Sen. Warren: Trump Failed on His Promise to 'Drain the Swamp'

President Donald Trump has performed poorly in his promise to keep corporate executives out of government, Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Thursday. 

"That's why I give President Trump an F on his promise to drain the swamp," the Massachusetts Democrat told CNN. 

"We have these regulatory agencies in place to watch out for the public interest and when you load them up with a bunch of lobbyists and corporate consultants, then what happens is, once again, government works for the big guys and just not for anyone else," Warren said.

"I'm glad to see a high stock market, but that wealth is not widely shared. It does not mean that middle-class America is doing well," she added. 

"What's happened to middle-class America is, basically, it's been flat wages and rising expenses for the basics, for housing, for health care, for transportation, for education… a rising stock market isn't what helps on those issues."

Warren is considered to be on the list of possible contenders for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020.
