Republicans downplayed Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s appeal after she drew a crowd of 12,000 supporters last week in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Some Democrats compared the number of Warren’s attendees to Trump rallies, but Trump criticized the media coverage of her crowd size and claimed his crowds are “far bigger.”

“They do stories so big on Elizabeth ‘Pocahontas’ Warren’s crowd sizes, adding many more people than are actually there, and yet my crowds, which are far bigger, get no coverage at all. Fake News!” the president tweeted.

Warren reportedly also drew 15,000 attendees at a rally in Seattle, but Republicans say Trump draws bigger crowds with newer voters.
