President Trump took another tired dig at Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who has launched a presidential bid against Trump in 2020, by, yet again, poking fun at her heritage.

During an interview with The Daily Caller, Trump was asked who his “dream” candidate to run against in 2020 might be. Trump mocked Warren for not being as popular as “they” expected, suggesting she fell into a some sort of “trap”: “The Pocahontas trap.”

“Well so far a lot of them. I don’t mind. I think that there’s a lot of talk about — it looks like Elizabeth Warren has not caught on like they thought she would. She fell into a trap. It’s called the Pocahontas trap,” he said. “There’s so many of them. The truth is there are some I’d love to run against.”

Trump has mocked Warren countless times for her claims of having traces of Native American heritage with his “Pocahontas” digs. Warren released the results of DNA test last year showing she has a small amount of Native American heritage, the optics of which were criticized by Republicans and Democrats alike.
