On Friday, Democrat Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren took a direct jab at her competition, former Vice President Joe Biden, who she accused of siding with “credit card companies” over American citizens.
When asked if she believed Biden was “too cozy with Wall Street,” Warren replied, “Our disagreement is a matter of public record,” and said Biden failed to act when the “biggest financial institutions in this country were trying to put the squeeze on Americans.”
Warren said “there was nobody to stand up for” Americans in debt, adding, “I got in that fight because they just didn’t have anyone, and Joe Biden is on the side of the credit card companies.”

For Warren and the other Democrats seeking the White House in the upcoming 2020 election, Biden’s recent decision to enter the race has left them scrambling to reach liberal voters, who polling indicates are largely interested in the former VP.
