Trump Jokes About Serving 14 More Years In Bizarre Attack On 'nervous, Skinny' Elizabeth Warren

Donald Trump has launched a bizarre attack against Democratic presidential contenders in a series of tweets in which he joked about serving another 14 years in the White House.

"Could you imagine having Sleepy Joe Biden, or @AlfredENeuman99 or a very nervous and skinny version of Pocahontas (1000/24th), as your President, rather than what you have now, so great looking and smart, a true Stable Genius!" Mr Trump wrote. 

"Sorry to say that even Social Media would be driven out of business along with, and finally, the Fake News Media!"

The US president included the Twitter handle @AlfredENeuman99 in reference to South Bends mayor Pete Buttigieg, who Mr Trump has claimed looks like Alfred E Neumen, a caricature from US humour magazine Mad. The handle actually belongs to a retired teacher from Illinois 

"Pocahontas" is a racially charged reference to Elizabeth Warren, who has claimed Cherokee ancestry. The inclusion of "1000/24th" appears to be a bungled allusion to the fact a DNA test showed Ms Warren was at best only 1/64th Native American.
