Many Dems have backed Warren since she was silenced. So what Trump is saying is pretty accurate. Except for maybe the Pocahontas bit…
Donald Trump referred to Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas again as he attacked her ancestry during a private meeting with senators, sources said Saturday.
The president, who previously used the insult on the campaign trail, told Democrat lawmakers Thursday: ‘Pocahontas is now the face of your party,’ CNN reported. He then claimed that the only reason she said she had Native American origins was due to her ‘high cheekbones’, a source told the network.
Trump‘s comment came the day after GOP senators silenced Warren on the Senate floor by invoking a little-used rule while she spoke out against Jeff Sessions during his confirmation hearing to become attorney general.
The rebuke has prompted a wave of support for Waren among outraged Democrats.
The president used the ‘Pocahontas’ insult several times during the closed-door meeting with senators, making it ‘equal parts bizarre and completely awkward’, a source told CNN.
His renewed use of the insult came as Trump reflected on the current state of the Democratic Party.
The mogul has previously referred to Warren as Pocahontas and attacked her over her heritage repeatedly.
