Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Saturday went after President Donald Trump’s plan to build a southern border wall.
In a fiery speech at the 17th annual Netroots Nation conference, the biggest annual gathering of liberals, the Democratic senator from Massachusetts attacked the Trump administration and the Republicans.
Warren, who many believe has plans to challenge President Trump for the presidency in 2020, also had a very few choice words for the president’s plans to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“And by the way, Mr. President, we’re never ever going to build your stupid wall,” she told the cheering crowd.
Over the past week, lawmakers in Washington have proposed several bills which would allocate funding for the wall, according to Fox News.
The Senate will have the final decision on whether the wall, one of Trump’s major promises during the campaign, will get any funding. Republicans have a slim majority in the upper chamber with 52 seats.
The Daily Caller reports:
At one point, Warren went after her former Senate colleague, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, calling him “a man too racist to become a judge in the 1980s.”
