Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a former Democratic presidential candidate, and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) ― Beresford wrote, "No it couldn't".

New Zealand's foreign ministry censured its second-ranking envoy to the United States on Wednesday after she tweeted that the Democratic Party in America should get its act together "or we will all die".

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade has confirmed it is taking "appropriate action" against Caroline Beresford, New Zealand's deputy head of mission to the United States, following her now-deleted posts on Twitter. This joint ticket, she said, could "win big" in 2020. "Please get your (expletive deleted) together or we will all die". That was apparently in response to the suggestion that two senators, Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Elizabeth Warren of MA, could form a presidential ticket for the 2020 election to defeat President Trump.

New Zealand's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade says that it may take "appropriate action" against New Zealand diplomat Caroline Beresford for her tweet criticising President Donald Trump.

"An MFAT spokeswoman said the ministry was aware of Beresford's comments and "[did] not in any way endorse the content or tone of the tweets, which we note have now been deleted".

Beresford later deleted the tweets and locked her account, making it inaccessible to people who do not already follow her on Twitter. In a story told on a New York Times podcast, lobbyist Robert Stryk said he helped put the two leaders in touch after Beresford's Labrador approached him at a Four Seasons hotel in Washington.
