Elizabeth Warren Blasts Donald Trump For Not 'Draining The Swamp'

"It's like the most impressive 180-degree switch that you've ever seen."

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called out President Donald Trump in an interview posted online Thursday for failing to deliver on his campaign pledge to “drain the swamp.”

Trump had performed what could be “the most impressive 180-degree switch that you’ve ever seen” following his election win in November, Warren told Attn Editor-in-Chief Matthew Segal.

Citing Trump’s promise to voters that he would “drain the swamp” and “get rid of those Wall Street guys,” Warren took issue with the new president for almost immediately bringing in Goldman Sachs bankers, lobbyists and CEOs of giant companies to help him govern.

In doing so, Warren said, Trump turned over the country “to the very people that he had railed against during the campaign.”
