Trump Calls Elizabeth Warren ‘Pocahontas’ at White House Event Honoring Native American Code Talkers

At a White House event honoring the last surviving Native American code talkers, President Donald Trump revived his controversial nickname for Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

“You were here long before any of us were here,” Trump told the three Native American code talkers, each roughly 90-years of age, to his right. “Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas. But you know what, I like you. Because you are special. You are special people. You are really incredible people.”

Trump praised the code talkers “bravery” and said “from the heart, from the absolute heart, we appreciate what you’ve done.” The code talkers were Native Americans who served in the military to help with communications in both World Wars.

Trump has blasted Warren, elected to the Senate in 2013, as “Pocahontas” for more than a year. The attack is based off one launched by former GOP Sen. Scott Brown, now Trump’s ambassador to New Zealand, who was Warren’s opponent during her 2012 Senate bid. Brown accused her at the time of using her Native American ancestry to her advantage after reports surfaced that she listed herself as a minority in a years-old directory of law professors.

One of the Native Americans, Peter MacDonald, who had served in the Marines during World War II, had delivered a speech on their service prior to Trump’s comment and later praised Trump for having military leaders serve in important administration roles.

Trump praised the speech and said he did not need to read his speech since the preceding speech was so good.
