Trump just horrified the nation with a Native American genocide joke about Warren’s 2020 run

It’s bad enough that he couldn’t just keep his mouth shut, but President Trump stuck his own foot squarely down his racist throat with a despicable attack on Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) today after she held a rally to launch her campaign for the Democratic nomination for president in 2020.


The world recoiled in horror as Trump repeated his racist Pocahontas reference that he seems to think is a joke but is far more offensive than Senator Warren’s acknowledgment of her trace ancestry of Native American heritage as proven by genetic testing.

It was his reference to seeing Warren “on the campaign TRAIL” that caused an eruption of outrage on Twitter as readers took his capitalization of the word as a reference to the “Trail of Tears” — the forced relocations of Native Americans from the Southeastern United States to designated “Indian Territory” west of the Mississippi — an event now universally recognized as an act of genocide on the native peoples of this continent.

Twitter responses aside, Trump will hopefully face his own trail of tears when his karma catches up with him, preferably through the revelations contained in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s report when it’s finally finished. His belief that he will still be in a position to run against a Democratic candidate in 2020 rather than rotting in prison will be proven to be the biggest of his many delusions if justice is ever truly served.
