President Trump on Thursday again called Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas,” while slamming his potential Democratic opponents for the 2020 presidential race.
He and his supporters have taken to calling her that name due to their skepticism that she, as claimed, has Native American ancestry.
“Let’s say I’m debating Pocahontas, right? I promise you I’ll do this,” Trump said at a campaign-style rally in Montana. “I will take, you know, those little kits they sell on television for $2…and in the middle of the debate…we will take that little kit, but we have to do it gently because we’re in the #MeToo generation…we will slowly toss it hoping it doesn’t hit her…and we will say, ‘I will give you a million dollars to your favorite charity paid for by Trump, if you take the test and it shows you’re an Indian.’”

Trump has referred to Warren as “Pocahontas” on multiple occasions in the past.
“Pocahontas just stated that the Democrats, lead [sic] by the legendary Crooked Hillary Clinton, rigged the Primaries! Lets go FBI & Justice Dept,” the president said in a tweet on November 3.
Warren responded to that post during an appearance on CBS’ ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.’
“Donald Trump thinks if he’s going to start every one of these tweets to me with some kind of racist slur here that he’s going to shut me up,” she said. “It didn’t work in the past, it’s not going to work in the future.”
