Trump attacks a senator calling her
Donald Trump invited a group of American Indians to the White House this Monday. Three of them were veterans of the Second World War. One was 97 years old. It was a solemn act. After the intervention of the leader of the natives, the president took the floor and, within seconds, could not avoid making a mention of "Pocahontas", an iconic figure among the American Indians but that the Republican used to insult the Democratic senator Elizabeth Warren. "You are very special people, you were here before all of us, although we have a representative in Congress who say it takes a long time here ... more than you ... they call it Pocahontas!" said Trump, with a faint smile, referring to Warren. The natives, without reaction, did not seem to understand the meaning of his words. This is not the first time the president has referred to the Democrat this way. Within minutes, the senator lamented on television the president's remarks: "It is a pity that the President of the United States cannot complete a ceremony by honoring heroes without having to make a racist comment." He thinks he's going to shut me up. "He has no effect and will not do so in the future." At the White House Daily press conference, spokesman Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended Trump's words and said they were not a racist slur. In the past, the National Congress of American Indians has condemned the use of the president of the word "Pocahontas" to mock Warren, as it is a relevant character in the ancient history of the country. Warren has claimed to be a descendant of natives, something that many conservatives have criticized as a strategy to seduce the tribes ' vote in their political career. Trump has accused him of lying about his roots. In the middle of the campaign, the then Republican candidate tweeteded against the senator and called him "Pocahontas" for the first time. Earlier this month, the President relapsed. The president concluded the day he started with a bizarre tweet in which he proposed a contest between the media to reward the "most false."
