On Saturday, President Trump took to social media to lambast Democrat Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, who he said is “sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas,” for her false claims of Native American ancestry.
“Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate” asked Trump, “or has she decided that, after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore?”
Ending his scathing tweet, the president added, “See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!”
Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President. Will she run as our first Native American presidential candidate, or has she decided that after 32 years, this is not playing so well anymore? See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!

President Trump’s remarks came in response to Warren’s official announcement regarding her plans for the 2020 election.
Warren has publicly and frequently sparred with Trump on a number of occasions, and has recently faced mounting backlash over claims of Native American heritage.
