Sen. Elizabeth Warren Fundraises off of Trump's 'Pocahontas' Jab

Sen. Warren

Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) during a White House event honoring World War II Navajo code talkers.

It wasn't the first time Trump has referred to the first female MA senator as "Pocahontas".

"You were here long before any of us were here", said Trump, addressing the veterans from a podium placed in front of a portrait of former USA president Andrew Jackson.

"President Trump couldn't even make it through a ceremony to honor these men without throwing in a racial slur", Warren told Anderson Cooper. "And from the heart, from the absolute heart, we appreciate what you've done, how you've done it, the bravery that you displayed, and the love that you have for your country". "I like you, because you are special".

After stating that the ceremony was meant to highlight the accomplishments and heroism of the code talkers, Begaye criticized the president for undermining the whole thing. He says the nation owes a debt of gratitude to the Navajo Code Talkers for helping secure victory over tyranny and oppression during World War II. "I think what most people find offensive is Sen". Navajo Nation Council Delegate Amber Kanazbah Crotty on Monday called Trump's comment "deeply offensive and risky". And to put in a slur that has become racial - Pocahontas - didn't belong there.

HUCKABEE SANDERS: I think that is a ridiculous response.

John Norwood, general secretary of the Alliance of Colonial Era Tribes, told NBC News that he really wishes the president would "stop using our historical people of significance as a racial slur against one of his opponents". "Senator Warren was offensive when she lied about something to advance her career".

"Donald Trump does this over and over thinking somehow he is gonna shut me up with this", Warren said. Begaye discussed some of the history of Jackson before stating that "we survived him" and Native Americans will "survive every president from here on into the future".

In 2012, she was under scrutiny for her alleged Native American heritage as she listed herself as a minority in the directory of law professors, the Boston Globe reports.
