Speaking on CNN ahead of Trump's 100-day mark later this week, Warren slammed the president for failing to deliver, saying instead what “he’s delivered is a gut punch to America's working people.”

Warren told CNN’s Jake Tapper that though Trump promised to make working-class Americans his top priority, he's failed them by assembling a White House team of billionaires and bankers.

“First, he assembles a team of billionaires and bankers and hands the keys over to them. Says to Goldman Sachs, you figure out how to deregulate the economy. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?” Warren asked.

She said the president’s executive orders open the door for companies to unfairly take advantage of their employees.

“It's not just the fact they are executive orders; it's what they actually do. He signed off on one that makes it easier for government contractors to cheat their employees out of their wages,” she said. “He signs off on another one that makes it easier for employers who kill or maim their employees to hide that. He makes it easier for investment advisers to cheat retirees.”

Warren charged that when Trump embraced the GOP’s plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare, which she refers to as "TrumpCare," it showed that he didn’t care about the middle class.

“When he embraces this healthcare plan and says he's going go all in and it had three main features. Part one, knock 24 million people off their healthcare. Number two, raise costs for a lot of middle-class families. And why? For number three, so that you could provide tax cuts for a handful of millionaires and billionaires,” Warren continued.

Warren's comments come as Trump approaches his 100th day in office, a benchmark that he recently dubbed an "artificial" timeline.
