Pocahontas was a Powhatan Native American woman, born around 1595, known for her involvement with English colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia.

"They call her [Elizabeth Warren] 'Pocahontas, '" he said. "Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago".

"I think what most people find offensive is Senator Warren lying about heritage to advance her career", Sanders said.

Warren, from MA, has a long record of sparring with Trump and later said that it was "deeply unfortunate" that the "president of the United States can not even make it through a ceremony honouring these heroes without having to throw out a racial slur".

The statement goes on to encourage the focus to remain on the Code Talkers and their contributions to defending the United States. "He did this because he thinks that he can bully me and shut me up. The campaign email, which included a donate button, also said that the comments distract from President Trump's tax plan and its breaks for billionaires and giant corporations". "It is not going to work in the future".

Navajo Nation Council delegate Amber Kanazbah Crotty cited the event as the "latest example of systemic, deep-seated ignorance" about Native Americans. "The prejudice that Native American people face is an unfortunate historical legacy", Begaye said.
