Trump Says Referring To Sen. Elizabeth Warren As ‘Pocahontas’ Is ‘An Insult To Pocahontas’

President Trump blasted his long-time critic, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren in a Fox News interview.

President Trump has once again blasted his long-time critic, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, by referring to her as “Pocahontas.”
He made the comment on “Fox and Friends” Sunday while blaming the Democrats for trying to obstruct his administration’s push to overhaul health care. 
When asked about Warren’s claim that people would die as a result of the proposal, the president said, “Well, I actually think she’s a hopeless case. I call her Pocahontas. And that’s an insult to Pocahontas. I actually think that she is just somebody that’s got a lot of hatred, a lot of anger.” 
Trump began referring to the senator with that nickname during the campaign; last June, he tweeted, "Pocahontas is at it again! Goofy Elizabeth Warren, one of the least productive U.S. Senators, has a nasty mouth. Hope she is V.P. choice."
The following month, he tweeted, “Pocahontas wanted V.P. slot so badly but wasn't chosen because she has done nothing in the Senate. Also, Crooked Hillary hates her!” 
Warren has claimed Native American heritage in the past based on family member accounts.
