Senator Elizabeth Warren unleashed a new round of attacks on Donald Trump, calling him "a loud, nasty, thin-skinned fraud" who used "racism" to attack the federal judge overseeing a Trump University lawsuit, the Washington Post
Her comments came in excerpts released from a speech she is expected to deliver Thursday, the Post reported. The liberal Massachusetts' Democrat is considered a potential running mate for Hillary Clinton.
In her prepared remarks, the Post said Warren also slammed Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan over Trump's controversial comments directed at the judge hearing the Trump University case and for holding up President Obama's judicial appointments.
"Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell want Donald Trump to appoint the next generation of judges," Warren is quoted by the newspaper.
"They want those judges to tilt the law to favor big business and billionaires like Trump.
They just want Donald to quit being so vulgar and obvious about it," Warren will say. "Donald Trump chose racism as his weapon, but his aim is exactly the same as the rest of the Republicans. Pound the courts into submission to the rich and powerful."
Warren's speech focuses in part on Trump's suggestion that US District Judge Gonzalo Curiel cannot fairly preside over lawsuits against Trump University because of his Mexican heritage.
"Judge Curiel is one of countless American patriots who has spent decades quietly serving his country, sometimes at great risk to his own life," Warren intends to say, according to the Post. "Judge Curiel has survived far worse than Donald Trump. He has survived actual assassination attempts. He'll have no problem surviving Trump's nasty temper tantrums."
