Listen: President Trump, Donald Trump, Consumer Agency discussed on The Daily
"Do you ever wonder senator if the things that make you such a potent communicator and storyteller and have earned you a significant base of support. Made you a front runner in the Democratic primary that that that might make it harder to actually solve the problems. You've been so nimble at diagnosing and that you've devoted so much of your career to studying all the way back to the eighty s and ninety S. No word alienating. No actually I don't and I'll tell you why cause your vision is very uncompromising to the question becomes are you on compromising look the Consumer Agency for example. Did we get everything. We wanted the consumer agency. No I can compromise. When it's the right thing to compromise? You know what I think. A lot of folks are talking about Anissa Nisa when you ask this question about kind of get along notion. It's how much are you going to yield to the corruption in the system the people who are handing out all campaign contributions and they've got all the lobbyists and they've got the bought and paid for experts whose voices they lift up and they give money to the think tanks cuss they liked. Wipe the system. How it works? And when they can't fight back on substance to go after the Messenger and they say oh well you to uncompromising well yeah if the question is do I think that Washington should be making policy policy based on a revolving door with wall. Street I yeah. I don't think it ought to be doing that. And we built a really great economy automomy for decades in which that didn't happen. What I'm asking for I believe is ultimately quite reasonable? The system has been broken for decades Donald Trump has just accelerated and now we see it big time that that means very much like following the crash of two thousand eight. The door for real change has opened a crack. Now now we could just say we WANNA go back to business as usual the way it was before Donald Trump came along. But not me. I see the door open to crack just like dead it following the financial crisis that it was hard to get through that door for you. It's not about me. Put Down your shoulder and hit as hard as you can at that door. Open it up up and make the changes. We need to make a country so the big question is if Elizabeth Warren is president. How hard you really going to lean into that door to try to crack it open? You know how much she gonNA stick with this. Principle based view issued a need help from the other side and issue willing to alienate. Not just the other side but our own allies in the name of principal. She's always been fighting as the outsider. And what happens. Once you become the insider doesn't uncompromising vision work for a president it's it's not about compromising compromising I think that's just not the key point here it's about having a vision about who you want to work for and then you make decisions as you go along their time time to compromise but you don't start out by saying you know what people are going to pose this so let's just start asking for only two percent that's just not the way to go about it. You lay out the vision and say that's where I'm going ahead in this because this is what I believe in. I believe in what we can do together. I believe in the America we can bill but we've got to have a vision for for that. It can't all be about just you know. Let's let's do slight changes because understand this. Republicans are going to fight us on slight changes ages. So if you're going to be a fight mega defy worth having an make a fight that will inspire millions of people to join. Thanks you bet. I think she signal here. The understands that being president is different from being an advocate pushing from the outside but if a brand fundamentally is to be be uncompromising if that is the brand the brand is to be principled. It's the thing that got her that public following in the first place even when she knew it was gonNA alienate her from some of the people. Closest you're what happens if she becomes president and she feels."
