Trump blasts Hillary surrogate Elizabeth Warren Monday after Warren says he’ll ‘crush you into the dirt’
Returns to calling her ‘Pocohontas’ and charges she made up claim of Native American heritage
Warren also called Trump ‘goofy’ – a label he frequently slaps on her
Race attack comes as Warren does tryout as potential VP by mocking Trum on the trail
Donald Trump went on the warpath against Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren Monday, as Warren appeared with Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail to attack Trump.
‘She made up her heritage, which I think is racist. I think she’s a racist, actually because what she did was very racist,’ Trump told NBC Monday.
‘What she did was very racist,’ Trump continued.
Trump also called Warren ‘one of the least productive senators in the United States Senate. We call her Pocahontas for a reason.’
‘She said she’s 5 per cent Native American. She was unable to prove it. She used the fact that she was Native American to advance her career. Elizabeth Warren is a total fraud. I know it. Other people who work with her know it. Elizabeth Warren is a total fraud.’
Trump went after the Democratic liberal firebrand on a day when Warren appeared alongside Clinton on the campaign trail – in what looked like a tryout for a potential running mate.
Clinton herself held seemed to relish Warren’s repeated hits on Trump as she saluted her newest champion.
‘I do just love to see how he gets under Donald Trump’s thin skin,’ Clinton said.
Warren repeatedly went after Trump in personal terms, repeating her line that Trump is a ‘money grubber,’ then kept hitting, all but ensuring a slug-fest if for some reason Trump were in the mood to keep quiet.
‘When Donald Trump says he’ll make America great, he means make it even greater for rich guys just like Donald Trump,’ Warren charged.
‘That’s who Donald Trump is – the guy who wants it all for himself.’
She called him ‘a nasty man who will never become president of the United States and a ‘thin-skinned bully.’
Now that Warren has endorsed Clinton, there has been increasing talk that Clinton should select her as a way to unite the party and appeal to the progressive Bernie Sanders wing.
But Clinton’s strong recent performance in polls may argue for a safer more conventional choice such as Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia.
Trump’s attack is a reminder that if Clinton does choose Warren, she can expect pushback.
Trump’s attack brought back a charge made in May when the two had a nasty war of words.
The charge stems from Warren’s 2012 Senate campaign against then-Senator Scott Brown, when it came out that Warren had listed herself as a minority when she was a faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania Law school and at Harvard law.
Warren has said she believed she had Cherokee ancestors – and denied she invented the heritage to gain a leg up in academia.
“Everyone on our mother’s side — aunts, uncles, and grandparents — talked openly about their Native American ancestry,” Warren wrote in her memoir in 2014.
“My brothers and I grew up on stories about our grandfather building one-room schoolhouses and about our grandparents’ courtship and their early lives together in Indian Territory.”
Detailed reporting at the time failed to confirm the legitimacy of the claim.
