“Sen. Elizabeth Warren formally announced her candidacy for the White House on Saturday, and hours later President Trump weighed in on his newest campaign opponent, appearing to make a joke with reference to the Trail of Tears,” USA Today reports.
Tweeted Trump: “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!”
“The president’s use of the word trail in all caps is a potential reference to the Trail of Tears, the forced relocation of Native Americans from their homelands in the Southern United States to reservations in Oklahoma in the 1800s.”Save to Favorites
