War­ren takes gloves off and goes af­ter Trump

The Buffalo News - - WASHINGTON NEWS -

WASHINGTON – El­iz­a­beth War­ren had avoided di­rect at­tacks against Pres­i­dent Trump lead­ing up to her pres­i­den­tial run, but the Mas­sachusetts se­na­tor isn’t hold­ing back any­more.

In her first of­fi­cial cam­paign event af­ter an­nounc­ing her pres­i­dency Satur­day, War­ren went af­ter her 2020 op­po­nent – if he’s still around for the gen­eral elec­tions, that is.

“By the time we get to

2020, Don­ald Trump may not even be pres­i­dent,” War­ren told vot­ers at a Cedar Rapids, Iowa, event at the Vet­er­ans Me­mo­rial Build­ing on Sun­day. “In fact, he may not even be a free per­son.”

While the se­na­tor didn’t spec­ify why ex­actly she thinks the pres­i­dent will end up be­hind bars, Trump faces sev­eral in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the Rus­sian in­flu­ence on his cam­paign and his busi­ness deal­ings.

“Ev­ery day, there’s a racist tweet, a hate­ful tweet, some­thing re­ally dark and ugly,” she said.

“And what are we, as can­di­dates, as ac­tivists, the press, go­ing to do about it? Are we go­ing to let him use those to di­vide us?” she said Sun­day, a day af­ter Trump in­voked the Trail of Tears, the 20-year forcible re­lo­ca­tion of Na­tive Amer­i­cans from their homes that re­sulted in the deaths of thou­sands, against her.
