As Democrats regroup and prepare to fight, some strong voices are emerging as true leaders. One of them is Elizabeth Warren. And now that the election is over, she has a lot to say about Trump and the future of this country. If you are still reeling from this whole thing you really need to listen to this.
Now that the election is over, it’s time for Democrats to regroup and prepare to fight. We need strong progressive voices to lead the way. And one of the people who will help to shape the Democratic Party moving forward is Senator Elizabeth Warren.
Throughout the election, Elizabeth Warren was great. She took on the role of “attack dog” and went after Trump like a prize fighter. She stood up to Trump’s disgusting bullying and bigotry. And we’re going to need her to continue to do so….now more than ever.
On Thursday Warren gave a powerful speech to the AFL-CIO labor federation. She said that during this presidential election Trump “encouraged a toxic stew of hatred and fear.” And she promised that under a Trump presidency Democrats would “stand up to bigotry.”
“We will stand up to bigotry. No compromises ever on this one. Bigotry in all its forms. We will fight back against attacks on Latinos, on African Americans, on women, on Muslims, on immigrants, on disabled Americans, on anyone.”
“Whether Donald Trump sits in a glass tower or sits in the White House, we will not give an inch on this, not now, not ever.”
Warren also gave an exclusive and inspiring interview to Rachel Maddow Thursday. She told Rachel,
“This is painful, this really and truly hurts, and we have to remember how Donald Trump started this campaign … his entire campaign was fueled on racism and bigotry.”
“He won — and now Latino and Muslim-American children are worried about what will happen to their families. LGBT couples are worried that their marriages could be dissolved by a Trump-Pence Supreme Court. Women are worried that their access to desperately needed health services will disappear.”
Warren also talked about what Trump said in his victory speech. He vowed that he would be a President for ALL of us. And Warren plans on holding him to that.
“When he takes the oath of office as the leader of our democracy and the leader of all Americans, I sincerely hope that he will fulfill that pledge with respect and concern for every single human being in this country. No matter who they are, no matter where they come from, no matter what they believe, no matter whom they love.”
