NEW YORK, N.Y. (CBSMiami/AP) — Donald Trump is railing against Sen. Elizabeth Warren, calling the Massachusetts Democrat “goofy” as rumors abound linking her to Hillary Clinton’s candidacy for president.

Trump told supporters in Eugene, Oregon on Friday evening that his likely rival has “got this goofy friend named Elizabeth Warren.”

Trump called Warren a “goofus” and a “basket case,” and said “she’s done nothing in the United States Senate.”

Warren had earlier put out a series of tweets aimed at Trump:

Trump’s Twitter account responded with: “Goofy Elizabeth Warren, Hillary Clinton’s flunky, has a career that is totally based on a lie. She is not Native American.”

And from there, the back-and-forth bitter Twitter battle erupted with more than a dozen posts between the two.
