Nashua - Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren accused Donald Trump and his fellow Republicans of "making hate okay" as she campaigned for Hillary Clinton on Saturday.

"We're here to say hate is not okay," Warren told a crowd of roughly 500 volunteers packed inside a New Hampshire campaign office. "We build a stronger America together, that's what this is about."

Warren is making three stops across New Hampshire, a battleground presidential state and home to one of the top Senate races in the country, a contest between incumbent Republican Sen Kelly Ayotte and Democratic Governor Maggie Hassan.

Warren is tying Ayotte and the rest of the Republican field to Trump as she works to fire up her party six weeks before the November 8 general election.

Hundreds of volunteers from New Hampshire and Massachusetts lined up to see Warren, a favourite of the party's liberal wing.

A frequent and biting critic of Trump, Warren said she never predicted a major presidential candidate would base a campaign on scapegoating Mexicans, women and Muslims.

"What Donald Trump is doing is not what any of us thought a man who's running for president would do," she said. "He's found something much uglier that he wants to make the basis of his campaign."

Warren was particularly critical of Texas Sen Ted Cruz, who said he'd vote for Trump after denouncing him in the primary campaign.

"Is that really what your word is worth, Ted Cruz?" she said.
