President Donald Trump revived his derogatory nickname for Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren Monday, referring to her as “Pocahontas” during an event honoring Native American veterans at the White House.
Trump told the veterans “you were here long before any of us were here. Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas.”
After making the crack, Trump turned to one of the Navajo code talkers and said, “But you know what? I like you. Because you are special. You are special people, you are really incredible people.

Senator Warren was immediately asked about the remarks by the press while on Capitol Hill today and responded by saying that:
“This was supposed to be an event to honor heroes, people who put it all on the line for our country, and people who because of their incredible work, saved countless lives…It is deeply unfortunate that the President of the United States cannot even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without having to throw out a racial slur.”
Donald Trump does this over and over thinking somehow he’s going to shut me up with it. It didn’t work in the past and it’s not going to work in the future.
