Trump Rallies in Ohio: Dem Gov Candidate 'Groomed By Pocahontas' Warren
President Trump blasted Ohio's Democratic gubernatorial candidate Friday at a rally in Columbus, saying that he was "groomed" by Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
Trump endorsed Republican hopeful, Rep. Jim Renacci, and said Democratic opponent Richard Cordray will "destroy [the] state."
"He was groomed by Pocahontas," Trump said of Cordray, while referencing his popular nickname for Warren -- whose claims of Native American ancestry have been challenged by the president and others.
Trump reminded the crowd that he fired Cordray from his post as the head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Cordray was replaced by White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney.
Warren initially proposed the CFPB when she was a Harvard professor, and was later appointed by President Obama in 2010 to oversee its founding. The agency was formally established as part of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform bill.
Trump said Cordray and the CFPB was "putting [firms] out of business."
Trump added that he "doesn't get" how Ohio elected Sen. Sherrod Brown (D), and pressed the crowd to instead vote for former state Attorney General Mike DeWine (R) instead.
He said Brown "voted for the liberal Obama judges who want to take away your Second Amendment" and opposed the tax cuts.

Later in the speech, Trump brought up his own home-state politicians, saying that Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) "used to love me" and that Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-N.Y.) endangered his political future by declaring that America "was never great."
"I knew Schumer when he was, like, somebody you could talk to [but now] he's so far left," Trump remarked.
