PHILADELPHIA (AP) — 10:50 p.m.

Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren says Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has excited Americans who are rightfully angry. But she says he's offering no solutions for their problems.

She tells the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia that Trump can see voter anger ''from the top of Trump Tower'' and tells voters that ''he and he alone can fixed the rigged system.''

Warren says the only actual clear policy proposal Trump offered in his own nomination acceptance last week was ''a stupid wall'' that ''will never get built.'' Trump wants to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.

Elizabeth Warren is taking aim at Donald Trump's business record, and she says he's never ''lifted a finger to help working people.''

The Massachusetts senator is using her speech at the Democratic National Convention to highlight Trump's comments about benefiting from the 2008 housing crash — and she's noting his business bankruptcies.

Warren is asking: ''What kind of a man acts like this? What kind of a man roots for an economic crash?'' She adds, ''What kind of a man cheats students, cheats investors, cheats workers? A man who must never be president of the United States.''

Elizabeth Warren is offering a harsh assessment of an American economy that she says is tilted against working people. The liberal favorite and Massachusetts senator says ''there's lots of wealth in America'' but ''it isn't trickling down to families like yours.''

Instead, she tells delegates at the Democratic National Convention on Monday night, the ''system is rigged'' as ''Americans bust their tails'' while ''wages stay flat.''

Warren rejects those who say such an economy is a result of a Congress that isn't working. She says Congress works fine when corporations and the wealthy seek tax breaks and favorable regulations.

But she says, ''try to do something for working people,'' and the ''gridlock'' ensues. Warren says GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump's ''whole life has been about taking advantage of that rigged system.''

10:30 p.m.

Elizabeth Warren says the choice in the presidential election is clear, and she says Republican nominee Donald Trump ''cares about himself every minute of every day.''

The Massachusetts senator is a favorite among liberals, and she's speaking at the Democrat National Convention on Monday night as the party tries to unite around Hillary Clinton after a divisive primary.

Warren tells the crowd: ''I'm with Hillary. This choice is personal. It's about who we are as a people.''
