POCAHONTAS: Trump 'May Not Be a Free Person' in 2020

Trump appears to joke about Native American genocide

In his latest Closer Look, Seth Meyers slammed President Donald Trump for sending out a tweet mocking Sen.

Warren officially launched her campaign in MA on Saturday, where she issued a challenge to the super wealthy and called Trump "just the latest and most extreme symptom of what's gone wrong in America".

New Mexico Democratic Rep. Deb Haaland, one of the first Native American women in Congress, said on CNN's "At This Hour" with Kate Bolduan that she took Trump's remark to be about the Trail of Tears. "I want to talk about what's going wrong and how we set it right".

"It's no longer just the Mueller investigation", Warren said. 'Keep America Great!' Donald Trump Unveils 2020 US Presidential Election Campaign Slogan.

"Today Elizabeth Warren, sometimes referred to by me as Pocahontas, joined the race for President,"he tweeted, seemingly ignoring Native American groups' past calls to stop invoking the name of a historical Native American figure in a way to criticize a political opponent".

Trump has dubbed Warren "Pocahontas" over her claims of Native American ancestry.

Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren officially announces her candidacy for President of the United States at a gathering in Lawrence. "See you on the campaign TRAIL, Liz!" the President tweeted on Saturday.

His capitalization of the word "trail" also sparked backlash over the apparent reference to the "Trail of Tears", which was the extremely brutal and forced relocation of Native Americans by the government. Warren apologized to the Cherokee Nation earlier this month for releasing a DNA test in an attempt to prove it. The crowd is also predominantly white, a demographic detail mainstream outlets have curiously not bothered to point out despite having done so repeatedly concerning Trump campaign events.

U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris of California also is expected to make her second campaign appearance in SC this weekend.

"Every day there's a racist tweet, a hateful tweet, something really dark and ugly, and what are we as candidates, as activists, as the press, going to do about it?" asked Warren. "Let him make a full report to the American people and then collectively we can make the decision about what the appropriate next step is".
