Transcript: Elizabeth Warren’s speech for Progressives to ‘Fight back’, riddled with lies and misinformation

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) vowed steadfast resistance to President Donald Trump’s agenda in a speech at the Congressional Progressive Caucus retreat in Baltimore on Saturday.

Warren argued that it was Democrats’ job to both fight back against the president to address the increasing inequality and the crisis of Trump’s power.

“Our moment of crisis didn’t begin with the election of Donald Trump,” she said. “We were already in crisis. We were already in crisis because for years and years and years, Washington has worked just great for the rich and the powerful, but far too often, it hasn’t worked for anyone else.”

“People don’t just wake up one day and elect leaders like Donald Trump because ‘hey, everything is awesome, but what the hell, let’s roll the dice and make life interesting,’” she added.

Democrats frequently enabled or participated in these trends, Warren said.

“Republican politicians have pushed one policy after another that has favored the rich and powerful over everyone else, and far too often, Democrats have gone right along,” she said. “And no matter how extreme Republicans in Washington became, Democrats might grumble or whine, but when it came time for action, our party hesitated and pushed back only with great reluctance. Far too often, Democrats have been unwilling to get out there and fight.”

The progressive wing of the Democratic Party is uniquely positioned to end this weak posture, she argued.
