Senator Elizabeth Warren sharply criticized the Trump administration and congressional Republicans for straying away from American values in their handling of the opioid crisis and family separations at the border during a Saturday town hall meeting in the South End.
“This isn’t about politics,” she said, standing on stage at the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology. “What it means to have values is you hold onto them, and you hold onto them whether people agree with them or not.”
The Cambridge Democrat opened the event by reminding the crowd of about 300 people that it was the one-year anniversary of the Republicans’ failure to repeal Obamacare in the US Senate. She encouraged the audience to remember the power of their collective voice.
