Elizabeth Warren on what Barack Obama got wrong

00:00 / 47:27

Elizabeth Warren is the founder of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau,
the senior senator from Massachusetts, and the author of the new book, “This
Fight Is Our Fight: The Battle to Save America's Middle Class.”You might have
heard of her.Warren is also one of the Democrats most capable of defining the
Democratic Party’s soul and message in a post-Trump era. In her book, she says
she had at least one big disagreement with President Obama — a disagreement
that speaks to the direction she wants to lead the party. Obama told
Americans, “the system isn’t as rigged as you think.”"No, President Obama,”
Warren replies, "the system is as rigged as we think. In fact, it’s worse than
most Americans realize.”In this interview, we go deep into Warren’s view on
how, where, and why the system is rigged — as well as what can be done about
it. We also talk about whether fighting Trump requires matching his tone and
tactics, how complex policies and processes create space for special interests
to take over, and why Trump’s abandonment of economic populism hasn’t affected
his support among his voters.Warren is an able, thoughtful advocate for one of
the Democratic Party’s possible futures: becoming a party that represents the
economic populism Trump claimed to champion, but quickly abandoned. But as
she’s the first to admit, that won’t be easy.Books:“Evicted," by Matthew
