Donald Trump is an “insecure moneygrubber,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren told the assembled Democrats of Massachusetts at the state’s party convention Saturday.
He is also, according to Warren’s prepared remarks: Scary, loud, outrageous, offensive, small, a failure and fraudster-in-chief.

Those are just a handful of the bombs Warren hurled Trump’s way in her Saturday afternoon address, attacking the Republican nominee on an array of issues from climate change to Wall Street to women. Warren spent significant time echoing recent attacks from Hillary Clinton against Trump University, the Republican presumptive nominee’s troubled real-estate seminar program.
“It was like a used car dealership—except that’s not fair to used car dealerships,” Warren said of Trump University. “His playbook said to look for people with problems; they make good targets.”
“These were ordinary folks who were targeted because they had problems and Trump saw they were vulnerable and he could make a buck,” she continued. “Here’s a man who builds a business to profit off other peoples’ pain. He wants to be Commander in Chief, but he’s only qualified to be Fraudster-in-Chief.”
Warren, who has not officially endorsed a candidate in the Democratic primary, said that she was “proud of the debate that Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton have had. Proud that we are a party that doesn’t debate over who has the tiniest hands or who can build the longest, tallest, stupidest wall between us and Mexico.”
From there, Warren launched into a laundry list of Trump’s policies, highlighting where the GOP nominee’s views differed from that of her own and her party’s. She called Trump a “union buster” and ridiculed him as a “climate change denier.” She said he is “all about money.”
“These are the values we fight for,” Warren said. “These are the values that will beat Donald Trump.”
