Elizabeth Warren is preaching Democratic unity in taking on President Donald Trump, a challenge she framed as an existential crisis for America.
Warren, having partly recovered her voice after catching a cold, said at a Monday afternoon town hall in the Las Vegas suburb of Henderson that America is at its best when it takes on a problem.
She said the 2020 election “is the moment in history that we have been called to,” likening it to the challenges America overcame from its founding revolution, the Civil War, the Great Depression and World War II.
The Massachusetts senator also spoke about how she’s adopted policy plans and hired staff from Democrats who have dropped out of the race, including New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, former Obama administration housing chief Julián Castro, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee and California Sen. Kamala Harris.
Warren said culling those ideas builds a Democratic Party and coalition “that works for all of us.”
