Trump's racist Elizabeth Warren taunts have entered a new phasehttps://www.cnn.com/2019/02/11/politics/trump-elizabeth-warren-racist-tweets/index.html
(CNN)President Donald Trump can't merely slur Elizabeth Warren with the nickname "Pocahontas" anymore. That's old hat.
To effectively torment and tease her, he now seems to feel compelled to throw in an allusion to shameful episodes from US history.
This weekend, it was a not-subtle allusion to the Trail of Tears -- the forced migration of American Indians from Mississippi to present-day Oklahoma -- to poke fun at Warren on the occasion of her official 2020 campaign kickoff.
Insensitive by design, Trump set the scene by calling Warren "Pocahontas" and then drove the point home with an all-caps, "See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz" sneer.
