Massachusetts Senator, New York Billionaire Wage Back-And-Forth War of Words
â€œWho is that, the Indian? You mean the Indian?â€ Trump asked when questioned about Warren's comments. The label, some would say an attempt to slur the Democrat from Massachusetts, comes from controversy that raged in 2012 when it was revealed Sen. Warren wrote on a Harvard employment documentÂ that she is part native American Indian.
Warren Monday took to Twitter and posted a series of tweets attacking Trump as "a loser," whose "insecurities are on parade," including, "petty bullying, attacks on women, cheap racism, flagrant narcissism." But she also warned that "just becauseÂ @realDonaldTrumpÂ is a loser everywhere else doesnâ€™t mean heâ€™ll lose this election."
The battle began when Warren last week on Facebook wrote,Â "Donald Trump is a bigger, uglier threat every day that goes by â€” and it's time for decent people everywhere â€” Republican, Democrat, Independent - to say No More Donald."
In Sunday's New York Times, anti-Clinton columnist Maureen Dowd quoted Trump responding to Warren's remarks.
"I think it's wonderful because the Indians can now partake in the future of the country," Trump said, according to Dowd. "She's got about as much Indian blood as I have."
After Trump's press event Monday, Sen. Warren once again took to Twitter, posting this new series of tweets:
Why is it that @realDonaldTrump can call himself the â€œunityâ€ candidate while basing his campaign on racism, sexism, xenophobia & hatred?â€” Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) March 21, 2016
.@RealDonaldTrump is â€œcool with being called an authoritarian,â€ isn't upset at Hitler comparisons & thinks we wonâ€™t fight back? WRONG!â€” Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) March 21, 2016
We cannot elect wannabe tyrants to the White House. Not now, not ever. Itâ€™s up to all of us us to stop @realDonaldTrump .â€” Elizabeth Warren (@elizabethforma) March 21, 2016
There's a clear winner in this battle, and it's not Donald Trump.Â
