U.S. President Donald Trump says he’d “love to run against” Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who took the first major step toward launching a widely anticipated campaign for the presidency.
Trump said in an interview with Fox News Channel’s “All-American New Year” on Monday night that he hopes Warren is among the Democrats to run in 2020.
He said, “We’ll see how she does, I wish her well. I hope she does well. I’d love to run against her.”
Trump tweeted on Thursday an image that took a swipe at Warren's heritage. The image was a mock-up of a campaign poster for Warren that instead of "2020" said "1/2020th."
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.
Trump says Warren “did very badly in proving that she was of Indian heritage,” adding that her decision earlier this year to release a DNA analysis “didn’t work out too well.”
