President Donald Trump made a joke about his nickname for Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), "Pocahontas," during an event honoring Native Americans Monday at the White House.

Trump was speaking to recognize Native American Code Talkers who served during World War II when he made a remark about Warren.

″You were here long before any of us were here," Trump said during the event. "Although we have a representative in Congress who they say was here a long time ago. They call her Pocahontas."
