Before leaving for Hawaii to start his Asia Trip, President Trump attacked Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) this morning with his favorite racial attack by calling her “Pocahontas,” which refers to her self-proclaimed Native American background. Trump regularly called Warren the racially charged term on the campaign trail.
“Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries! Lets go FBI & Justice Dept,” Trump posted this morning, furthering his ongoing attempt to distract from special counsel Robert Mueller’s constantly heating up Russia investigation.
Warren was having none of Trump’s distractions and fired back with pure facts to bring attention back where it belongs. She also defended the Justice Department and FBI whom Trump was trying to bully like a dictator. The best is that she outright called Trump “desperate.”
Warren is one of the leading Democratic contenders for the 2020 presidential election, which might be why Trump is singling her out. All he’s doing however is showing that he is a racist and drawing more attention to his entanglement with the Russians.
