Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton have seemed to be awfully friendly in recent days and with this speech, Warren certainly seems to have the White House on her mind.
Elizabeth Warren gave Donald Trump a taste of what he can expect on the campaign trail if Hillary Clinton picks her to be her vice president – a daily tongue lashing that rivals his own scorched-earth tactics against his opponents.
Introducing Clinton, Warren ripped into the Republican billionaire today at a rally in Cincinnati, Ohio – her first time on stage with the Democrat.
‘When Donald Trump says he’ll make America great, he means make it even greater for rich guys just like Donald Trump,’ Warren charged. ‘That’s who Donald Trump is – the guy who wants it all for himself.’
Trump is a ‘small, insecure money grubber,’ she said, reviving a recent attack on real estate mogul. And he looks ‘goofy’ in his Make America Great hat, Warren said, mocking him with the same word he used to mock her.
‘Watch out, he will crush you into the dirt to get whatever he wants,’ the progressive senator warned.
In recent weeks, the two women have formed a tight electoral alliance — one that could grow even closer should Clinton pick Warren as her running mate.
On Monday, Warren joined Clinton for their first joint event at a rally in Cincinnati.
For Clinton, the visit offers an important opportunity to win back some of the liberal and younger voters she lost to Sanders in the primary.
Though Sanders said on Friday that he’d vote for Clinton, he’s shied away from offering a full-throated endorsement or urging his supporters to back her.
‘It sends a clear signal to progressive voters that it’s time for them to put the past in the past and elect Clinton,’ said Geoff Garin, a pollster at Priorities USA, a super PAC backing Clinton’s bid.
