Sen. Elizabeth Warren says her life has become a round-the-clock nightmare due to the prospect of Democrats botching the midterm elections.
A conversation with MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow revealed the perpetual “terror” the Massachusetts lawmaker experiences as voters prepare to go to the polls in November. Mrs. Warren admitted her fears Thursday evening when confronted with a scenario in which Democrats fail to capture control of either chamber of Congress.
“I really, really want us to do [succeed]. I’m going to work really, really hard to make that happen,” she said. “I run every day filled with terror that it won’t because if Donald Trump remains in control of the House and the Senate — and the Republicans won’t stop him — I don’t know what happens in the next two years.”
The lawmaker’s comments on “The Rachel Maddow Show” come against a political backdrop in which the economy is surging and over half of all Americans approve of President Trump’s recent summit with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un.
A Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released Wednesday showed 51 percent of respondents in favor of Mr. Trump’s nuclear missile agreement with Kim.
