Sen. Elizabeth Warren on Monday evening (D-MA) accused President Donald Trump, without citing any evidence, of making “creepy physical threats” against her after the president demanded the progressive senator and Democrat 2020 hopeful apologize for grossly overstating her Native American heritage.
He’s scared,” Warren tweeted along with a video of President Trump criticizing the Democrat over her DNA test results.
Speaking before reporters during a briefing on the government’s Hurricane Michael recovery efforts in Macon, Georgia, President Trump said Warren “owes the country” an apology regarding the test results.
In addition to earning the president’s scorn, the Cherokee Nation blasted Warren for falsely claiming she possesses Native American heritage.

We all know why @realDonaldTrump makes creepy physical threats about me, right? He’s scared. He’s trying to do what he always does to women who scare him: call us names, attack us personally, shrink us down to feel better about himself. It may soothe his ego – but it won’t work. pic.twitter.com/2rfPSlvlQA
