(CNSNews.com) - Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D.-N.Y.) said in a townhall meeting hosted by CNN in Jackson, Miss., on Monday night that “white supremacists post a threat to the United States…like ISIS, like al Qaida.”

A person at townhall asked Warren: “Since the election of Donald Trump, the number of hate crimes has increased and white supremacists have become more emboldened online and in public. What are your plans to unite the country?”

Warren responded: “Oh, good. Thank you for that question. You know, it starts with the fact that we've got to recognize the threat posed by white nationalism. White supremacists pose a threat to the United States like any other terrorist group, like ISIS, like Al Qaida.

“And leadership starts at the top,” Warren said. “And that means you've got to call it out.

“No sitting by,” she said. “And then when you call it out, as president of the United States, you've got to use the tools available to you. And that means get the Justice Department when they break the law to go after them with full prosecution. That's what I can do. Thank you. Thank you. Good question.”
