NEWYORK (Reuters) – Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren said on Friday she will significantly increase the U.S. diplomatic force and not give those jobs to wealthy donors.
Warren, a U.S. senator from Massachusetts, says Republican President Donald Trump has understaffed the U.S. State Department and offered plum jobs to big donors.
“That’s why I’m pledging to put America’s national interests ahead of campaign donations and end the corrupt practice of selling cushy diplomatic posts to wealthy donors — and I call on everyone running for President to do the same,” Warren said in her latest policy rollout.
