Who is Elizabeth Warren and why has Donald Trump been calling her ‘Pocahontas’ during their ongoing feud? Here’s everything you need to know about the US Senator who has repeatedly condemned the Republican presidential nominee.
Elizabeth Warren, 66, is best known as a Democratic icon, especially in her role as a United States Senator. Unfortunately, her drama with Donald Trump, 69, has put her name in the headlines as he continues to make derogatory statements and allegations about her heritage.
1.) First and foremost, Elizabeth Warren is a United States Senator.
After working as a professor at Harvard Law School, followed by being the chair of the Congressional Oversight Panel after the 2008 financial crises, Elizabeth ran for Senator in 2011. In Nov. 2012 she won her seat and became the first woman Senator in Massachusetts history.
2.) Elizabeth is also a Democrat.
For those who pay attention to politics, it is no secret that Senator Warren is a Democrat through and through. Not only is she a leading Democrat, but she is incredibly popular among progressives all over the country. Interestingly enough, Elizabeth has confessed that prior to 1995 she voted solely Republican. She later revealed that she originally thought Republicans “best supported markets,” but changed her views after she found she no longer believed that to be true.
3.) It was rumored she would be running for president in the 2016 election.
Due to Elizabeth’s rising career in politics, many political pundits believed she would run for President Of The United States during the 2016 election. Not only did she not run, but she has since said that she has “no intention” on ever running for that office in particular.
4.) Senator Warren is adamantly ANTI-Donald Trump.
Although Senator Warren has not actually endorsed anyone for President of the United States in the 2016 election just yet, she has had some fun picking on Republican nominee Donald Trump. Elizabeth has been slamming the nominee repeatedly on Twitter, claiming he believes his own lies and that he only cares about himself.
5.) She caused controversy when she claimed to have Native American heritage in 2012.
Oh, so you’re wondering why Donald thinks it’s funny to call her Pocahontas, right? Well, back in May 2012 Elizabeth revealed that she has Native American heritage. Elizabeth claims that when she was hired as a professor, she told the national directory of law school personnel so that her employers were always aware of her heritage.
