Elizabeth Warren Fundraises Off Donald Trump's 'Pocahontas' Insult

Sen. Elizabeth Warren

"The President certainly (has) an extreme amount of value and respect for these individuals, which is why he spent time. honoring them today", she continued.

"Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago", he added.

"I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people".

"You might have heard that Donald Trump likes to call me 'Pocahontas.' He does it on Twitter, at rallies, and even in official White House meetings", Warren wrote her supporters in a Monday fundraising email.

Shortly after Trump's remarks, Warren said that the United States President could not hold a ceremony without making a racial slur.

She told the Associated Press in 2012 that her parents told her (and her siblings) that they had Native American heritage.

One voice that has been missing in the debate has been that of the code talkers honored in the ceremony.

Navajo Nation Council delegate Amber Kanazbah Crotty cited the event as the "latest example of systemic, deep-seated ignorance" about Native Americans. "You are special people".

Begaye said Trump's remark was "uncalled for".

But White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders defended the president's comments after being grilled by reporters over why the president felt the need to say something "offensive" during the press briefing on Monday.

He started accusing Warren of lying about her heritage and called her "Pocahontas" at a campaign rally in June, 2016, according to the Washington Post, when Warren was campaigning in support of Hilary Clinton. And to put in a slur that has become racial - Pocahontas - didn't belong there.

Trump has often used the moniker to describe Warren, who has spoken about her mother's Native American ancestry. Warren warned Friday, June 16, that President Donald Trump and his Republican allies are preparing to deliver “a knockout blow” to the nation's middle-class. He should talk to his embarrassment of an ambassador to New Zealand, Scott Brown, about how continually throwing out a racist nickname for Warren worked out for him when he ran against her for the Senate.
