Q: She said that it was a racial slur. "Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. But you know what, I like you".

Trump has repeatedly mocked Warren for claims she has made about being part Native American.

Eric Trump tweeted on Tuesday what appeared to be a comparison of President Trump calling Sen.

Shortly after Trump's remarks, Warren said that the United States President could not hold a ceremony without making a racial slur. "Look, I can explain it to them, but it's real time-consuming, and I have a lot of other stuff to do", she said. This is a person, a young lady and Native American woman, that played a critical role in the life of this nation.

However he revived the nickname during a speech he gave at the White House honouring those Navajo veterans who'd served as code talkers in the military.

Begaye also said that Trump's language "kind of ruined the whole ceremony" but that Native Americans are "still holding our heads high" and will "continue to outlive any kind of racial remarks".

Does vodka actually make you more aggressive?
The researches noted that the emotions were more likely to be felt by dependent drinkers versus casual drinkers. Men in particular were most likely to report feeling of aggression after consuming spirits .

"Every time that Donald Trump calls me "Pocahontas"-and the media goes insane over it-he's happy that people are not focused on how he's trying to cut taxes for billionaires and giant corporations", the senator added in the email".

At Monday's White House press briefing, Sarah Sanders was asked about the comments and if she thought they were offensive. "What Trump displayed today was an embarrassment to our values and a disgraceful insult to the heroes of our history".

He started accusing Warren of lying about her heritage and called her "Pocahontas" at a campaign rally in June, 2016, according to the Washington Post, when Warren was campaigning in support of Hilary Clinton.

"It is 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 she believed her family had Cherokee ancestors, though critics have argued that she sought to gain an unfair advantage by claiming Native American roots.
