The White House said yesterday that President Donald Trump wasn't making a racial slur when he referred to Senator Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahantas" while speaking with Navajo military veterans who served as code-talkers in World War Two.

Warren warned Friday, June 16, that President Donald Trump and his Republican allies are preparing to deliver “a knockout blow” to the nation's middle-class. She says: "He's wrong". What a shame for our country!

Warren herself additionally responded to Trump's dig, telling MSNBC, "It was deeply unfortunate that the President of the United States can not even make it through a ceremony honoring these heroes without throwing out a racial slur".

Warren said Tuesday that all Trump "had to do was make it through the ceremony".

Trump, while addressing one member of the Navajo group, said: "I just want to thank you because you are very, very special people". "But you know what, I like you because you are special".

Trump held the ceremony hosting the Navajo code talkers in the Oval Office, where a large portrait of Jackson was hung, who in 1830, signed the Indian Removal Act, which led to the forced removal, relocation and deaths of thousands of Native Americans. "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".

Q: She said that it was a racial slur.

HUCKABEE SANDERS: I think that is a ridiculous response. Donald Trump does this over and over thinking somehow he is going to shut me up with it. "It hadn't worked in the past, it is not gonna work in the future". Scott Brown (R), the Boston Herald found that she was listed as a "minority law teacher" in law school directories from the Association of American Law Schools from 1986 to 1995.

The National Congress of American Indians "cannot and will not stand silent when our Native ancestors, cultures and histories are used in a derogatory manner for political gain", said its executive director, Jacqueline Pata.
