Donald Trump uses racism to attack people and cares about no one but himself, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will say Thursday in a harsh attack on the presumptive GOP nominee.
“Donald Trump chose racism as his weapon,” Warren will say in a speech in Washington, according to excerpts released by her office. “But his aim is exactly the same as the rest of the Republicans — pound the courts into submission to the rich and powerful.”
Warren has unleashed several rants against Trump on social media and will defend the federal judge who’s the target of his latest attacks . She will talk about Judge Gonzalo Curiel’s history of receiving death threats from drug cartels and an assassination attempt against him. This man can handle Trump’s “nasty temper tantrums,” Warren will say.
She also will blame Republican leaders in Congress for allowing Trump to repeat his attacks on the judge. House Speaker Paul Ryan (D-Wis.) condemned the remarks but has endorsed Trump.
“Donald Trump is a loud, nasty, thin-skinned fraud who has never risked anything for anyone and serves nobody but himself,” Warren was to say.
