(Newser) – Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who's made a part-time job of sorts taking on Donald Trump on social media, laid out two choices for the American people Monday night in Philadelphia. "On one side is a man who inherited a fortune from his father and kept it going by cheating people ... a man who has never sacrificed anything for anyone, a man who cares only for himself every minute of every day" she said, per KCRA. "On the other side is one of the smartest, toughest, most tenacious people on this planet." Warren went on to describe "Donald Trump's America," where fear and hate rule and every faction is pitted against every other one—and where it's "everyone against immigrants."

While the various sectors are infighting, Warren noted that "bankers can run our economy for Wall Street, oil companies can fight off clean energy, and giant corporations can ship the last good jobs overseas," per the Boston Globe. But that's not going to happen, Warren says, as she informed the crowd that Hillary Clinton would return American to the people and that "we are not going to be Donald Trump's hate-filled America—not now, not ever." As for Trump's attempts to sow division, Warren concluded, "I've got news for [him]: The American people are not falling for it." (Read more Democratic National Convention stories.)
