Why is Trump calling Elizabeth Warren Pocahontas?

Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas.' in reference to his nickname for Sen.

Putting a hand on the shoulder of one of the two veterans, he said: "But you know what, I like you because you are special".

The Navajo Code Talkers are credited with creating a complex code utilizing their indigenous language to help the United States win World War II.

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren is leveraging President Donald Trump's insults against her heritage into a fundraising campaign. "I like you. Because you are special".

Referring to the concept of Trump's words being a "racial slur", Sanders said: "I think that's a ridiculous response". She needs to work harder on her husband's penchant for name calling including "dummy", "clown", "low-class slob", "loser", "liar", "crooked Hillary", "crazy Bernie", "little Marco", "Pocahontas", and many more disparaging names for his critics.

Naturally, the majority of the questions during Monday's White House Press briefing were about Trump's use of "Pocahantas", instead of tax reform or other pressing issues. "This is a young lady, a Native American woman that played a critical role in the life of this nation, and to use that person in that way is unnecessary and is being culturally insensitive".

Native Americans observers were quick to note that Monday's ceremony took place beneath a portrait of Andrew Jackson, the seventh US president and architect of the policy that forcibly drove thousands of Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek and Seminole tribe members from their homes to the West.

Q: At the event that the president just did with the Navajo code talkers, he referred to Pocahontas being in the Senate. When anchor Alisyn Camerota asked whether it amounted to an ethnic slur, he said yes.

"This was supposed to be an event to honour heroes, people who put it all on the line for our country", she said.

"I think what most people find offensive is Senator Warren lying about her heritage to advance her career."
