Warren Remains Silent on Trump Victory

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) has looked into the future and does not see Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as a viable candidate for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination in 2020

During this year’s presidential campaign, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) became one of the most relentless critics of Republican candidate Donald Trump, using speeches and social media to question his temperament and suggest that he profited from the 2008 housing crash. But now that Trump won the presidential race, the architect of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) has failed to acknowledge his victory, let alone offer congratulations.

A review of the Web site for Warren’s Senate office and the social media accounts for both her senatorial and personal endeavors reveal no mention of the results of the presidential election. Warren praised Illinois Democrat Tammy Duckworth’s election to the U.S. Senate on Twitter and noted the importance of voting on Facebook, but offered no comments on Trump’s win or Hillary Clinton’s defeat.

Warren and Trump engaged in a long-running and often vitriolic war of words during the campaign months, with the senator calling him a “loser” and claiming that he rooted for the 2008 housing crash for financial profit. For his part, Trump dismissed Warren as “goofy” and nicknamed her “Pocahontas,” a reference to the controversy regarding Warren’s claim of Native American heritage.

On Election Day, MassLive.com reported that journalists attempted to get a response from Warren on the possibility of working with a Trump White House. "I'll work with anyone who is out there trying to make life better on behalf of working families across this country," Warren said. "I have made clear what it is that I think will be helpful, and I'll work with anyone who wants to make college more affordable, that wants to expand Social Security, that wants to hold banks accountable. I'm looking forward to any opportunity."

When specifically asked about working with a President Trump, Warren repeated, "Any opportunity to work on those issues."
