Senator Elizabeth Warren is being formally vetted as a possible vice presidential pick for the presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. If chosen, this would be the first time in history two women would run together as a major party’s presidential and vice presidential nominees.
“I got into this race because I wanted to even the odds for people who have the odds stacked against them,” Hillary Clinton said during a joint campaign event on Monday in Cincinnati. “To build an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top, we have got to go big and we have got to go bold.”
Today was the first time the two Democrats have campaigned together onstage. But one thing is for certain: both are united against the common enemy, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
The prominent Democratic Senator from Massachusetts ignited a feud with Trump in May, calling him out for his “racism, sexism and xenophobia.” Recently she called him a “small, insecure money grubber” who would “crush [people] into the dirt.” Obviously you can see whose side she’s on.
Warren supported Clinton’s advocacy for families and children, saying she had “steady hands, but most of all, she has a good heart.” But she also saw Hillary Clinton as a candidate particularly suited to defeat Mr. Trump.
“She knows what it takes to defeat a thin-skinned bully who is driven by greed and hate,” said Elizabeth Warren, who has often been on the receiving side of Donald Trump’s Twitter attacks. “She doesn’t whine. She doesn’t run to Twitter to call her opponents fat pigs or dummies.”
