If there’s one person we knew would take issue with Donald Trump officially becoming the Republican presidential nominee, it’s Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.
As one of the Senate’s most outspoken and progressive members, Sen. Warren (D-Mass.) hasn’t been shy when it comes to telling the country how she really feels about the possibility of a Donald Trump presidency.
On Thursday evening, Warren sat down for an interview with Late Show host Stephen Colbert, during which she sympathized with the anger many Americans are feeling, and admitted they have every right to feel the way they do. But, she went on to note that Donald Trump isn’t the solution to their problems and would likely just make them worse.
Noting his selfish, narcissistic nature, Warren told Colbert that Trump’s plans to give Americans a massive tax break are plans that directly align with his own best interests, and do little to benefit the rest of the country.
‘What he’s really talking about is what he’s talked about his whole life, and that is how to improve the world for Donald Trump.’
She continued, saying:
‘What he just failed to mention is that Donald Trump would get about a $1.3 million tax cut out of that deal. He just takes care of Donald Trump: First, last and everything in between.’
Warren went on to sympathize with Americans, noting how the system in this country is fundamentally rigged:
‘So look, you raised the question about the game being rigged – the game is rigged – I mean, it fundamentally is,’ she said. ‘Washington works for those who can hire armies of lobbyists, armies of lawyers, it works for billionaires like Donald Trump. For the rest of America, it’s not working so well.’
Warren went on to cite the Democrat’s solution to the problem, saying:
‘We’ve got to use our voices, we’ve got to use our votes, we’ve got to take that government and make it work for all of us.’
She went on to tell Colbert just what she thought of Trump’s speech, leaving absolutely nothing left unsaid:
‘He sounded like a two-bit dictator of some country that you couldn’t find on a map. He sounded like the dictator of a small country rather than a man who is running for the highest office of the strongest democracy on the face of this Earth.’
