Elizabeth Warren Stops By Tonight Show To Dish On Plans For President

Sen. Elizabeth Warren indicated Tuesday that she has no intention of abandoning her scorching criticism of President Trump, who she fiercely opposed during the 2016 campaign.

The Huffington Post reported that the Massachusetts Democrat appeared on the “Tonight Show” to talk about her newly published book, “This Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America’s Working Class.” She also described her efforts to resist Trump’s legislative agenda. “We need to keep a focus on what he actually does, what he is doing to working families across this country,” Warren said. “He’s been there for 100 days. I swear, it feels like dog years. You know? Like he’s been there forever!”

According to The Hill, the lawmaker did not respond when host Jimmy Fallon asked if she could have captured the Democratic presidential nomination last year, or whether Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders would have beaten Trump in the general election. Warren recently told USA Today that “we are where we are,” adding: “We’ve got to get focused on what we’re going to do in the next week, in the next month. This man is truly dangerous.”

Warren declined to discuss whether she has any regrets about deciding to support Hillary Clinton rather than seeking the nomination for herself. “Full stop, right there,” the senator said. “We’ve just got to go forward. … On the one hand, you’ve got to be in the fight, but ... you can’t shoot at everything that moves. We cannot engage Donald Trump on every crazy 3 a.m. tweet.” Warren advised her fellow Democrats to “kind of pick your shots — even though he’s everywhere, all the time — and really fight back on the things that matter.”

A senator since 2013, Warren has become a leader of her party’s progressive wing. Many political pundits believe she could be the Democrats’ best hope to defeat Trump if he seeks a second four-year term in 2020. Warren has not revealed whether she is considering a White House bid. Before that happens, she needs to win re-election to the Senate next year.
