Trump, Warren engage in Twitter war

Elizabeth Warren is not impressed.

That's what the Massachusetts senator made clear in an exclusive interview with Mic, as she responded to presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's new moniker for her: "Goofy Elizabeth Warren."

"Really? That's the best you could come up with? Come on. I thought Donald Trump said he was a guy that was good with words," Warren said in a sit-down with Mic's Zeeshan Aleem. The full interview will be available Thursday.

Let’s be honest - @realDonaldTrump is a loser. Count all his failed businesses. See how he cheated people w/ scams like Trump U.
See how @realDonaldTrump kept his father’s empire afloat using strategic corporate bankruptcies to skip out on debt.
See how @realDonaldTrump kept his father’s empire afloat using strategic corporate bankruptcies to skip out on debt.
.@RealDonaldTrump knows he’s a loser. His insecurities are on parade: petty bullying, attacks on women, cheap racism, flagrant narcissism.
But just because @realDonaldTrump is a loser everywhere else doesn’t mean he’ll lose this election.
.@RealDonaldTrump stands ready to tear apart an America that was built on values like decency, community, and concern for our neighbors.
Many of history’s worst authoritarians started out as losers – and @realDonaldTrump is a serious threat.
The way I see it, it’s our job to make sure @realDonaldTrump ends this campaign every bit the loser that he started it.

Warren has taken on an increasingly prominent role as an attack dog against Trump, stoking speculation that likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton will tap the senator to serve as her running mate.

Bring them on, Trump said during his Friday night tweetstorm, hitting Warren on her disputed claims of Native American ancestry.

"I don't think he likes that." Asked why she thought Trump responded so viscerally, Warren said he fears being held accountable.

"I don't know if it's that Donald Trump is not used to people who stand up and challenge him, and I don't mean on silly stuff, or on personal stuff. This is really about the issues he's put on the table and talking about him, Donald Trump," she said, accusing him of "defrauding students" through the for-profit Trump University and "cheating others" by declaring bankruptcy.

"I don't think that's where Donald Trump wants to be, the idea that he has to be held accountable, I don't think he likes that," Warren continued. "I think he's actually a lot weaker than he wants to admit."
