Sen. Elizabeth WarrenElizabeth Ann WarrenNewsom endorses Kamala Harris for president Constitutional conservatives need to oppose the national emergency Poll: Sanders, Biden seen as most popular second choices in Dem primary MORE (D-Mass.) ripped President Trump's signing of an executive order to create an "election integrity" commission Thursday, saying it should instead be called a "vote intimidation commission."

"Today [Trump] signed an order launching a 'Vote Fraud Commission,' but it really should be called a "Vote Intimidation Commission," Warren tweeted.

"[Trump] picked Kris Kobach – architect of some of the most racist & anti-voter state laws – to lead this new conspiracy crusade," she continued over a series of tweets. "The GOP spent [years] gutting voting rights & suppressing black & Latino votes. We can’t allow [Trump] to turn the clocks back more.

 

  

Trump signed an executive order Wednesday establishing a commission tasked with reviewing Trump’s allegations that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 elections.
