Senator Elizabeth Warren Calls Out Donald Trump’s Record of Preying on Working People to Enrich Himself (Video)

Philadelphia, PA–(ENEWSPF)–July 25, 2016.  On the opening night of the Democratic National Convention, Senator Elizabeth Warren called out Donald Trump for his long history of preying on working people to enrich himself. Donald Trump has made a fortune filing bankruptcies, stiffing contractors and creditors, and generally putting himself first, while failing to outline any concrete proposals to create jobs or address college affordability. Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, has real plans to get the economy working for everyone, not just those at the top.
