The Massachusetts senator said that Democrats also failed to push a big enough stimulus package, which also hurt them in the 2016 election. Warren said at the meeting that Democrats did not do enough for homeowners, according to the Huffington Post. She said that Democrats failed in their ideology, not their messaging, attendees at the meeting told the Huffington Post.
She said that Donald Trump's message to voters, that he would fight for them, resonated in 2016, according to the Boston Globe.
Warren's comments about Democrats' shortcomings come as the party tries to regroup following Hillary Clinton's stunning loss and significant losses down the ballot in the 2016 election. Some are pushing for a shake-up at the Democratic National Committee, backing Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) as the next chair.
