Trump was recognizing Native American Code Talkers who served during World War II when he made the remark about Warren.

For nearly two years Donald Trump has been referring to Democratic U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas", meant to be a slur because she claims her ancestors include Cherokee and Delaware Indians.

"I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people".

"You were here long before any of us were here", Trump said. "They call her Pocahontas".

Pocahontas is the name of a Native American who was the daughter of Chief Powhatan, and was notorious for her role in the English settling in Virginia.

For a while now, President Donald Trump has hit Sen.

While placing a hand on the shoulder of one of the honorees, Trump told the man: "But you know what? I like you because you are very special". However, when asked about it, Warren was unable to back up the claims. He also took the solemn occasion to acknowledge the history of the native people in America while also calling out Sen. "It is deeply unfortunate that the president of the united states can not even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without having to throw out a racial slur".

On June 27, 2016, he tweeted: "Crooked Hillary is wheeling out one of the least productive senators in the U.S. Senate, goofy Elizabeth Warren, who lied on heritage". "Pocahontas", during an event honoring Native Americans Monday at the White House. On Saturday, he noted on Twitter that he was going to golf - quickly - with professional golfers Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson.
