President Trump speaks at an event at the White House honoring Navajo code talkers

Elizabeth Warren as "Pocahontas" during a White House event Monday honoring Native American code talkers who served in World War II.

The reaction to President Donald Trump's calling Senator Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas" in front of Navajo military veterans has been swift and unforgiving.

She told the Associated Press in 2012 that her parents told her (and her siblings) that they had Native American heritage.

When asked to justify the "offensive" statement at the press conference that followed the event on Monday, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders redirected, stating, "I think what people find offensive is Senator Warren lying about her heritage to further her career".

As Sanders left the briefing room, a reporter shouted why Trump's remark took place under a portrait of former president Andrew Jackson, who was notorious for the forced removal of Native Americans but Sanders did not respond. "They call her [Elizabeth Warren] 'Pocahontas, '" he said.

Begaye also said that Trump's language "kind of ruined the whole ceremony" but that Native Americans are "still holding our heads high" and will "continue to outlive any kind of racial remarks".

Instead, the comments have drawn the wrath of one Indigenous organisation and Senator Warren has accused the President of making a racial slur. "You are special people". He says the nation owes a debt of gratitude to the Navajo Code Talkers for helping secure victory over tyranny and oppression during World War II.

This morning, Begaye appeared on cable news to discuss Trump's comments and how they were racially offensive. Look, Donald Trump does this over and over thinking somehow he's going to shut me up with it.
