Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) delivered a verbal beat down of Donald Trump that exposed everything that Republicans are afraid of at the Massachusetts Democratic Convention.
While speaking at the Massachusetts Democratic Convention, Sen. Warren said:
“Trump University,” a place where his former employees call it just one big fraudulent scheme. Now, rather tan investing in high-quality instructors and counselors, Donald Trump put together an army of sales people. It was like a used car dealership—except that’s not fair to used car dealerships. Trump sales people would focus on how much money someone could come up with, and they would push perspective students to max out their credit cards so they could fork over thousands, sometimes tens of thousands of dollars to Donald. His playbook said to look for people with problems; they make good targets.
Trume even encouraged his sales force to go after elderly people who were trying to build a little financial security. Now, Trump University failed and that’s no surprise. Think Trump Airlines, Trump Steaks, Trump Magazines, Trump Vodka, Trump Casinos, Trump Mortgage, Trump Games, Trump Travel Trump Ice, Trump Network, Trump Radio, and Trump New Media Company.
Donald Trump is a proven businessman. A proven failure.
According to Politico, Sen. Warren summed up the Trump University scandal in a way that should terrify the GOP, “These were ordinary folks who were targeted because they had problems and Trump saw they were vulnerable and he could make a buck. 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.”
Thanks to Trump’s own behavior, Democrats are having no trouble making the allegation that Trump is only in it for himself stick. It is also easy to label Trump a fraudster because he is being sued for fraud in multiple states.
Donald Trump’s entire campaign was built around the candidate’s own self-created myths about his motives and business success. Warren punctured those myths and showed the American people who Donald Trump really is.
Republicans are stuck with Trump at the top of the ticket, and Elizabeth Warren is going to make the GOP pay for their epic mistake every single day from now until November.
Democrats are just getting warmed up, and the Republican era of Trump is already collapsing.
