"They do stories so big on Elizabeth 'Pocahontas' Warren’s crowd sizes, adding many more people than are actually there, and yet my crowds, which are far bigger, get no coverage at all," Trump tweeted, deploying his derisive nickname for the Democratic presidential hopeful.

Warren, who has steadily risen in polls of the Democratic presidential race in recent months, has attracted impressive crowds at some of her latest campaign events.


Her team said roughly 15,000 people attended her rally in Seattle on Sunday night, and her campaign said she drew 12,000 people at a St. Paul, Minn., event the week before. 

Trump, who regularly fixates on crowd size, has swiped at several candidates in the Democratic race when they have garnered increased attention, including Warren, Sen.

The president takes time out of nearly every campaign rally to claim that scores of people were unable to fit inside the venue where he's speaking.

Trump appeared particularly bothered in the aftermath of a rally in New Hampshire earlier this month when the hashtag #EmptySeatMAGATour trended on social media with photos that purported to show vacant seats at the event, despite thousands showing up for the rally.

Trump's campaign rallies tend to pack the venues where they take place, but some supporters filter out over the course of his remarks, leaving patches of empty seats.
