Trump has a message. He says if there’s something that’s bad in your life, something that’s not working for you — you’re not making much money; you can’t cover your expenses, you’re worried about your kids — blame them. Blame people who aren’t the same color as you. Blame people who don’t sound like you.
Blame people who weren’t born where you were born. Blame people who don’t worship like you. Blame them. And that is his message. That is it, at heart.
And he thinks if he can stir up people against people, keep people fighting each other enough, then nobody will notice who’s actually picking their pockets.
And that the folks at the top are just getting richer and richer and richer, just scraping more and more of the wealth for themselves.
Warren said argued that the country's unity would come from success:
“Here’s how I believe you heal the divide: you actually deliver on your promises.”
But it wasn't clear which of the President's statements Warren was referencing.
While researching my upcoming book “The United States of Trump,” we could not find one example of the President discussing skin color in a pejorative way or promoting Caucasian dominance.— Bill O'Reilly (@BillOReilly) August 13, 2019
Former Fox News anchor Bill O’Reilly, who was researching the President for this forthcoming book, said earlier this week he had never found no example of Trump referring to skin color in a derogatory manner.
But Warren is no stranger with making claims that cannot be backed up with tangible evidence.
Warren was asked about her stance regarding decriminalizing illegal border crossings during the presidential primary debate, which led her to recall her visit to the United States-Mexico border.
Senator Warren claimed that during this visit, she witnessed “cages of babies” held in detention at the southern border with her own eyes.
“What we can’t do is not live our values,” Warren said while advocating for decriminalizing illegal immigration into the U.S.
"I’ve been down to the border, I have seen the mothers, I have seen the cages of babies."
"We must be a country that every day lives our values."
"And that means we cannot make it a crime when somebody comes here.”
And, of course, there is also her Native American DNA, which is another story.
