Populist Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) posted a scathing criticism of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Facebook March 21. Warren called Trump a “loser” because of his many business bankruptcies which were intended to evade debt, and included the infamous Trump University failure and subsequent law suits.
“Listen to the experts who’ve concluded that he’s so bad at business that he might have more money today if he’d put his entire inheritance into an index fund and just left it alone,” wrote Sen. Warren.
She said that Trump’s father’s business empire was kept alive by “scams” created by the son. She maintains that he knows he is a loser because of his visible behavior – bullying, demeaning women, racism, and glaring narcissism.
She is very concerned about the coming election. “People have been underestimating his campaign for nearly a year – and it’s time to wake up.”
What is at stake in this election, wrote Warren, will make this a very important year for the country. Its direction may take one of two different paths, depending on who gets elected. She listed the crucial issues. “Accountability for Wall Street. Healthcare for millions of Americans. The Supreme Court. Big corporations and billionaires paying their fair share of taxes. Expanded social security. Investments in infrastructure and medical research and jobs right here in America.”
The “loser” may become a winner in November, she wrote. “Donald Trump stands ready to tear apart an America that was built on values like decency, community, and concern for our neighbors. Many of history’s worst authoritarians started out as losers – and Trump is a serious threat.”
Some see a reference in the last sentence to the World War 2 Fuhrer.
