Warren responded on MSNBC by saying she "won't be silenced" with "racial slurs".

"Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago", he added. "I like you, because you are special".

The President, standing beside three Najavo code talkers and a portrait of former president Andrew Jackson, made the comment in reference to Warren's heritage, which the Democrat Senator on numerous occasions has said has Native American roots.

President Trump's use of the name "Pocahontas" to refer to Massachusetts Sen. Warren called Trump's remarks "the very worst of gutter politics" and a blatant ploy to keep the American people "distracted".

The email comes following the president's offhand remarks at a White House event honoring Navajo code talkers.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) is fundraising off of President Donald Trump calling her "Pocahontas" during an event honoring World War II Navajo Code Talkers on Monday.

Critics pointed out Mr Trump's outburst was even more egregious as it was made in front of a portrait of Andrew Jackson, the seventh United States president who forced hundreds of thousands of indigenous Americans from their land in the 1830s.

"Pocahontas is a real person", Begaye continued. "I like you - you are special people".

And as if all this weren't insult enough, Oglala Lakota journalist and Native Sun News Today publisher Tim Giago cited Trump's tone of voice. Warren was very offensive when she lied about something specifically to advance her career.

"It is deeply unfortunate that the president of the United States can't even make it through a ceremony honouring these heroes without throwing out a racial slur".

Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye explained to CNN that the way the term was used would be characterized as an ethnic slur, and he said it "doesn't belong in the room when our war heroes are being honored".
