    U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren says there's a difference between fighting hard for a principle and encouraging people to violence — but she declined to say if President Donald Trump has crossed that line.

    The Massachusetts Democrat made the comments Thursday in an interview with The Associated Press as the mail-bomb scare widened.

    Warren said the bombs are a reminder that some individuals have stepped over the line. She said they are responsible for their actions, but added that it's important no one incite anyone to violence.

    Warren is a frequent target of Trump who has repeatedly mocked her by calling her "Pocahontas," a reference to Warren's claims of Native American heritage. Warren has released DNA test results that provide some evidence of a Native American in her lineage.

"I don't want you to think I am picking on you because we are part of the master race. You have a gap in your teeth. We are part of the master race, don't you forget that," Klemp said.
