Elizabeth Warren: ‘We Can’t Wait Four Years to Stop Donald Trump’

Wednesday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” when asked about running against President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said that we could not “wait four years to stop Donald Trump.”

Warren said, “What I’m worried about right now — look, I’m in my Senate race. I’m up for reelection in 2018, I’m going to run. I’m all in on that. But here is the deal, Willie, I’m worried about what Donald Trump is going to do between right now and the time I go to bed tonight. I’m worried about what he’s going to do between the time I go to bed tonight and the time I wake up tomorrow morning. What will he do at 3:00 a.m. on Twitter? We have to be in this fight urgently right now. I totally get why people want to talk about 2020 and what are we going to do, but that’s way down the line. Donald Trump has barely completed 100 days and it’s not just what he says it’s the things he is doing to working people. That he’s making it okay for, you know — easier for corporations that kill and maim their employees to hide that fact, making it easier for federal contractors to steal employees’ wages, making it easier for investment advisors to cheat retirees. We’ve got to stay on what Donald Trump — not what he says, what Donald Trump is doing right now.”

She added, “What we have to do is we can’t wait four years to stop Donald Trump. It’s an important point, Willie. Democracy works if we engage in the fights right now. The reason that the Republicans and Donald Trump have not replaced Obamacare with Trumpcare is because people around this country have gotten engaged. Engagement is critical. And its engagement not in a distant election, it’s engagement in today’s fight. That’s what we’ve got to keep our focus on and, boy, you better believe I am in that fight all the way.”
