Trump: Elizabeth Warren Is a ‘Racist’ and a Fraud

donald-trumpDonald Trump reacted to Elizabeth Warren joining Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail today by taking his “Pocahontas” attacks a step further.

In an interview with NBC News’ Hallie Jackson, Trump said he really hopes that Clinton chooses Warren for VP so he gets to go after her during the campaign trail as “one of the least productive senators.”

Oh, and then there’s the whole racism thing.

Warren saying she’s part-Native American has stirred up a bit of controversy over the past few years, but Trump has dialed up the attacks to 11:

“She said she’s 5 percent 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… She made up her heritage, which I think is racist. I think she’s very racist, actually because what she did was very racist.”

The reason Trump might be so outraged at her is because of how snarky Warren has gotten about Trump––including calling him a racist––on the campaign trail.
