Trump makes 'Pocahontas' slur at Native American ceremony

Native American Leader Slams Trump For 'Culturally Insensitive' Pocahontas Remark

Trump delights in rolling out this nickname for her at every opportunity.

He then went on to address the Navajos and said: "But you know what, I like you". When anchor Alisyn Camerota asked whether it amounted to an ethnic slur, he said yes.

Warren, who is running for reelection in 2018, sent an email to supporters on Monday night saying, "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 lying about her heritage to advance her career", she said.

During the event, President Trump referred to Sen.

McCain, the chairman for the Senate Committee on Armed Services and a Vietnam war veteran, has previously clashed with the president on issues including Trump's attempted ban of transgender troops from the military.

Trump held the ceremony hosting the Navajo code talkers in the Oval Office, where a large portrait of Jackson was hung, who in 1830, signed the Indian Removal Act, which led to the forced removal, relocation and deaths of thousands of Native Americans.

"Politicizing these genuine American heroes is an insult to their sacrifice".

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders doubled down on that sentiment at Monday's briefing.

The Hill notes that none of the code talkers responded to his remarks and because Trump wasn't finished he referred to White House chief of staff John Kelly as simply "chief" because you, Native Americans were in attendance.and.fuck this guy.

Trump said: "We have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago".

Pocahontas was a Powhatan Native American woman, born around 1595, known for her involvement with English colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia.

"You're very, very special people".

The White House has jumped in to defend US President Donald Trump over comments denigrating a Democrat Senator as "Pocahontas". "I like you. Because you are special".
