Trump, Warren Trade Barbs After He Says She Didn’t Have ‘Guts’ To Run For Prez

Presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump continued his attacks Wednesday against Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), tweeting that she didn’t “have the guts” to run for the presidency.

He also questioned her Native American heritage again:

Trump’s comment comes after Warren, in an interview with Mic News, refused to rule out being Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s running mate.

Here’s how Warren responded:

Trump and Warren have engaged in an Twitter flame war for days. Both have used the social media platform to criticize and attack one another, typically with multiple tweets at a time.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
