Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., is featuring President Trump’s “Pocahontas” dig in a new fundraising email to supporters.
The senator has accused Trump of attacking her with a “racist slur” during a ceremony Monday at the White House honoring World War II Navajo code talkers.
“Trump stood right next to those Native American war heroes and came after me with another racist slur,” she states in the email dispatch.
During the ceremony, Trump told the code talkers, now in their 90s: “You’re very, very special people. 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. But you know what? I like you. Because you are special.”
Trump frequently referred to Warren during the 2016 presidential campaign as “Fauxcahontas,” playing on the senator’s unsubstantiated claim that she might be 1/32 Cherokee. (Read more from “Elizabeth Warren Uses Trump ‘Racial Slur’ to Solicit Cash” HERE)
