Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren guested on Tuesday’s edition of “The View”, and the ultra-liberal senator from Massachusetts unsurprisingly sparred with conservative Meghan McCain.
When the subject of the Donald Trump-ordered drone strike against Iran’s Gen. Qassem Soleimani, McCain tried to pin down Warren for previously agreeing that Soleimani was a “terrorist,” after she issued a statement calling him a “murderer” and referring to his killing as an “assassination.”
According to McCain, Soleimani is “a man who obviously is responsible for hundreds of American troops’ deaths,” so she didn’t “understand the flip-flop” in Warren’s statement.
However, Warren insisted the “change” between her two public statements wasn’t a change, ultimately agreeing when McCain continually hammered her over whether she thought Soleimani was a terrorist.
“Of course he is,” said Warren, but had a larger point to make. “The question, though, is what’s the right response,” Warren added. “And the response that Donald Trump has picked is the most incendiary, and has moved us right to the edge of war.”
Warren also talked about her tax plan, with McCain struggling to get a word in edgewise while her co-hosts peppered Warren with their questions. Watch:
