Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) said Sunday that President Trump — who said during a rally last week that he'd like to test Warren to prove her Native American heritage, but would "have to do it gently because we're in the #MeToo generation," — "is a bully," both to her and to "women all across this country.”

"Donald Trump is a bully, and he tries to bully me in order to shut me up. And he's also trying to bully women all across this country. When he talks about 'Me Too' it isn't just me Donald Trump's going after; it's every woman who speaks up. And he thinks we should sit down and shut up? It's just not going to happen."
