Donald Trump blasted Sen. Elizabeth Warren Monday, calling her a “sellout” and a “turncoat” in the Democratic Party for her newfound support of Hillary Clinton.

Reacting to Warren’s Monday appearance with Clinton in Cincinnati, Ohio, Trump tweeted, “Crooked Hillary is wheeling out one of the least productive senators in the U.S. Senate, goofy Elizabeth Warren, who lied on heritage.” (RELATED: Trump Regrets Calling Elizabeth Warren ‘Pocahontas’)

“As Clinton tries to salvage support among the Bernie Sanders wing of the Democrat Party, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has become a turncoat for the causes she supposedly supports,” The Trump campaign wrote in a statement. “While Warren claims that Wall Street businesses have too much influence in D.C., by paying ‘barely disguised bribes,’ through campaign contributions. The Clinton campaign has accepted over $41 million this cycle from Wall Street interests.” (RELATED: Trump Claims Elizabeth Warren Is ‘As Native American As I Am’ [VIDEO])

“Warren is also campaigning for the author of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a deal she has routinely slammed. This is a trade deal that Clinton has expressed support for in over 45 public speeches,” the Trump campaign wrote.

“Warren’s campaigning for Clinton stands in stark contrast to the liberal ideals she once practiced. This sad attempt at pandering to the Sanders wing is another example of a typical political calculation by D.C. insiders. Mr. Trump has been against TPP from the start of his campaign because he understands how detrimental it would be to American workers. He will continue to fight for the American people and serve them over the special interests in Washington, D.C.”
