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

He frequently called her that throughout his presidential campaign and claimed that she was lying about her genealogy, saying it was "racist" and that she should be fact-checked.

"Although, we have a representative in Congress who has been here a long time - longer than you".

Trump has repeatedly mocked Warren over her claim of Cherokee ancestry by referring to her as Pocahontas, who was the daughter of a powerful Native American leader in the 17th century colonial Virginia, whose legacy was romantisiced in the Disney movie of the same name.

President Donald Trump referred to Massachusetts Sen. However, Navajo Nation president Russell Begaye later sent out a statement indicating that he found Trump's quip to be insensitive and bigoted while also noting that the code talkers shouldn't be placed in the middle of his political scraps.

Navajo Nation Council delegate Amber Kanazbah Crotty cited the event as the "latest example of systemic, deep-seated ignorance" about Native Americans. But you don't make "Pocahontas" jokes when you are honoring "three Navajos who helped the U.S. Marine Corps develop a secret code during the Second World War" The Hill reports.

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

A Brawl Breaks Out During A Black Friday Event
No one was arrested in the violence, Lieutenant Keith Czeskleba said a statement released at around 9:45 a.m. on Friday. Police said two men were sitting inside a auto when one of them discharged the gun while trying to holster the weapon.

"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.

"Pocahontas is a real person", Begaye continued. "What Trump displayed today was an embarrassment to our values and a disgraceful insult to the heroes of our history".

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. Warren was very offensive when she lied about something specifically to advance her career.

HUCKABEE SANDERS: I think that is a ridiculous response.

"President Trump couldn't even make it through a ceremony to honor these men without throwing in a racial slur", Warren told Anderson Cooper.
