During a meeting with Democrat and Republican Senators last Thursday, Politico reports President Trump referred to Elizabeth Warren repeatedly as "Pocahontas."
During the meeting, Trump also reacted to Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren being silenced on the Senate floor while trying to read a 1986 letter by Coretta Scott King and in objection to Alabama Sen. Jeff Sessions before he was confirmed as attorney general. According to participants in Thursday's meeting, Trump referred to Warren several times as "Pocahontas," the moniker he gave her during his campaign, and told the Democrats he was glad Warren is becoming the face of "your party."
Senator Al Franken responded to the report by saying he would have interrupted Trump to say he's being "racist."
"Mr. President, with all due respect, that's racist," he told Jake Tapper he would have said.
"Don't — please stop doing that. I'm on Indian Affairs. This is completely unacceptable. You really should stop doing this. It doesn't serve anybody," Franken said.
