Trump used racist smear of Elizabeth Warren during meeting with senators
There is a bigot in the Oval Office, and his name is Donald John Trump.
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 Elizabeth Warren, like millions of Americans, had been told by her family that her lineage is in part Native American.
