Trump campaign slams Warren as ‘fraud’

 President Trump’s campaign wasted no time going after Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Saturday shortly before she was expected to formally announce her candidacy for the White House in 2020.

Warren has already been exposed as a fraud by the Native Americans she impersonated and disrespected to advance her professional career, and the people of Massachusetts she deceived to get elected,” campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.

“The American people will reject her dishonest campaign and socialist ideas like the Green New Deal, that will raise taxes, kill jobs and crush America’s middle-class. Only under President Trump’s leadership will America continue to grow safer, secure and more prosperous,” he added.

The statement came just before Warren was slated to give a speech in which she is widely expected to announce her bid for the presidency.

It marked the first time that the Trump campaign has issued such a statement blasting an announcement from a Democratic presidential hopeful, after several candidates jumped into the race earlier this year.

Warren, an outspoken critic of Trump and his administration, has maintained a fraught relationship with the president throughout his tenure.

Trump early on latched onto Warren’s past claims of Native American ancestry, often questioning those claims and disparagingly referring to her as “Pocahontas.”

Warren’s claims of Native American heritage has continued to dog her as she has explored a presidential bid.
