President Donald Trump continued to train fire on possible 2020 challenger Sen.

Sunday night, President Trump tweeted that the video would have "been a smash" if Warren "did this commercial from Bighorn or Wounded Knee instead of her kitchen". "I'm glad you're here" It's their house, he's supposed to be there!" he added.

Tweeting a video of the prominent Democratic politician who has said on several occasions she has partial Native American ancestry, Trump again referred to her as Pocahontas.

Trump revived one of his favorite nicknames for Warren and even jabbed at her husband, saying he should have been "dressed in full Indian garb".

"I drink Michelob Ultra - the club soda of beers", she joked.

"Um, want a beer?" she then asked as her husband, Bruce Mann, briefly entered the room. Then, matter-of-factly from across the camera as he left the kitchen, he offered a quick farewell: "Enjoy your beer".


It is unclear why Trump waited two weeks to respond to the video but it reprises his reference to her claims of Native American heritage.

At a campaign rally in July a year ago, Trump said he would donate a million dollars to Warren's "favourite charity" if she took a test proving her Native American heritage.

The test, performed by Stanford University professor Carlos Bustamante, concluded that while the vast majority of Warren's ancestry is European, there is definitive evidence that she has Native American blood.

Warren visited the early primary state of New Hampshire Saturday to deliver a message of economic populism and clean government.

Senator Elizabeth Warren speaks during a New Hampshire organizing event for her 2020 presidential exploratory committee at Manchester Community College on January 12 in Manchester, New Hampshire.
