Trump falls back on racist ‘Pocahontas’ attack on Warren — after stewing all night
It took all night, but presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump slapped back at Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Twitter Friday morning after the Massachusetts Democrat harshly criticized him is a devastating speech Thursday night.
Hours before Warren formally endorsed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Warren lashed out Trump as, “… a loud, nasty, thin-skinned fraud who has never risked anything for anyone and who serves no one but himself.”
Hammering the nominee for his racist attacks on Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is overseeing the Trump University case, Warren accused of Trump of being a bully.
“Trump is picking on someone who is ethically bound not to defend himself – exactly what you’d expect from a thin-skinned, racist bully,” she said. “Race-baiting a judge who spent years defending America from the terror of murderers and drug traffickers simply because long ago his family came to America from somewhere else. You, Donald Trump, are a total disgrace.”
Trump was surprisingly quiet on Twitter Thursday night following Warren’s speech, finally responding over 12 hours later with: “Pocahontas is at it again! Goofy Elizabeth Warren, one of the least productive U.S. Senators, has a nasty mouth. Hope she is V.P. choice.”
Warren, who was expected to meet with Clinton Friday morning, has become a thorn in Trump’s side by criticizing his business practices and campaigning style. The businessman has fired back repeatedly calling her “Pocahontas,” a slur that proved ineffective for Trump supporter Scott Brown when he lost his senate seat to her in 2012.
