Earlier in the day, Warren went on a Twitter rant against Trump, calling him a "loser" and a "serious threat" to the United States.

Trump accused Warren of inflaming tensions between everyday Americans by attacking the legitimacy of his White House run.

“The problem with this country right now is it’s so divided,” he said. "People like Elizabeth Warren really have to get their act together because it’s going to stay divided."

“That includes Hillary,” Trump continued. "And that probably includes me."

Warren met with controversy during her 2012 Senate campaign when reports emerged that Harvard Law School once touted her alleged Cherokee and Delaware ancestors as proof of its faculty’s diversity.
