BOSTON (WHDH) - Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren has been an outspoken vocal critic of Donald Trump, but now that Trump is the President-Elect, Warren is offering to take a different tone.
In a statement, Warren expressed disappointment in the election results but offered to work with the soon-to-be Commander in Chief.
Warren’s statement can be found below:
It’s no secret that I didn’t want to see Donald Trump win yesterday. I’m intensely frustrated by the apparent likelihood that, for the second time in five elections, a Democratic nominee will have won the popular vote but lost the presidency in the electoral college. But the integrity of our democracy is more important than any individual election, and those of us who supported Hillary Clinton will respect this result.
President-Elect Trump promised to rebuild our economy for working people, and I offer to put aside our differences and work with him on that task. When he takes the oath of office as the leader of our democracy and the leader of all Americans, it is my sincere hope that he will fulfill that role with respect and concern for every single person in this country, no matter who they are, where they come from, what they believe, or whom they love.
