President Donald Trump is back in Washington D.C. following a long Thanksgiving weekend, and didn’t waste much time raising eyebrows. This time, it was during a speech at the White House in front of Navajo code talkers.
Trump spoke about his tax plan and other policies during his speech, but it was an off-the-cuff joke regarding Sen. Elizabeth Warren that took many by surprise, given the context of the speech.
“You were here long before any of us were here,” Trump said to a couple of the code talkers. “Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas. But you know what? I like you, because you are special.”
The remark was said to cause awkward silence in the room.
