Clinton Cheers Warren: She ‘Exposes’ Trump For ‘What He Is’ (VIDEO)

Hillary Clinton rained praise down on her “friend” and “great leader” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) during a joint campaign appearance on Monday, applauding Warren’s work on behalf of middle-class Americans and her unique ability to critique Donald Trump.

“I do just love to see how she gets under Donald Trump’s thin skin,” a beaming Clinton told an audience in Cincinnati, Ohio after an effusive introduction from Warren. “As Elizabeth made clear, Donald Trump proves every day, he’s not in it for the American people. He’s in it only for himself.”

“And Elizabeth reminds us of that every chance she gets,” she continued, “because it is really important that voters here in Ohio and across America understands this. She exposes him for what he is. Temperamentally unfit and totally unqualified to be president of the United States.”

Both wearing blue blazers, Warren and Clinton took the stage hand in hand and traded admiring words during their first appearance together on the 2016 trail. The event was widely interpreted as a trial run for the progressive senator, who is short-listed to become Clinton’s vice president.

The former secretary of state highlighted their shared economic policy agenda, ticking off their mutual commitments to overturning Citizens United and raising the minimum wage. Clinton thanked Warren for her work on relieving student debt and enforcing stricter regulation on Wall Street banks, calling her “terrific” and “formidable.”

“I want to thank her for fighting every single day, for families like hers, families like yours, and millions of hard-working Americans who deserve to have more folks on their side!” she said.

Calling for the election of “more strong, progressive leaders” like Warren in November, Clinton said she could lead the country “in the right direction with confidence and optimism.”
