Warren slammed Trump’s impact on the middle class two months after he entered the Oval Office, saying he's "delivered one gut punch after another to hardworking" American families.

“The whole reason I ever ended up in politics is because I wanted to fight for working families and this is the fight I am in every single day,” added Warren.
