DATE: May 25, 2019 COVERAGE: President Trump tweets a photo of himself with a white baseball bat and an “I’m With Her” shirt in an apparent attempt to prove his support of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) article DUE TO TRUMP’S PRESS CONFERENCE AT THE WHEATFIELD DEAL IN WEST PALM BEACH, FLORIDA, President Donald Trump has made several tweets regarding Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic senator who was recently elected to the Senate.
“I will NEVER let her down!”
Trump tweeted in response to a tweet from the vice president, who is known for his controversial Twitter attacks.
“Elizabeth Warren is one of the greatest, most respected people EVER elected to this Senate.
I love her!”
The vice president was referring to Warren’s loss to Democrat Tim Kaine in the 2016 election, which she blamed on Trump’s lack of political experience.
“If you look at my record, it is the opposite of Donald Trump,” Warren said on CBS’s Face the Nation on February 27, 2020.
Trump was quick to point out that he had endorsed Warren as she ran for the Democratic nomination in 2016.
“She’s one of those people who just got up and ran.
I just endorsed her, I thought she was terrific,” Trump said.
“It was very important to me that I did.
I have great respect for her.”
Trump also claimed that Warren had called him “Mr. President.”
“She was on Face the List with me.
I called her and she called me, she said she wanted to be on my list,” Trump added.
“And she’s going to be very, very soon.”
“Elizabeth is one hell of a politician,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on February 25, 2020, as he touted Warren’s record in Congress and her endorsement of his campaign.
“The most respected person in the world.
She is a great politician.
She’s very much respected in the Democratic Party.
She has a tremendous following, and I am very, many, many people who have tremendous support from Democrats and Republicans,” Trump continued.
“But if you look on her resume, you see that she is a very, great politician, she is very, much respected.
And I love that she was endorsed by me.”
Warren responded on February 26, 2020 that she did not feel like the vice presidency was “entirely appropriate for a woman.”
“I did not want to be vice president.
I think I’m the one person who would be most qualified to be president,” Warren told the Washington Post.
“In the Senate, you have to have the ability to work with everybody, but you also have to work to reach across the aisle.
And my experience has been that I am a really good communicator, I have been very successful at that.
I do think I would have been a great president,” she said.
Warren also responded to Trump’s endorsement by saying, “I can’t wait for the day when I am the first female president.”
Warren said she will continue to be outspoken on issues of race and gender.
“Every day that I sit down to work, I look around and I hear the stories of women who are being attacked,” she told the New York Times in an interview on February 21, 2020 when asked about Trump’s tweets.
“That’s one thing that I really have come to realize, I am not going to let Donald Trump’s sexist comments stand in the way of making our country great,” Warren added.
