Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is preparing to wage war to make sure that Donald Trump, the now-presumptive Republican nominee, “never reaches the White House.”

In a sharply-worded Facebook post and series of tweets issued Tuesday evening, shortly after Trump’s sweeping victory in Indiana and GOP rival Ted Cruz’s withdrawal were announced, Warren declared:

From there, Warren launched into a tirade against the real estate mogul, dissecting the ways in which he would be a dangerous choice to lead the United States. Though a darling of the left, the senator’s stinging take-down included critiques that could resonate with conservatives as well.

“There’s more enthusiasm for him among leaders of the KKK than leaders of the political party he now controls,” Warren wrote, noting that he “incites supporters to violence” and “doesn’t mind associations with history’s worst dictators.”

Further, she said that Trump “attacks veterans like John McCain who were captured and puts our servicemembers at risk by cheerleading illegal torture.”

Citing widely-feared international threats like “ISIS militants” and “North Korean strongman Kim Jong-Un conducting nuclear tests,” Warren pointed out that the billionaire’s foreign policy team “has been called a ‘collection of charlatans,'” while his national security platform has been described by experts as “incoherent” and “truly bizarre.”

With an appeal catered to the masses, Warren issued a plea to voters and lawmakers across the political spectrum.

“What happens next will test the character for all of us—Republican, Democrat, and Independent,” she wrote. “It will determine whether we move forward as one nation or splinter at the hands of one man’s narcissism and divisiveness.”

“I know which side I’m on,” Warren vowed, “and I’m going to fight my heart out to make sure Donald Trump’s toxic stew of hatred and insecurity never reaches the White House.”
