Franken Slams Trump For Again Calling Warren 'Pocahontas'

 

February 14, 2017



Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) on Sunday criticized President Donald Trump for recently referring to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) as Pocahontas during a meeting with Republican and Democratic senators.

"I would have said something," Franken said on Sunday on CNN's "State of the Union."

"I'd have said, 'Mr. President, with all due respect, that's racist. Please stop doing that. I am on Indian Affairs. This is completely unacceptable. You really should stop doing that. It doesn't serve anybody.' Something like that," he continued.
