Watch: Elizabeth Warren Isn't Holding Back About the Threat Donald Trump Poses to the Public

Following Trump's Indiana primary victory, Senator Elizabeth Warren slammed him on Twitter, and the GOP nominee has since dismissed her as a joke.

Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) did not mince words on Tuesday when responding to Donald Trump's victory in the Indiana primary. While the Massachusetts senator has often lashed out at Republicans on the social network, Warren believed that Trump's new status as the "presumptive nominee" called for a new roast.

Donald Trump took a few days to respond:

“[Warren] has had a big, failed record as a senator, and all of a sudden about a week ago she started tweeting violently about me,” Trump told Fox’s Bill O’Reilly on Fox News a week after being declared the "presumptive nominee."

Trump insists that the popular senator is “not highly respected" despite other Democrats vying for her endorsement and being called "the biggest power player in progressive politics."

But it's not just his offensive language that troubles the Massachusetts senator. Warren believes that under a Trump presidency, “It will be more of a government that works for a thin slice at the top."

“Increasingly, we live in a world where the economy works for a narrower and narrower slice of America," she told Mic.com in a video Wednesday, adding, "This is our chance, right here in 2016, to change that.”
