Senator Elizabeth Warren is continuing her criticisms as President-elect Donald Trump moves through his transition, taking aim Friday at former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney:

The tweet included a composite image of people reportedly on President-elect Trump’s shortlist for top positions in his administration. Five of the 42 faces are women.

All of Trump’s publicly announced picks so far have been men.

In a turnabout, Romney is expected to meet with Trump this weekend. The 2012 presidential nominee had blasted Trump during the 2016 race, including calling him “phony.”

Senator Warren’s tweet references a comment Romney made during a debate in the last presidential race about his record of hiring women.


“I went to a number of women’s groups and said, ‘Can you help us find folks?’ and they brought us whole binders full of women.”

The phrase became one of the points of contention as many used it to attack Romney’s record on women’s rights.
