Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, who is considered a hero by progressives, is going to endorse Hilary Clinton. Although Warren is not interested in being Clinton’s running mate, she is not ruling out that possibility. Warren’s endorsement has been considered as crucial in pulling Democrats together to defeat Republican nominee Donald Trump.
Senator Elizabeth Warren, 66, will formally endorse Clinton within the next few weeks. According to Reuters, two people who have knowledge of Warren’s decision had decided to endorse Clinton, as she has already secured enough delegates’ support to become the party’s nominee for the White house.
Apparently, Elizabeth Warren’s advisers are in constant contact with Clinton’s campaign team and in recent weeks the communication between the two teams have enhanced many folds.Warren has been one of the fiercest critics of Trump among Democrats and her main concern is to help defeat Trump in the November presidential elections. Warren’s tweet echoed the call for the party to come together. She tweeted, “get ready Donald. We’re coming.”
Last month, Warren called Trump a small, insecure money grubber” who does not care about hurting people, as long as he makes some money by giving speeches in Washington, as stated by Fox News.
Warren added, “Donald Trump was drooling over the idea of a housing meltdown because it meant he could buy up a bunch more property on the cheap. What kind of a man does that? Root for people to get thrown out on the street?”
Trump, in turn, attacked Warren in his mail to AP, saying, “Pocahontas is at it again. She scammed the people of Massachusetts and got into institutions because she said she is Native American. She’s one of the least successful Senators in the U.S. Senate.”
Warren was criticized during her 2012 election campaign because she was listed in a law school directories as having Native American ancestry. Warren has dismissed these criticisms by describing them as “Brown’s hate-filled attacks” on her family.
Along with her mission to oust Donald Trump, Warren is also committed to proceeding with her political agenda which is more progressive than Clinton’s centrist position.
