The president’s son Donald Trump Jr. tweeted out the video of Warren’s remarks, adding that “no further commentary” on such an idea was necessary.

Other conservative media representatives condemned the Massachusetts progressive, including Liz Wheeler, the host of "Tipping Point" on One America News Network, who called Warren's stance "crazy."
