President Trump used Native American stereotypes to mock Elizabeth Warren's weeks-old announcement that she will run for president. In the video, originally posted on Instagram in December, Warren is seen sipping beer in her kitchen while introducing her husband to viewers.
Warren, 69, who had announced her candidacy for the White House earlier in the day, cracked open a beer and took some questions from her social media followers in an apparent attempt to channel the social media efforts of younger Democratic pols like Reps.
"If Elizabeth Warren, often referred to by me as Pocahontas, did this commercial from Bighorn or Wounded Knee instead of her kitchen, with her husband dressed in full Indian garb, it would have been a smash!" he said on Twitter. "I'm glad you're here, '" Trump continued.
Trump tweeted: "It's their house, he's supposed to be there!"
Trump has been lambasting Warren since his 2016 campaign, when he began derisively labeling her "Pocahontas" in a shot against her claims of Native American heritage.
At a campaign rally in July past year, Trump said he would donate a million dollars to Warren's "favourite charity" if she took a test proving her Native American heritage.
In the video, the liberal firebrand had a craving for alcohol: "Hold on a second - I'm gonna get me a beer", she said, as she walked out of view of the camera.
The test, performed by Stanford University professor Carlos Bustamante, concluded that while the vast majority of Warren's ancestry is European, there is definitive evidence that she has Native American blood.
He shared a mock campaign logo that read Warren 1/2020th, a play on 2020 and a DNA test which revealed she has a distant Native American ancestor.
