    Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren blasted Republican front-runner Donald Trump after his victory Tuesday in Indiana, saying the billionaire businessman has more support from the KKK than the GOP.

    "There's more enthusiasm for @realDonaldTrump among leaders of the KKK than leaders of the party he now controls," Warren, a Democrat, tweeted after Trump was declared the winner of Indiana's primary and rival Ted Cruz ended his bid for the White House.

    Warren criticized Trump for "[building] his campaign on racism, sexism, and xenophobia."

    She also called him out for "cheerleading illegal torture" and fostering warm relations with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

    In her final thought, Warren vowed to fight "to make sure Trump's toxic stew of hatred & insecurity never reaches the White House."

    The senator has yet to endorse a candidate, but her name has been floated as a possible vice presidential pick for both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

    Trump has not publicly responded to Warren's criticism.
