Elizabeth Warren unleashes viral takedown of Trump’s ‘toxic stew of hatred & insecurity’

Following Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump‘s dominance of the Indiana primary on Tuesday forcing Cruz to drop out of the race, Elizabeth Warren wrote a letter of warning to the American people, saying the billionaire former reality TV star has “built his campaign on racism, sexism, and xenophobia.”

The Massachusetts Senator railed against the now GOP presumptive nominee’s positions on attacking veterans, praising Russian president Vladimir Putin and “cheerleading illegal torture.”

In a series of tweets, Warren also called Trump’s divisive and narcissistic rhetoric an ideology of “toxic stew of hatred & insecurity.”

Read Warren’s entire Facebook post below:

Donald Trump is now the leader of the Republican Party. It’s real – he is one step away from the White House.

Here’s what else is real:

Trump has built his campaign on racism, sexism, and xenophobia. There’s more enthusiasm for him among leaders of the KKK than leaders of the political party he now controls.

He incites supporters to violence, praises Putin, and, according to a columnist who recently interviewed him, is “cool with being called an authoritarian” and doesn’t mind associations with history’s worst dictators.

He attacks veterans like John McCain who were captured and puts our service members at risk by cheerleading illegal torture. In a world with ISIS militants and leaders like North Korean strongman Kim Jong-Un conducting nuclear tests, he surrounds himself with a foreign policy team that has been called a “collection of charlatans,” and puts out contradictory and nonsensical national security ideas one expert recently called “incoherent” and “truly bizarre.”

What happens next will test the character for all of us – Republican, Democrat, and Independent. It will determine whether we move forward as one nation or splinter at the hands of one man’s narcissism and divisiveness. I know which side I’m on, and I’m going to fight my heart out to make sure Donald Trump’s toxic stew of hatred and insecurity never reaches the White House.
