The White House issued attacks from its official Twitter account on Monday against two Democratic senators, Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris, criticizing women regarded as potential challengers to President Donald Trump in 2020 for their positions on immigration.

In posts about an hour apart, the @WhiteHouse account first accused Warren of “supporting criminals moving weapons, drugs and victims across our nation’s borders” and said that Harris is “supporting the animals of MS-13.”
