BOSTON (AP) — Senator Elizabeth Warren says she plans to get behind a Democratic candidate for president but that it’s too early to discuss whether she would be open to running for vice president.

The Massachusetts Democrat also criticized Republican Donald Trump for ‘‘fostering and fomenting’’ the anger that erupted into a melee Friday in Chicago, forcing the cancellation of a scheduled rally.

Warren made the comments during an interview broadcast Sunday on NECN.


On Monday, Warren also took to Facebook to disparage Trump, calling him “a bigger, uglier threat every day that goes by.”

Warren hasn’t endorsed anyone for president. Asked if she planned to back a candidate, she said yes, but added that she doesn’t have a timeline for when that might happen.

Warren said it’s ‘‘way, way premature to talk about’’ whether she would consider a vice presidential bid, saying she loves being a senator.
