JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Following Donald Trump’s economic speech on Monday, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), one of Trump’s most vocal critics in the Senate, tore into the Republican nominee’s proposals on Twitter.

She charged that Trump’s plan was written by wealthy advisers and will benefit rich Americans the most.

In particular, Warren went after Trump’s call for a moratorium on financial regulations.

She also bashed his proposal for tax cuts.

Warren has been going after Trump on Twitter and in speeches for months, once calling him a “thin-skinned, racist bully.” Trump has fired back, labeling Warren “goofy” and mocking her past comments on her Native American heritage by calling her “Pocahantas.”
