President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Sunday night to slam Massachusetts senator Elizabeth Warren, making fun of her and the video in which she announced her presidential intentions.
Senator Warren posted the video on her Instagram account on New Year’s Eve, where she is seen drinking beer and introducing her husband in their kitchen.
Trump mocked the interaction, describing it as a “catastrophe,” especially when Warren thanked her husband, Bruce, whom she introduced as her “sweetie.”
“He [Bruce] is the best and I’m crazy about him. Trump responded to the video on Sunday, commenting on how she thanked her husband when she said: ‘I’m glad you’re here’,” Warren said.
“If Elizabeth Warren, often referred to by me as Pocahontas, did this commercial from Bighorn or Wounded Knee instead of her kitchen, with her husband dressed in full Indian garb, it would have been a smash!” Trump wrote in his Twitter post.
Warren has also faced criticism from the White House and other Republicans, who claim she used her native American heritage to advance her career.
Debbie White Dove Porreco, who is a descendant of Pocahontas, said on Fox News that Warren should apologize for her claims of having Cherokee ancestry.
