Donald Trump has been criticised for using a racial slur during an event honouring Native American veterans.
The US president was welcoming three Navajo code talkers from the Second World War to the Oval Office on Monday afternoon when he referred to Elizabeth Warren, the Democratic senator, as "Pocahontas".
During remarks praising their service, he said: "You were here long before any of us were here. 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."
Two Second World War Navajo "code talkers" stood at the podium, with a third seated in a wheelchair as Mr Trump made the remarks, which were greeted with awkward silence.
They were among 29 young volunteers from the Navajo tribe who joined the Marines in 1942 and created a secret code for the military using the Navajo language as a code.
The president has repeatedly mocked the Massachusetts senator for claims she made about being part Native American.

Fake-upon-us would not be a racial slur.
Trump was being Trump, and those old Navajo Vets loved and respected him as much as he did them. He had a heart warming exchange with them, especially at the end. It was Trump’s backdoor way of sending Liz a message: he’s got his eye on her and her CFPB agency.
Theres no reason to be playing any games during a ceremony with the Navajo Code Talkers.
She dishonored herself and defrauded Harvard. The WWII heroes remain unscathed by that crooked liar.
Oh come on - it was funny... besides the fake indian was stealing a position from a REAL Indian. Warren needs to apologize to everyone over her two bit scam.
More fake news!
There was no “awkward silence.”
His remarks were received with broad grins of agreement.
We need more of this kind of calling out of the fakes.
The libs are smoking mad about this on Facebook. Oh, poor Elizabeth they cry!!!
I wish he would call her princess grey beaver.
shes definitely neurotic...reminds of a grade school teacher I had...completely off her rocker.
Well the faux outrage didn’t take long:
I’m sure someone here will be offended by the president’s remarks. Me? I love this guy’s sense of humor.
Mee too, I got a real belly laugh watching Warren go off the deep end in her response.
There are too many snowflakes on FR, complaining about his funny off-the-cuff remarks. Maybe they all should have voted for Her Heiniousness - after all, she’s got all the humor of a Cigar Store Indian.
...she's gone from Pocahontas to Kunta Kinte.
