Donald Trump's Elizabeth Warren Video Comment Angers Twitter Users

Donald Trump and Elizabeth Warren

Mr Trump's barb was a response to an Instagram live by Ms Warren on New Year's Eve, just after she announced she was running for president.

President Trump used Native American stereotypes to mock Elizabeth Warren's weeks-old announcement that she will run for president.

Some also alleged Trump's tweet was part of a strategy to divert attention from the Mueller probe, which is investigating potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Beto O'Rourke.

"This is my sweetie", Warren says, referring to her husband.

Sunday night, President Trump tweeted that the video would have "been a smash" if Warren "did this commercial from Bighorn or Wounded Knee instead of her kitchen".

"What matters to me", she continued, "is that everything in this campaign is about the people who are out there every single day - work hard, play by the rules - and just want a government that's on their side".

Trump tweeted: "It's their house, he's supposed to be there!"

"I drink Michelob Ultra - the club soda of beers", she joked.

"No, I'll pass on a beer for now", he responded.

Trump has repeatedly attacked Warren over her claims of Native American heritage and has publicly nicknamed her "Pocahontas".

The senator has not claimed to be a citizen of any tribal nation and said she respected the distinction between DNA and tribal affiliation, but the president was quick to taunt her over the test. While she used the results to counter allegations she lied about that ancestry to get ahead in academia, Trump and other Republicans highlighted how diluted that ancestry was revealed to be.

Since 2012, Ms Warren has also denied benefiting from her reported Native American background, when it emerged that she was listed as a minority in a Harvard Law School directory.

Warren visited the early primary state of New Hampshire Saturday to deliver a message of economic populism and clean government.
