U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren has taken a jab at President Donald Trump while urging University of Massachusetts-Amherst graduates to pursue issues they care about.

During Friday's commencement address, Warren ticked off a list of possible causes, including student debt, access to voting and "the principle that no one, no one in this country is above the law and we need a Justice Department, not an obstruction of justice department."

That last suggestion received big cheers. It was a reference to Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, whose agency is investigating allegations of collaboration between Russia and the Trump presidential campaign last year.

Warren, first elected in 2012, told the students America needs them and how "each generation must rebuild democracy to serve its own time and its own needs."
