    President Donald Trump lashed out at Sen. Elizabeth Warren over her criticism of his health care bill, calling her a "hopeless case'" and "highly overrated voice."

    Trump said during an interview on "Fox & Friends" that aired Sunday that Warren has a lot of "hatred" and "anger" that came out when Warren campaigned for Hillary Clinton, hurting the candidate's chances of winning the election.

    He noted that he calls her "Pocahontas, and that's an insult to Pocahontas." Trump has used the term several times to denigrate Warren by referencing claims she has made about being part Native American.

    Native American leaders have called Trump's attacks on Warren offensive.

    Warren, a leading liberal and defender of the Affordable Care Act, has opposed efforts to pass a bill to replace the law. 

    The Democrat reiterated her opposition in a statement to The Associated Press on Sunday, saying the health care bill being pushed by Senate Republicans is a "monstrosity" and Trump should "junk it and start over."

    Warren says the bill will kick "millions off health insurance."
