President Donald Trump warned Ohio voters not to vote for Democrat candidate for Governor Richard Cordray, calling him a “disaster.”

“This guy Cordray is a bad guy, not a good person, he’s hurt a lot of people,” Trump said. “What he has done to people is a disgrace.”

Trump told the crowd that Cordray was a “handpicked disciple” of leftist Democrat Sen. Elizabeth Warren who should not be trusted with power.

“We actually essentially fired him, so I mean I know all about him,” he said, repeating his popular “You’re Fired” catchphrase from his TV show, The Apprentice.

Cordray resigned from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in November 2017 after President Trump named Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney the director of the agency.

Warren was furious after Mulvaney was appointed, as she was instrumental in creating the agency after the 2008 financial crash.

Warren campaigned for Cordray on Thursday, calling him the “nerd we need” as governor of Ohio.

Trump mocked Warren with the nickname “Pocahontas,” although he admitted that it was difficult to call her that after the Democrat presidential hopeful released a DNA test that showed she had very little Native American heritage.

“That name is too good to give up,” he said.
