Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren could turn out to be the Democratic Dream Team!
Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and progressive firebrand Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) campaigned together for the first time in Ohio.
As NBC News reports, “Locked hand-in-hand in front of a rapturous Ohio crowd, Hillary Clinton and Elizabeth Warren sealed a powerful alliance Monday that could help unify the Democratic Party and give Donald Trump nightmares.”
Calling the campaign stop in Cincinnati “a potential preview of a Warren-Clinton campaign team,” Reuters noted that Warren is “a leader of the party’s progressive wing and a potential vice presidential pick for Clinton, is a fiery critic of Wall Street who has also aggressively attacked the wealthy Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee.”
“We’re here to fight side-by-side with Hillary Clinton,” Warren told the crowd, adding that Trump is “a small, insecure money grubber who fights for no one but himself.”
“When Donald says he’ll make America great, he means greater for rich guys just like Donald Trump,” Warren told cheering Clinton supporters.
“He’ll crush you into the dirt to get whatever he wants. That’s who he is.”
Reuters reports that Clinton has “tried to portray businessman Trump as fundamentally unfit for the presidency” since becoming the presumptive Democratic nominee, and “Clinton said Warren’s long history of fighting for progressive economic values made her a perfect messenger for that critique of Trump.”
“She exposes him for what he is – temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be president of the United States,” Clinton said.
As NBC News reports,
Trump sensed the onslaught coming, dismissing the two women in a tweet Monday morning. “Crooked Hillary is wheeling out one of the least productive senators in the U.S. Senate, goofy Elizabeth Warren, who lied on heritage,” he wrote.
However, as NBC continued:
Warren relished the verbal combat, turning the appellation around on Trump — “You want to see goofy? Look at that hat,” adding, “I could do this all day.”
