    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.

    A redacted, declassified memo released by Democrats on the House intelligence committee Saturday aims to counter a narrative that Republicans on the committee have pushed for months — that the FBI and Justice Department conspired against President Donald Trump during his presidential campaign, abusing a secret surveillance process to spy on one of his operatives in its Russia investigation.

    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."
