Pressley blasts Trump as 'racist, misogynistic, truly empathy-bankrupt'

Democratic congressional nominee Ayanna Pressley took a shot at President Trump in her victory speech on Tuesday night.

Moments after her rival - 10-term Rep. Michael Capuano (D-Mass.) - conceded the primary race in his Boston-area district, Pressley told supporters that the president is a "racist" and "empathy-bankrupt" individual.

"While our president is a racist, misogynistic, truly empathy-bankrupt man," the conditions which have made [MA-07] one of most unequal in America was cemented through policy long before he ever descended the escalator in Trump Tower," the Boston City councilor said.

Pressley's upset Tuesday night marked the latest victory for progressives against Democratic establishment candidates.

She received a number of high-profile endorsements, including from the Boston Globe and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the democratic socialist who enjoyed a similar victory over Rep. Joe Crowley in her New York Democratic primary earlier this year.

"It seems like change is on the way," Pressley said to cheers during her speech.

If elected in November, she will be the first black woman to represent the state in Congress. There are no Republicans running for the seat.
