“Trump calls Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas” during tribute to Navajo WWII veterans”

SALON

“At a White House ceremony honoring Navajo tribe members who used their native language to help the United States during World War II, President Donald Trump couldn’t resist taking a potshot at Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

“You were here long before any of us were here,” Trump said, as the wizened veterans stood before him. “Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas.”

The men seemed not to get Trump’s reference to allegations from Republicans that Warren had claimed to be of Native American descent to qualify for affirmative action policies. His quip did not elicit a response, according to footage of the event.”
