US Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren has denounced Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump
’s economic vision he outlined in a speech to the Detroit Economic Club.
In a series of tweets on Monday, Warren, a Democratic senator from Massachusetts and former Harvard Law School professor, said the billionaire businessman’s economic plan “was written by rich corporate insider advisers to make the economy
even greater for rich corporate insiders.”
Earlier in the day, Trump described his policy to revitalize America’s economy, an attempt to refocus his campaign after a series of missteps that cost him dearly in the race against Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
Warren blasted Trump and his economic vision for the United States
, accusing him of tipping the scales for the wealthy Americans.
“Cheating customers & gaming the system might be your business,” tweeted Warren, “but it’s not the way America is going to do business.”
The Massachusetts senator has recently intensified her attacks against Trump, calling him “a lousy businessman” and selfish human being.
She has also joined a group of Democrats demanding Trump publicly release his tax returns, implying that the New York real estate mogul is lying about his true business value.
“Maybe he’s just a lousy businessman who doesn’t want you to find out he’s worth a whole lot less than he claims. We really can’t know for sure,” Warren said in a recent video appeared on MoveOn.org.
After endorsing Clinton in June, Warren denounced Trump’s ethics, calling him “a small, insecure money-grubber.”

Warren’s criticism of Trump has reportedly done more damage to the reputation of the billionaire businessman than of any of his Republican primary opponents could do, and provoked angry response from the billionaire.
Trump, whose campaign has been marred by controversy from the beginning, has fallen behind his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in national polls.
In addition, Trump’s many missteps and his feuds with senior Republican officials, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, have caused a rift in the GOP over the need to get behind him as the party’s candidate.
A new poll shows that Clinton has taken a 9-percentage point lead over Trump in the run-up to the 2016 US presidential race.
The poll, released on Sunday evening, shows the former secretary of state has 46 percent of the votes as compared to the New York billionaire having only a 37-percent support.
