Elizabeth Warren Praises Trump's Tax Plan

"Donald Trump and I both agree that there ought to be more taxation of the billionaires, the people who are making their money on Wall Street." -- Sen. Elizabeth Warren
Elizabeth Warren Praises Trump's Tax Plan

Why wouldn't she? He's only saying what she's been saying all along:

Wall Street foe Elizabeth Warren approves of Donald Trump's tax plan. Warren, the Democratic Massachusetts senator known for railing against policies that benefit the rich and the financial sector, said Tuesday she could get behind Trump's proposal to raise taxes on the wealthiest.

"There are a lot of places where he gets out and talks about important things," Warren said during an appearance on "The View." "Donald Trump and I both agree that there ought to be more taxation of the billionaires, the people who are making their money on Wall Street."

Warren's praise came as Trump, the Republican presidential front-runner, has shrugged off attacks that he is a Democrat running on the GOP ticket. At the same time, Warren slammed Trump's attacks on illegal immigration, including his plan to deport 11 million immigrants.

"You can't be president of the United States if that's your view about how we're going to solve immigration reform," Warren said.

Warren, who has refused to run for president in 2016, has kept a close watch on the White House race. She also praised Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont for "generating an enormous amount of interest" during her TV appearance. But she stopped there despite calls for her to enter the race herself.

"This isn't about me," Warren said when asked about her White House ambitions. "I'm going to be out there talking about what I believe in, no matter what."
