Trump again jabs Warren with ‘Pocahontas’ reference

President Trump on Saturday again used the “Pocahontas” slur to describe Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren.

Speaking at a GOP convention in Nevada, he also went after the Democratic lawmaker, Rep. Jacky Rosen, looking to unseat Republican Senator Dean Heller.

“Wacky Jacky, that’s what you want for your senator?” Trump said. “She wants to raise taxes and I think somebody said she’s in Nevada right now, campaigning with Pocahontas.”

“She’s campaigning with Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to, affectionately of course, as Pocahontas,” Trump added. “They wanted me to apologize. I did, though, I did apologize to Pocahontas. To the memory of Pocahontas, I apologized.”

Trump has referred to Warren as “Pocahontas” on multiple occasions in the past.

“Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead [sic] by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries! Lets go FBI & Justice Dept,” the president said in a tweet on November 3.

Warren responded to that post during an appearance on CBS’ ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.’

“Donald Trump thinks if he’s going to start every one of these tweets to me with some kind of racist slur here that he’s going to shut me up,” she said. “It didn’t work in the past, it’s not going to work in the future.”
